The Lusty Lady

A Seattle landmark no more.
I went into the lobby once to use their cash machine. Everyone was very friendly.
Bill died because he hired a hooker who was giving him a blowjob while he drove through downtown Seattle and he had a heart attack. The car crashed, the hooker fled the scene, and Bill was dead. That's when everything went to shit."

They Read It

so you don't have to then tell you what's worth your time.

Ooh, Soccer!

Ronaldo, is that you?

The Birds

Andrew Sullivan's readers have uncomfortably noted that wind turbines, one feel-good alternative to oil drilling in the Gulf, kill a lot of birds, about 300,000 a year.
But not nearly as many as building windows.
No one mentions cats. Hundreds of millions, according to the American Bird Conservancy. Of course, they're not killing brown pelicans.

Absurdity O' Teh Day

There are always so many that I usually fail to notice. But this is just too much.
It seems GM does not want anyone to say Chevy ever again. When I read that, I thought maybe they were retiring the Chevrolet brand.
But nooo, they've hired a new ad agency that has this thing about politically correct branding. Wonder if they considered the fallout from being the laughingstock of late night for the next week. Beats lame primary jokes, eh David? (I don't speak directly to Jay.)
I love America.

Cheap Shot Dept.

I always loved Leno's Jaywalking even though it seemed like a set-up.
But here we have the Advanced Placement, otherwise known as the APs, to confirm our worst suspicions. American children are not getting educamated.
My fav:
Most importantly, men now know how to make their own sandwiches.

Mmm, sandwiches.

Sarah's Girls

The part of the FOX News report I liked best is "Palin is not commenting."
Sarah not commenting when she's offered air time by her favorite? How can that be?
Remember, I read it so you don't have to.

Don't Say I Didn't Warn You

on a mind fast?

I Didn't Know That

Obama donned a bow tie, presumably in honor of retiring Justice John Paul Stevens'  sartorial trademark, when he gave a message about Stevens' retirement. I think it's cute, but also spookily reminiscent of the black Muslim Brother Mouzone featured as a hired hit man in The Wire.

Torture, Ch. XXX, Etc., Ad Infinitum, Blah-blah

There's a new report.
OK, but so what? Every member of the Cheney-Bush torture regime still roams free, having not even been given a wrist-slap for ordering, condoning, participating in or writing twisted legal rationalizations for these violations. Why would the revelations in PHR's new report matter except as confirmation for what we already have long suspected? Because there is a possibility, PHR argues, that unlike the justifications written for enhanced interrogation techniques, the Office of Legal Counsel may not have approved the experiments as being legal. That might make administration officials liable for new charges that might be prosecutable.

Chad Liked This

Chad is what I call my inner 14-year-old boy. My inner Bob thought it was a bit much. I don't know how to explain Bob, but he's sort of old-fashioned about some things. Also, he's missed the last 27 years of entertainment and everything else.

I Don't Recall

Gonzo may really have meant it when he said he couldn't remember. The rest of us just go along believing the fantasies.
...every time we remember anything, the neuronal structure of the memory is delicately transformed, or reconsolidated. And that is why it's so easy to convince naive subjects that they met Bugs Bunny at Disneyland.

You Don't Know Shit

But that's okay. You're human.
...63 percent of Americans consider themselves more intelligent than the average American, a statistical impossibility. In a different survey, 70 percent of Canadians said they considered themselves smarter than the average Canadian.)
