Earth Hour?

So Al,
How'd earth hour go? Also did it have an effect? Was anyone measuring this? Will we see a ripple of reduce carbon emissions or something like that? Shadow and I tried to go for a walk for the hour but it was cold so we only made it 15 minutes. Then we went back inside and I read by candle light and Shadow hid from the candle. My complex did not participate as far as I can tell. Was earth hour just a silly bunch of hype? Tell me.

fingers crossed

Dear Al Gore,

I know you care about the environment. But you obviously must not care enough about the enviroment, because if you did, if you cared just a little bit, you would thwap some heads over at B & S and tell them to send me an invite. Now why don't you show your love for the earth and go to Cali and do that right now? I won't tell that it wasn't your idea.

Thanks a bunch!

It's a Latin Conspiracy!

Dear Al Gore,

Did you know that your name is latin for coldness? Is that a coincidence (or as my grandfather would say, a coinkidinkle), or did you change your name when you first realized that the climate was changing? It's quite handy for the nobel prize winner, for a powerpoint thinly disguised as a documentary no less, to have a name related to the weather. Storm Field and Dallas Raines were already taken and were perhaps a bit too obvious, so I bet your Harvard nerdiness broke through that calm demeanor and suggested that you take a name that would make other nerds who took latin in high school proud. If that is the case, bravo. Very subtle, very smart.

Cara (latin for dear, spanish for face; which do you think i prefer?)
