Happy Chanukah

Whether you spell it Chanukah or Chanukkah or Hanukah or Hanukkah or any other number of ways, Chanukah (my preferred spelling) is fast approaching.

I wish you all a very Happy Chanukah.

TAKE THE 'RAM' OUT OF RAMADAN

Every Christmas we see more and more stories about Christ being taken out of Christmas. Christmas trees are now holiday trees, etc. What would muslims do if you took the RAM out of Ramadan? They would riot world wide, kill innocent people, chop off heads and hands of non-muslims (remember what they did over a simple cartoon?)

Ohio State and Michigan who wins?

Trimming the Budget on Clinics

The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, in hopes to save and make more money, is hoping to trim part of the budget by at least $633,000 by raising rates in clinics and shifting people around hoping to not have to lay anyone off.

They are going to do this by first not cutting any services in health care but by slightly raising prices such as the sexually transmitted disease clinic, adult medical visits, and travel immunizations -- and is considering scaling back clinic hours. According to Dr. David Grossman, health commissioner.

The Saga of Furryhood

The guy Fred saw who advocated stealing electricity, Furryhood, made me think of the old Robinhood TV show. The theme song needs to be changed slightly, because Furryhood need gas, too.

Furryhood, Furryhood, sleeping in the glen....
Furryhood's been promised gas, the only question's when...
Promised by The One-so far he's gotten none...
Furryhod, Furryhood-------Furryhood!

Dead pets

I know many of you have grieved over losing pets. Losing one to a long-term illness is difficult. Losing one abruptly and needlessly increases the pain. My wife and I adopted the doggy at a Humane Society tent at some UT festival years ago. They told us her previous owner called her Sugar, so we decided to name her "Sugar." Such a good dog. So fucking loving. Just give her a Milkbone. So happy to see you. She'd lie on my chest, both of us snoring away on the couch while a late-night NBA game played on the TV. The kids next door have a basketball hoop.

HIP HIP HORRAY..OHIO SENATE APPROVES UNION BILL....MAYBE WE CAN AVOID BECOMING LIKE DETROIT NOW..

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio took its first step Wednesday toward passing sweeping legislation that would curtail collective bargaining rights for public sector workers by banning strikes and putting the power of breaking labor impasses in the hands of local elected officials. This is what the unions and the Democrats don't want..

Live Stream - WGTE Town Hall: Leading in Literacy

Thursday, February 24 at 8:00 p.m.

Bill Harris hosts this live program that examines one of the most pressing issues facing our community - the problem of low literacy rates among preschool aged children. Children entering school with high literacy skills are "ready to learn" and move to the head of the class. Children with weak reading skills begin school at a disadvantage, a gap that may grow wider as their educational experiece proceeds. How can we break the cycle?

The Hypocrisy Of WSPD

Ahhhh...another day of teacher bashing from WSPD! How ironic that Brian Wilson and WSPD are so strongly opposed to "spreading the wealth" and socialism...yet, they use the arguement that since the private sector is suffering and paying more for benefits...the teachers should share in the misery of the private sector. Don't share the wealth...just the misery...as it fits our agenda.
