"Beginning A New Week"

Won a copy of the TPB "Gang War" , which reprints the Miller issues of Daredevil 169-172 & 180 (already had the TPB of "Marked for Death" which reprints 159-164 minus 162). I really outta just break down and buy the three volumes of "Daredevil Visionaries" by Miller which reprints ALL of his DD's (including the What If? & Bizarre Adventures). I guess you'd have to call me a "Miller fan", since I have so much of his work reprinted in TPB format around here. Got like the first 7 volumes of "Sin City", the reprint of his "Wolverine" mini-series, the "300" hardcover, "Born Again" (which is also DD), the "Ronin" TPB, "The Dark Knight Returns", "Batman Year One", an original set of the "Daredevil The Man W/Out Fear" mini-series (as well as some others in their original comic book formats). Miller's work is one of those few who never disapoints me with his writing.

After getting frustrated with the wind re-scattering all my leaves I'd raked into stacks to mulch, I cooled down a bit and mulched up what I could anyway to just eliminate what I could of this always present "leaf problem" in my yard. In a couple of days I'll have to do it again, of course. Wish these leaves would just all fall at one time, get rid of them at one time, get it OVER WITH at one time.

In the next larger city (of sorts) a few miles from here they will be voting this Tuesday to see whether or not it goes wet. I think the majority doesn't want it to as when I was driving around over there last Saturday, I noticed at least a dozen signs saying "Vote NO!", and only 3 or so in opposition. Those that are for it seem to think making someplace "wet" will bring in businesses and more jobs, but it sure didn't help Cave City (KY.) where I work. Since they started selling alcohol in various restaurants, the first such restaurant went out of business, and the new owners eliminated alcohol when it was re-opened. There's been absolutely no new businesses, jobs, etc. simply because they can now sell booze. Plus, since they can only sell alcohol in a restaurant, this doesn't eliminate the illegal "bootlegging" which goes on in these parts. The closest liquer store is 35 miles away in Bowling Green, which has remained a wet city for many, many years. In fact, when the county voted out alcohol sales, BG stayed wet because it'd been so for so long. Doesn't bother me one way or the other. I gave up drinking beer, etc. a good 25 years ago. In fact, I still have two of the 4-Pack of wine coolers in my fridge that have remained there now for at least 10 years (ought to be good and aged by now!)Sunday:11-04-07

Pakistan's president revokes its constituion , and arrests human rights lawyers. The U.S. needs to walk on pin & needles with this one and not have another "Shaw of Iran" situation happen least they turn yet another ally into one that hates our guts. The biggest fear is terrorists occupying areas in Pakistan where they've developed nucleur tech.

And then there's this whole thing going on with Turkey.

I'm not sure "who" will be elected president come our next presdential election, but one can be assured that he (or, she) will certainly have his (or her)hands full just as soon as they take office.

One of Fred Thompson's campaign people resigns after it's discovered he has a criminal background (no real surprize with that one).
Oprah has problems with her all girl's school with a teacher suspended for being charged with physical abuse to the students. Oprah's thinking maybe individual cell phones for each student programmed with her own number in case they have trouble.

Tomorrow's the election for a new governor here in KY., which, with the choices, is yet another "shall we trade the devil for the witch sort'a thingy.

Gasoline prices on the rise, and not just due to competition from other countries, but speculators using gasoline and oil now as a commodity for trade. Prices may be at least $3.50 per gal. by Christmas, and over $4. by sometime next year.

Duddy day here, today. Rained off and on, and hard. Had a couple of thunderstorms, and now the temperature's going to drop. It's only suppose to be 25 degrees Wednesday night, in fact.

Nothing in the mail today, and I got outbidded on that lot of "Super Goofs" ("natch"). Pulled several pages of tools today at work and put them out, waited on customers, put together a "cherry picker:; same-ol'same-ol'.(Monday:11-05-07).
