    I saw a taekwondo facility named "Koreana."
    Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

      Yesterday, I had snow tires put on my car. When the tireman pulled the valves the air made a nasty high pitched screaming whistle. I immediately checked for shadows.
      "And what kind of head of Security would I be if I let people like me know things that I'm not supposed to know? I mean, I know what I know because I have to know it. And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. " And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of Security will not report you for doing so."
      "Because you won't tell yourself about it?"

      "I try never to get involved in my own life, too much trouble."

        Please-please-please make an audio recording, next time.


        I finally saw "The Dark Knight Rises", and it started out with Firefly brainflashovers ("barn swallow"), then Bane said:
        Now is not the time for fear. That comes later.
        And, of course, my brain happily switched to B5.
        It was important, Dumbledore said, to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then could evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated...

          Just watching Animal House tonight and couldn't help but think "So this is how Londo and Vir met".

              The rooms of AA

              Truthfully, hearing people share about their journey through sobriety and continuing with my own one, quites from Babylon 5, especially some of Delenn's mor spiritual ones, often help me on tough days.

              "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

                It could happen...

                Refa: [to Londo] Let it go. War's over, man. Mordon dropped the big one.
                Londo: What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Minbari bombed Regesh-3? Hell no!
                Durano: [to Vir] Minbari?
                Vir: Forget it, he's rolling.
                Londo: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...
                [thinks hard of something to say]
                Londo: The tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!

                Congratulations on your sobriety, some of the coolest people I know are sober...not saying that I've ever met JMS however.

                  Dr. Fusa Miyake recently reported signs of the Earth being struck by a beam of high energy radiation found in ancient cedar trees.

                  Theories of solar flares, or a super nova, even a 'red crucifix' seen in the skies have been ruled out.

                    Skimming the headline today, I did a double take, thought it read "Not the One".

                        Just saw a headline posted:

                        EA CEO To Step Down

                        Couldn't figure out why I'd never known that the Earth Alliance *had* a CEO!

                          Watching 'Time Bandits' today.
                          As our pint-sized hero steps through the wrong portal, he finds himself in ancient Greece witnessing two warriors battling alone on an open plain.

                          At the point the victor (Sean Connery) removes his Helmet... our hero exclaims "Your King Agamemnon!"

                            Babylon 5: Breen: Narn's answer to swedish meatballs

                            Malachi is the last book in the Old Testament. IN Babylon 5, the prime minister to Centauri Prime (before he was killed by Lord Reefa) was Malachi. I find that amusing.

                              Probably insignificant, though, as I believe that, as with the emperor himself, they simply used the actor's name ...

                              Emperor Turhan, played by Turhan Bey
                              Prime Minister Malachi, played by Malachi Throne
