I’m on the road today (Montgomery, Alabama) with some time to kill, so I can blog for a change. Let’s see, what’s in the news:
I saw a squib yesterday, I think in Newsweeks latest "green" issue, that the UPS folks are using a new computer program to plan routes so that their trucks never make any left turns. They will make three right turns instead. They say this is to save fuel--who knew that holding for left turns wastes a lot of fuel and therefore contributes to air pollution and global warming--but this sounds like an esoteric homage to our namesake, Mr. Ashbrook. And another example of how solving these problems will come from the Right!
What’s all this about Don Imus? I’ve never found him either funny or interesting, but isn’t the Jesse Jackson-Al Sharpton gleeful sack dance just a little bit much? I watched the egregious Lou Dobbs spend almost his entire segment on CNN last night on this story, giving Jesse Jackson enough air time to roll out several new rhyming schemes.
Says here in the paper this morning that Def Leppard is doing a 50-city reunion tour, no doubt for their Def Listeners. Now, if Emerson, Lake, and Embalmer do a reunion tour, I might think about it.
