President Bush Discusses Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Legislation
Nobody who's read this blog for a while can have many doubts about my feelings on the current president and his policies. Here's another example of what I don't like. The President is pushing for a renewal/beefing up of something called the "Protect America" act which I guess semi-legitimized the illegal surveillanceÂ his administration had done in the past. Now he wants his "get out of jail" card made permanent.

According to the story above, it's apparently common practice in the Texas legislature to vote multiple times on the same ballot initiative. They use an automated system for casting votes, and, if the desks near your own happen to be unoccupied at the time the vote is called, it's a scramble to see who gets there first to cast some extra votes.

Wendy and I have been going a bit overboard recently buying new "toys." OK - I've been going overboard buying toys. Happy, Wendy? ;)
On Saturday I bought the new TiVo HD PVR. It was more work than it should have been to get it "talking" with Comcast, but that was Comcast's fault, not TiVo's. It's working fine now, and I can make sure I never miss another episode of "The Colbert Report". ;)

Those of you who have been to our house may or may not have noticed that we have a haunted refrigerator. I kid you not - when it's quiet in the house, you can hear it moaning in the background. It can be a little creepy when you're in the house alone at night.

Now you know why all sorts of bad things happen. It's those damned gays getting married. Or maybe old people. ;)

This is from the video that Dustin Butler shot during the dress rehearsal of BLT's production of Titanic at Cedar Bayou Junior School on Thursday, July 26th. The song is "Remarkable Age" and I'm the gray-haired guy who starts the song. ;)

Normally, "bringing the house down" is a good thing when you're a theater. Not today. At approximately 11:30 this morning, a car drove through the east wall of the Baytown Little Theater building! Here's a cell-phone video of the car being towed out of the building.

Following up on my recent video trend ...
These guys sell the blenders they use to destroy things in these videos. I actually think it's a great marketing gimmick. How else are they going to get you to lay out $400.00 for a blender ...
