Check the facts... i guess

Is anyone else sick of typos on news websites? I emailed Mike Igoe a few weeks ago (I wish I saved the email and had taken a screen shot of the error) about his articles that are posted on There is always some type of error and lately they have been really bad. I.e. the caption says one thing, and you open the link and it says something very different. {sorry for not being able to site an exact example}

I would like to post this from that has been up since at least 4pm yesterday. Yahoo! News had it listed incorrectly as well.



CNN can't get the guys age correct? C'mon. this is bogus. Yahoo! had it listed as 92 years old on their homepage an in the story they had it listed as 80something.

back in time

I wish I could go back in time, just a little bit. I was cleaning out a box that had old zip disks in it and I came across all of these pictures from my freshman and sophomore years in college.

haha everyone looks so young and happy.

dave's christmas freak show

I'm so glad I only have to venture to Dave's christmas store once a year. It's one part of cheektowaga I can do without.

Jeff's little fake tree bit it this year, so he needed to get a new one. I can't believe how expensive little trees were at dave's. We got one at wegmans that was pretty big and pre-lit, which would have been great if it had been white lights. The retard at wegmans gave jeff one with colored lights, so we had to pull them all off and redo it with white and blue ones. it looks pretty cool now that its done.

it just looks nasty from the outside too

what's with the foil ceiling. That tree must have taken a couple of days to decorate. Luckily I don't care that much about decorating, so haha! no tree for me!


while jeff put the tree together, i pulled every light off the branches that was colored. they must treat the trees with something because my hands itched so bad when I was done


Anyway its christmas eve now, i'm glad its almost over. peace out

I nap on my floor. I sleep in a bed. My favorite place to sleep is the floor, in high school I couldn't stand my mattress so I would pull the sheets of my bed each night and sleep on the floor.

I've spent many a night sleeping on the floor in the DMA lab in Lyons hall at Canisius and I used to take naps under my desk in the yearbook office. I really like the floor, esp. carpeted floors.image

Scratch the shell of any cynic

and you'll find a frustrated idealist. {I can't find the author of this quote, sorry}

Have you ever stopped and looked at your life and wondered, what the hell am I doing? It's as though you life somehow overran you and you're just along for the ride.

I remember sitting in the yearbook office one night, wondering what the point of my college experience was. I don't feel particularly enlightened by what I was taught, I wouldn't say any of my professors were particularly profound and only three really pushed the class to think on their own and express what they felt. I wish I would have been taught to take risks, to think on my own and stand by my convictions. I wish my input was intellectually challenged instead of unanimously ignored by my classmates, with barely a nod from the professor.

I hope I always remember the Pauls that I come across: the free thinking, idealists who have the drive and independence to figure out what they want and how to get it, because they always seem to get the short end of the stick. I don't see a change in American culture coming anytime soon, shifting from acceptance of the status quo to respect and embracement of the free-thinker.

Response to Uncutani

I know you and Leetee probably love the zoo more than I do. It used to be one of my favorite places to go when I was little.

I have nothing against the Zoo as an organization. I feel they have cleaned themselves up over the years and become more aware and responsive to economical and sociological changes which is intrical to their continued success.

My frustration and subsequent rant lies in my personal belief that good leaders do not run when the going gets tough. Fernandez, while having done a great job before the funding crisis (which is not her fault), made a decision to save herself first and leave the zoo to just hang... What kind of dedicated, responsible, devoted leader does that?

Ani... I think Buffalo has one of the greatest concentrations of arts and culture in this region, but I cannot bring myself to support a leader who leaves at the first sign of danger, who puts herself first after publically announcing her devotion and dedication to the organization she was chosen to lead and lauded for her previous success and present momentum.

Can we afford to have her leave again when there is a threat of financial or other danger?
