- It has been requested by a loyal reader that I address an underlying theme that was present in my blog the other day (the one about social networking sites)...that they made it easy for people to stalk their long-lost friends. I took some time to mull it over, to consider all of the factors of privacy and societal mores and the sociological, psychological and ethical boundaries that could be crossed and came to, what I believe, a sensible, rational and morally defensible conclusion:
Cyberstalking is creepy and weird. If you're doing it...knock it off.

- I took a break from all the chaos in the world this weekend. The news was all bad...Hurricane Ike, rising gas prices, an increasingly contentious and mean-spirited presidential campaign...it was enough to give a brother a severe case of the blues. So, I checked out...went to a double feature on Saturday with Sainted Wife and then spent the rest of the weekend immersed in "The Andy Griffith Show" on dvd.
