Why Not?

Given the reception for Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, CNN reports that Pee-Wee Herman’s ready for a comeback.

If you can get away to sex scandals as a US Senator, why not as an entertainer? Actually the US Senate reminds me of the “Pee-Wee’s Fun House”.

Over The Line

I recycle, compost and use low energy appliances. I take anything hazardous to the appropriate site, and haul tree limbs to the chipping plant. I try to be as low impact as possible, but there are some things that just can’t be compromised, and McClatchy has a story on one of them: Soft toilet paper becomes target of environmentalists.

When I lived in Europe the one item I always bought on base was toilet paper, and I always had a roll in my luggage. I don’t doubt that things are better these days, but in those days the products offered locally were either like the rippled center of corrugated cardboard, or wax paper. You couldn’t count on having access to a bidet, so you needed the genuine, made in the USA toilet paper to get the job done.

There are some sacrifices that people shouldn’t be asked to make.
