Presidential Elections and This Blog

On my last post about the Presidential Election, Barack Obama’s Funny, one of my frequent commenters and a good blogger himself, Schultz, left this comment: Well said burgher jon. I hope you are going to join me and other bloggers in a challenge to call and speak to 100 voters…

Troy Polamalu

Don’t think that just because Troy Polamalu crosses himself before every play, he’s not out to hit you like he means it. ESPECIALLY when you’re on OUR turf. He gave the following quote about the (silly) $15,000 fine that Hines Ward got on a play when he wasn’t even penalized….

Technical Gadgets

A few more bits of goodness from the world of technology: The Internet isn’t over. Google announced a solid quarter, meaning we can all stop worrying that no one is out there, for another 3 months. (TechCrunch liveblogged the meeting and posted the video) Speaking of Google… They made a…

Barack Obama's Funny

Mark posted the YouTube’s of a very funny speech given by Obama. These showed that Obama is clearly the kind of guy you want running a country. Not because he turned McCain’s barb of palling around with terrorists in to the joke, “there’s no crowd I’d rather be palling around…

Pittsburgh Sour Kraut

Because Cabbage tastes better dipped in Mayo: Pittsburgh named one of the best cities for riding out a Recession. Too bad I’m moving to Charlotte, home of Wachovia. A Risque store in Mt. Lebanon. Oh my, I will be following this as best I can. Great story on Carbolic Smoke…

Techy Sour Kraut

A few things I noticed from the techy business world that I think have some general appeal in the blogosphere. It’s Kraut with a side of silicon: YouTube Co-Founder Chad Hurley gave an interesting speech in which he compared the internet video industry to the TV industry of the 40s….

Why the Debate Didn't Matter

From a conservative blogger on the debate last night: McCain needed Obama to show up drunk. He didn’t. That’s good stuff. Personally, I agree. McCain looked better then he has, Obama looked worse, but I still think Obama won. However, I don’t think it matters. Here’s the election in Algebraic…

Don't Lose Your Gun

I’m perfectly fine with the city passing the steep penalties for “losing” your gun. I would even take it one step further and argue that there should be a legislated way of securing your weapons (i.e. “Gun must be secured by at least two locks and stored separately from the…

You Must Be Kidding…

I have tried to stay out of the presidential politics fray the past few weeks because I know all of my readers are getting plenty of it elsewhere. However, as a devoted Christian I could not let this pass. The video below is of a speech given by a pastor…

Sour Kraut

A couple quick notes on this busy Tuesday: Mike Madison, a former Pittsburgh Blogger (sorry, had to), had an interesting post at his non-Pittsburgh blog on how the Episcopal Church is splitting in Pittsburgh. This is interesting to me as a member of the Presbyterian Church which is similarly suffering….
