So, I took this idiotic quiz (I call it idiotic because of the pop-ups and Give Us Your Information crap – click the links below at your own risk) associated with seeing your results, and I thought I would share which Family Guy character I am.
I am frightened, now, for I am:

I always knew that if I had children, THEY would be Stewie. I never thought *I* would! But there it is.

As many of my faithful readers know, this blog tends to delve deeply into the more timeless issues which remain on our minds and in our consciousness longer than the usual stories of the day. I post these often lengthy entries as I can, based upon my travel schedule.
Of course, we all value the daily news for politics, society and life in general. Many of you, like me, are avid news junkies and followers of the human experience. If you happen to be missing my words, come on over to TheZoo where we focus on important topical issues that take place every hour of every day. We also have some fun, so stop by often, if just to say Hi. Comments are always welcome.
Fear not, though. My in-depth studies will continue here, as well.

Could the Clinton supporters please explain what it is that is so off-putting about Obama? I mean that seriously — I am absolutely, 100% bewildered at why some of you say that you will never get behind Obama as our party’s nominee.
I am very interested in any Clinton supporters thoughts. Please see the rest of this message. And thank you in advance!

Frank Zappa was always my hero when I was growing up. Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention was the first concert I ever attended. Many of his philosophies were some that too few people know of or appreciate. He had contempt for lying, irrational thought, and saw most of the public as, well, stupid. He neither drank nor did drugs. He was also not an easy man to get along with.
Zappa was also an old school Republican, before being conservative was hijacked by the Neo-Con’s of today. (That’s OK Frank, no one is perfect.)
He also didn’t care much about what people thought of him.
Zappa testified during the Tipper Gore Musical Obscenity congressional hearing. When Sen. Slade Gorton (R-WA) threatened him with Contempt of Congress, he replied, “Go ahead Senator, I already hold you in contempt.”
It is in that spirit that this blog was created.
This blog is dedicated to living a good life. We hope to impart information you can use (or not), fun, facts, and more.
Stick around! You might just learn something!
Update: h/t to Snave. A most appropos Frank Zappa quote:
The last election just laid the foundation of the next 500 years of Dark Ages. — Frank Zappa, in 1981
