From the Gotham Times:

Mysterious Abductions "Dent" Garcetti's Image: Incumbent D.A. Urges Citizens to Remain Calm

Gotham Times - "District Attorney hopeful Harvey Dent has received an unprecedented surge in the polls as Gotham City's current D.A., Roger Garcetti, seems powerless to stop the recent wave of kidnappings plaguing our foreboding metropolis. Garcetti is urging residents to remain calm. 'There is no need for panic or drastic measures," said Garcetti. "It is important that Gotham's citizens go about business as usual and keep in mind that all kidnapping victims have been recovered with only minor, irritating injuries."

There's no telling who will be next. Though some suspect it will be the "I"s. Click here for details.

"Marcee Can't Be Real...She Never Gets Old."

"For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, {as to} what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, {as to} what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and {yet} your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a {single} hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.

But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is {alive} today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, {will He} not much more {clothe} you? You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear for clothing?' For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
-Matthew 6:25-34

Broke

So, I broke my toe today. In fact, it was the first thing I did when I got out of bed. I accidentally kicked my dresser and I just knew immediately. I don't know if it's called the ring toe, or the next-to-pinky toe, but it's my second time to have broken the same toe and it hurts much worse this time.

Current Listening

For Kristina's Birthday, I bought her "Raising Sand," a musical collaboration between Allison Krauss and Robert Plant (lead singer of Led Zeppelin).

The pleasant surprise has me ready to try this food item from "The Simpsons."

Also, considering all of the Lord of the Rings references in Led Zeppelin lyrics, it's odd that Robert Plant has turned out to look so much like King Theoden of Rohan.

MacBook Air

Sneaking a blog post in from the apple store. Yep, this MacBook air is pretty thin. Wow.

Humble Pie

Well, I just did an "ego-google". That's where you google your own name and see what people say about you. Don't laugh. You've done it, too. However, Richard Ramsey is a common name, so I usually have to add tags like "film" or "The Oath."

Well, I saw on the google search page that someone had started a Wikipedia article on me. I could see the following on the search page:
Richard Ramsey is an American Filmmaker at Friendswood High School. ... director of many short films also including a full length film entitled, "The Oath". ...
I clicked on it to read the rest and found...nothing. My page was deleted. When I clicked to find out why, it said the following:
02:07, 11 March 2008 Bibliomaniac15 (Talk | contribs) deleted "Richard Ramsey" ‎ (A7 (bio): Real person; DOESN'T INDICATE IMPORTANCE/SIGNIFICANCE).

Wow.

Oh, and no, I didn't start my own Wikipedia page. I wouldn't have called "The Oath of Desormeau" a full-length film.

Incidentally, I may start going by Richard Lee Ramsey, or maybe Richard L. Ramsey. Any thoughts? Too pretentious?
