An Ol’ Broad’s Ramblings

February 28, 2007

Morning Coffee 2/28/07 (late)

Filed under: General News — olbroad @ 1:06

Yes, I know, it’s no longer morning. I had some plumbing issues (garbage disposal doesn’t work and isn’t under warranty anymore). I finally got someone over to look at it, but he’s not a plumber (Realtor). As an example of just how different the south is from the north, he told me he has a brand new disposal, never out of the box, I could have (no charge) if this one needs to be replaced. πŸ™‚

Bar close at 3:30 a.m.?

Lawmakers are moving quickly to ensure that anyone imbibing the night, or rather the early morning, that daylight-saving time begins won’t have to stop early.

Oh joy, drivers an hour drunker than usual. Just what the roads need. The clocks aren’t suppose to change till 2:00 a.m., so this is going to make that big a difference? If you have to be blitzed, start an hour earlier.

Police probe death in organ donation case

Police are investigating whether a Kaiser Permanente transplant surgeon attempted to hasten the death last February of a 26-year-old San Luis Obispo man on life support in order to harvest his organs more quickly.

Looks like trusting doctors just got a lot harder.

Police policy on questioning defended

Three months after the City Council apologized to a rape victim police didn’t believe, the Madison Police Department has adopted a written policy that says officers won’t lie to victims of sensitive crimes – unless they have to.

Sadly, there are some women who will lie about such a horrible crime, but hopefully, they are few and far between. The police, however, should take each charge seriously! How many women do not report a rape because of the way police treat many victims? I know of at least one.

Sharemarket slide just a ‘correction’

THE sharemarket slide that began in China, raced around the world and cost Australian share investors $33 billion yesterday, was an overdue correction and not necessarily the beginning of a prolonged slump, experts maintain.

I’m not worried, and you shouldn’t be either! πŸ™‚

Lawmakers eyeing future energy crises beyond coal wars

State and federal lawmakers from Waco mostly welcomed news that the three controversial plants TXU had previously proposed for McLennan County are now off the table. However, the debate over how best to meet Texas’ growing demand for electricity while protecting the environment will continue, each said.

U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards, D-Waco, said the change in plans represents a positive step forward.

Everybody wants cleaner sources of energy, but when they come up with an idea (cleaner burning coal, nuclear) they go out of their way to stop the effort. These people are confusing me.

Major donor among those upset over Wren cross

A major donor to the College of William and Mary is among the college’s alumni who have voiced strong opposition to a decision to remove a cross from permanent display in the university’s Wren Chapel.

It’s a chapel! It’s suppose to have a Cross!!!! What on earth is wrong with these people? If they want to open it to other religions, all well and good, but it’s still a chapel, and the history is a lot more important than some PC’s delicate sensibilities.

Winter storm warning issued for FdL area

Snow and sleet is expected north of a line from Milwaukee to Madison late tonight, with scatter thunderstorms possible. Snowfall of 3 to 5 inches is expected. Winds up to 30 mph are expected to produce blowing snow. Ice accumulations also are likely.

Gee, I’m sorry to hear that (she says while sitting in a house with all windows wide open). Y’all stay warm now, y’hear? πŸ™‚
