Layout Updates

Tagged:  

OK, I fixed some outstanding layout issues. The right column was too horsey, so I made it a little more subtle. This gives the added benefit of more room for the center column content. For you 16% who still have the screen resolution at 800x600 you will probably not see any large benefit, but larger screens should get a better layout. Overall, I think it is better.

POSSESSION of Tobacco Illegal in Karloffornia Town

If you ever had a doubt, if you ever thought for a second that maybe we were all exaggerating with all our talk of health hypocrisy, junk science, neo-communism, and the true motives of these people, this one takes the cake.

Let it be known that the mere POSSESSION of TOBACCO, A PERFECTLY LEGAL PRODUCT FOR ADULTS, is subject to fine in Santa Cruz, CA.

Tagged:  

Please keep an eye out for a missing orange tabby cat - About 6 days ago, our 13 year old male, orange tabby cat disappeared without a trace. He is very healthy, feisty, playful, and a creature of habit - never wandered far from home; came home every night/day. We live in the Point/Shoreland area, between Suder & Shoreland (we live on Tulane).

Nanny State, Part #66-You'll love this one

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070209/ap_on_re_us/driven_to_distraction

You'll notice that part that says, "Emboldened by other Bans". It's really beginning to get sickening, folks. And Texas is rapidly becoming the #1 Nanny state of the south.

Put down that Ipod-Nanny State, Part #65

Just when you feel there's nothing else the nazi busybodies can try to outlaw, they surprise you.

NUTS! When was this state supposed to fall off the continent? I personally have used flourescents since the 70's, but no one told me I HAD to do it. More of the fallout from the smoker ban horseshit-nannys everywhere.

Site Tech Issues

Missing RSS Feeds: One of the new features of this site is diplaying local RSS feeds. Right now there are great local news and community sources, but one will be missing. There is no Toledo Blade RSS feeds because their feed syntax is not right. VoteBula Blog is also not posted due to invalid syntax. This is more of an informational posting more than anything else.
