Alpha 1 is gone. This is my new handle on here.
Why did I leave? Not because of any of you yahoos. It was because of what I felt was unjustified actions of a moderator. It doesn't matter who it was, or what happened. It's water under the bridge now, and time to start over. Maybe by starting afresh, with an new name, and a bit of a more laid-back attitude on my part will help.
A few odds and ends, before I dissapear until at least the middle of October:
-I will not be participating in U.S. election threads. Taking a few weeks off, and looking at the virtual rock-throwing on here, it's just completely turned me off to those threads. I'll be talking politics again, but not till after the election.
-On the election. President Bush will win. Kerry still CAN
win, and I will still hope he does, and support him, but I think the odds are against him. A pain in the ass short term, but maybe a blessing in disguse long-term for Americans and the world.
That's all I'll say about the election and politics.
-The Browns won. Nice win. I'm still not convinced they're going to win more than 6 games. I'd rather they not, and get rid of Butch Davis.
-The Buckeyes did NOT cheat, KROC, but, like I mentioned to you, they benefitted by deliberately calling a penalty in the final 10 seconds, and won the game because of it. The NCAA should seriously think about implimenting a rule that penalizes a team time off the clock for pulling a stunt like that.
-USAir will be out of business before the end of the year.
-Can mother nature please leave Florida the hell alone? THe Sunshine State has taken enough of a beating to last for a year.
Ok, I think that covers most of the news.
Out. When I'll be back, who knows. Maybe after me and the missus go away to a cabin in SE
Ohio for a few days in early October.
Until, for most of you, peace and good health.
