Worst. Football Season. Ever. What can one say about the Pack? I don't buy the talking heads on sports radio when they say they should bench Favre for Rodgers this season. We don't have anyone to throw to other than Donald Driver and Bubba Franks, no one to run the ball effectively, a patchwork O-line, a shitty secondary, and on and on. Rodgers hasn't moved the ball in the times he's been in the game, even in garbage time. All we can do is sit and suffer, and read that series JSonline's doing about Favre and revel in the past. It's what Packer fans had done until Wolf came to town in '91...talk about the glory days of the 60s. Now we can talk about the glory days of the 90s and hope that we can have them again in the....20s. Seems to be a 30 year cycle with the Pack. Look at the championships. And then there are the gory years. It appears we are on the gory road for a while.

Cheney's finally getting the finger. I love it when I'm right!

The move is nigh...this Saturday in fact (finally)! We move to Santa Clara for two years, and then probably Rochester NY, my wife's hometown, to buy a house and simplify our lives.

On that note, the SF Chron had an interesting article in its series about how difficult it is for many "middle class" folks to live out in the Bay Area, citing economists' concerns that the super rich now have so much disposable income that it's driving prices up for everyone else. And I thought about how much I miss Bill Clinton, as he made a point in both elections, especially his first, to cite the failure of "trickle down economics" and he repeated that point ad infinitum. And now, of course, we've returned to that mindset. Look where it's gotten us.

When will people in rural America understand that the party they continue to vote for threatens their way of life with its policies? . I'm not sure the Dems have latched onto that message simply enough.

K & I certainly won't be able to afford to buy a house and live here. We do not want to keep up with the Joneses. We don't like the weather THAT much! So the way things are necessitates a move where the cost of living is a little lower and the weather is shittier. I don't mind, having been born and raised in Wisconsin. K & I feel bad for folks our age who were born and raised in SF and find it harder and harder to survive in the only city they've ever known as their own.

W/re to my post last 5/25 about Mike Tice, it finally seems the press is catching on. Heh heh.

This had seemed to be the worst football season for a long time, until last weekend's 52-3 rout of the Saints. Now the Packers are 1-4 just like last year. And since Detroit and Chicago lead the division now with 2-3 records, there's always hope.

The Vikes...so much better without Randy Moss, eh? #4 in the power rankings, eh? Take off, eh?
