Quintessential Alabama, Quintessential San Francisco

Remember this picture from this post?

This amourous Alabama Crimson Tide fan's name is Colette Connell.
Colette Connell, one of the more exuberant fans at the airport, even had her own Saban cheer: “Praise the Lord, God is so good, Nick is now in the Bama hood."
God Bless Her Heart:
Later that day, Connell was arrested for driving under the influence.
The Bama Hood indeed:

Arrested for DUI and STILL smiling in her mug shot.

Keep on smiling, baby. Keep on smiling! The world smiles with you, most certainly.

Wanna see how drunk? Sure you do!

Big wheels keep on turning,
carry me home to see my kin
Roll Tide, Little Doodle. Roll Tide.


Like we're that much more gentrified in San Francisco, right?

Naw, we're just a bit more cerebral and instead of whiskey it was much wine, I'm sure.

I live in the middle upper left side of this picture.

Here's the story.
On Saturday, over one thousand protesters occupied the sands of San Francisco's Ocean Beach – part of new Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's district – in order to spell out the message "IMPEACH!"
Here are some more pictures.


Have to get this in today. The following entities suck:

VIDEO FLASHBACK: Bush Says Sending More Troops To Iraq Would Undermine Our Strategy:
"On Wednesday night, President Bush is expected to announce plans to escalate the war in Iraq by sending more U.S. troops. On June 28, 2005 just 18 months ago Bush said that sending more troops to Iraq would Cundermine our strategy of encouraging Iraqis to take the lead and suggest that we intend to stay forever."

Fat CEO pay seen a wider society concern:

"NEW YORK (Reuters) - Criticism of massive payouts for chief executives is no longer only for union activists and investors. The phenomenon now has professors of ethics asking what it says about modern human behavior and politicians looking to curb excesses."'

"The abrupt departure of Home Depot Inc. (HD.N: Quote, Profile , Research) chief Robert Nardelli this week, with a $210 million exit package in hand, shows how skewed CEO pay can be, ethics experts say.

Nardelli's exit package, which includes $20 million cash severance as well as a pension, deferred stock awards and stock options, equals the annual incomes of about 10,000 retail stock clerks making an average $21,000 a year."


Get a better job.

Girls like her are the exact reason why I miss the Southland and the reason why I can't live there! A Blessing and a Curse!

Duality, man, duality. I hear you, though.

Why? Why? Why? Why didn't I know about the impeachment event? Why did I not read/hear (don't watch tv news) about it in the news afterwards. Why wasn't I there?
