V


New series starts Tuesday... I loved the movie (mini-series actually) and hated the series that came after.

This series is about the movie, so it should be better... with a recruiter like that, it would be hard not to be taken in :)

Lies, Damned Lies; Statistics

The Obama administration on Thursday slammed a report from The Associated Press alleging the government had overstated by thousands the number of jobs it has created or saved with federal contracts under President Obama's $787 billion recovery program.

The White House seized on an initial report from a government oversight board weeks ago that claimed federal contracts awarded to businesses under the recovery plan already had helped pay for more than 30,000 jobs. The administration said the number was evidence that the stimulus program had exceeded early expectations toward reaching the president's promise of creating or saving 3.5 million jobs by the end of next year.

But the 30,000 figure is overstated by thousands -- at the very least by nearly 5,000, or one in six, based on AP's limited review of some of the contracts -- because some federal agencies and recipients of the money provided incorrect job counts. The
review found some counts were more than 10 times as high as the actual number of jobs; some jobs were credited to stimulus spending when, in fact, none were produced.[link]
And these people want to run healthcare?

Bowling

Me and pops dropped to 2nd place in the bowling league, but we won them all last night and probably will be back in a tie for the lead.

Next week we bowl the guys that are currently in first (or tied with us) so we can get some separation [or lose some heh].

We've finally started bowling better, so maybe we've turned it around.

Weekend Sports Update


High School:

Austin lost a battle 31-24 to Buckhorn that sadly means no playoffs this year (no link)

College:

Tennessee outplayed Alabama, but lost on a blocked kick as time expired (my post)

Pro:

Dallas looked good and dismantled a previously 1 loss Falcon team that has playoff aspirations (37-21)

Mixed bag weekend; 2 losses and 1 win (won in fantasy league also, but meh) so not good, but all teams played hard and had a chance to win...

Humor

I rear-ended a car this morning.
So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car.

You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed and little things just seem funny?

Yeah, well I couldn’t believe it…. he was a DWARF!!!

He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted, ‘I AM NOT HAPPY!!!’

So, I looked down at him and said, ‘Well, then which one are you?’

And then the fight started…..

Football Update


Tennessee outplayed the #2 team in the country (Alabama, #1 in the AP) but it was still short (thanks to Ala blocking 2 field goals and the kicker missing another).

12-10 Ala and a great game. If Alabama doesn't fix their qb, LSU will own em heh
