You can often hear comments about social media in general, twitter in particular, being a waste of time used to follow celebs and post pointless updates about getting your oil changed. There is much more to it, though…and last week I saw a prime example here in the Capital City. Here is some…
Racism, @tonyharriscnn and Kobach
Moments ago referring to the Arizona Immigration law and being stopped by an officer
@tonyharriscnn: "Can he initiate an inquiry of the people in my car... Say I've got 10 other people in my car and I check out fine"
Kris Kobach: " Yeah, that's a great question... while the officer is talking to the driver, he notices something suspicious about you that indicates that a crime has been committed or some sort of criminal activity whether it's immigration or anything else yeah you are also subject to possibly being asked questions or detained"
You've got an 10 PASSENGER CAR Harris? No you don't, no one does. But your racist stereotype does, doesn't it? How fitting that you had another racist Kobach explain that as a passenger of a car where the driver has done nothing wrong, you can be detained under the suspicion of immigration. Terrible.
You guys do amazing work and I don’t think are thanked enough. You are the conduit between the City and her people, events and the advantageous, eats and the hungry, the think bigs and the rethinkers, hot spots and the hot shots, bars and the thirsty, the out-of-towners and the townies. You entertain and educate us. You are not about politics that exclude you are inclusive. You help both...

Amazing moment and history being made in the House on CSpan right now
Watching Little Shop Of Horrors
During the final stand and song of the plant "Audrey II"
Paige: (age 9) The plant is a girl?
Camron: (age 7) (sternly)It could be a boy or a girl, Paige!
Paige: Well, the plant just said 'I'm a mean green mother'
Leaving The Dr.'s Office
I hobbled to the lobby on crutches with my new cast while Jen got the car and a little old lady sat waiting for a ride also
Little Old Lady: (pointing to Jennifer) "Did she break your leg"
Me: "No she don't listen when she's told so I broke it off in her ass"
Little Old Lady: (uncontrolable laughter)
When I think about all the BS I’m going through I know that future me is going to look back on all of this and laugh. And right now I wish future me was here now so I could kick him in the nuts and tell him to to quit fucking laughing cause this shit ain’t funny
I'm all Over The Place
Can’t concentrate. Haven’t taken any pain meds cause fuck it. No news on Jennifer’s blood test. And some pretty shitty news on my leg. I’ll be out of the cast and back to work in 6 weeks at the earliest. 10 weeks is the high end. This is devastating. I have a pregnant wife and kids to take care of. I support two households. I need to work. I can’t be off work for 6...
Leaving The Hospital Headed To Walgreens
Me: look Honey, Boobie Trap is packed.
Jennifer : Yeah and we could go if you weren't such a SISSY
Test Results For Babaloo*
After @jenrq ‘s sonogram on Friday, the Dr. called and said that Jen’s belly had an high amount of amniotic fluid in her belly which is called Polyhydramnios. The baby lives in, drinks, breathes and pisses out amniotic fluid, which is normal but to have a high amount in there can indicate a problem. Causes of Polyhydramnios could include digestive problems, Downs, heart defects,...
Time Away From Home
Yesterday I tweeted about having 12 hours off from work, which was enough time to eat dinner with the family, kiss @jenrq and sleep. I got to work at 7:20 am and drove a train to Fort Madison IA and got off the train at 1:30. Got my to my hotel room tweeted a little, watched some TV, had dinner with friends and got some sleep. You are required by Federal Law to get 10 hours of rest, that being...

Aliens with @JenrQ
Jennifer: I don't it's our son inside my belly
Me: Uh, OK then what is?
Jennifer: Did you ever see the Alien movies? This thing is pushing so hard trying to get out of me right now I think it's going to rip thru my skin. I don't think it's human. It's an Alien, I'm sure of it.
Me: (thinking) Where in the HELL can I get a flame thrower?

At Gage Park
After Camron (age 7) climbing the concrete shoe he made an observation to Payton (age 12)
Camron: Wow, there are a lot of phone numbers up here.
Payton: (Sarcastically) You should call 'em.
Camron: (Matter-of-factly) Well it does say to 'call for a good time'
Just Waking Up
This bout to get up in IA and get on a train and realize I missed the Parade, the @rethinktopeka meeting and TWO Topeka street parties?
Pat Riley state of mind

Taking Josephine Home
These days are very difficult. I go to Chicago and see my daughter there or she comes here to Kansas, each time it recharges me. Each time it’s over it destroys me. We are leaving in an hour but first we are going to go to the park next door and I’m going to push her little frame in a swing. God help me and give me strength.
And The Rockets Red Glare
