#2 Innit funny how stuff that was free to the public for years is now "exclusive" to a huge corporation that charges for everything? Eventually they want to do this to air, water and sunlight too.

#6 My late cousin Lee Mendelson, in collaboration with Bill Melendez, developed the Peanuts TV specials. It’s sad to see that the networks have pulled the plug on what had become an American holiday tradition.

My great uncle, a produce wholesaler (Lee’s dad) and Peanuts cartoonist Charles Shultz were great friends and golfing buddies. There was a framed cartoon on my uncle’s den wall. It showed Snoopy laying on top of a loaded fruit cart, like he was laying on top of his dog house. The inscription said,

“ To Palmer Mendelson, the World’s greatest fruit peddler.”

#7 ^ Someone I was with the other day let off a serious belch and I said "Something they haven't gotten around to taxing yet..."

#8 Soon, the only "innocence" left in American society will be the too-loud assertions of innocence on the part of our politicians, amplified or derided by the presstitutes solely on the basis of how their agenda is being served, the truth and the people be damned.

#11 was interesting how they got the Scriptures into the Christmas Special (with the usual suspects trying to get it pulled).

#12 My great uncle used to fly all over the US and Europe on business. My aunt was afraid of flying so they took a train. Well they wound up in a horrendous wreck. They were uninjured but that was the end of my aunt’s travel career.

#13 Statistically, air travel's safer than traveling by train

#14 Or, tell Apple stick it in their ear and go get the DVD so when Linus' speech gets cancelled, you have the original.
