|3/22: Notes on the health care
bill that now seems all but destined to pass... I had a feeling this
was going to happen... but I also have a feeling that this isn't over.
Call it a hunch, call it unwarranted optimism, but I have an inkling
suspicion that much of this bill-- particularly the unfunded insurance
mandate that doesn't take effect for another four years or so-- will
get repealed at the first opportunity and will never be implemented. I
don't know if it'll be through the congressional process (post-November
elections) or if it'll be by the courts, but that's just my gut feeling
3/10: More thoughts on the whole Massa thing... how was Michelle Malkin supposedly able to turn the entire conservative establishment media against Massa so easily? Does she really have that much power there...?
3/6: Too strange to be fiction: Flashback to early 2008-- Eliot Spitzer endorses Eric Massa (Courtesy of John Batchelor)
3/4: I'm getting very annoyed at local newspapers. The first few hours had local reporters scrounging together what news they could put together. However, by this morning, everyone cut-and-pasted the AP article, which did not include much of the information that had been posted in various places. Do local writers put any effort into their work anymore? I think I did a better job pulling this stuff together and I don't get paid a dime for this!

2/15: Saturday's Times-Herald had a story on the Little Valley town board's budget whoops. Part of the problem, in my opinion, stems from the fact that town clerk Sue Koch hired her daughter Jill as her assistant instead of the most qualified candidate. Also, pardon me if I am distrustful of any committee led by a key member of the Cattaraugus-Little Valley Central School administration, given their shady dealings in trying to get their building expansion (in lieu of the new building they had promised) passed.
2/11: What do the Pinball Wizard and David Paterson have in common? They're both deaf, dumb and blind. Paterson's deaf to anybody who tells him he has virtually no chance of winning re-election. He's dumb enough to believe the stuff that comes out of his mouth. And he's blind-- well, let's just say that one's obvious.
