Schiller Park - Doggy Halloween 2009

Sunday was sunny, again, so I wandered over to Schiller Park. Another doggy-centric event was occurring.








After it was all over, I heard someone tell their dog "Well Chloe, it looks like you humiliated yourself for nothing."

Chloe appeared overdressed, yet unperturbed.

LOLwarcriminals - the mustache of pammy landing



These distinguished diplomats and gentlemen have recently appeared on the op-ed pages of the Washington Post, offering their sincere advice to the Obama Administration. Said advice is contained in the alt text above.

Post Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli said he worries "that we are not well-enough informed about conservative issues. It's particularly a problem in a town so dominated by Democrats and the Democratic point of view."
As Eric Boehlert points out in the second link above, the Washington Post provided no such forum to former V.P. Al Gore. Of course, the Clinton Administration couldn't match the stunning national security and foreign policy succeses of the Bush-Cheney junta, so there you go.

UPDATE!

Marcus Brauchli will take questions online tomorrow at 12:00 PM.
I don't know if I can make it, I'm swamped at work. (If only they would leave me alone! But it's more like six.)

Marcus has even more explaining to do than we thought!

Sunny Day in German Village - part 3

Monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus):Monarchs have up to four generations each summer, each one traveling a little further north than the last. The last generation of the year migrates south.



This Monarch may have waited a bit too long to head on South for tequila and umbrella drinks, given what happened to our temperatures this week. But at least the October flowers of German Village were a treat.
