Adam Plimmer is No Longer 2

Since I’m still getting some traffic from people looking for Adam Plimmer, I figured I’d let everyone know that Adam Plimmer has closed his store. I wonder if he closed down the store as a result of the lack of business since he threw his raging fit back in February. In his little “Goodbye Note” ...

Inconsiderate ignorance

I have been reading through CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s blog, and he asked his viewers to share their comments.

From this Yahoo News article, referring to a recent White House news conference along with Tony Blair.

8 bodies were discovered in a field just west of St. Thomas Ontario, and the police are investigating a mass murder.
