Anyway, I want to thank some wonderful and distinguished journalists who invited me down to DC to break bread with them and swap stories. Bloggers like yours truly owe it to folks like Richard Prince, Lynne Adrine, Jeanine Hunter, Ronald Taylor, and others. Sitting among those individuals was an honor.
It was also nice meeting journalists like Marisol Bello of USA Today, and Ron Nixon of the New York Times, who are keeping the legacy going and trying to hold it down in Mr. Charley's newsroom. That is serious FNB.
Oh well, time to hit the sack, although, before I go, I want to say congratulations to the republican party for their 2012 party platform. Some of the language adopted couldn't have been easy given what's been going on lately with a certain gentleman from Missouri.
Aug. 22 (Bloomberg) -- Republican drafters of their party’s 2012 platform reaffirmed support for a constitutional amendment banning abortion that would allow no exception for terminating pregnancies caused by rape. Concluding two days of deliberations in Tampa yesterday, the platform committee completed a 60-page draft of political positions and principles that will be submitted for adoption when the Republican National Convention begins Aug. 27 in the Florida city.
Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell, the panel’s chairman, and other leaders sought to emphasize the document’s focus on proposals to promote economic growth as the party dealt with a political storm stirred by a comment about rape by the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Missouri.
The draft “reflects the views of the grassroots leaders” of the party and “affirms our belief in traditional values, but spends an enormous amount of time and energy on how to get the greatest country on Earth out of debt and back to work,” McDonnell told reporters after the Committee on Resolutions completed the platform draft."

Yes, let's save all of those babies. Just don't forget about them when they become a "nuisance" to society.
