Reminder: I’m looking for blogs that emphasize a geographic region (Southern Appeal would’ve been the perfect example, but it has shut down). I’m also looking for groups of blogs that coalesce around a certain region. Stella Borealis (group of Minnesota blogs) is a perfect example. Email me or post them below.

This is nothing. Many Americans sleepwalk their entire lives away: American doctors are preparing to chill volunteers into a state of suspended animation that could keep them asleep for months. __________ First I read about the reverse scam artists that I posted about yesterday, today I read this: US prosecutors said they captured on Wednesday [...]
Everyone needs a hero, and I’ve found mine: The scam baiters, a cadre of funny reverse scam artists who intellectually flail the Nigerian 419 scam artists. This is a must read. Unfortunately, I don’t know if you need a subscription. Generous excerpts: Scam-baiters have set out to turn the tables on the scammers. The legions [...]
It’s GKC’s birthday. If you missed it, the guys at Chesterton and Friends put on a great tribute to the big guy last year. Smokin’ Joe Tremblay has provided a recap. Check it out.
Not much time for blogging and the Internet has a dearth of decent blogging material. I offer merely the following: Woman gets drunk and hurts herself. A doctor in the emergency room (with an obvious strong paternalistic streak, but within propriety, as far as I’m concerned) gave a prescription: Sooch treated a cut on her [...]
Web traffic drops drastically during the holidays, so I’m not terribly inclined to spend time putting together a great post (“Hey Scheske, you never put together a great post!”), but here are a few things: Are pro-abortion Catholics Catholic? Of course. Canon lawyer Ed Peters explains (via): A Catholic’s involvement in pro-abortion advocacy might (depending [...]

Baseball and beer, again. Michael’s (8) game finished about 25 minutes early, so we picked up a pizza and went home and drank beer on the porch. A friend joined us for about two hours. A pleasant evening. I drank a handful of Oberons. They went down very well, and I feel fine this morning. [...]
Did I say I was taking a vacation day? Fat chance. I’m heading into the office again this morning. Another rush job. This one is for a friend who is moving back to town, so I don’t mind much, but I also have another project that should be addressed. I’ll probably work about two hours, [...]
Whew, 13 and-a-half hour day yesterday: 7:30 to 9:00. Work, meetings, kids baseball. The kids baseball isn’t work, but it feels like it when you’re in a suit and it’s 88 degrees. Things should slow down considerably today, but it ain’t a holiday, either. That starts tomorrow, when I take off Friday for a four-day [...]
Three coach-pitch baseball games in three days. That’s brutal. The first one is tonight. I’ll miss part of it because my other son has a pitching lesson scheduled. I must attend in order to figure out why he’s not throwing like Nolan Ryan yet. I need to be able to bark tips from the sidelines [...]
