Moral quandaries

Some people make it very hard for me to continue my anti death penalty stance.

Like this guy they executed yesterday in Texas.

The man raped and murdered a 93 year old woman in her home, stole $10 worth of spare change, and cut out.

He was out on parole from a 10 year sentence, and during the time he served? He escaped once, and raped two other inmates.

What the hell was he doing out of prison?

Here's a fact: if he'd been black, he'd have never gotten parole. Not in Texas. No way, no how.

And because Texas is one fucked up crazy ass state, legally speaking, an old woman was murdered in her home, after enduring what was probably a brutal rape. I keep imagining my own 91 year old grandmother and it's got me shaking.

Assholes like this make it HARD to be against the death penalty.

I look out my window

And there's my neighbor, Emma Lou's house.

Which, of course, means that I know all there is to know about Emma Lou, right?

I mean, I can see her house from my window, you know? Ergo, I know everything about the woman.

I know her freakin' NAME.

McCain and other Republicans have defended Palin's qualifications, citing Alaska's proximity to Russia. Palin told ABC News, "They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."

Take a picture of yourself right now. Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair... just take a picture. Post that picture with NO editing.

Good God, I look scary in the mornings before makeup and coffee! And I just noticed that smudge of dirt on my cheek, too. How LOVELY! ;)

Todd Palin refuses to testify

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/palin_troopergate

Funny, I never realized you could ignore a subpeona because you don't think the charges are legitimate.

Last time I checked, refusing to honor a subpeona was contempt of court and punishable by fines and imprisonment.

McCain-Palin presidential campaign spokesman Ed O'Callaghan announced Thursday that Todd Palin would not appear, because he no longer believes the Legislature's investigation is legitimate.

Sarah Palin initially welcomed the investigation of accusations that she dismissed the state's public safety commissioner because he refused to fire her ex-brother-in-law, a state trooper. "Hold me accountable," she said.

But she has increasingly opposed it since Republican presidential candidate John McCain tapped her as his running mate. The McCain campaign dispatched a legal team to Alaska including O'Callaghan, a former top U.S. terrorism
prosecutor from New York to bolster Palin's local lawyer.

St. Anthony

So.

Yesterday I had to go out. And of course I couldn't find any of my bras. Anywhere. I searched the entire house. Multiple times.

My friend Kris from church was on the phone with me, in paroxysms of glee because of my ranting about my bra.

And I said to her, "You know, Kris, if I were still a Catholic, I could just pray to St. Antho..HOLY COW THERE IT IS!!!"

Boom. Say the man's name, and your bra appears. In a place you looked at LEAST three times.

hitchhiker has a theory that Tony steals stuff just so he can take credit for returning it when we get around to begging.

I think he's right. :P
