The Coolest 8 Year Old In The World

Do it, Gore! He's my man all the way. It would do the country a world of good to elect this man who should have been President in 2000.

Gore chases Oscar nod, possible 2008 bid:
"NEW YORK - Al Gore is waging a fierce campaign for recognition and an Oscar statuette for his global warming documentary, while reviving talk that he's pursuing a bigger prize: the presidency."

If Gore doesn't run then I'm voting for this 8 year old......

The Coolest 8 Year Old In The World Talks About O'Reilly



....Cause you know the kids are alright:

In New Congress, Seniority Takes Back Seat to Spirit:
"They call themselves the �30-Something Working Group,� a loose collection of House Democrats in their 30s and 40s who have begun making waves.

During the campaign season, the group took to the floor of the House nightly to give speeches during a period known as special orders, when lawmakers members are permitted to speak for up to an hour about any topic after the day�s business is complete."

I've been a Craigslist user since 1999 when I first moved to San Francisco. It has been amazing to see the growth of the site. In San Francisco there is virtually nothing you can't find on CL.

If Craig wanted to make money and/or take this company public it would make Yahoo/Google combined look like your local dollar store.

Craigslist Meets the Capitalists:
"Jim Buckmaster, the chief executive of Craigslist, caused lots of head-scratching Thursday as he tried to explain to a bunch of Wall Street types why his company is not interested in “monetizing” his ridiculously popular Web operation. Appearing at the UBS global media conference in New York, Mr. Buckmaster took questions from the bemused audience, which apparently could not get its collective mind around the notion that Craigslist exists to help Web users find jobs, cars, apartments and dates — and not so much to make money."

San Francisco Values: Fighting off a Great White Shark that drags you 15 feet underwater.

Brush with shark not a first for Dillon Beach victim

Texas Values: Letting blind people hunt.

Bill would allow legally blind Texans to hunt

And San Francisco is suppose to be out of touch?

Monetize? Never heard the word before. Maybe that is why my "business" has collapsed. Loved the Craigslist article. Capitalists just don't get it. One of my utterly favorite places in the world, Orr Hot Springs, does not advertise or have a website, etc. They want to keep the spirit of the place intact, let the word spread by word of mouth through the mostly extraordinarily fine people who love the place deeply. The goal is to make a living, but not to get rich at the expense of the incredibly beautiful Orr...Would you rather be in the woods when a blind hunter or Cheney is hunting? When I lived in the woods in Vermont one always kept one's pets inside during hunting season, and when one walked in the woods one would need to keep talking loudly (exactly the opposite of what I like to do, which is not talk at all in the glorious outdoors), basically not to protect yourself from the Vermont hunters, but from the weekend drunk New York hunters who would shoot at anything that moved.
