Hoot's Highlights Of 2003
Well here we are at the end of another 365 days to mark one more year gone by. Arrivederci 2003, Ciao 2004. Man where did the time go? It seems like it was just yesterday we were celebrating the new millennium and already we are four years into it. Our parents were right when we were growing up and they told us to enjoy the time cause as you get older it starts to fly by. It seems like sometimes there are just not enough hours in each day to accomplish all that we put upon ourselves. That is why it is important to take a moment here and there to reflect on what we have. I know we all get caught up in our daily routines and just keep pushing forward but if you don't remember to stop and smell the roses, or take in a sunrise or sunset or whatever your fancy, before you know it time will have passed you by. Each of us don't know how long we will be here in this world so you have to enjoy the time that we have now, here in front of us. So the next time when your schedule has you running ragged and you feel overwhelmed just stop and take in whatever is around you and be thankful for what surrounds you in your life.
Well I don't know about you but to me it seems like a lot of shit has happened in 2003. From the Iraq war, to SARS, to another Space Shuttle lost, to Elizabeth Smart being found alive, to Martha Stewart indicted, to the Big Blackout in August. Here are some recaps of the year in news: 2003 Month-by-Month, or an Overall Year in Review 2003.

I think that just about wraps it up for me. I want to thank Peter and Rich for all the work they do in keeping this website going. And I want to thank them for letting me help them out by giving them a break from doing the weekends. I know that a lot of people out there are reading this site and I am sure that alot of them, like me, look forward to reading TDC everyday. It takes a good amount of time to constantly come up with fresh stuff for everyone to peruse through each day. I know they both enjoy doing this as do I and that is why it keeps going. I have been coming here for almost a year now and I look forward to many more. To all our readers out there Thank You for coming back again and again everyday because I know that is a reason why Peter and Richie keep it up. If no one was reading it probably wouldn't be worth it to do it. So Thank You again readers you are a part of what makes the site what it is. I would like to wish everyone and their families out there in TDC land a safe and Happy New Year!!! I will see y'all next year!!! Peace!!! Hoot23

Hoot's Saturday Sorbet
Note to all: The first part of today's column is actually one I had put together for Sun Dec. 14 but it somehow never got published???? I know it talks about there being twelve days left before Christmas and today is two days after the big ol fat man came a calling but I wanted everyone to see what I had assembled for that day so here ya go...
That's right, including today there are only twelve days left until Christmas. So if you still have some shopping left to do good luck. It only gets nuttier and nuttier out there as we get closer to it. I really enjoy this time of year. With all the decorations and most everyone in a cheerful spirit it is pleasant. I know it is over commercialized and a hassle but it is nice to run into people you may have not seen for some time. We should all be thankful for what we have and enjoy it because there are a lot of people out there in this world that have nothing. Get out and savor it because each year keeps passing by faster and faster. OK then let's get moving.
I have some presents for some of our regulars in the discussion forums. If you haven't joined just click on the link over there on the right and sign yourself up.

Well I have to cut it short. I was going to hand out more presents but this was my second time writing this column. Internet explorer crashed on me b4 and I had forgot to save so I started all over got to this point and saved and had added some more when my computer locked up. And now I have to run out the door so I will say to everyone have a Merry Christmas or whatever you celebrate because I won't be around next weekend. I am off to go snowboarding at Sugarbush in Vermont. Woo hoo can't wait. Everyone be safe and I will see ya all the weekend before New Years with a end of the year wrap up. Until then I hope Santa brings everybody what they want. Merry Christmas. Peace.Hoot23
.....Alrighty then!!! Now that is out of the way let me jump right into today's tidbits. Well as you can see I went to Sugarbush last weekend and let me tell you what a great one it was. We got up there last Thur night right after they had a snowstorm that dumped two feet of fresh powder on the mountain for us to ride fresh tracks come Friday morning.
Oh what fun! Loads and loads of snow!!!
One more pic of all the powder!!!(Just for you Rich!!!)
Oh I love snowboarding so freakin much. I am able to have a clear mind that is thinking about absolutely nothing except where I am going take make my next turn in the snow! It is exhilarating. If you have ever wanted to try and snowboard or ski but you have never gotten around to it I say what the hell are you waiting for. Go for it, I think you will love it. I do!!!

Now there are plenty of different ways to celebrate Christmas but did any of y'all have yourselves a White Trash Christmas!!!
Some crazy rumors have been going around the discussions forums. Such as five minutes ago, a bus load of repellent mongrels mysteriously enlightened arse-picking Armyofone! Or the fact that up until the Gore Buddhist temple fiasco, mischievous Chrispy darkly coughed up umpteen so-called kittens. And before Newt came out of the closet, Clinton-worshiping AIM315 gratefully got excited over quite a few small gypsies. Make up other bizarre rumors about people you know!!!
Remember when everybody told you how if you folded a $20 dollar bill it formed a picture of the pentagon ablaze on one side and the twin towers on the other? Well if you don't or no one ever showed you how you can try it for yourself along with other bill folding tricks at Foldmoney.com!
Which is worse kissing Saddam or wiping Osoma Bin Laden's Ass? Which is worse being a hockey goalie with no mask or being a hockey goalie with no cup? Which is worse getting on an elevator on which someone had pushed all 26 buttons or being in a two hour traffic jam? Which is worse????
Is your head pounding from all the holiday cheer and spirits you have been consuming? Well here is some advice from the people who serve up those aches!
Now this is just fucked up. This is why I say people should have to have a license to bear children! A father drove his car into his in-laws' house in a fiery Christmas Day crash.
.....Ummmm OK???(Click on the green blob)
This is why many consider Christmas has become too commercialized!!! Another Walmart story!
Do you like extreme sports like rock climbing, mountaineering, snowboarding or the like? Do you enjoy making movies with your video camera? Well combine the two at Peter Peru's Extreme Film & Expedition School!
Ok maybe it is just too damn crowded in Japan to notice, or maybe they are too busy with all their technology, or who knows why they didn't see it but I think the smell would have alerted somebody!!!
If your Hugh Grant and you go to Bankok you better cover your kok and run!!!
Men this is for the inner woman in you. Manties!!!
And again to all, I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!!!
Well now I think that should satisfy everybody for today. I will be back tomorrow to do a little recap of the year Hoot style. Until then, see ya!!! Peace! Hoot23 and I'm out!

Twas the day after Christmas...
And it's back to work, followed by a short week, and then the New Year celebration. Then, it's over until next year. I hope you all had a nice holiday, and that you all got what you wanted.
I was going to post this video yesterday, but I thought it was a bit too "dark" for Christmas Day. Sorry, enjoy it today instead. It's fairly long, but well done.
Still no word from the Beagle 2, which landed on Mars on yesterday. It was supposed to have dived into the Martian atmosphere on Christmas Day and reached the surface about seven minutes later; its impact softened by parachutes and gas-filled bags. (No one has been having much luck lately with trips to Mars. It's becoming the Bermuda Triangle of the Solar System.)
He's going to hell: A former caregiver will serve two years in federal prison for swindling a dying priest out of a $350,000 life insurance annuity, and then gambling it away at casinos.
A man was found dead inside the wheel well of a passenger jet that arrived in New York on Christmas Eve from Jamaica.
A Tanzanian man killed himself by drinking a chemical used in cattle dips, leaving a suicide note saying it was to escape a nagging wife.

A Florida man sold men.com for $1.3 million, a healthy profit over the $15,000 he paid for it in 1997.
For Skittlebrau, here are some other Skittles + booze concoctions.
Any of you use those Internet-based telephone services? I am dying to cancel my home telephone number, because I never use it. I only use my cell phone. I have maintained an SNET phone only for the kids. But, if there's a reliable Internet-based service that any of you can recommend, I'd appreciate it.
Rich's Post Xmas Wrap Up
I hope everyone's christmas was great and you got everything you wanted .I will tell you that I will never get tired of seeing my daughter and son open up thier gifts because the look on thier faces is priceless and if you have kid's you know exactly what im talking about.
Ohh by the way , Happy Boxing Day everyone ! ...what is this boxing day we see on our calenders every year and never bother to question it ? Centuries ago, ordinary members of the merchant class gave boxes of food and fruit to tradespeople and servants the day after Christmas . These gifts were an expression of gratitude to those who worked for them, in much the same way that one now tips the paperboy an extra $20 at Christmas time or slips the building's superintendent a bottle of fine whisky. Those long-ago gifts were done up in boxes, hence the day coming to be known as "Boxing Day."
ok enough of the history lesson , lets rock ....
President George Bush may have his critics but he still has a lot of friends - if his Christmas card list is anything to go by.

Twas the day before Christmas...
and I thought all of our shopping was done, but there always seems to be those last few gifts that force you to go to the store on the very last day. So, after I do this, it's off to battle the crowds for a couple of gifts.

Did you know? Starting January 1, newly licensed teens in Connecticut will be allowed to have only one passenger sit beside them for the first three months they have a license. And the passenger can only be a parent, a licensed driving instructor or a person at least 20 years of age who has had a license for four years.
Well, enjoy this day before Christmas, and I'll give you my official Holiday greetings tomorrow morning.

Rich's Tuesday Editorials
Well I was going to post my DC Christmas list today but with all the editorials we have the column will just be too much damn reading and we dont need that ..so my xmas list will be tommorow , promise !
Ok , Editorial #1 :
This is one I actually found and thought it was interesting..
Brent Bozell thinks that cable TV is destroying our culture. I think that he is confusing cause and effect. The demise of culture in America is reflected not only in cable TV, but in all of the entertainment outlets across the board. Movies have degenerated into sex, gore, profanity, extreme violence and mind numbing visual and acoustic effects. Occasionally a new movie will have acting, plot and a minimum of substitutes for lack of same, but in general one must go back at least three decades (four is better) to find real cinema culture. Music has been in decline for most of the 20th century, with the last couple of decades being a total wasteland with the possible exception of the country music scene. Art has been reduced to absurdity, such that the only offerings fit to look at are found at the Mall art gallery.
I used to wonder why, with considerably smaller populations to draw from, creativity in classical music thrived during previous centuries but waned during the 20th century. One possible explanation is that the scientific and technological arenas provided diversion for many talented individuals that might otherwise have written great symphonies. However, the truth of this conjecture underlies the real problem. The unparalleled productivity and affluence that science and technology have wrought has, contrary to the hype coming from the socialist left, empowered lower and lower classes in the market place. Whereas a Frederick Chopin had to target the ruling class to receive sustaining compensation for his efforts, the artist, musician or entertainer of today gets rich not by producing a symphony for Bill Gates (assuming he would be willing to commission one), but by targeting the unwashed masses. Even the poor in America, those 'poverty stricken' that the politicians are constantly whining about, have considerable discretionary funds, and it is that influence in the marketplace that has diluted American culture. A million from Bill cannot be compared with the billions available by producing acid rock, rap, sex and violence packed movies for Bubba.
The wealth distribution agenda of the political left exacerbates the affluence effect. Whereas Microsoft Bill may still have more money than he can spend, the upper middle class finds that, after being fleeced by the lower class's political goon squad, they can barely afford the trash produced for the dregs. There is certainly not enough extra available to entice the market to produce much in the way of higher culture. To see this just compare the size of the classical music section at your local CD outlet to the rest of the offerings. The welfarite not only bids up the price of Porterhouse steaks with his food stamps, but with the money that would have otherwise been spent for chuck he bids down the culture of the society.
There does not seem to be an obvious solution to this problem. What does seem obvious in light of the above is that one of the more serious drawbacks of a free and prosperous society is that the tastes of the lower classes will rule the marketplace. To the extent that financial equality is achieved the society will descend to the cultural norms of the masses. Wealth redistribution and welfare biases the result even further into the gutter.

Im not sure how true this is but thought I would put it anyways ..
by Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association
Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during our spring recognition event. We received the following reply from the local TARGET management: "Veterans do not meet our area of giving. We only donate to the arts, social action groups, gay & lesbian causes, and education."
So I'm thinking, if the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and veterans in general do not meet their donation criteria, then something is really wrong at this TARGET store. We were not asking for thousands of dollars,not even hundreds, just a small sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.

Rich's Tuesday Editorials
Well here is what I think about the weather lately .....
It is Editorial day and I got a couple good ones , let me know what you think ....
Editorial #1 :
Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during election years.
In more recent years, no congressperson has felt the need to change it. After all, it is a great plan.
For all practical purposes their plan works like this:When they retire, they continue to draw the same pay until they die.Except it may increase from time to time for cost of living adjustments.
For example, former Senator Byrd and Congressman White and their wives may expect to draw $7,800,000.00 (that's Seven Million, Eight-Hundred Thousand Dollars), with their wives drawing $275,000.00 during the last years of their lives.
This is calculated on an average life span for each of those two Dignitaries. Younger Dignitaries who retire at an early age, will receive much more during the rest of their lives
Their cost for this excellent plan is $0.00. NADA....ZILCH...
This little perk they voted for themselves is free to them... You and I pick up the tab for this plan. The funds for this fine retirement plan come directly from the General Funds , "OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK"!
From our own Social Security Plan, which you and I pay (or have paid) into, -every payday until we retire (which amount is matched by our employer)-
Or, in other words, we would have to collect our average of $1,000 monthly benefits for 68 years and one (1) month to equal Senator Bill Bradley's benefits!
That change would be to jerk the Golden Fleece Retirement Plan from under the Senators and Congressmen. Put them into the Social Security plan with the rest of us .. then sit back and watch how fast they would fix it.
Hey ESPN - get your noses out of Michael Vick's ass! I had to turn off last night's game after the first half because I couldn't stand listening to Paul Maguire, Joe Theismann and Mike Patrick gush over every little thing Vick did. Sure, the guy ran for 141 yards, but he didn't complete half of his passes and threw a pick near the end of regulation. A quarterback who runs better than he can throw will never win a Super Bowl, no matter how many marketing dollars the league spends on him.
The only surprise regarding USC's BCS snub is that it took this long for the system to fail. According to the BCS, last year's Super Bowl contestants should have been Tennessee and Philly.
Bruce Smith is the NFL's all-time sack leader? Sure, if your perception of time only dates back to 1982.
What is it going to take to get Matt Millen off of my TV screen? GMs with a 9-36 record shouldn't seen or heard. Or employed, for that matter.
You gotta love the NHL. You don't? Well, I'm not much of a fan myself, although you have to give the league credit for trying. Over the past decade, Gary Bettman has insured that an NHL franchise is within an hour's driving distance from just about anywhere in North America. At last count, the league had something like 147 teams, with the top 120 qualifying for the playoffs. During the past five years alone, the NHL has spread out to such hockey hotbeds as Columbus, Atlanta and Charlotte. Don't ask me the names of the teams, because I haven't a clue, and don't care.
The league has been in the news a lot lately. Unfortunately, it's the financial news. Ottawa and Buffalo have filed for bankruptcy protection within a week of each other. While the existence of both franchises is not in immediate jeopardy, you have to figure that this kind of news is going to put Bettman on the hotseat. It's a seat Bettman better be comfortable in, because he should be sitting in it for the rest of his tenure as NHL commissioner.
The NHL has invested millions (probably billions) of dollars trying to vault higher up the ranks of pro sports' Big Four with little success. I care as much about the league now (which is very little), with a franchise playing it's home games in an arena 20 miles away from my front door, as I did 15 years ago when the only American team on the west coast featured a new acquisition by the name of Gretzky. There are many reasons for my lack of interest: the game doesn't translate well to TV, the league is dominated by players whose names I can't pronounce or remember, teams can earn points when they lose and the length of the playoff schedule are but a few. But the main reason is the NHL's rapid expansion.
30 years ago, there were 16 teams in the league. 15 years later, the number had increased to 21. Today there are 30 teams. While an increase of nine teams may not see too dramatic over 15 years, it should be noted that there were four additional teams (Minnesota, Hartford, Quebec and Winnipeg) who moved to other cities and assumed new identities. That makes 13 new teams in 15 years - nearly one team per season. It's hard for a casual fan like myself to follow a team when the league roster looks different every year. I may follow the Boston Bruins a bit, and if they are playing the Canadiens on TV, I'll probably check it out. I know the Canadiens and Bruins have a rich rivalry dating back to the days when the NHL consisted of only eight teams. But why should I give a crap when they are playing Tampa Bay or Nashville, two teams who have no identity or history to me?
Most of the expansion cities have one of two factors working against them. The first factor is that they are located in small markets. Small-market franchises feel the pinch because the NHL doesn't make as much money from national TV agreements as the other major professional leagues. The contracts these franchises sign for their local broadcast rights pale in comparision to the contracts signed by larger-market teams like New York or Los Angeles. Less revenue means less money to spend team operations and a smaller margin of error when financial goals are not met.
The idea of ice hockey in warm-weather cities baffles me. What kind of fanbase can you expect in a town where the idea of lacing up a pair of ice skates to play a sport is akin to sunbathing during an Alaskan winter? Let's take a look at San Jose, my designated local franchise. The Sharks sell out nearly every game and play in front of a rabid crowd. Great. Unfortunately, those 15,000 or so folks who pack the arena are just about the only Sharks fans in the Bay Area. During the past three seasons, I haven't watched one period of a televised Sharks game. Weeks can go by on the local sportsradio airwaves without a single hockey call. In terms of media coverage, the Sharks fall behind the Niners, Raiders, Giants, A's and even the goddamn Warriors, who haven't been to the playoffs in nearly a decade.
You see, the only people who care about hockey out here are folks who grew up playing and watching it in other cities. In nearly 35 years of living in California, I have never seen a group of kids playing a pick-up game of ice hockey. This is because we are missing a key ingredient throughout most of the state: ICE. If you want to play ice hockey around here, you better hop in a car, drive to the local rink and play in an organized league. That's why football, baseball, hoops, even soccer are more popular for kids here in the Sharks' backyard - they can play some version of each of those sports in the street or at the neighborhood park whenever they want to.
Eventually, the league will sort itself out. My guess is that the number of teams in the NHL will be reduced to a more manageable and profitable number. Until then, we'll hear of many more hardships and financial struggles. The Senators and Sabres have issued Bettman and the rest of the league a wake-up call. Let's hope they don't hit the snooze button.

Rich's Tuesday Editorials
From time to time people send me thier thoughts , some of them are quite frightening and some are well thought out . I figured I would post a couple today to give you guys a sample of what I have to read through everyday . Ok these are not what I think but what you, the readers, have sent me .....so here goes .
First Editorial :
Will we still be the Country of choice and still be America if we continue to make the changes forced on us by the people from other countries that came to live in America because it is the Country of Choice??? Think about it . . .
All I have to say is, when will they do something about MY RIGHTS? I celebrate Christmas, but because it isn't celebrated by everyone, we can no longer say Merry Christmas. Now it has to be Season's Greetings. It's not Christmas vacation, it's Winter Break. Isn't it amazing how this winter break ALWAYS occurs over the Christmas holiday? We've gone so far the other way, bent over backwards to not offend anyone, that I am now being offended. But it seems that no one has a problem with that. This says it all!
IMMIGRANTS, NOT AMERICANS, MUST ADAPT.
I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to America. Our population is almost entirely made up of descendants of immigrants.However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. This idea of America being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Americans, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle.This culture has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.
We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language! "In God We Trust" is our national motto. This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented.It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.
If Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don't like Uncle Sam,then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change,and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. This is OUR COUNTRY, our land, and our lifestyle.
A Thought Provoking Statistic
Think about this:
(US Dept. of Health &Human Services)
Then think about this:
Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets out of hand.
As a public health measure, I have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear that the shock could cause people to seek medical attention.
