Voldemort for President 2008

Voldemort for President. Finally, a candidate that says exactly what he means!

(But how do we know that McCain isn't really Voldemort??)
Happy Halloween

  1. McCain can't be Voldemort. Biden is. Why else would Obama have picked him? Or maybe all the kooks who believe in conspiracy theories are correct. In that case, perhaps Voldemort is either the head of the conspiracy or in the inner circles and has a lot of influence in manipulating elections and picking candidates.

    Ponder this. How did Obama defeat the formidable Clinton machine, and the "most intelligent woman in the world" who was backed but the smartest politician in the country? Why did Biden who could go nowhere on his own in the primaries convince anyone that he has _GOOD_ judgment and _valuable_ experience? For that matter how did McCain defeat a pretty good set of contenders for the Republican nomination?

    Just some questions for the critical thinker to consider.

Summer Day Trip #1: Caledonia, Minnesota

The Wired Rooster Coffee Shoppe -- Caledonia, Minnesota


I've lived in Minnesota for over ten years, sure, but that doesn't mean I've actually seen much of the state. Like most people, I know what I know, and I go where I go. And that's the extent of it. But once I resigned myself to the fact that I wasn't going to make it to Alaska this summer, it occurred to me that I had plenty of sites to explore in the immediate region.

First stop: Caledonia, Minnesota. Where's that? It's a small town in the southeast corner of the state. Before I opened my Rand McNally Road Atlas, I had never heard of it, and before I punched the town name into Trip Advisor, I didn't know if there was anything there worth visiting.

Distance from home: About 75 miles.

Challenge #1: Leaving by 6:30 a.m.

Challenge #2: Taking my dog, Atticus.

Actually, Atticus is a good dog on a road trip, but the forecast indicated that it was going to get into the 90s. I wanted to leave early in the …

Summer Day Trip #3: Jackson, Minnesota

Some time ago in the spring, I found out that David Ellefson, bass player and co-founder of Megadeth, was rebranding the coffee shop in Jackson, Minnesota. Every so often I would tell Linda that I planned to drive over there to check it out, but the morning that I actually decided to drive over there to check it out, I think I surprised her. I’m not sure she thought I would ever do it.
“What else are you going to do over there?”
“Oh, that’s it. Just drive over there, order a cup of coffee, and drive home.”
I had checked out Jackson on Tripadvisor, and honestly, Jackson seemed like it didn’t have much going on. My mind map of southwestern Minnesota was mainly a blank. I knew that I-90 drove through, but I thought perhaps the interstate was a metaphor: Beware ye who enter here, lest ye be on your way to somewhere else.
When I told Tavi we were driving two hours to visit a coffee shop, the idea didn’t seem far-fetched to her. She only had one question, “Do they serve hot cocoa?” I promised …
