Sunday Funnies

Always great funnies! But I'm wary of hurricanes, especially the WD-40!

I'm really surprised by all of the hoopla that the Arizona law, which is only substantiating a federal law, has caused. It's not a big deal! It's been a law for years. It's never been enforced though.
Frankly, it's old news with me. Just enforce the damned laws and this would not have been necessary!!!

00dozo: I thought that cartoon was priceless. Glad you enjoyed it.

Don: Everything I've read indicates this is a new law. While illegal immigration is a federal crime the Arizona law now also makes it a state crime, giving police the power that federal officials once had. The concern of course is that police will go too far, stopping anyone and everyone in a predominantly white state who isn't white. I've seen the law referred to as the "toughest in the country". I concur with putting a stop to illegal immigration. But I don't agree with giving police the power to harass innocent citizens.

But then, hey, political cartoons can sometimes be funny and can sometimes in and of themselves be thought-provoking. I chose this one because it did the latter.

Funny funnies!

WD-40 hurricane! Funny, but sad.

Quirks: Yeah, that's one of my favourites this week.

Great selection as always! Hard to imagine anything funny about the BP situation, but you have to find something to smile about with it! Loved your comment on my blog this morning. I notice you didn't deny the "God-like qualities" reference. Which begs the question, can you change water to wine? And how about Scotch? Let me know!

Tgoette: Water into wine, maybe. Scotch into wine, that'd be stretch. Hey, thanks for your award today. I've prepared a post for Friday.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
