Valentine's Day Roundup

I don't know about you, but I'm thinking that it might be nice to ban Michael Bloomberg, whose latest goal is to ban styrofoam.  

Activists are complaining that Dreamworks is producing its next sequel in the Kung Fu Panda series in China, noting that producing the film here could "create jobs".   Well, yes, you could reduce the profits that would fund the next Dreamworks film by doing so, I guess, but that doesn't guarantee jobs for Americans, to put it mildly.  The obvious questions for me, though, are whether you could get better kung fu artists and settings in China (almost guaranteed), and why on earth would a concept like "Kung Fu Panda" be good for three movies?

Want to go on a cruise?  Take a look at the latest from King David's Cruise Line.  Four days of baloney sandwiches on a filth-strewn, darkened, airless ship because there was no redundancy in propulsion or power generation. 
Dr. Keith Ablow states my opion of Dr. Ben Carson's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast just about perfectly. 

Skin-to-skin contact between a mother and her child is said to reduce postpartum depression.   You mean like "breastfeeding"?  That maybe, just maybe, we shouldn't be subsidizing daycare?

And finally, a bit of hilarity; Rep. Shiela Jackson-Lee (D-TX) is arguing that no cuts in government should be made because government has already been cut to the bone.  Yeah, "cut to the bone" is what I think when I think of all those marble buildings in DC and 3000 calorie "lunches" for the inauguration.

hey... for a minute there you had me thinking KD was blogging again... damn you...

as for breast feeding: i've always believed that the best way to do things were the ways that more closely matched the default settings. comes as no shock to me that post-partum depression might be reduced by doing the natural thing.

Gino; trying to help KD out in his time of difficulty. And exactly, and it's a beautiful, beautiful thing.
