It'd be interesting to know the scope of workplaces allowing employees to watch the Obama coronation. Won't that be bad for business? It is come Super Bowl time.
Granted, the inauguration is only about an hour or so and it comes during lunch time on the East Coast.
Still, all that lost productivity adds up........or does it?
Tuesday night, the Greenfield Common Council hears from the public and considers taking action a la Franklin to restrict where released sex offenders can live and loiter. Greenfield aldermen have been taking their good natured time making a decision on this common sense measure proposed by Greenfield alderman Linda Lubotsky. Over 30 communities in Wisconsin have either approved or considered Franklin-like ordinances.
Meanwhile, here's good news in the fight for kids and their parents and against offenders: the type of information on sex offender registries across the country is expanding.
US News & World Report asks that very question. Some e-mails from readers praised Bush, others did not. Here are a couple of the more thoughtful responses:
We will miss President Bush
On September 11, 2009, we are going to remember President Bush.
Whenever a terrorist attack in the world happens, we are going to remember President Bush.
Whenever we have a fight for the life of innocents, we are going to remember President Bush.
For his faith in God and this nation, we are going to remember President Bush.
George Bush's Presidency
The United States of America is without a doubt deep in the debt of gratitude to a man that kept us safe for 8 years after the 9-11 invasion. If the Democrats had not been so hell bent on destroying GWB, we would have not seen the economic debacle thst has ensued. There would have been a mild correction in the market in early 2008, then the rules would have been changed quietly that allowed people that did not have the money to buy real estate, to buy real estate. Those rules were changed in 1998-99, and has caused the present economic meltdown. GWB and his administration tried tirelessly to quietly change these rules, but the pay for play reached so far into the Democratic leadership, and their mouthpieces were so determined to derail his efforts at a time when the safety of our country was front and center, and a united government was a necessity.
Al Gore was the Benedict Arnold that lead the Democrats, still angry about 2000, into the politics of destruction and doubt that has been the worst thing that could happen to a people united to defeat the enemy that has been seeking this countries destruction now for 30 years, Osama Bin Laden could not have had a stronger ally than Al Gore and his ilk. History will show him as a snake oil selling Elmer Gantry, and that is painful to me because I grew up with him in Middle Tennessee. We saw him for what he is, and denied him the Presidency in 2000. On 9-11-01, we knew precisely why we felt so strongly that he must not be allowed to control the reigns of power ever again.

Because there is a great deal of truth to that cheery Disney ditty, "It's a Small World," maybe, just maybe some Pittsburgh Steeler fans I met over a year ago will stumble onto this blog. If not, I'm sure they're thinking about me today.
What a difference a year makes.
