Taken on Saturday morning on the way to work.

The mountains and the desert. Buck should be familiar with a couple of these shots!

Roeder Guilty in Wichita

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/29/2010

Dennis Roeder, on trial for the murder of Dr. George Tiller last year in the Doctor’s church was found guilty by a jury this morning. It took them 37 minutes. The evidence against Roeder was substantial to say the least. And he did not shy from stating his position that he believed that he was saving the unborn. The minimum in Kansas for 1st degree murder is life with a¬†possibility¬†of parole at 25 years. The DA, Nola Foulston is seeking the Hard 50. This would positively ensure that Roeder would never see the outside world again as he is 51. Seeking the Death Penalty would have started Roeder on the path to martyrdom by the extreme members of the pro-life movement. And would have become a media frenzy.

Regardless of one’s position on abortion, the murder of Dr. Tiller was a premeditated assassination. I am a “pro-life” individual in that I do not believe in it’s use as a means of birth control. There are ways out there that work just fine for birth control. As for medical reasons, I cannot say one way or another. I am not a doctor.

Rotten Day

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/29/2010

Woke up. Did the teeth brushing, hair combing, got dressed thing. Doing OK.

Started on a cup of coffee. The next thing that happened was in the bathroom at a high rate of speed. Both ends at a high rate of speed. UGH! Now it’s headaches, fever and Pepto Bismol!

Called in Sick. The first one since I started.

Help Nurse Snigs!

Men and Leather

Posted by retiredpo1 on 01/24/2010

Did you know this about Leather Dresses?

Did you know that when a woman wears a leather dress, a man’s heartbeat quickens, his throat gets dry, he gets weak in the knees and he begins to think irrationally.

Ever wonder why?

It’s because she smells like a new truck!

From my friend Miss Mary.
