I've also had personal issues. This week, my asthma sent me to the hospital for a few days of observation. Hope the eventual charges don't break the bank - I've been insulated from medical costs for some time - my former HMO had very low co-pays, and none for hospital admits.
I'm in Myrtle Beach, at a Science conference. I'm not doing as much running around this time - I'm still convalescing. Still, I've been able to learn more about the evolution vs. ID debate (yes, the issue still comes up, like those old-time movie monsters you just can't kill), network with other teachers, check out the latest technology and curriculums - the usual.
No time to get to the beach - boo-hoo. I'm going to walk along the beach before I head back to the convention center.
Yeah, it's like that.
I know I'm losing it - I posted this originally, but forgot to add the Blogburst. Here it is below.

So Bush signed a law to create a border fence. Here is an image of the fence as designed by a joint committee of Mexicans and Liberals, and approved by Bush...
"Report an illegal to the Feds and watch the Feds sit on their hands!"
Minuteman 2.0.: The Minuteman project was a publicity stunt; we now need to take it to the next level and have citizen patrols guarding the border.
"Needed: Border Billboards": As soon as sniper posts are erected along our borders, we'll need some billboards erected that read something like this...
The Carpentersville Saga: Carpentersville Illinois is pursuing a Hazelton style ordinance, but as these two videos show, not if the pro crime Hispanics and their supporters have anything to say about it!
"The US Border Patrol and Border Police are Out Gunned, Out Manned and Facing an Enemy with Technological Superiority Over Them!": You knew illegals were coming into the USA daily, but did you know that down in Mexico they are literally being brought up to the border by the train load? The report has the pictures to prove it!

Wild Thing sent some more jarring photos of our uninvited and unwelcome and undocumented "guests"- and no, these are not crazy Halloween costumes:
If you think illegal immigration is nothing more than "good hard-working people, with good intentions" sneaking in here for a little harmless Trick-or-Treat, then these posts from some of the strongest contributors to Guard the Borders will convince you of the ghoulish truth.
Many thanks to Third World County, Mr. Ogre, Freedom Folks, PC Free Zone, and the Independent Conservative.
