The clock is ticking,
I shouldn't be wasting time
Writing a haiku.

Sadly, there is little time for frivolities and typing today. A small bit of work has popped up and threatened to usurp my schedule. Now I am faced with the impossible task of writing a blog and surfing the internet in less than thirty minutes. If there's anything I hate, it would be a time restriction on webternet surfing. It's like telling a group of children that they can only play "Dress-Up Costume Time" with burlap sacks. That's just not how it's meant to be done.

Anywho, here are a couple of items of note:
1) For a while last night, the BNW Skirt Turtles were 2-0 for the season. Unfortunately, that was during the second inning of last night's game. We are currently 1-1 with a number of pulled muscles and bruised shins. We had a good hustle on the field. I think next week will be a little more exciting and winning.
2) The PA primaries are today. For the past month plus, we've been told that today will be the deciding factor in choosing the Democratic party's official candidate. I think that today's primary will actually do nothing to decide the candidate, and the battle between Clinton and Obama will continue on for the next few months. In fact, today's primary might signal the start of a nation-wide dismissal of the election process, since this whole thing has been stuffed down our throats by the media for a too long now. Then again, maybe that's just me...
I am excited to see the results of the primary. My guess is that Clinton will win by a small margin and both parties will see that as a victory. And then Indiana will finally get its day in the sun. Is that really what we want, America?

I should be off. Before I depart, here's Today's Joke:
Pa. voters weigh in on hard-edged Democratic contest
A six-week, increasingly hard-edged Pennsylvania primary contest between Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama culminated Tuesday as voters registered their choice — a decision that could save or sink Clinton's flagging candidacy.
The candidates questioned each other's character and readiness to be commander in chief in last-minute television ads and barnstormed the state in a final pitch for votes in the most populous and delegate-rich state remaining in the nominating contest. Some 4 million Democrats were eligible to cast ballots, with 158 delegates at stake.
Meanwhile, Americans outside of Pennsylvania promised to sit inside their homes all day and try to not cause any news whatsoever. Any citizen that is caught distracting news stations from the PA primaries will be forced to sit in a room with Clinton and Obama and listen to the two candidates bitch at each other for three hours.



Psst! This Friday at 11 pm at the BNW, Ferrari McSpeedy competes against Rumblespeed at Punch Out! You probably don't want to miss it.
