How are we supposed to respect the law when...

Check out this article. Judges in the State of Washington have ruled that it is permissible for teachers to have sex with their 18 year old students.

Of course I understand. Our legislators are too damn busy deciding what we can eat, where we can smoke, how many gallons of water our toilets can use per flush, etc. to be bothered with something as unimportant as teachers sexually manipulating their impressionable young students.

Apple is amazing!!!

I just placed an order at the Apple online store on behalf of my kids. They wanted to buy their mom an iPod. As soon as the order went through, I realized that I had forgotten to ask for gift wrapping.

So I called their 800 number since I thought that would be the quickest way to amend the order. My order was placed at 8:29PM. I was on the phone talking to a rep at 8:44PM. The iPod was already engraved, packaged and waiting for UPS or Fedex to pick it up.

That is just breathtakingly awesome! Kudos to Apple!

I think the next step is for them to have packages delivered to people before they even know they're going to order it.

Some photos of a beautiful sunset

Here are three photos that I took on my way home from upstate NY just a few hours ago. Sadly, I was unable to capture what I thought were the most breathtaking scenes. There was just no place to stop my car on the side of the highway. But I saw what I saw and it will be part of me forever.

I hope you enjoy these.
