Taliban or Talabani?

I just found out that the president of Iraq is named Talabani!! Doesn't that sound a lot like Taliban?? Damn, they're coming back in Afghanistan and already in charge in Iraq!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

P.S. I found out his name from last week's episode of Saturday Night Live. When I heard it on there, I looked it up on the internet to make sure the name was real, and it was! It took SNL to educate me about the name of the Iraqi president because whenever news programs talk about Iraq, all they talk about is bombings and killings that happen over there. Oh wait...that IS all that happens over there.

Road sign love

I took this pic yesterday of a graffitied-up road sign close to Sports & Racing in Gosnell. I've seen other graffiti around Gosnell and Blytheville for a while now saying stuff like "I Heart Baby Tracy", but this sign was sprayed sometime in the past four weeks. On the fence next to this sign was sprayed "I Heart (somebody else)," so Tracy must have sprayed that one. 'Twasn't THIS Tracy, though!

Political signs on public property

Are political signs allowed on public property? I noticed a sign to re-elect Dickie Kennemore the mayor of Osceola in front of the city hospital last week. I took these pictures yesterday. Does this mean you can put political signs in front of churches, banks, and schools too? I don't know what the law is on this sort of thing, but I thought it looked strange having a political sign in front of a public building.

I e-mailed the Jonesboro Sun newspaper about it. Maybe they'll do a story about political signs on public property. I'm not holding my breath waiting on them to do it, but as Vision Man would say, it doesn't matter if you succeed or fail, as long as you try your hardest!

UPDATE 10/29/06: Never heard back from the Jonesboro Sun, so I just e-mailed the Blytheville Courier-News newspaper and the CW and NBC TV stations in Memphis about it. Reckon one of them will think it's a good story?

Grizzly time!

It's that time of year again...time for the Grizz to stink it up! Waitaminit...I take that back...they usually do pretty good in the regular's the PLAYOFFS where they stink it up! But this year's gonna be different, right? Ha ha! (At least they got rid of Lorenzen Wright this summer, so that'll mean a few extra wins right there. Maybe even one or two in the playoffs!) Here are me and Barbra Wednesday night at the first home preseason game, where they sucked big time. But hey, it's only the preseason, so it doesn't count! But that new PA announcer they got sucks. Maybe he'll get better.

Superman everywhere at Mississippi State Fair

I was at the Mississippi State Fair all last weekend because my parents have a booth there. Well, that Saturday I noticed that just about everyone had on a Superman shirt except for me!! I was jealous!! Luckily I had brought along a Superman shirt of my own to wear, and so I wore it Sunday! I had to show those folks that they weren't the only ones who could be cool!
