This is sure to confuse Teddy Kennedy

Bush Bust (the good kind)

In a stunning development, that I'm sure some in the West just will refuse to grasp, the Mayor of Baghdad offers to put up a statue of President Bush in his city.

I can hear Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer now. "Why don't they hate him like we do? What's wrong with those people?"

Put a sock in it!

Freddie Mitchell should just shut up!

That is all.

Patriots are not invulnerable

Do you ever what that show "Myth Busters"? I like it. They take some "urban legend" and try to demonstrate whether its possible or not. It usually just boils down to them blowing something up. But its always cool watch.

Well, we have a possible "Urban Legend" that has been circulating lately. Its goes something like this: "The Eagles have NO CHANCE of beating the Patriots."

I disagree. The Dallas Cowboys have NO CHANCE. The Eagles are playing the game. They have, by definition, a chance.

Have the Patriots lost a game this year? Yes. Actually a couple.

Have they lost to teams worse than the Eagles? Yes. To Miami (I'll grant that Pittsburgh is good).

There's a difference. The Eagles (discounting the last two games where they rested their starters) did not lose to a bad team at all this year.

So, just on the surface, I say the Eagles have taken care of business better than the Patriots. Who's the number one seed from their conference here? Not the Patriots.

Will the Eagles win? I have no idea.

Can the Eagles win? Of course.

Chicken Littles of Enviro-Wackism

News

For those of us who take the Bible literally ... check this out:

Genesis 8:22 "While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease."

Pay special attention to the "Shall not cease" part.

The Eagles will win!

They must. That's all there is to it.

I really like Philadelphia. I like Penn's Landing, South Street, City Hall, Broad Street and the Avenue of the Arts. I like walking on Walnut Street and shopping on Market Street. I love the Italian Market, and the Gallery Malls. I enjoy the Constitution Center, Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The Art Museum, Natural History Museum, Rodin Museum, and Franklin Institute are always worth seeing.

I remember riding the High Speed Line from S. Jersey over the Ben Franklin Bridge in the summers when I was off from school, and swiming in the fountain at Logan Cirle ... in my clothes ... in 90 degrees. What memories!

And this is precisely why the Eagles must win. Because if they lose a fourth straight NFC Championship game (third straight at home) then all of this will be gone ... because they will burn it down to the ground.

So, the Eagles must win.

Stingy? Yeah, right!

Because this whole UN thing about us being stingy keeps running through the news, I thought I'd add a thought.

This guy (what's his name?) Egelund (?) says that because we don't have high taxes (we don't?) that we are stingy. We really want to pay more so we can help people who don't want to work.

Really?

Well here's my problem with his reasoning. I can some it up in one point. The government ain't everything, buddy!

I'd don't know how statistics are compiled, but I can assure you that just counting what money our government gives away (i.e. - through taxes) is but a paltry sum compared to the myriad nonprofits and religious organizations in this country that support all kinds of stuff Eagleman would like (but, probably a lot of stuff he wouldn't ... like abstinence education ... but I digress).

Mr. Eaglehead would probably be surprised to find out how generous Americans can be without the prodding of their government. You see we don't sit around in this country and wait for the government to solve every problem. That's the American spirit. We solve our own problems. Keeping these kinds of busybodies out of our own government has taken a lot of our energies away from solving our own problems, but we're doing what we can.

So, to you Mr. Eaglespit, go get bent!
