LA Times Headline- "Bin Laden Trail Still Cold"

For All Of You Who Doubted The Existence Of The God Of Justice And Mercy... A fire broke out in the studio the Black Eyed Peas were using to record their new album, destroying half a million dollar in gear. The best part? They only hav their lame-ass candle-lighting selves to blame.

Still Crazy After All These Years
An excellent piece from AlterNet detailing the insanity of Alan Keyes. My favorite passage is the following: "During a campaign appearance in Bedford, N.H., in 2000, Keyes asked a class of fifth-graders, "If I were to lose my mind right now and pick one of you up and dash your head against the floor and kill you, would that be right?" He then went on to tell the children that some courts and politicians think it's OK to murder 6-month-old children."

The Unavoidable "Post Married Gay Affair Resignation" Two-Point Bump The people of New Jersey have spoken after the resignation of their governor, and it is a resounding "We could give a fuck." Public opinion of James McGreevey is virtually unchanged as compared to two weeks ago, before his scandals and resignation.

We Were Getting Worried A few months had passed since PETA came out with their last offensive ad campaign. The wait is over. The animal rights group is launching a campaign with an image of recently deceased Ronald Reagan and the tagline "Win one for the Gipper! Animal fats DOUBLE your risk of Alzheimer’s."

How About "Bullshit The Greed Weasel?" Something called the "Business Software Alliance" has launched "Play It Cybersafe," a bullshit campaign to scare schoolkids away from downloading mediocre music on the web. Their sketchy as hell ferret mascot looks much more like a mascot for piracy and semi-legal offshore websites than a pet of Jack Valenti's. I'm already printing out MC NO Shame's "Cyber-Ethics Champion Certificate" to congratulate him on his brave stand to no longer download pirated BBW porn via Grokster.
