Forgot to mention, some idiot is shooting at cars on the freeway in Tacoma. Hit two so far, one several times.

Still foggy in Tacoma, but the temperature has been slowly coming up. Yesterday it was 37 here in Tacoma, but 62 at Paradise Lodge on Mt. Rainier, over 6000 feet up the mountain.

Might finally lose the fog tomorrow, and the temp is supposed to be near 50 for a day. Which means the rains are coming back after a 12 day dry spell.

Got some skinny on that ABQ shooting .  Seems that a 15 year old boy killed both of his parents ,  and all 3 of his brothers and sisters .   SEVERAL different guns used,  according to the radidio .   Gonna have to ban ALL of them .

The question is :  was this boy on medication of any kind ?  

You guys remember the Tucson shooting , in which Congress PERSON  Gabby Giffords was shot ?   The Tea Party shooter , who soon became a registered Democrat ,  was as crazy as a LOON .   His Shrink KNEW it !   He was so CRAZY that he was FORCED to take Medication just to get him calm enough to stand trial !    It's the Crazies that are doing the killing , not the tools .

anyone watch the Barrett-Jackson Auction last night  the origional Batmobile sold for over $4 million   and Jay Leno tried to help auction off George Bush's pickup for a Veteran's charity to build a home for veteran's or their families who need it and they cost $6 million each (most charity cars were going from $300,000 to $500,000  but the jerks in the audience only bid up to $200,000 and that was Rick Hendricks. So there's where we still stand ( lower than whale crap  in their eyes)
