Losing Your Head

12 hours... 750 miles on some great American roads.... 200 dollars in gas.... a rental Volvo that drove like a champ.... top temperature outside.... 122 degrees.

Still needing a couple of days to recoup.

Easiest road trip I've ever taken, though. Gas prices have cleared the roads out West, no doubt.


How to make a Republican's head explode.

9/11 canine hero to be cloned: California lab:

"WASHINGTON (AFP) - A dog that sniffed out survivors from under the rubble of New York's World Trade Center after the 2001 terror strikes is to be cloned, the California-based firm conducting the procedure said."

We're #1! U.S.A! U.S.A.!

How much money do we spend fighting this and how many people do we lock up?

War on drugs is going about as well as the War on Terra.

Americans are world's top drug users: study


"Hey y'all, watch this"

SC teen struck, killed by Six Flags coaster in Ga:

"AUSTELL, Ga. - A teenager was decapitated by a roller coaster after he hopped a pair of fences and entered a restricted area Saturday at Six Flags Over Georgia, authorities said."


Brain scientists discover why adventure feels good:

"LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists have identified a primitive area of the brain that makes us adventurous -- a finding which may help explain why people routinely fall for 'new' products when shopping."

Glad to hear the roads are clear, b/c I'm about to embark on a KC to Ohio to South Carolina and back the same way roadie. Grabbing the kids so I am psyched regardless of miles and gas prices. Forgot to mention I was in the great state of Alabama two weeks ago and was shocked that they took the posters of you down from all of the post offices. Must have bigger fish to fry or something.

My posters are down!?! That's bullshit. I don't handle being 'less wanted' very well.

Stay safe on trip, T. and have fun with the kids!
