da Vinci Code

I plan on seeing the da Vinci Code, how about you? I cannot believe there are people so insecure about their religion that they must boycott a story. Fiction. That's all it is. Who really gives a crap whether there is any truth in there. Is it a good story? I thought the book was good even though there are those who think it was poorly written. No Pulitzer, but it was a good story. S---T----O----R----Y.

Maybe I will go this weekend after work. It's either that or that over publicized Flight 93 movie. I hope I just offended someone just now.

Truth is, I don't think I am ready to see or be reminded of that dreaded day. I still have pangs of anger at this whole crazy world we live in.

Cell phones that do everything

How many out there really want a phone that does everything: play music, watch TV, record conversations, keeps contacts, is a walkie-talkie, takes pictures, shoots movies...? You get the picture.

Do you want your phone to do everything or do you just want to make calls to your little friends?

My phone for work is an electronic leash. At the same time it gives me the flexibility to not have to be in the office all day. I have a Treo 650. Nice phone. Bulky, though. It syncs with everything and then some. With the right apps I can keep current documents as I go or even VPN into the network (though I have not done that as of yet). Do I really need it? No. Do I want it? No. But then again, on the geek side, the answer is yes. Too bad it isn't a bit easier to carry. Maybe someone will come up with a shoulder holster or something better than a belt clip that makes it look like you have a tumor under your shirt.

What features do you like and dislike on your phones?

Immigrant Rights??????

Someone please help me understand this. What does the term "immigrant rights" mean? If you are an immigrant in the US legally, then you have rights. If you are an immigrant in the US illegally, then you are a criminal, thus no rights.

Is it that difficult to follow laws? I guess not if you come from a country that does not have laws.

Please explain to me what this all means?

Exams, No Exams

What do you think of the Exit Exam debacle in CA?

Should students who do not pass the exam be allowed to graduate?

Interesting subject.
