A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Serenity again: I went and saw Serenity again last night. Apparently not enough of you went out to see it, and it only picked up about $10 million. So, in an effort to get more of you out to the theaters, I thought you might want to check out this:

Yes, each and every one of them appears in the movie.

I encourage you to see the movie. I also encourage you to go to a decent theater to see it. The preview screening arranged for bloggers and others was in a decidedly less-than-modern theater. I have a better sound system at home than the AMC La Jolla has. When I saw Serenity again tonight, it was in a newer theater with a Dolby Digital sound system and it made quite a bit of difference.

On a totally unrelated note: I know that leasing cars makes zilch economic sense. It's a rip-off. You make car payments, but you don't own the car and you take the brunt of new car depreciation. Having said that, I can understand paying a premium to not have to deal with all of the garbage caused by an aging car. Attempting to leave the theater, my gorram car battery decided to die. I haven't had the dang thing for more than two years -- and it's dead. I got a jump and got home, but this is ridiculous. The fuel pump relay died last week. The car just turned four years old -- and this is the second battery I've put in the thing. Once this gorram Chevy Cavalier finally gives up the ghost, I think I'll be buying a used Lexus or Toyota (yes, I know they're manufactured by the same company). I'm done with American cars.

Batteries don't usually go out that quickly. You might look at the cables and the battery terminals to make sure they are not corroded.
I just replaced the ORIGINAL battery in my 1991 Honda Civic a few weeks ago...Darn thing only lasted 14 years...It was a Delco Freedom battery. It is surprising to note how many parts in the Honda were made in the good ol' US of A. And the car itself was assembled in Canada. Why are US companies falling all over themselves to move offshore when Foreign companies can make stuff here??
Btw, the Honda does seem to run better with the new battery, starts much quicker too...
