I need fancy vegetarian dish ideas for my wife for Easter dinner on Saturday. Help is appreciated since the rest of us are eating steaks. I typically do a fancy vegetable pasta bake a la Giada De Laurentiis, but I’ve done it a little too much and something different is in order. Soooo….any ideas?

These assholes are still alive, and just by being alive, get off scott-free for driving someone to their death.

If you’re able to read it, this is a pretty good article on the Tea Party movement going into November. It will be super interesting to see how this pans out over the next six months. Essentially, if they want to get anywhere, they have to go more mainstream. The non-sell out party needs to sell-out. Funny how that all goes…

I ride my bike a lot. I don’t like slowing down for stop signs or battling traffic, and I also don’t wear a helmet, so I try to stick to greenways and designated bike lanes whenever I ride.

Health care reform is necessary, and House Democrats should vote for it because it’s best for the nation. They should also remember the political lessons of history. To paraphrase Mark Twain, history doesn’t repeat itself but it does rhyme. As the White House and the House Democratic leadership… why are the Democrats often called weak? this is why…
