Stupid is as Stupid does.

Dick Cheney accidentally shoots fellow hunter. How stupid is this. Stupid people engaged in a stupid sport (shooting birds), get into a stupid accident and shoot each other. This couldn't happen to more deserving people.

From CNN: "The vice president didn't see him," she continued. "The covey (of birds) flushed and the vice president picked out a bird and was following it and shot. And by God, Harry was in the line of fire and got peppered pretty good."

This sounds like they are talking about some stupid trailer trash hicks.. and these are people that we entrust to protect our country. How pathetic!

And the Press... As Lou Dobbs pointed out, at today's press briefing 65 questions from the media were about this accidental shooting, and only 17 on other subjects. We are in the midst of a War based on lies and deception, we have a huge trade deficit, we have incompetence at highest levels of our intelligence agencies, and FEMA. We are surrounded by hatred and terror in the world... and our press is preoccupied by a STUPID HUNTING ACCIDENT! How stupid is that.

Still Blogging after all these years

Woa! This month marks the Fifth Year of the Brain Drain Blog. Been at it since February 2001. Blogger was a lot different then, and this blog shows it. Different archiving system, no built in commenting, just a couple simple templates. But Blogger started a revolution in personal publishing, and I feel like I was in it on the ground floor. Its fun to go back and read those early posts.

My most favorite project, In The Groove Podcast now also runs off of Blogger. I see even Roger has gotten into the act.
