5D Mark III Availability

I posted links to some REAL reviews of the Canon 5D Mark III yesterday, and mine arrived from Adorama yesterday as well.  Since I only placed my order on Friday (March 23rd) and I’ve heard horror stories about other places, I decided to write a post about it. In short, Amazon is out. They currently […]

Canon 5D Mark III Reviews

I decided to collect some links to real reviews of the new Canon 5D Mark III.  I wasted a lot of time clicking through links, only to find that something touted as a “review” was actually a “preview” and simply talked about the specs and operation of the 5D Mark III based off of a […]

Funny Status Messages

I’ve decided to start a new category of posts for status messages.  Basically things I see that would be funny as a status message on Facebook.  Some of these I’ve used, other’s I’d like to use but for various reasons – such as I don’t want kids to see, or so as to not offend […]

Why blame Obama for Afghanistan?

So I run across this story where Republicans are blaming Obama for the problems in Afghanistan.  And while I’m no fan of Obama, I have to wonder WTF these dudes are smoking?

Do as I say, not as I do.

So it looks like the government has gotten concessions out of private banks in regards to outstanding mortgage balances.

He must be getting desperate to connect to […]

Don’t bare your underwear?

You’d think TN government would have something better to do with their time that to legislate dress codes in schools, but I guess not. http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2012/mar/16/ban-on-students-showing-underwear-advances/?partner=popular “A House subcommittee on Wednesday approved Memphis Democrat Joe Towns’ proposal that would prohibit any students from showing their underwear in the way they dress.

Another Mitt Romney Flip-Flop

Gail Collins had a good piece i the NY Times the other day, titled The Bad News is Good News about another Romney flip-flop.  Last week Romney said: “The idea of presidential candidates getting into questions about contraception within a relationship between a man and a woman, husband and wife, I’m not going there.” Except […]

I received an email from one of my Senators, John Duncan this evening. He’s touting his sponsorship of a “point of order” on the proposed highway bill, which “called on Congress to face fiscal reality as it considers a two-year highway reauthorization bill.” He says he’s “against the pending highway bill for violating spending restrictions”.
