-The NHL mercifully ended the lockout that saw players scattered to all corners of the hockey world. No word on when play begins or how many games will be played but at least pucks will be flying again.
-This site has long been a fan of fracking. Anything that makes us energy independent (and other dependent on us for energy) is a good thing. I've also maintained that fracking was pretty clean as far as energy exploitation goes and scoffed at reports that it was the cause of massive contamination of wells, etc. Turns out I was right and the supposedly enlightened watermelons (green on the outside, red on the inside) did what they always do with reports that don't support their aims, they hide it. BTW, it turns out the Keystone Pipeline project is less hazardous to the environment than the eco idiots said.
-An Atlanta woman protecting her kids put some slugs into the face of an intruder. Too bad she didn't finish him off.
-Who saw this coming besides those of us who were paying attention:
Health insurance companies across the country are seeking and winning double-digit increases in premiums for some customers, even though one of the biggest objectives of the Obama administration’s health care law was to stem the rapid rise in insurance costs for consumers.Shocker! Obamacare is going to do nothing to stem the rapid increases in healthcare costs. The only way to slow the escalation is tort reform (which Obama didn't do because the trial lawyers get fat dumb and happy), reduced regulation and better incentives for doctors and nurses. It's funny how the NY Times seems befuddled that the centerpiece of liberal policy is a bust.
-More liberal dreams crushed. You all deserve what you get for voting this buffoon in for another term.
-I was 1-1 yesterday on NFL picks. I like Baltimore to win a close one and extend Ray Lewis' career for another week and Seattle. Luck will have his time but i don't think it's now. So will RG III and I'm not as steadfast in my support of Seattle.
