First rant of 2005

By now, virtually everyone has heard about the tsunami in Asia that has killed over 140000 people. Natural disasters bring out the best in people, but they also cause the scum of the earth to float to the surface, too. The BBC has a story about a guy who sent emails to the families of missing Britons telling them they were dead.

Absolutely incredible.

He’s been arrested and is going to appear in court Monday. Hopefully, they’ll have a rail handy to run him out of town on.

Happy New Year!

I want to wish everyone a very happy 2005!

I spent New Year’s at a farm near Merrickville with my friends Ken and Margaret and some of their friends. There was much food, much drink and much merriment. The skating on the pond didn’t happen because of the water on the ice, but the impromptu bonfire made up for it.
