WyBlog, the best thing about New Jersey since the invention of the 24 hour diner.
The nine most terrifying words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." - Ronald Reagan

Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

I had a math teacher in high school who swore fluoridated water was a Communist plot. If Mr. Nagle was still with us he'd be laughing at the NJ legislature's latest attempt to improve our dental health.
A bill working its way through the New Jersey Legislature would require adding fluoride to the state's water supplies.
The state Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee last month approved a measure requiring water companies across New Jersey to add the element.
Proponents say the New Jersey Public Water Supply Fluoridation Act -- A1811 in the Assembly and S959 in the Senate -- would help combat tooth decay.
Because nothing else important is on Trenton's radar?
Speaking of Communist plots, in Kansas Obama's Zampolits run the state medical licensing board.
A Kansas doctor was denied a license to practice due to his political beliefs. Terrence Lee Lakin questioned Obama's birth certificate so Kansas denied him a license to practice medicine.
His medical credentials are impeccable, but they didn't come up during his appearance before the licensing board.
The board repeatedly refused comment on their decision, but a transcript of Lakin's shows board members didn't concern themselves with Lakin's 18-year spotless medical record.
"They hammered me for my political views," said Lakin.
Just wait until an Obamacare functionary gets to decide who will be denied treatment due to improper political views. You know it's coming.
Buried somewhere in Obamacare is probably a mandate for fluoridated water too.
Today is the bicentenary of the birth of Charles Dickens. A man for our time, if only he'd lived to see it.
In my last post I wrote, "Obama is the new Nixon." You know what just hit me though? No one under 40 probably knows who Nixon was. I think the schools replaced him with Cesar Chavez, or Harvey Milk.
(And yes, because her Catholic school uses textbooks "borrowed" from the public school system, Sophie already knows more about those two nobodies than she does about any previous U.S. president, with the possible exception of George Washington. And thanks to me, Ronald Reagan. Sigh.)
While we're talking about notable historical figures, the last known World War I veteran died yesterday, two weeks shy of her 111th birthday. Florence Green (nee Patterson) joined the Women's Royal Air Force in September 1918 at the age of 17 and worked as a waitress in the officers' mess at RAF Marham in eastern England until the war ended two months later.
The RAF gave Mrs. Green a cake for birthday number 109, and she recalled her time during the war with affection.
By rights, the Queen should attend her funeral, with full military honors.
