  • Vote

    November 2, 2004 is Election Day in the states. Remember to vote. 🙂 I will be there Tuesday morning, and I’ll probably say who I voted for Tuesday afternoon. However, I’ll drop one big hint: I lean toward the right side of the fence.

  • spam attack

    looks like someone has tried to spam the blog. Time to keep an eye open….

  • Sports stuff

    Kansas Finally ends a long drought of a winless streak against Kansas State — which was worthy of a homecoming tear-down of the goalposts. In the overall records, K-State would have had to have a much longer streak to catch up to the number of wins KU has had on them in the past. Joe […]

  • More SLT ramblings

    Local Resident Richard Heckler had a Letter to the Editor in today’s J-W about the South Lawrence Trafficway. He also posted it to Larryville. Some of his opening paragraphs were cut, focusing on the issue of a Traffic Light that is along the existing stretch. A recent fatality accident and the proximity to the local […]

  • It’s an interesting sports weekend

    First off, we’ve got a NASCAR race at the Kansas Speedway. Looks like “Front Row” Joe Nemechek will be the pole sitter. KU will be facing K-State in the Sunflower Showdown Saturday evening. K-State is favored by only four points. Oklahoma and Texas will face in the Red River Shootout off at the Cotton Bowl […]

  • Trip around the Sun…

    I maintain a list of birthdays an Anniversaries, and this week, a couple of my “inner circle” friends had birthdays. Last Saturday (9/25) was the first Birthday of Rylie Carson. I’ve known her mom, Allison, since about 1993, and have tried to keep in touch with her family since about ’96. Allison was a big […]

  • Debate Results

    I must confess, I did not watch the presidential debate last night. However, I saw Fark link to conflicting opinions as to whether Bush or Kerry won the first debate — and Fark posted both under “Obvious”. Somehow, I just think that this reflects the polarized nature of this year’s elections. Those that suppoted Bush […]

  • SLT Musings

    The local paper has done a story about the status of the South Lawrence Trafficway highway project — which, as the local highway guru, I have a perticular interest, and have been observing since about 1990. As it stands, the earliest the SLT could be completed is 2012, based upon the idea the legislature would […]

  • Klingons for Kerry

    Saw this article on the Drudge Report a while back. A group of Oregon residents dressed up like Klingons for the release of a Star Trek DVD at a local record store. These Klingons state they support Kerry because “A good war is based on honor, not deception… The first warrior, President Bush, deceived us […]

  • More on the football fiasco

    The fisco regarding the White City-St. Marys academy football game, where St. Marys refused to play with a female player suited up, has apparantly made the news wires, as well as managing to get my mug in the local Rag. (Story and Afformentioned ugly mug from the Journal-World) In addition, the Kansas State High School […]
