Hard Headed Earnhardt, Sr.

This says it all for me.
"When I stopped, I looked at it and got in the ambulance and looked back over there and I said 'man, the wheels ain't knocked off that car yet,'" Earnhardt said.

"I went back over there and looked at the wheels and I told the guy in the car to fire it up. "It fired up and I said, 'Get out. Unhook me, I've got to go."

"We took off after 'em. You've got to get all the laps you can. That's what we're running for the championship for."

The other Earnhardt, Sr.
From the grandstands, he was beheld as superhuman. And somehow when the fans came close to him, to talk or touch him, they never could quite humanize him. They were skittish. They would grasp their autographs gratefully and hurry away, careful to keep their distance once more.

But if you knew him, really knew the complicated, enormously gruff but deeply compassionate man (oh, how he hated it when his big heart showed in public), risen from the textile mill town of Kannapolis, N.C., with a ninth-grade education . . . if you really knew him, then Ralph Dale Earnhardt was so very, very human, so deeply of the commonfolk who loved him.
Love him or hate him, Ralph Dale Earnhardt paid you back for your time and money everytime he raced.

Elm Farm Ollie - First Cow To Fly And To Self Serve Inflight Beverage

Elm Farm Ollie (known as "Nellie Jay" and post-flight as "Sky Queen") was the first cow to fly in an airplane, doing so on 18 February 1930, as part of the International Air Exposition in St. Louis, Missouri, United States. On the same trip, which covered 72 miles from Bismarck, Missouri, to St. Louis, she also became the first cow milked in flight. This was done ostensibly to allow scientists to observe midair effects on animals, as well as for publicity purposes. A St. Louis newspaper trumpeted her mission as being "to blaze a trail for the transportation of livestock by air."

Obama Establishes Bipartisan National Commission

Today, President Obama will sign an executive order establishing the bipartisan National Commission on Reproductive Responsibility and Reform and announce that Nadya Denise Doud-Suleman Gutierrez (born Natalie Denise Suleman, July 11, 1975) known as Octomom will serve as the Commission's chair.

In other news, President Obama also will establish the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform and announce that former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles and former Republican Senate Whip Alan Simpson will serve as the Commission’s co-chairs.

"Of course, there are screwballs, lightweights and boobs in Congress. There are idiots in all walks of life, and we wouldn't want those people to not be represented!" Retired U.S. Senator Alan Simpson

Yvo de Boer Calls It Quits Over Global Warming Scams

U.N. climate chief Yvo de Boer to quit in July

CV History

Born in Vienna, Yvo de Boer is married and has 3 children. As the son of a Dutch diplomat, he travelled the world extensively before entering boarding school in the United Kingdom and obtaining a technical degree in social work in the Netherlands.

Deputy Director-General for Environmental Protection
United Nations Centre for Human Settlements (UN-HABITAT)
World Business Council on Sustainable Development
Netherlands' negotiator on global warming
Worked on Dutch prison policy and housing
Member China Council for International Cooperation on Environment and Development
Bureau of the Environment Policy Committee of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development
Advisory Group of the Community Development Carbon Fund of the World Bank
Board of Directors of the Centre for Clean Air Policy
Helped prepare the position of the EU - Kyoto Protocol
Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC

So, Yvo is quitting. How can one quit when one has never really had a job?

More newsworthy is that the Washington Post never once mentioned in the above article about Yvo the apparent scam called global warming that is growing daily with more and more scientists admitting to their false statements, others admitting they're too disorganized to find their proof and even more going on extended holiday far from those asking questions.

To the Washington Post Yvo has just found a "ripe time" to go into the private sector with nonconsensous as the backdrop to his four years of failure. The private sector should run like hell.
