Water Falling From the SKY!

We have something new happening here in Southern California. Water is falling from the sky. I don't recall seeing anything like it. Old timers say they saw this happening many many years ago. Maybe they are telling tall tales and having some fun at my expense. I don't know whether to believe them or not. I think they are lying.

I do think I have heard of this happening before in other places. But it is like those stories of spontaneous human combustion. You just half believe that such a thing is possible, but not really. I don't quite know what to make of it. Will this put the bottled water business out of business? This is free water. All you have to do is set out a bottle or something and get free water.

There's just no explanation for it. What next? The sun rising in the West?

My Latest Web Site Creation

Explanation for it is a few posts below this one. It is for Erin Rametta, a marvelous L.A. indie recording artist.

The Latest Assault on Women -- in Oklahoma

Oklahoma has invented a new way to demean, insult and assault women. It's a law aimed at any woman who seeks an abortion. She can have the abortion all right. But first she has to have a long counseling session with her doctor. This is to prevent the bubbleheaded bimbo from doing anything rash. And we all know that all women are essentially bubbleheaded bimbos who can't be trusted to make up their own minds about anything without a long session of "counseling" from some doctor, probably a man who is against the idea of abortion altogether, no matter what the circumstances. And no matter what the bubbleheaded bimbo really wants and needs.

For example maybe she's been raped. Well, no matter, she needs counseling anyway before she commits murder in her womb. Or maybe she's single and poor and can't take care of a baby. Or maybe giving birth would actually endanger her life. Never mind that, God and the Oklahoma Department of Health both say she should take the risk.

First, she has to sit through the counseling session, a long, boring, drawn-out counseling session. And after that if she actually decides on an abortion anyway, if she can find a doctor to do it, she has to answer a list of questions. Here they are.

• Date of abortion
• County in which abortion performed
• Age of mother
• Marital status of mother
• Race of mother
• Years of education of mother
• State or foreign country of residence of mother
• Total number of previous pregnancies of the mother

And a bunch of other intrusive queries. The list of questions and her answers will be published on the Internet. Anyone with half a brain (and I am sure there are plenty of those in Oklahoma) will be able to figure out just who in their small town went seeking an abortion.

So much for privacy and the ability to make difficult decisions without everyone in town knowing who you are and what you are up to.

Why Obama Got a Nobel Peace Prize

Because he's not George W. Bush. People all over the world appreciate that a lot. Now let's hope it pressures him to actually do something to promote peace. Like bringing the troops home.

My Newest Web site.

I do a Web site for someone every once in a while. I'd like to call to your attention the site I built for a terrific young singer here in Los Angeles. This site has samples of some of her indie recording work.

Welcome to the Web site of Erin Rametta, a native of South Carolina. Click here.

Erin is my wife's friend and singing partner. My wife is her backup singer on some of Erin's records and personal appearances around town. They are a wonderful team.

Outrageous TV Spot Attacking Same Sex Marriage

What next? An ad for burning witches at the stake? Come out of the 14th Century, people.

And did you get that: "They want to bring the issue into my life, they want to take away my freedom" The right wing bigots just can't discuss an issue without lying. They just have to lie because their position shrivels under the strong light of the truth.

Latest Letter to the LA Times that Won't Get Printed

The health reform debate has gotten way off track. It is astonishing that so many lies have been woven around the issue. Death panels, (bye by gramma), the government will assign you a doctor, illegal immigrants will get free health care, the government will set doctors' wages.

The only thing that has any ring of truth is that illegal immigrants will get free health care. It's true. They will get free health care at everyone else's expense in emergency rooms, which are not adequate for actual health care, only for emergencies.

Meanwhile when illegals and their children get sick they will be free to infect the rest of us because Congress isn't smart enough to include them in any national health care plan.

Republican Death Panels

The NYT today published, the full story of the Harvard study that says 45,000 Americans die each year because they don't have health insurance. Here is one graf:

The Harvard study found that people without health insurance had a 40 percent higher risk of death than those with private health insurance — as a result of being unable to obtain necessary medical care. The risk appears to have increased since 1993, when a similar study found the risk of death was 25 percent greater for the

The piece includes a link to a PDF of the study.

I have a label for Republicans in Congress blocking Obama's health care reform: DEATH PANELS.
