Who are you talking 'bout...

In another attempt to sell parental discipline,one must read this odd piece titled Barbarians and Wimps: America's Boy Problem These parts caught my eye:
Where are today's barbarians? Moore locates them at the local shopping mall, wandering about in packs, recognizable by their sloppy dress, their lack of linguistic ability, their crudeness of manners, and their treatment of women. Barbarians do not need words nor use them, they communicate to each other through guttural grunts, shrugs, and various noises. When barbarians actually use words, their speech is most likely to be laced with profanity.


I think it's time for another uncouth and loudmouthed gathering for uncivilized drinking, guttural grunts, shrugs, and various noises.

Wimps, on the other hand, look to women for emotional support, consider girlfriends to be conversation partners, and look to women for pity. They are shameless.


Let's be shameless and invite all wonderful women we know.

I'm thinking August 2nd, at the Zeitgeist so we can troll for new readers from the Drinking Liberally crowd.n It's kind of close to BART. But any suggestions are welcome. Besides, Generik and Paperwight will be, hopefully, able to attend

Unrelated request...

Can you change the link to my blog PSoTD (Political Site of the Day) to http://www.psotd.com ? You currently have it as aboutpolitics.blogspot.com, but I moved from blogspot a bit ago. Thanks!

Tentative yes. Does this mean I have to wear something "edgy"?

How about the normal time of 6pm to whenever? Of course we can get there earlier to secure one of the picnic tables.

I also hear the tamales are delicious.
