Breast Cancer and Horse Piss

NPR has a Friday news dump story up that everyone should pay attention to. Especially if you own stock in a certain pharmaceutical company. The short version: if I were a lawyer, I'd be rushing to court right now with the class action papers, because a life of wealth and ease would come shortly after that.

WaPo, via Froomkin:

"Q Why did he decide to give enemy body counts? That's something that they've generally tried to stay away from.

"America is a Christian" nation crapoloa too odiferous even for Cal Thomas

WaPo:

The prophet Isaiah wrote: "Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales...Before Him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by Him as worthless and less than nothing." (Isaiah 40:15-16). That doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room for those who claim America is a "Christian nation."

Another Milestone in Iraq Our Media Completely Ignores

Departments: 

25,000. Think about that for a minute. And remember: given the numbers estimated by actual scientists who are not sycophantic journalists or career concerned military people which suggest we've been lied to abuot the actual Iraqi body count, it's probable that the US casualty numbers have been lowballed as well.

World's Tallest Man to Pull Chertoff Out of Lieberman's Ass

Chertoff better not eat in any black-owned restaurants in NOLA. Really, the arrogance of these people is stunning at times. It wouldn't surprise me if some overworked, low-level FEMA employee just shot him, the next time he got out of a taxpayer funded hookermobile car.

I Need a British Girlfriend

I bitch about TV all the time, but it's not really the case that I hate it so much. Rather, I'm just pissed that I can't be a lazy slob and enjoy a passive moment of slacktivism, and at the same time be stimulated intellectually in the tiniest way. Thank Shiva for Netflix, which allows me to experience some truly severe envy of the British, or at least of those in the 90s (I have no idea if they still are making TV this good).
