So, I was reading in the paper this weekend that there are some pretty good websites out there for us baby boomers to use to strengthen our brains. Yes, our brains apparently need exercise need exercise. (That was an unintended typo that I saw on first edit. I left it to make the point.) It turns out that mine especially does after taking some tests at mybraintrainer.com
In fact, I have been on a real downer since taking the trials. Alzheimer's at 62? Damn. Things were not all bad though. I did increase my scores after a little practice and I decided to pay a three month fee to take their full course of brain exercises. I had started doing a couple of cross word puzzles every night, but that obviously isn't enough.
On another matter, if you didn't read columnist Ned Farquhar's piece on Pete Domenici in the Albuquerque Journal this morning, you missed a pointed critique of the Senator's anachronistic energy and climate beliefs. I don't think I have ever seen someone take on Pete this way and I am happy this column was carried by the Journal.
At the same time I think my favorite editorial cartoonist, John Trever of the Journal, went over the top with his cartoon this morning showing our Governor waving a flag of surrender. I guess Trever doesn't like the Guv's get out of Iraq plan. Fourteen more American soldiers died in the last 24 hours, along with a lot of Iraqi civilians.
