Well, I have had plenty to think about lately and as such, I give you another edition of:

For What It's Worth

Iraq is a free country, 2 days earlier than planned. Let freedom reign in a troubled area of the world!

Red Sox and Yankees at the Stadium (aka. that stink hole in the Bronx) this week. It's good to have Nomar and Trot back. Oh and David Ortiz has 72 RBI's going in to the series.

Curt Schilling has been as good as advertised.

The NBA draft looked like a high school prom...lot's of nice suits, lots of high school seniors, mothers smiling, and too much money being thrown around on stuff you don't need to be happy. Seriously, who needs a pimped out H2 with 20's in the trunk?

The Terminal is the best movie I have seen in a long time.

Dodgeball, whatelse can I say except I think I got dumber watching it.

Roger Clemens should start the All Star game in Houston, just as he did in 1986 when it was at the Astrodome.

John Kerry's campaign has yet to even show me a valid reason why he wants to even be President of the United States. He wants to beat Bush, but he doesn't strike me as wanting to be President.

Vice President Dick Cheney dropping multiple f-bombs on the Senate floor strikes me as much ado about nothing in a world gone overly PC. I am sure he is not the first and I'm sure he will not be the last to do so.

Rhode Island, a state with a Napolean complex if there ever was one....I am glad I left there.

If life in College Station mirrored The Princess Bride, the Dixie Chicken is where we would go when going back to the beginning.

What is it about rainy days and wanting to curl up under the covers and go back to bed?

Texas A&M, winners of the Planters Nuttiest fans award. Is that really a distinction we want? Yes we are passionate fans, but nutty is overkill.

This fall I am getting a CHL. No it has nothing to do with hockey.

A friend of mine has the misconception that I am an "island boy", being from Rhode Island an all. Rhode Island is neither an island nor a road. Nor is it anywhere near Myrtle Beach.

Somedays, it is important to live like you are dying.

And on an interesting note...I do not think a woman can become President of the United States. It is unconstitutional. Note the requirements below:

House of Representatives:

"No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen."


"No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen."

President of the United States:

"The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows "

Note the use of the word "person" even before the suffrage movement for positions in the House and Senate. A woman could legally have run for office, though not been able to vote. Yet, the founding fathers included the masuline pronoun "He" in the requirements for President. Even though England had several Queens by this time. A female head of state, would not have been uncommon, nor unheard of to them. I just thought this might be an interesting point to raise.
