Dak if you like mine, use them :)

Salmon dodging bears
and jumping rapids to spawn
in their favored spot

Salmon swim to the
sea after spawning upstream
then come back again

Salmon are tasty
delicious grilled or baked with
dill and mustard sauce

Wonderful salmon
the bright red fish satisfies
my deepest hunger

All the salmon are
belong to me. They are mine
you cannot have them!

One fish, two fish, red
fish, true fish. I want salmon
for dinner today!

Salmon is so good
I could eat it all day and
have more tomorrow.

The Gainesville police department made their recruitment video private. Two questions:

What is the point of a recruitment video being private?

As a public government agency should the Gainesville police department prevent the public from viewing their recruitment video?

Edit--after an inquiry from The Gainesville Sun, the video is back up again.

Comment 696 provided links to the wund and manmade alternate sites for wunderground. Removing it as a 'violation of community standards' was petty. Removing the sites was sufficient. And if they had asked me I would have taken it down myself.

Camden Yards employee fund

From the page:

"As a result, hundreds of employees at Camden Yards will not be required to work and will miss out on anywhere between one and six days of pay. (Note: Employees received two hours' pay on April 27.) Many of them struggle as is to make ends meet and can't afford to miss a day of work. Lengthy road trips are tough as well, as they are paid biweekly. This fund is designed to help alleviate some of the financial burden Camden Yards employees will suffer."

This pisses me off. Peter Angelos and the Orioles players are swimming in money. Just pay them!

Stopping in to say Hello and also....

Has anyone seen the new Diesel fuel that Audi has invented? It doesn't use any crude oil and makes a current diesel engine run so clean it doesn't produce any soot. It is made by splitting water and combining the hydrogen with C02. A gas we are trying to obviously reduce in our atmosphere. I hope this isn't false promise fuel...

I'm not taking the blog down and my sources are in the section in the top of the entry, except for The Economist.


I can only see one solution for us here, Brian. You will simply need to get this guy to help with your blog. This is a far better option, for your readers, than your prolonged absences from the blog. Have you considered buying him a laptop and have the browser's home page be your blog? You know, a subtle hint. :)
