Closing Arguments for Kerry

Closing Arguments for Kerry

Essay by Mr. Marriah Star: This will be my last post/essay/rant before election day. I will be campaigning in New Hampshire over the weekend and traveling to Pennsylvania on election day. Since this is the most important election of our lifetime, I encourage everyone else on the list to do something similar, regardless of if you are a citizen or registered to vote. This is the first, and perhaps the last global election in which everyone in the world has…

You know, it seems like the Bush administration has been doing a lot of finger crossing behind it’s back these days. First Cheney says “I’ve never met you before tonight” to John Edwards in the VP debate….then video turns up of the two men (and their wives) sitting next to each other at an official dinner. He also says he has “presided over the senate almost every tuesday” when “almost every” turns out to mean less than ten times in…

Wednesday night Aaron and I culminated our four year friendship with the reason we met in the first place. Way back in 2000 (?) Aaron responded to an ad that I and Paul Rybak had posted around the OSU campus looking for a drummer. Aaron never had his set in Ohio, so I never got to hear him. On Wednesday we went to a jam session in the brewery district. It was actually the same place (artist colony) Amy and…

“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” -Hermann Goering, Luftwaffe Commander-in-Cheif -The Nuremberg trials, 1946

I tried In N’ Out burger for the first time on Friday thanks to a generous friend from Texas and his “I’m going to get you something for your birthday” ways. All I gave him for his was a t-shirt…I’m such a bad friend… anyway… In N’ Out was cool, but not what I had expected. The burger was fine, sort of like a better quality big mac (complete with secret sauce). Their fries were actually not good at all,…

So it is Saturday…a day off. I’m going to take it easy. I’ll start off by meeting Amy for lunch. So I spend the morning catching up on some things and finally get ready to go meet her around noon. I walk out to my car and find my left front fender bashed in with a note on the windsheild. The note was from an eyewitness who said that just 20 minutes before I came out a Ruddock’s Termite Control…

so I’m eating breakfast and watching tv half-heartedly on a saturday morning. and then..there it was! In the new Honda CRV commercial (the “dog-show” one) the silver sports car that they “trot” out at the beginning is a Jaguar XJ220. Hot Damn! Hardly ever see those in the media any more. The last time was in Gone In 60 Seconds (Angelina says “god, I love this car!”, but I don’t think they actually drove it). Going over to Amy’s today….

I’m so busy now. Last Sunday Amy and I went to a barbeque and then Knotts Berry Farm after that. I wasn’t feeling well, so we only wrode two rides and left. We had free tickets from her brother for “Clipper season pass holder night” so the lines weren’t as long as usual. It didn’t open until 7pm though, and we are both go-to-bed-early people, so that was working against us as well. The two rides we went on were…
