Catfish had this to send today:


*I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just assholes.

*I've learned that you can get by on charm with shallow people for about fifteen minutes. After that, you'd better have money or a big weenie or huge boobs.

*I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others - many are more screwed up than you think.

*I've learned that you can keep puking long after you think you're finished. (I can attest to that fact--ed)

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.

There's a flaw in the Dilithium crystals, and it's causing a warp coil overload. If polarity cannot somehow be reversed, the propulsion systems are all going to blow.

At this point, Captain leads Away Team down to the surface to examine some ancient Kirrillian artifacts, leaving Commander Trombone with the con. Captain names Counsellor Complaisance, Ensign Sweetcheeks, and Whoopsie Golfarb to form the team, along with two expendable Security crewmen. Token android is dispatched to Holodeck One to input a Mickey Spillane program, wherein he (it) will seek solutions to the problem confronting the ship. To be continued�

I keep telling Dave to start a blog!

Douglas Chandler waxed elequent on the looming strike at my plant and the aftermath a a plant shutdown:

The salary people won't make out whole lot better in a lot of instances. They may get offered jobs in other locations, but pulling up roots, leaving family and friends behind? Some will get early retirement offers that they will take just so they can stay in the area even though it will drop their long term income. Others will leave, have to prove themselves all over again. Go crazy in start up plant operations. They'll see a good share of divorce, depression, and boozing.

My fear is that you'll end up in some third world location on a tropical island with nooky all over the place and you'd never blog again.

Why do I need to write when I get such good emails?
