Man, i hate John Kerry. I wish John McCain was running. I wish Ditka didn't decide not to run for senate. Man, Ditka for president. Ditka. Mike Ditka. Wow. President Ditka. Has a nice ring to it. I read something a while back during the football season. I think it was a poll about who would win the Superbowl. They had the usual teams and one of the options was "Other" A good majority of the votes were for others and the comments all said "Ditka." I don't know, just saw that as being funny.
FUck you all.

Has anyone seen that new Hate Crime commercial? I wan't to meet the guy who made it.
Enough rambling. None of you people probably read this anymore. I hope a family member close to you dies soon of cancer.
