I thought this was a funny comic...maybe we should worry about ourselves before other countries?
This is a news story about a 12 year old dutch girl who gave birth. Although a little sick nothing hugely groundbreaking there, until you read they think it may the father. The father who already did two years for sexual assault on another one of his daughters. The father who won custody from the mother of the little girl. Wait what?? He spend time in prison for sexually assaulting his daughter and then they award him custody of another. Thats like you kid getting eaten by a tiger but you saying hey lets give the tiger another chance and send in your next oldest kid. What?
While reading boston.com today I ran across this article on the Red Sox wanting to expand hard alcohol availability at Fenway. The story itself is rather tame, with the usual things happening. The Red Sox saying yes, the police saying it would be a threat to safety. I understand both stand points on this, although I doubt there would be any visible difference at Fenway if they served hard alcohol. It's not like they limit the amount of beer you drink or anything. To me this would be great because it means I would actually have something to drink at the Sox game.
The thing that really got to me was the comments. There are so many that talk about the fact that hard alochol gives you a different kind of buzz and how it would turn Fenway into less of a family friendly environment. First off alcohol is alcohol, if you drink enough of it you will still get drunk...case closed. Second of all have these people been to Fenway in the last 10 years? It's been quite a long time since Fenway was a family friendly environment. There are always nasty drunks, slobbery drunks, slutty drunk, clueless drunk and every other kind of drunk at the game. So why not make a little bit more money and let those who can't or don't drink beer partake. I mean the Garden has bars that serve hard alcohol, where is the problem.
This got me thinking and I think I have isolated the problem. Any guesses? Thats right its responsibilities. When you actually read what people are saying its all about the fact that the populace can't be trusted with hard alcohol. Somehow its the alcohols fault? I mean look this is basic personal responsibility. Do you think that people are going to get more drunk because they can buy hard alcohol, they will just buy 5 more beers because they are cheaper and reach the same affect. But that's ok because hard liquor is evil, beer is only kinda bad. Stupid bastards.

So MW and I have an announcement, although I would imagine most who read this already know, but we are expecting a little one in late August! We are both very excited about this and can't wait to meet the lil guy! For those of you who are interested I have decided to start another blog, Pregnancy: The Final Frontier . When I first found out we were expecting I was a little panicky, as most people would be. So I went to the place that always seems to have the answers, the Internet. However this time I was sorely let down by my old buddy, it seemed like everything on the web revolved around the Mom. Now granted the Mom is a huge part of the equation, but so is the Dad. So, in discussion with MW, I have decided to set off on my own to try and give some of the weary/excited/stressed/confused Dads to be an insight into my experiences in pregnancy. Now ladies rest assured this will not be completely geared towards men, for it being geared towards one partner only is the current issue with these blogs and self help places. Pregnancy involves two people, not one as many peoples in-law, friends, strangers may think. So check it out if you want updates on whats happening with MW and I, if you have any questions, or if you are just plain curious on what the heck happens!
Keep in mind that the blog is still under construction, it will get better I promise.

I love this story. In fact its probably one of the great comedies of this generation. In what far away world do you get off calling the police on the owner of the house you just broke into?
I am sorry that you seem to think that law enforcement should prevent him from taking any means necessary to assure that his home is properly guarded.
This is one of the major things wrong with the world today. He broke into another guys house, you don't get to then call the cops because you are afraid he may have a gun. You break in you take the chance you jackass
More to come later....
