Great American Smokeout 2008

So today is the Great American Smokeout. Great. Only nobody thought to tell me until I heard it on the radio this morning, and I’d already blown it before then. Oh well, maybe next year, right?

Seriously, the whole smoking thing… I know I need to quit, everyone knows they need to quit.. it’s just such a pain in the ass… ~sigh~

Tom Daschle to head Health and Human Services?

So the story is that Tom Daschle, former Senator from South Dakota, is being tapped to head up the department of health and human services. Not sure how I feel about this one myself, although on the one hand, I have to admit, he can’t be *that* bad of a choice, I don’t recall any major scandals that involved him from recent memory.

Trying something different around these parts…

Over the next few days I’m going to try something a little different for LTB, and see how I like it. I’m going to try and *actually update regularly*. I know, I know, no way you say! No, it’s true. Each day I’m going to try and grab atleast a few little things worty of updating about. Not sure how it’s going to work just yet, but we’re going to try it and see. ~shrug~
