Open Thread!

Hey There Maniacs!

It occurred to me that this 1 PM ET slot might be a good place for a daily Open Thread to discus the events of the morning, trends you see developing and general Hijinks and Shenanigans! Iow….Open threadiness!

What do you think, will you support our old and dear friend Open thread? Or will you cast it into the gutter like yesterdays newspapers…when we still had newspapers and did silly things like cast them into the gutter?

You can vote by commenting!

    I think as the news erupts in techno douchebaggery like teabaggery it is lovely to have a spot to cast our frustration at it without having to write or hope for an essay in which to comment.

    Its great for mid-day fodder for future essays, and great way to talk about nothing if we so choose, too!

  4. I can really go off on a wandering tangent or three.

    This morning I spent a little time exploring here… theres gobs of material there. Gobs.

    The podcasts look particularly interesting, but I didnt delve very far.

    The Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University is a nationally recognized resource for analyzing real-world ethical issues and for developing tools and programs to address them. The Center supports research, assists faculty in integrating ethics into their courses, and helps businesses, schools, hospitals, local governments, and other organizations to put ethics to work.

  5. to all our political woes…if it’s Freedom Fries, a big ol’ sloppy Moose Burger, or if you need a place to set your copy of the U.S. Constitution (that damn piece of paper!)…every patriotic American needs one of these!!

    an excuse to sit down at the computer at 1 pm EST with a cup of tea and some apples and nuts. 🙂 I’m late for the thread bearing but then I was up to something in the kitchen and I don’t won’t to goo up this keyboard just yet.

     Yes, that is a big butt honey jar. Never mind the bees, the ants must be gigantic.

    At least seven people are dead and 12 wounded in a shooting at Fort Hood in Texas, the base’s public affairs office told NBC News on Thursday.

    The official would not give his name nor additional details. It was unknown whether victims are soldiers or civilians. One gunman was reportedly in custody and another was on the loose, NBC News said. A third shooter may be involved, according to NBC News affiliate KCEN, which said the person had opened fire on the SWAT team at the base.

    KCEN reported that a policeman was among those shot.
