how do you prepare turkey?

man, I don't know how to cook a turkey at all. I know that a fried turkey tastes great, but sounds impossibly dangerous/complicated/wasteful to pull off. oven-roasted? how do you you keep it moist? this is the classic look:

how about some wild variations?

this looks marvelous:

cajun turkey?

buffalo-wing turkey? turkey pizza? salmon-wrapped turkey? how do you cook up your specialty, and what is the craziest variation you have ever had? lookit lookit.....bacon-turkey!


Mangino vs. Perkins speculation

wow, what a bunch of speculation.

There has been a lot opinions flying around about one of these men leaving KU... It has been said that Mangino is too tough on his players, that he oversteps the 'boundary-line' when it comes to personal issues amongst his players. That might be hard to prove, especially when one considers that such a line is very difficult to define. We do know all about the referee incident and the parking ticket thing. One thing is for certain, he wins games. As for Lew Perkins, he has been AD during arguably the best of times at KU. National Champions in basketball, Orange bowl victory etc. Some people don't like him, possibly. if it were up to you, who would you give the bus ticket to, and why?


weapons bans coming soon?

What's going on these days? I am all for guns, but do we really need high-capacity pistols? Or high capacity assault rifles? It seems that the only thing they are good at is not defending yourself from a bunch of bad guys, but killing a bunch of strangers. Is it that hard to reload your trusty 1911? And now this deal in ft. hood. Was it a u.s. citizen? how did he obtain these guns? was he an islamic terrorist? if we allow high-capacity magazines, shouldn't we allow government sponsored health care? if the swiss can do it, why can't we?


Magical Stoplights

GAWD do I hate the stoplights of Lawrence Kansas. Obviously, there is a higher power out there pulling our strings, making us wait for what seems like hours a year at local intersections. I can only guess what the traffic-commisioner-stoplight-programmer-puppeteer-commandant-in-control-of-the-timing has to gain by making lawrence motorists wastes thousands of gallons of fuel sitting at empty intersections. But, what I do know are the lights that have the most magical spell cast over them. You know the ones: twenty cars forced to stop on US-40 at folks road, so that one southbound car can turn left onto 6th. Somebody very important must live north up there. I notice the northbound light doesn't change with the same frequency...HMMM? Downtown lights make pretty good sense-they turn over regularly and predictably. Way to go city-you did something right. Remember when the city tried to synch up the lights on Iowa? Oh ya! You get get from 6th st. to 23rd in like 3-minutes. Not sure what happened there, but those were fun times. Somebody sure didn't like waiting at 15th, excuse me-bob billings memorial developmental causeway. Aside from the waste of precious fuel (I live like the road warrior), we must consider the impact of thousands of cars forced to stop for a minority of cross-traffic and the environmental impact of thousands of cars sitting at intersections polluting our air.... I am sure that if you travel in Lawrence you have your own pet peeve-stoplights....Now then, it is time to speak up and be heard-give me your most hated stoplights, or I will make them all flashing red.
