Boy, you sure can blog about a lot of different kinds of stuff. I guess the topics that you choose to blog about say a wee bit about you as a person. For instance, here's the kind of blog that I imagine Crackbass would produce if he were ever inclined to blog:

And here's a battle for Civil Rights that I bet Crackbass could finally get behind:

And while I enjoyed the article, I'm still not sure which exact part of the Consitution guarantees us the right to get drunk in our own homes. Maybe some drunken law student had torn that page out of my Con Law textbook.
And it's good to know that the U.S. is willing to play ball with other technologically advanced, industrialized nations when it comes to matters of global safety.

Global climate shifts and rising oceans? Well, the other 7 members of the G8 say that these matters are important enough to address immediately and to take action to prevent, even if it means restructuring their economies in ways which cause some short term growing pains, but which are ultimately more environmentally friendly. Americans, however, are not a bunch of rubes that just fell off the turnip truck, and we ain't going to cut into our profit margins just to overt some kind of world-wide, catastrophic environmental shift. I bet the real reason those other countries are banding together against us is that they hate our freedom and our democracy. There seems to be a lot of that going around lately. By the way, toward the end, this article contains some fascinating stuff regarding what happens when George W. rides his bike too fast. Sounds like good stuff for a short children's book or after school special. Maybe the secret service should get him some training wheels.

"One thing people should be able to do is drink in their own house," Laverriere told The Boston Globe. "That's the beauty of the land of the free."

I prefer not to be likened to sex offenders. Expect to hear from my lawyer, "Fathead" Bloom, and my personal protector/superhero/bodygurad, The League
