Congress decided to have debates about the killing of Christmas.

Congress decided to have debates about the killing of Christmas. Here is an actual passage/poem by Congressman Dingell.

'Twas the week before Christmas and all through the House,no bills were passed 'bout which Fox News could grouse.Tax cuts for the wealthy were passed with great cheer,so vacations in St. Barts soon should be near.Katrina kids were all nestled snug in motel beds,while visions of school and home danced in their heads.In Iraq, our soldiers need supplies and a plan,and nuclear weapons are being built in Iran.Gas prices shot up, consumer confidence fell.Americans feared we were in a fast track to ... well.Wait, we need a distraction, something divisive and wily,a fabrication straight from the mouth of O'Reilly.We will pretend Christmas is under attack,hold a vote to save it, then pat ourselves on the back.Silent Night, First Noel, Away in the Manger,Wake up Congress, they're in no danger.This time of year, we see Christmas everywhere we go,From churches to homes to schools and, yes, even Costco.What we have is an attempt to divide and destroywhen this is the season to unite us with joy.At Christmastime, we're taught to unite.We don't need a made-up reason to fight.So on O'Reilly, on Hannity, on Coulter and those right-wing blogs.You should sit back and relax, have a few egg nogs.'Tis the holiday season; enjoy it a pinch.With all our real problems, do we really need another Grinch?So to my friends and my colleagues, I say with delight,a Merry Christmas to all, and to Bill O'Reilly, happy holidays.Ho, ho, ho. Merry Christmas.

I need to put on some shades when looking at this!

My Sister and her Boyfriend got engaged on Christmas! :) brother proposed on christmas also last year.. guess thats a trend huh..

Weblogic 8.1 SP2 and Acegi framework

Here is a Workaround for Weblogic 8.1 SP2 with
Acegi framework.
BEA has fixed the problem in SP3..but I did not
have the luxury of upgrading Weblogic in the middle of a deployment..lesson learned(Always develop on the same
version that is in production).I used Spring 1.2.5
DelegatingFilterProx which was "inspired" by the
filterToBean cousin located in the Acegi package.

Spring and Weblogic.

Spring Integration with WebLogic Server by Andy Piper, Rod Johnson, Chris Wall and Nick Tran -- WebLogic Server 9.0 provides a platform for enhanced management, ease-of-use and scalability of Java applications. The Spring Framework enables a simpler, POJO based, approach to J2EE development without sacrificing the power of the platform. This article describes the synergy of these two systems, and introduces the Spring on WebLogic kit.

The classic LazyInitializationException

public class CategoryDAOImpl
extends HibernateDaoSupport
implements ICategoryDAO
//~ Methods -------------------------------------

public List loadAll( ) {
return getHibernateTemplate( ).loadAll( Category.class );

public List loadAllWithChildren(){
return getHibernateTemplate().find("from Category category left join fetch category.children");

I've seen a million and one post about how to load object associations at run time, without having hibernate through a LazyInitializationException.
There seems to be two ways on doing this, in a DAO using the left join fetch clause, or if you are using Spring use the OpenSessionInViewFilter, this will create a hibernate session per user thread in a web application.

Critics call for great white shark's release

"Free Big Al!"

Why do we(hummans) do this?
I feel like this shark is thinking ‘why the heck am I in here? , im going to kill anything that touches me until my release!

Aquarium officials believe the 88-pound, 5-foot-3-inch shark attacked the smaller, slower animals only as a reflex when it bumped the other sharks, not in a predatory rage.

"Van Sommeran said the million-gallon tank where the shark lives "is really just a bucket. ... His nose is raw from repeated contact with the barrier walls.
"This animal is injured and becoming agitated," he said.
