Crap Rapper Andre 3000 from the group Outkast is set to play the greatest rocker of all time Jimi Hendrix. This is a disgrace to the memory of Hendrix. I love Jimi, but there is no way in burning pits of hell I would ever watch this movie. VH1 made a Hendrix movie that was good, I think I'll stick to that one.

Reading the Tulsa World yesterday and they had a story about exchange students that live here and they get use to the differences between the counties. One of the kids they talked to was from Germany who has lived here for three years and still finds it unusual to add sales tax to stuff he buys. It seems over in Europe the sales tax is already added to the labeled price. My God, how much more sense does that make then the way we do it here? A hell of a lot. I hate going to Wal-Mart and seeing something that cost $19.95 and I have say $22 with me. Can I afford it? I have to get out the old calculator and add up the sales tax to find it ends up being something like $25. But if I can't figure that out I take to the product up to the checkout and find out I don't have enough and then I'm embarrassed in front hundreds of people. No thank you. The price should say $24.93 - Tax Included. I'm not big on emulated what Europe does, but this is one thing I could live with.
