A Grab Bag of Variety

Over at the Southern Poverty Law Center's The Last Word, there's a story up that seems to capture someof the essence of being American lately:
"Let me see if I've got this straight," the Marine cadet said. "The Minutemen are protesting Mexican immigrants, the anarchists are protesting theMinutemen and the Nazis, the Nazis are protesting the Minutemen and the anarchists, and the Black Panthers are protesting the Nazis, who are American, but also Nazis, like 'We love Hitler' Nazis?"

The reporter confirmed that was indeed correct.

And this is for my friend Kyle, who gets far more upset about toll roads than I do, and I hate them. I think he'll be avoiding Indiana for the next 75 years or so.
In the biggest highway privatization deal in U.S. history, state officials last week signed an agreement to turn the 157-mile Indiana Toll Road over to a Spanish-Australian consortium that will operate it for a profit for the next 75 years.

And, just for a bit of a trip to the past for some of my friends, the Summit Brewery Tour, 2003. Marnie's Brother, Marnie, Scooter, Tall Brad, Lisa, Mean Mr. Mustard, Christy Two Fist, Erik the Hairy Swede, Sandy and Pete. A few of us (and Kyle) will be attending the Summit Brewery's release of Scandia Ale tomorrow. Should have just stayed there since the tour.

I was at the Summit Scandia Release Party as well. Not a bad beer! I can't see myself drinking more than 3 of these at a time though. :-)
