CNN: When you read the script, were you at all concerned about the nature of the language?
Clint Eastwood: No, I wasn't. If you're going to learn something and progress in the movie as a character, you have to start as something else in order to learn tolerance. And your character obviously is never too old to learn that, so he has to be a certain way.
But I -- being politically incorrect -- I find [it] fascinating because I hate the so-called PC thing. I think that's one of the things that's damaging our generation at the present time. Everybody is taking themselves and everything so seriously. If they just relax a little more and take themselves and everything else a little less seriously, they'd have a lot more fun.
I could not agree more with that. People are getting way to wound up on the little things. Everything you say, do, or wear is going to bother someone. Get a life, live a little.

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl. We should've known... ONLY women would be able to drag a fat-a$$ man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.
This does not surprise me in the least.

Caylee Anthony, 2, has been missing since June in a case that has received national attention.
The announcement marks the end of a six-month search for the 2-year-old.
"It is with regret that I'm here to inform you that the skeletal remains found on December 1 are those of the missing toddler," Orange County Medical Examiner Dr. Jan Garavaglia said.
She said the cause of death was homicide, but she could not determine how Caylee was killed.
Casey Anthony, 22, faces charges including first-degree murder in the June disappearance of her daughter. Remains described as being those of a small child were found last week a half-mile from Casey Anthony's parents' home, in the area where a meter reader first directed police.
I know the mother was arrested but has yet to be convicted. The evidence hasn't been brought out yet, and everyone is presumed innocent, until proven otherwise. But when they do convict someone, I hope they have a very slow, very painful death. Whether it be by the government or other means. I don't believe in vigilante justice often, but when a child is involved, All Bets Are OFF.

Your result for Test Who You Are in the Steampunk Ether City of Salmagundi...
Arcanist-Major Edmund Ras (the Sorcerer)
37% Cerys, 74% Ras, 20% Bell, 28% Wilde, 57% LeClerc, 13% Kendrick and 8% Fuzzy!
You are Arcanist-Major Edmund Ras of the Praxian Alliance, assigned as liaison to the Legion of Peace. You are a scholar, a scientist, and a sorcerer, in a city that distrusts the first two and despises the third. Though you are kind-hearted and concerned about the betterment of others, the hostility you routinely encounter has left you jaded and sardonic. You have a sharp tongue and a very dark sense of humor, and you delight in mocking those with irrational fears and prejudices. Your outlook on life teeters between the optimistic and the resigned, and you still can’t decide if humanity is worth the trouble. Still, even if humanity is doomed to self-destruction you are willing to risk your life to give it just one more generation.

They are calling for a major snow storm starting sometime tomorrow into Tuesday, with accumulations heading towards the 8 to 10 inch mark. I just love having to be on the road at 4 a.m. after a big blow like that, because the plows usually haven't been out. It's a contest between me and Mother Nature to see who retains control of my jeep. So far I have been extremely fortunate in winning. But then I also only drive at a snail's pace. Don't want to give her any more advantages then she already has ;)
Living way out in the middle of nowhere, we might see a plow sometime on Thursday, by then most of the snow will be packed down and polished to a high glass shine. By then end of December our road should resemble Wyatt's hockey rink. Bring the skates boys, it's party time.

I am so ready for summer. The hotter the better. Not a good sign seeing as how winter hasn't even really started here yet.
(thinks warm thoughts, the kind that don't land you in jail :P )
