GO WHITE SOX GO WHITE SOX GO!

As you may remember from this post, I have really fond memories of growing up with the White Sox.  South Side!  I remember them losing more often then not when we'd go to games, though - but what a year this year was!

Anyway, congrats and all to them!  I can hardly believe it... 88 years? 

Looking around online, I found this fight song... bless me if I have any idea how it goes, but maybe some of the old-time Sox fans can help me out!

WHITE SOX WHITE SOX GO-GO WHITE SOX
LET'S GO GO-GO WHITE SOX
WE'RE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY
THEY'RE ALWAYS IN THERE FIGHTING
AND YOU DO YOUR BEST
WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE YOU OUT HERE
IN THE MIDDLE WEST
WE'RE GONNA ROOT ROOT ROOT ROOT WHITE SOX
AND CHEER YOU OUT TO VICTORY
WHEN WE'RE IN THE STANDS
WE'LL MAKE THOSE RAFTERS RING
ALL THROUGH THE SEASON
YOU WILL HEAR US SING
LET'S GO GO-GO WHITE SOX
CHICAGO'S PROUD OF YOU
WHITE SOX WHITE SOX GO-GO WHITE SOX
ROOT ROOT ROOT FOR THE WHITE SOX
WE'LL CHEER YOU OUT TO VICTORY
WHEN WE'RE IN THE STANDS
WE'LL MAKE THOSE RAFTERS RING
ALL THROUGH THE SEASON
YOU WILL HEAR US SING
LET'S GO GO-GO WHITE SOX
CHICAGO'S PROUD OF YOU
PLAY BALL!!!
WHITE SOX WHITE SOX GO-GO WHITE SOX
LET'S GO GO-GO WHITE SOX
CHICAGO IS PROUD OF YOU

WOOOOO!

(ahem... this song sounds like it's not very good.  But, anyway, WOOOOO!)

Well, that's just great.

  I posted here about a week ago regarding pharmacists in Texas refusing to fill birth control prescriptions.  Turns out it's a bigger problem than I thought.  Really makes me ill.

Just do your job, ok?

I know that we live in one of the most reactionary states in the nation.  Being in Texas, and being fairly liberal in mindset, means that we're often pretty frustrated by our local newscast.  But now, there's a bill currently in committee in our state house that is just so ridiculous, so beyond the pale that I felt it had to be a joke when I first heard it.  Then I find out that Texas is not the only state that is considering some version of the bill, and that some states have already passed it into law.

This bill would allow pharmacists who have a moral objection to filling certain perscriptions to legally refuse to dispense medications prescribed by a doctor.  Of course, it's targeted at both emergency contraception and the birth control pill, but it could have wider ramifications for antibiotics, pain medication, whatever.  I'm just so shocked and chagrined by all of this... I mean, isn't it the job of a pharmacist to fill prescriptions that a doctor prescribes to their patients?  Isn't that the job definition?

If you don't want to fulfill the parameters of your job, then get a new one.  Don't penalize people who are trying to fill legally acquired prescriptions, just because you don't believe they have a right to take their medication.  Plus, how do you know the reason people are on the pill?  There are all sorts of reasons people take hormonal birth control besides trying to avoid an unwanted pregnancy.  Assholes.

Here's a link to a more in depth article in the Dallas Morning News.  You may have to register to read it, and I don't know how long they'll keep it up; hopefully for a while.  It's mostly about a small town 30 miles east of El Paso, which has one pharmacy to fill prescriptions.  And the guy won't fill orders for birth control.  Yipes.

Anybody wanna email the Pope?

Well, as I'm sure everyone knows, we now have a pope.  Or a potato -- my Latin is kinda spotty.
But how can we, the common folk, most of us not Roman Catholic, get in on the ground floor with the new holy guy?  Want to buy an indulgence?  Maybe get an inside line on the new prayer style? Well, all you need to do is email Monsieur Papa -- here's his address!   benedictxvi@vatican.va
Go crazy!  Maybe he hasn't seen that adorable video of the penguin slapping the other penguin upside his little head!  Or the Bush/Kerry video, singing "This land is your land!"  It's your conduit, people -- use it as you see fit!    ---Girlie

BLAAA HAAA HEE (SNORT) WOOT!

HEE HEE!
Isn't this the best?  If you can't follow the link, here's a nicely relevant quotation or two from today's Witchita Falls (Texas) Times Record-News:

"Did your teen-ager look sleepy-eyed yesterday? Did he disappear around 4:20 p.m. to join his friends? Did he eat everything in the house? Or order a pizza and eat the whole thing?"

"Yesterday was 420 Day, also known as Stoner's Day. The day for "getting high" is well known by students but virtually unknown to adults, according to National Public Radio commentator David Marcus."

And et cetera.  What world are people living in that they don't know about 420? 

Anyhoo, happy late 420, to those of you who celebrate it!  And to those of you who would like to denounce it as another indication of the weakness and moral turpitude of today's youth, lighten up.

Kisses, Girlie
