Who would ever think a little tiny seedling could cause a big nervous breakdown? By "little tiny" I mean almost microscopic - a seedling that resulted from several garlic-chive seeds I planted in early February. In the spring of 2008 I spent - at commercial greenhouses - more than $300 for my garden plots. This year, I decided to plant seeds, on the advice of a sister who, last year, saved beaucoup bucks by starting, early, with the seed thing. In late January I began ordering, via e-mail, seeds and seed-planter domes from a greenhouse in South Carolina.
Many people these days who have been laid off or who cannot find a job must feel as if they've been kicked off the edge of the earth. As bad as things may be (and they are indeed bad), people should never succumb to hopelessness or despair. That's because negative feelings and "wallowing" robs much-needed energy. Many years ago, in the summer of 1981, I was homeless and living in my tent in a park along the Mississippi River in St. Cloud. There were other homeless people there, including a single mother with young children. The year before, I had studied in London and spent all my money.

We the people should rise up in a new revolution and snatch back the millions of dollars the A.I.G. crooks have stolen from us, the taxpayers. A.I.G. stands for American International Group. If you ask me, it should stand for "Arrogant Idiotic Greed." A.I.G., an international insurance company, snatched with its customary greed a taxpayer bail-out of $170 billion and then proceeded to pay its worthless executive skunks millions of dollars in so-called bonuses. We have been told repeatedly if A.I.G. fails (it already has, let's face it), the world's economic system will collapse, too.
The following is a collection of stories and other items that were included in Alexandria newspapers over the years. 100 YEARS AGO March 1909 Plans for the new hospital were made public.

If anybody doesn't deserve an apology, it's radio gas-bag Rush Limbaugh. What a spectacle it was to see Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele grovel with a cringing apology to the schlock-meister, just a day after Steele criticized the clown. No grace under pressure there. Just a cave-in play by Steele, who had been bullied into submission by Limbaugh and his neo-con minions. Limbaugh, like his hard-core conservative followers, is enraged that a Democrat won the White House, especially a Democrat with "liberal" or "radical" views.
I ran out of things to say in the brief so I’m just gonna talk about whatever comes to mind here. Hmm… Not sure if you know this but the system requires copy and pasting of all articles. Yeah it’s a pain but the real pain isn’t the copy and paste. It’s the formatting .
