Bush is just plain stupid.

I received an important heads up from my friend Gordon about the man President Bush wants to be the next U.S. Surgeon General? His name is Dr. James Holsinger. Google him, please.

Holsinger's record seems to demonstrate that he is uninterested in the best scientific information available; instead for example, he allows his anti-gay bias to inform his medical judgments.

His past writings indicate that he believes homosexuality is a "lifestyle" choice that should be "cured," (his church believes in reparative therapy) and he has compared reproductive organs to plumbing parts as proof that homosexuality leads to desease.

And he's the man America might be depending on for sound medical advice.

That means that along with hearing the usual warnings against smoking and drinking, America might be subjected to GLBT warning slogans like "homosexuality is unnatural and unhealthy!" and "It has been determined by the Surgeon General that being gay is hazardous to your health."
This man could set our country back into the dark ages. He is dangerous.

Please contact to your Senators. Ask them to vote NO to this nomination.
Clinton and Obama have already voiced opposition.

The Senate needs to hear from as many of us as possible - so that they have no choice but to listen. You can email/write/call your Senators or take action here today. It's easy. Please.

How could anyone think this man should be the top doctor of our nation. Does our president's ignorance have no limit.

Maybe we should send Kermit to teach Mr. Bush a thing or two. It's not a real Sesame Street song but it could be. Makes me feel better.

For you Monica

Monica Roberts missed the Belmont Stakes but this battle of the sexes is too cool to miss and almost as exciting as the Billie Jean King - Bobby Riggs battle. So here it is. The announcer is a hoot too. Check out Imawildandcrazyguy.

Rags to Riches, You Go Girl!

For the first time since 1905 a filly won the Belmont Stakes in New York.
What a performance!
Rags to Riches is now the most valuable female horse in the world. It may encourage more trainers may look at training and running fillies against colts.

Rags to Riches, despite a slight stumble at the start, became the third filly to capture the Belmont - Ruthless took the first running in 1867 and Tanya won in 1905. Only 22 fillies have tried the Belmont, with Rags to Riches the first since Silverbulletday finished seventh in 1999.

For some reason I have an uncanny ability to pick triple crown winners and did again this year picking Street Sense to win the Kentucky Derby. I missed in the second leg, the Preakness, but had to go for the only lady contending against the strong three year old colts in the Belmont.

Rags to Riches beat the favorite Curlin, winner of the Preakness, in a hard fought exciting down to the wire battle of the sexes. Monica and I were screaming "come on girl" along with the women of the world. It was fun. It was thrilling and it was history.
