Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Okay so the bail out bill passed both the house and the senate yesterday. The bill was 1071 pages for $787 billion and no one read the whole thing. I can't believe our Senators and Congressional representatives didn't read it. At $734 million dollars per page you'd think they would have at least made an attempt. My take - REPLACE THEM ALL.

Fanny May, Bank of America, Citi Group and one other bank that I didn't get written down have decided not to pursue any more foreclosures until March. Each of these banks got more than $35 billion from the first bail out bill which they used to buy other banks. DAMN IT'S BIG OF THEM TO HOLD OFF FOR A MONTH ON THE FORECLOSURES - I'M SURE EVERYONE AFFECTED WILL BE RECOVERED BY THEN - AFTER ALL THE NEXT BAIL OUT HAS PASSED AND I'M SURE IT WILL GO TO THE LITTLE PEOPLE RIGHT????

Michael Jackson has a MRSA (staff infection) infection in his face and body. They are trying to treat it with great amounts of antibiotics but the infection is immune to the antibiotics. He moved out of the United States after his last trial and said some pretty terrible things about this country. Did he stay out? NOPE WHEN THIS FLARED UP HE CAME BACK TO L.A. FOR TREATMENT.

The peanut butter scandal continues to grow. It is now pretty obvious that the CEO knew they were shipping a tainted product but they have it on record that he ordered continued shipments after he knew. CAN YOU SPELL HOMICIDE???

I looked up Utah State Universities record in basketball yesterday. They are currently 24 wins - 1 loss. On top of that they have a 19 game winning streak going if it isn't the longest in the nation it has to be close. GO AGGIES.

Lance Armstrong is back on a bike. I think he is now 37 and is planning on going on to the Tour de France. There will be lots of rumors about his drug use and all the steroid stuff. He has never tested positive for any drugs - but you can bet the talk will be all about how he uses them. WHATEVER THEY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT HIM HE IS DAMNED GOOD!!!

OK my next post will be on athletes. I won't be able to cover all the greats but I will tell you who is the greatest athlete in history - if you think you know who that is feel free to guess here.

USU was tied for the longest winning streak, but I'm not sure if the other school lost their game or not, so I can't give you any updates. Go Aggies!

By the way, I think that if congress is going to vote for a bailout, that it should be a requirement that they read the ENTIRE thing. Don't you? I don't care how long it takes, that's annoying.

At $734 million per page it irritates the hell out of me that they didn't read it.
