I New It!

White House Communications Director Dan Bartlett, when asked to comment on President Bush’s prime time news conference last week, said the affair was part of the Bush White House’s political propaganda: “In this case, we know what the questions are going to be, and those are the ones we want to answer.” So why do we even make them prime time news? Why do we even bother calling it a press conference. Why isn’t this guy EVER held to the carpet by the “liberal” media? God forbid someone gets on the wrong side of the White House juggernaut and gets locked out of the White House briefing room and all that spoon-fed access. That might mean the reporters would have to leave Pennsylvania Avenue and hit the streets to work a story that might be different than the one they have covered for years. It is probably best they just leave their heads in the sand.

    Wanna Box Cutter? How About 100 Or So

    Attention knife collectors, tool collectors, odds and ends collectors. The Oakland and Sacramento Airports have banded together, created an eBay seller name and are selling, at great prices, all the confiscated pocket knives and scissors and what not on eBay. This is hightly entertaining. According to the San Fransisco Gate article, they have made up $16,281.00 and compared to hauling off all the stuff to a scrap metal incinerator, they have been able to get the tools back into circulation. I am sure that some folks are angry that they are profiting from this – and I am not sure if there are steps to take to get back your confiscated stuff after your flight, but at least it isn’t all going to waste.

    Zoo Fest – Redux

    A fine day yesterday as a gaggle of friends and family hit Denver City Park for a picnic and then a trip to the zoo. Three hours of focused walking, I am kinda beat today, but what a fun afternoon. Zoos are for kids, they say, but I had a great time. Monkeys and lions and tigers, oh my. Julie, Ed and Fun Shelly didn’t want to take in the bird house or the Tropical Adventures exhibit. They equated birds and lizards as not worthy – I think it is safe to call them scaredy cats. But the monkeys were captivating, as we just stared and stared at their human like features. They know when the audience wants a show. And the same seemed true for the elephant. She trumpeted and did some fancy foot work for the crowds gathered.
