Crazy Halloween

Happy Halloween - In the vein of Holiday Craziness, do not miss Christopher Walken, replete with echo
effects, screaming wind and accompanied by eerie guitar, reciting The
Raven. Still another gift of Coverville, the best podcast I know

And straight from the U. Alaska-Anchorage catalog:

Distance learning, from New Hampshire (really!)
- enrolled students must have access to broadband internet, spreadsheet and database software, extreme cold and lotsa Crazy.

Crazy Takes The Floor

Ted Stevens. Went. Nuts.

And that's his own press release.

Some of the better lines he let fly on the floor of the Senate: he
said he would quit the Senate if the Coburn amendment passed, saying "I
don't threaten people, I promise people."

I do enjoy the comparison between the Bridge To Nowhere and the Golden
Gate Bridge.

Crazy Pets

Animals gone Crazy.

among the highlights: the state rep referenced in the top of the story
is my local rep. muldoon, the stated neighborhood, is my nieghborhood.

and as good as the story is, go through all 10 of the pictures - don't
miss the one with the gator at the top of the stairs and the nervous
cat at the bottom.

i said 'gator'.

Weekend's Craziest Headlines

#1: "A crazy conquest for USC"

That was the real headline on Yahoo! sports all weekend. Couldn't
have picked a better word. (Here's what I thought)

#2: Meanwhile, back in CrazyLand: "Inmate flees after father's

it's not for all the marbles from the one-inch line in hip-high grass.
Just another weekend in Crazy.

Crazy International. Part II.

Here's a great story that covers several drums I like to bang here on
the Crazy list.

This story provides both the context and details of the absurdity of
the "The Bridge to Nowhere" in Southeast at Ketchikan. $223 Million of
federal money for a bridge connecting an isolated town with a
population of a few thousand, and a completely empty island.
Now you will be able to take flights be able to get on the Crazy
FishPlane at Ted Stevens International, land at Don Young International
and take the Bridge to Nowhere - all of it courtesy of the American
I can't wait.

Crazy B4UDIE

I've lobbying for people to come take advantage of my guest bedroom for over 2 years now. I've tried to be nice about it, friendly even.

Not so much the AK tourism board. They just let you know the clock's tickin.

thanks to Danny and LB for pointing me towards it.


ps - Extra-super credit to anybody in Seattle, LA or Minneapolis who sends me a picture of one.

Crazy FishPlane Taking Fire!!!

Oh, fish plane... will you ever learn?

and I'm one wise-ass remark away from putting John McCain on the
Rabbi's Enemies List.

He may love Freedom, but McCain clearly hates Crazy, which in my book
is the same thing.

Crazy FishPlane

And it only cost you $500,000.

The airline got a federal grant - courtesy of the Alaska Congressional Delegation - for the paint job.

That's a King Salmon, by the way. A Chinook, they call it, the biggest of the breeds. You can tell it's a Chinook by the specks on top, the the black tail and it's the size of a 737.
