Will Franklin get stimulus $$$?

The answer is no.

Franklin’s City Engineer Jack Bennett informed Mayor Taylor and the Common Council that a SEWRPC committee voted today not to use federal stimulus money in Franklin.

But then, we knew this was going to happen, didn’t we?

I am not unhappy about this. We don’t need federal money with strings attached for road projects after all.

Would newspapers have a better chance at survival if they were more conservative?

1) I strongly believe there is a liberal bias that permeates the vast majority of the mainstream media. That is not a news bulletin.

2) I very much want  newspapers to survive.

The fine conservative columnist at the Boston Globe, Jeff Jacoby has a very interesting piece making the case that the liberal ideology thriving in newsrooms is not killing the profession.


The president claims he's a Christian

"I am a Christian. So, I have a deep faith.  I'm rooted in the Christian tradition. I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people. That there are values that transcend race or culture, that move us forward, and there's an obligation for all of us individually as well as collectively to take responsibility to make those values lived."

Barack Obama, Chicago Sun-Times, April 5, 2004

“I am a Christian.  I am a devout Christian. I’ve been a member of the same church for 20 years. I pray to Jesus every night and try to go to church as much as I can. My faith is important to me. It’s not something that I try to push on other people. But it’s something that helps to guide my life and my values.”
Obama, LA Times, March 2, 2008

hen prove it, Mr. President. Prove it.

Bathroom humor

Most people with computers get bombarded with inconsequential junk in their inbox: jokes, stories, cartoons, etc.

Most of it is just what I said....junk.

Every once in awhile, you receive something of note. I thought so with some photos a friends passed along. I was able to track them to a few blog sites, including this one.
