Who Are They Kidding!?!?

So now that the Vatican, that bastion of moral, upright, uptight, sexually immature, red robed chumps have decided to launch a war against homosexual marriages. Umm, shouldn’t they be launching a worldwide campaign against child sexual assault and abuse within the church by priests? So let me get this straight, homosexuality is a sin, but sodomizing young boys and raping young girls is okay? Hello!!

New School, New Beginning?

I’ve been accepted to DePaul University’s School of Computer Science, Telecommunications, & Information Systems as a Graduate student pursuing a Masters in Computer Science. I received the acceptance letter in the mail on Saturday. I should be high on the news, but strangely enough I am not. Perhaps it’s because there was no mystery here, I mean since I am a DePaul Alum, I figured I would be accepted. So, now I embark on yet another education adventure and spend more money I will eventually have to pay back, yippee!

Don’t get me wrong, I am somewhat excited about pursuing my Masters, but a very large part of me just want to be done with school; when will it ever be enough? Seems every time you achieve one milestone, they (whomever they is) pushes the bar higher, so that even more skills are needed to land a decent job!

The Shine is Starting to Dull on Ms. Rice' Crown

The Iraqi Intelligence Debacle continues to churn out victims, next up Connie Rice(?) I have never quite trusted Ms. Rice’s, judgment, or analysis because she is an academic with no “real-world" experience to draw upon. Theory alone should never be used to make decision about foreign policy, especially if the person theorizing has never put his/hers theories to the test. And her public statements have always been a little too smug, and “on-point” to merit much regard.
