a-bomb

When I was 11 my dad took me to Japan with him. We spent three days in Hiroshima while he gave a talk at a conference. Our hotel was across the bridge from the peace park, the location where the bomb landed. Inside it was solemn and dead quiet. There weren't any people talking, there were no birds chirping. It was completely silent.

When you walked around the muesem, they had display after display after display of how horrid the atomic bomb was. There was a set of concrete stairs with just an outline of where the person was sitting. Their body had been evaporated by the blast. There were pictures of people trying to walk down the streets with their skin just falling off the them.

Further into the park, there were thousands of paper crane's in the grass. I guess the school kids made them every year to remember the people that had died.

The United States use of the Atomic bomb was a mistake. Future use of nuclear warheads will do nothing except probably seal our fate. It would take what, five ICBM's to completly knock out most of the country, if not make it entirely uninhabitable?

ugh.

Poof!

I took the day off from work today. Wow! I so much stuff done it was incredible. No lines anywhere, just mostly middle aged women and kids all over the place.

After two hours of one-on-one training I am pretty sure my dog will now go to the end of the driveway and pick up the papers in the morning and bring them back to the door, provided the treat is already in my hand. I know he had it after the first try, the rest were just for the food. haha

Masiello

When are people going to start telling Masiello to just shut up. I am so tired of reading articles about the city that cite Masiello saying the same thing every time: "::insert proposal:: is going to revitalize the city. Today is a good day for Buffalo. ::people from inserted proposal:: are going to revitilitalize the downtown area bringing in ::insert ridiculous number:: of tourists. We ::people from inserted proposal:: want to that mayor Masiello and the good people of Erie county and the City of Buffalo for their support and recognition of this great project ::as they accept a retarded amount of cash we cannot afford to give them::."

I'm still really skeptical of the entire Bass Pro deal. Remember when Adelphia was going to revitalize the downtown area? Remember when is all we can say. Masiello is for every proposal and when it fizzels out, he's standing on the corner yelling "I told you so". C'mon. Bass Pro is building a larger "campus" in Pittsburgh, with a fraction of the public funds they got from Buffalo.

Buffalo News Article today--Jill Beck, a downtown resident and former president of the group Working for Downtown, was skeptical of the Bass Pro project until recently. The thought of an outdoor store attracting up to 5 million visitors a year seemed outlandish. But her skepticism turned to excitement after she joined a delegation on a trip last spring to the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World store in a Toronto suburb.

"I got back on the bus and said, "Oh my God, they're not crazy after all.' "

Buffalo is not Toronto. They've already developed their waterfront and it has been able to sustain itself for a number of years.

I want to know where the plan is to develop our waterfront? We cannot just put a retail store in the Aud and then have people schlep through deserted streets and underpasses to what? that loading dock between the grain elevators and the storage space for the ice boom?

What ever became of public ridicule of terrible public officials? Tar and feather anyone?

UNIX

Anyone know of where I can learn UNIX or a good book to start with? I am familiar with the basic rudimentary commands and can get as fancy as tar and untar files to be emailed, but my skills stop there. Is it possible to publish on (e:strip) via a terminal window?

Buoys?

Does anyone know what keeps buoys in one spot? I'd particularly like to know about the ones in Lake Ontario, but now that I've thought about it, what keeps the ones in the ocean from floating off as well? really long ropes?

hummmmmmmm.
