The view from the emergency room

I spent four hours today in the Grossmont Hospital emergency room, and I'm happy to say that the medical system in La Mesa, Calif., appears to work reasonably well. I was injured playing football with some fellow Union-Tribune employees. I thought I may have dislocated or broken my wrist, but, thankfully, the X-rays revealed only […]

Seeing how this is a pretty good day to do it

In the spirit of Christmas cheer inspired by my father, I have created my own wish list for this holiday season. When my father taught U.S. Hoystory at Santana High School, during the month of December he would write what he wanted for Christmas on the board -- encouraging his students to express their generosity. […]

San Diego-area residents

A friend of mine, Sean Papiro, has leukemia. He's been through several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation in an attempt to treat it, and the treatments have been mostly unsuccessful. What he needs now is a bone-marrow transplant. Unfortunately, unlike blood-type matches, bone marrow is much more difficult to match. So, this Sunday, November 10 […]

I voted -- have you?

Well, I've successfully cast my largely-meaningless, mostly-Republican ballot in this mostly-Democratic state. There were no real lines to report. No jack-booted thugs at the polls intimidating me. And no one who seemed to have any real problems. The woman in front of me in line was not on the registrar's list. The solution: she was […]

A good omen on the horizon

I've been searching for a condo here in San Diego and there isn't much out there for someone who works at a newspaper. A second income would certainly help, but I have yet to find a woman willing to tie the knot. Today's New York Times has an article on the affordable-housing crisis in the […]

More blogging later tonight

I've spent much of the day condo-hunting, because houses are much too expensive for anyone who works at a newspaper. Got my eye on a couple, but my first choice is a fixer-upper. In the meantime, the Indepundit (a fellow San Diegan) has come out with his first non-endorsement endorsement for the Nov. 5 election.

Welcome to Hoystory

That's where you're at. Unfortunately the site that hosts the graphics for this site is currently kaput. Nothing I can do about it, except hope they come back sometime soon. *UPDATE* Graphics are back!

A posting lull

If you're a regular you will have realized that I didn't post nearly as much as normal this past week. Sorry, but I spent the week covering for a guy who went on vacation. His job is much more time consuming and stressful than my normal job usually is. That said, The Heritage Foundation's Alfredo […]

Back to blogging

I got back from my weekend trip early this evening and spent the time catching up on football games I missed over the weekend. The SDSU Aztecs lost (no surprise) and the Chargers knocked the Cincinati Bengals around like a paper tiger. Here's where I spent my weekend: I'm also catching up on my news-watching. […]

I'll take a look at dude's new book, but this tweet isn't promising. Watts is a self-aggrandizing extremist whose easily debunked smears have done a lot of damage to her own cause. Also, within pro-gun-control circles everyone knows she's toxic, & Busse surely knows this.

Ryan Busse@ryandbusse

It’s time for reasonable gun owners to cry bullshit on those who demonize good people like @shannonrwatts who are just fighting to make the world better. As Shannon says…it’s also time to buy this book.
