Though I have never been considered very politically correct, being a throwback to a former era, I strongly object to the name of the local professional football team, the Washington Redskins. This name is more than irritating, it is offensive and insensitive. It is timely to change the name of this team right now. The team should be called the Maryland Redskins

An R-rated film may include hard language, or tough violence, or nudity within sensual scenes, or drug abuse or other elements, or a combination of some of the above, so that parents are counseled, in advance, to take this advisory rating very seriously. Parents must find out more about an R-rated movie before they allow their teenagers to view it.Hmmm, hard language, tough violence, drug abuse, teenagers watching with their parents... that's not exactly what I strive for in my love life. "Nudity within sensual scenes" is nice, though.

In other Marney news, she crawled across the floor for the first time last night (and the second time and third and fourth...). Karen and I were sitting in our basement, eating chinese food and watching TV while Marney napped. A little bit after she woke up, she spied my plate and crawled straight toward it. Once there, I picked her up and moved her back across the room... and she went striaght back to the plate. Repeat 10-20 times.
We had seen her take a couple tentative moves forwards, but this was truly the first time that we've seen her crawl so directly and speedily.
Time to babyproof the house.
