Bud–get out of Vegas; hire some people who like fans; jump into the 20th century.

In these days of longer commutes and simmering tempers, nothing seems to set off already-testy motorists like the left-lane camper — the guy or gal who drives in the passing lane and bars faster drivers from easily passing.

CAFFEINATED POLITICS – This guy is hard on conservatives, but he has a bunch of posts on
Blagojevich, including one with the front pages of many newspapers! can’t determine if this is true or not, but Tim at The Other Side of My Mouth posts a darn funny story that I’ve seen before.

Waukesha Carnival 11/16/2008

by thoughtfulconservative

Let’s jump right in to this week’s posts.

Where to begin?

OK, general stuff first. Land Savers posts on what is called a farmer’s last crop, disappearing farm land. You have to get through some messed up code to get to the post.

Tim wrote a very moving post at The Other Side of My Mouth for Veterans Day.

Return from Ohio thoughts

by thoughtfulconservative

I wanted to post this soon after I got back last weekend but haven’t had time till now.

How many places are there where you can be driving 20 mph over the speed limit and feel like you should be driving in the slow lane? I’m guessing New York City might be one. LA another? Atlanta?

As James noted in the comments on a previous post, there are no quick trips to Ohio. “Just extremely long and boring drives through Indiana that happen to terminate in Ohio.” And if you’re going to NE Ohio some pretty long and boring stretches in Ohio. I usally drop down to US 30 after Valpariso, IN and take it all the way. A little more exciting view-wise.

I always chuckle when I go past this sign.
