Weather

I just found out we had a small tornado in Philadelphia yesterday. It was about eight miles from my house.

Yesterday afternoon, the weather service sent a tornado warning to my cellphone, but by the time I saw it, it was cancelled, so I didn’t think about it. See the things I miss by not watching local news?

Very useful

A list of assorted technological tips from NYTimes tech columnist David Pogue that may make your life easier.

1967

I think this is a big deal. This is the first time Obama has broken publicly with the Israeli position on the seized territories, and I hope something comes of it.

New record

It’s been two and a half months since I went to the big local supermarket. Whee!

It’s an ADD thing — it’s too big, there’s too much stuff, too much stimulation. It exhausts me. I feel as if I climbed Mt. Everest.

Since I’m eating mostly carb-free now, I get by picking up salad stuff and meat at the local butcher shop. But I finally had to go today, to stock up on all those things the local store doesn’t carry or are too expensive to order online, like deodorant and Dr. Scholl’s insoles.

Anyone else feel like this?

Hurry up and die

Politicians are very liberal in their interpretation of “Christianity”:

TRENTON — Adults in a family of three that makes as little as $103 a week would earn too much to qualify for health care provided by Medicaid under a sharply curtailed program Gov. Chris Christie wants the federal government to approve this year, according to state officials and advocates briefed on the proposal.

If approved by the Obama administration, the change would affect only new applicants and virtually everyone in the program now would continue to receive health benefits, officials said. Children would continue to be accepted.

Nonetheless, advocates said it would eliminate a future health care avenue for thousands of working poor residents.

The state estimates that about 23,000 people in the coming fiscal year would be prevented from enrolling in Medicaid and New Jersey FamilyCare, a spinoff program for working poor who make slightly more than the Medicaid limits.

The Christie administration is expected to propose cutting the maximum income level of Medicaid from $24,645 to $5,317 a year for a family of three, said Ray Castro, senior analyst for New Jersey Policy Perspective, a left-leaning think tank, who was briefed by administration officials. State officials confirmed the figure.

Excitement

My first dinner party in a very long time tonight. Thank God they’re meat eaters, and not vegans. (I’m always so baffled about what to offer them.) Steak, baked potato and salad, bitchez!

Destructive

I really hate it when Republicans block perfectly qualified judicial candidates as alleged “extremists.” Consider the source.
