Not on the porch, but still in the house

So I find out 11:30pm yesterday that it was FRIDAY. Yeah, it has been that kind of week.

~Recent Supreme Court ruling regarding gun ownership

Actually I have been talking about the issue here for about a minute. Here are some of the most recent posts with interesting discussions.

Policing ourselves

Still on my mind. Kane saw it as well.

MySpace/Facebook

Finally broke down and ventured in the world of social networking. I’m doing this because I am looking for ways to expand marketing for our business. Man! I’m just baffled over how many 40+ year old are frontin’ as if they are 19.

Still no Katrina-esque love from the media for the folks affected by the floods

In this particular article, you will not see close up shots of tears streaming down the faces of folks who lost all of their belongings–this in spite of reports that some of the levees are still breaking. I’ve talked about this before.

Question worth thinking about

Is it better to be loved or respected? An age-old question, but certainly still worth asking from time to time.

    i always thought the question was loved or feared, with respect as the medium for either. that is, is it better to be respected because people fear you or because they love you? of the two, i think love is preferable, but as long as the respect is there, depending on who’s doing the respecting, it may not make as much difference.
