Wyoming

I like the Police blotter in Bozeman. But Cheyenne is Hick-Town also. Feel bad about the horse, though.

Horse Hit on Lincolnway

Cheyenne - 11/13/2010

Earlier Saturday night two intoxicated males were riding a horse going South on Pinion. However they lost control of the horse, resulting in the animal to run onto East Lincolnway.

A Dodge Durango, heading eastbound on East Lincolnway tried to swerve away from the animal, but due to the snowy conditions was unable to move away in time, and struck it.

As the horse was hit, the two males were thrown off the horse. Both were not injured, and the driver of the car was also not injured.

Unfortunately, the horse died on scene.

The two males were charged with public intoxication.

The return of song lyrics

That's what you say
Does it really happen to you
Does that explain
This is the season
for this display.
To take a look
In time to move together

Chorus:
Time is the measure
before it's begun
Slips away like running water
Live for the pleasure,
live by the gun
Heritage for sun and daughter
Down to the slaughter
up for the fun
Up for anything.


Could this be true
Does it ever happen to you
And can you prove
That wheels go
'round in reason
You take a step
In time,
To move together

Chorus

You walk, the way
You take, the path
To be, assured
You draw, a graph
The scale, you use
Is all, on black
Be brave, the weight
Will make, the heat
There is, no way
To take-it back.

Repeat chorus
Lyrics: Does it Really Happen?, Yes [end]

Stagecoach rules of conduct

Wells-Fargo Company

Notice to Passengers of This Stage Line

Adherence to the following rules will insure a pleasant trip for all:
Abstinence from liquor is requested, but if you must drink, share the bottle. To do otherwise makes you appear selfish and unneighborly.


If ladies are present, gentlemen are urged to forgo smoking cigars and pipes as the odor of same is repugnant to the gentle sex. Chewing tobacco is permitted, but spit with the wind, not against it.


Gentlemen must refrain from the use of rough language in the presence of ladies and children.


Buffalo robes are provided for your comfort during cold weather. Hogging robes will not be tolerated and the offender will be made to ride with the driver.


Don’t snore loudly while sleeping or use your fellow passenger’s shoulder for a pillow; he (or she) may not understand and friction may result.


Firearms may be kept on your person for use in emergencies. Do not fire them for pleasure or shoot at wild animals as the sound riles the horses.


In the event of runaway horses, remain calm. Leaping from the coach in panic will leave you injured, at the mercy of the elements, hostile Indians, and hungry coyotes.


Forbidden topics of conversation are stagecoach robberies and Indian uprisings.


Gents guilty of unchivalrous behavior toward lady passengers will be put off the stage. It’s a long walk back. A word to the wise is sufficient.

Dave Barry's year in review

It was a year of Hope -- at first in the sense of ``I feel hopeful!'' and later in the sense of ``I hope this year ends soon!''

It was also a year of Change, especially in Washington, where the tired old hacks of yesteryear finally yielded the reins of power to a group of fresh, young, idealistic, new-idea outsiders such as Nancy Pelosi. As a result Washington, rejecting ``business as usual,'' finally stopped trying to solve every problem by throwing billions of taxpayer dollars at it and instead started trying to solve every problem by throwing trillions of taxpayer dollars at it.

To be sure, it was a year that saw plenty of bad news. But in almost every instance, there was offsetting good news:

BAD NEWS: The economy remained critically weak, with rising unemployment, a severely depressed real-estate market, the near-collapse of the domestic automobile industry and the steep decline of the dollar.

GOOD NEWS: Windows 7 sucked less than Vista.

BOJ says "Read the Onion damn you"

Zogby Poll: John Zogby Coolest Dude In America

October 22, 2008 | Issue 44•43



WASHINGTON—In a poll taken by Zogby International, 100 percent of respondents agreed that American pollster John Zogby is the coolest dude in the United States of America, including Puerto Rico, Guam, and all of the other U.S. territories. The poll results were posted on Zogby.com all day Thursday and revealed that, of the 300 million citizens surveyed, John Zogby not only had the coolest friends, but was also easily the coolest guy in both high school and college. In addition, when Americans were asked who would be the one person they would most like to "hang" with if given the opportunity, every one of them responded with "John Zogby." The poll, a Zogby representative said, has a zero percent margin of error and is potentially one of the most awesome polls ever conducted.

Claim: Kids who say 'yuck' may be racist
Jul 7 12:42 PM US/Eastern

Write a Comment
LONDON, July 7 (UPI) -- Toddlers who say "yuck" when given flavorful foreign food may be exhibiting racist behavior, a British government-sponsored organization says.

The London-based National Children's Bureau released a 366-page guide counseling adults on recognizing racist behavior in young children, The Telegraph reported Monday.

The guide, titled Young Children and Racial Justice, warns adults that babies must also be included in the effort to eliminate racism because they have the ability to "recognize different people in their lives."

The bureau says to be aware of children who "react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying 'yuck'."

"Racist incidents among children in early years settings tend to be around name-calling, casual thoughtless comments and peer group relationships," the guide says.

Staff members are advised not to ignore racist actions and to condemn them when they occur.

Shelly passed away Friday afternoon following a long illness. She is survived by 3 children; Shawn Earhart 19, Quincee Miller 14, and Seth Feare 11.

I don't normally post a great deal of personal stuff on this blog, but thought I would write something. It is a little shocking to see someone you were once Married to and had a child with lie dying. I'm very sad that my daughter will not have her mother there to see her graduate College, get Married and have Children.

I hope she has found the peace that eluded her in life.

The Amateurs' Hour

Is the Internet destroying our culture, or is it just annoying our snobs?

The Cult of the Amateur: How Today’s Internet Is Killing Our Culture, by Andrew Keen, New York: Currency, 228 pages, $22.95

Andrew Keen’s website claims, without a hint of humility, that he’s “the leading contemporary critic of the Internet.” No kidding? The entire Internet? A curious reader might wonder whether such an all-inclusive battle is similar to taking on, say, “music” or “radio waves.” It is.

More specifically, Keen’s depressing book, The Cult of the Amateur: How Today’s Internet Is Killing Our Culture, laments techno-utopianism, free content, and the rise of citizen journalists, filmmakers, musicians, and critics as cultural arbiters. It is a book, in other words, of spectacular elitism.

Around the world, 2 billion viewers - including many of those mythical millions who, Billy Crystal or Whoopi Goldberg inform us, dutifully watch every year's Oscars - would watch carbon-conscious rock stars shatter their amps in view of the massive Capitol dome.

Great Britain wants you to behave yourself

"Talking" closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras which allow operators to shout at people behaving badly are to be installed across England, the government announced Wednesday.

The scheme lets local council workers in a control centre monitor pictures from the cameras and talk to them if they feel they are doing something wrong.

The cameras were piloted in Middlesbrough, north-east England, where they have been used to reprimand vandals and litter bugs, but now loudspeakers are being fitted to cameras in another 20 areas.

Britain has some 4.2 million CCTV cameras and the government's privacy watchdog, Information Commissioner Richard Thomas, warned last year that the nation risks "sleep-walking into a surveillance society".

Human rights group Privacy International says Britain is the worst country in the European Union at protecting individuals' privacy, citing "endemic surveillance".

And a powerful group of lawmakers -- the House of Commons home affairs select committee -- is to hold an inquiry into the extent of surveillance in Britain this year.

The "talking CCTV" move comes as Prime Minister Tony Blair's administration attempts to impose a "respect agenda" by cracking down on petty anti-social behaviour.

Home Secretary John Reid defended the scheme, saying it was aimed at "the small minority who think it is acceptable to litter our streets, vandalise our communities and damage our properties."

Reid added that schools in many areas were holding competitions for children to become the "voice" of CCTV cameras.

The scheme is likely to cost around 500,000 pounds (740,000 euros, 988,000 dollars).

Cold War Fun

There is a book making the rounds in my circle that I read years ago. About a limited Nuclear war with the Soviets. It's about the effects 5 years down the road. While maybe exaggerated in parts and a left slant, Still very good food for thought. We have built a mighty world that could pulled out from underneath us like a house of cards. Best to not forget that. I put a couple of fun old Civil defense Posters on the sidebar for your enjoyment. and Last but not least, how about some song lyrics to make you nostalgic for those good old "Doctor Strangelove" days. From Donald Fagen:

Found a Video for this from the dawn of MTV. I remember when MTV played music.





NEW FRONTIER

Yes we're gonna have a wingding
A summer smoker underground
It's just a dugout that my dad built
In case the reds decide to push the button down
We've got provisions and lots of beer
The key word is survival on the new frontier

Introduce me to that big blonde
She's got a touch of Tuesday Weld
She's wearing Ambush and a French twist
She's got us wild and she can tell
She loves to limbo, that much is clear
She's got the right dynamics for the new frontier

Well I can't wait 'til I move to the city
'Til I finally make up my mind
To learn design and study overseas

Have you got a steady boyfriend
Cause honey I've been watching you
I hear you're mad about Brubeck
I like your eyes, I like him too
He's an artist, a pioneer
We've got to have some music on the new frontier

Well I can't wait 'til I move to the city
'Til I finally make up my mind
To learn design and study overseas
Let's pretend that it's the real thing
And stay together all night long
And when I really get to know you
We'll open up the doors and climb into the dawn
Confess your passion your secret fear
Prepare to meet the challenge of the new frontier
