. . . and one pill makes you fall out of palm trees, Keith.

Last time I looked, the National Anthem wasn't filled with socialist tripe such as this:
Sus estrellas, sus franjas, la libertad, somos iguales
Somos hermanos, es nuestro himno.
which translates to
Its stars, its stripes, the liberty, we are equals
We are brothers, is our hymn.
Si a la lid contra hueste enemiga,
nos convoca la trompa guerrera,
de Iturbide la sacra bandera,
mexicanos, valientes seguid.
translated into English:
If to the struggle against a hostile host
The warrior trumpet calls us,
The sacred banner of Iturbide,
O Mexicans, follow valiantly.
It seems my friend Kevin has honed the art of writing passages of computer geek porn (my commentary in brackets):
If I weren't constrained by the fun of a 24k dialup connection [unh . . . oh, yeah, baby . . . dial that big boy) today (fun!), I would have grabbed the mySQL [grab 'em! grab 'em hard!] databases from HM when they got the DOS under control [Who's your daddy? Who's in control?] earlier today and flipped the DNS [yeah, that's it, baby. Flip it good.] to blogHOUSTON over to my backup host [Back that thing up. Right here, baby!] (where this blog is hosted).
She received a 60 year sentence for torture and killing of a 12-year-old girl; but at age 29, she's out today.
[The victim was a] 12-year-old Southern Indiana girl who in 1992 was
beaten, stabbed and tortured for hours, and finally set afire while still alive along a dirt road outside of Madison, Ind., by a gang of four teenage girls,
She's angry about what happened to Shanda, and also angry that Rippey is getting out early. "Just serve your sentence," she says. "Be respectful of my child and serve your sentence. She's never been able to do this. She's tried to get out from day one."
One of the signs a TV show is about to jump the shark is when they start spinning off spinoffs. There are some exceptions, such as a couple that spun off from the original shark-jumper Happy Days -- Laverne & Shirley and Mork & Mindy. But then they went and did Joanie Loves Chachi. Shark jumping ensued before Lennie Loves Squiggy and Pinky Loves Leather could get off the ground.
Here's one for you legal types:

California drivers deliberately running out of fuel on the highway to make the government give them a gallon of gas.
. . . so I need a little help with this one, because I sure don't understand.
Bush said that high gasoline prices are like a hidden tax on consumers and businesses, although he said the nation's economy was strong. He urged Congress
to take back some of the billions of dollars in tax incentives it gave energy
companies, saying that with record profits, they don't need the breaks.
The religious right is fond of saying that the gay marriage debate is all about money, such as the shared ownership of assets.
Olivia Shelltrack and Fondray Loving, along with their children, will
continue to live in their Black Jack home while the city reviews its occupancy
The city recently denied the couple an occupancy permit because they did
not fit the city's definition of family. The ordinance defines family as, "An
individual or two or more persons related by blood, marriage or adoption, or a
group of not more than three persons who need not be related by blood, marriage
or adoption, living together as a single non-profit housekeeping unit in a
Black Jack does allow unmarried couples to live together, said Mayor Norm
McCourt. However, the ordinance does not allow for an unmarried couple with more
than one child.
Prior to 9/11, while I would have scolded this guy for tagging Air Force One and causing the taxpayer to have to pay for the cleanup, I might have secretly admired his cojones for pulling such a stunt.
Walked to the library today to save gas.
Remember the Y2K hype? It's easy to look back now at how silly the whole episode was, but some people were genuinely frightened.

Father shoots at computer because his 22-year-old son spends too much time playing with it.
He told deputies that although he told his son he was going to shoot the computer, the gun accidentally fired.
The bullet hit the wall about three feet from where the son was sitting.
Why Representative Charles H. Taylor (R-NC) is blocking the funding for a Flight 93 memorial:
For Taylor, a large landowner in the mountains of western Carolina, the
issue comes down to principle: The federal government is already the largest
landowner in the country, and he believes that no additional tax dollars should
go to more land buying for this or any other memorial. Beyond that, the families
have committed to raising half the $60 million needed to build the memorial but
so far have raised $7.5 million. Taylor is concerned that the federal government
will be left holding the bag.
Is it just me, or is Hit & Run a little too excited about the thought of Tom Cruise eating placenta?

Web site operators posting sexually explicit information must place official government warning labels on their pages or risk being imprisoned for up to five years, the Bush administration proposed Thursday.
My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him.
Gen 19:33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
Gen 19:34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, [and] lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
Gen 19:35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
Gen 19:36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

Someone in JoAnn Emerson's office (or someone who hacked into it) needs to wash their mouth out with soap:
Nobody expects to get a letter from a member of Congress that ends with an expletive.
But that's what happened when Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo., recently corresponded with a resident of her southeast Missouri district. The letter ended with a profane, seven-letter insult beginning with the letter a - "i think you're an [asshole]."
[But at least she was polite about it.]
Connor said that Emerson personally signed the letter, dated Feb. 15.
She also included a handwritten personal message at the bottom: "PS - please forgive the delay in responding."

It hadn't rained in weeks.
Good to see death isn't keeping Randy Rhoads down.

The religious right just lost an arrow from their quiver. They keep saying homosexuality doesn't happen in nature, so it shouldn't be allowed to happen in humans.

Satellite navigation provider TomTom routes drivers into a river.
Sat nav supplier TomTom said: "We could re-route drivers."

Got a call from the county ambulance board yesterday. Apparently, I got enough write-in votes in the recent election to win a position on the board.

An online diary that Underwood appears to have kept for several years
reveals a man frequently depressed, angry and with violent thoughts. In a
question posted prominently on the blog, he asks, "If you were a cannibal, what
would you wear to dinner?"
On his radio show last night, even Drudge was bitching about Big Oil's enormous compensation packages for it's executives while gas is pushing three bucks a gallon.
You'd think, given the glowing puff pieces aired on CNN and other outlets over the past couple of days, the attempt by gay parents to include their families in the annual White House Easter Egg Roll this year went swimmingly, what with all the White House statements that "All families are welcome to participate," and all.

About 10.5 gallons of water containing plutonium and other radioactive
material leaked inside a compound at the plant in Rokkasho on Tuesday, said Yukio
Takahashi, spokesman for Japan Nuclear Fuel Ltd. The accident was caused when a robotic arm mistakenly loosened a plug in a container filled with the water, he said.

I nominate Oprah for a Gordon Gekko Award:
"I was coming back from Africa on one of my trips," she said. "I had taken one of my wealthy friends with me. She said, 'Don't you just feel guilty? Don't you just feel terrible?' I said, 'No, I don't. I do not know how me being destitute is going to help them.' "Because of the title People gave the piece, Oprah Winfrey: Wealth Is 'A Good Thing', I think she'd also fit right in in our "Water Is Wet" department.
But Uncle Sam wants GI Joe in there, too.
. . . when I say the Democrats have built their entire philosophy and sense of life around envy? Then take a look at one Fired Up Missouri poster's lengthy gripe about the fact that 9th District Congressman Kenny Hulshof has a wine cellar.
I live in Hulshof's district. Not in the fancy part of Kenny's neighborhood
where the homes have wine cellars, but in decidely un-French Southern Boone
County. Folks where I live --as is the case in much of the rural 9th
Congressional-- drink Budweiser from the can, Miller Lite if it's on sale.
Found in the ads on my buddy Kevin's sidebar:
Almost two decades ago, when I first took a variation on the World's Smallest Political Quiz, there were two questions on it that kept me from being at the very top of the ideological map. I don't know if the quiz has changed, or if I took an offshoot quiz, but those questions aren't on the quiz that pops up all over the internet today. One question dealt with the military -- I believe in a robust (though voluntary) military to defend our nation. (Two decades later, I still haven't figured out how to PAY for such a military, since I don't believe in taxes, though.) The other was on immigration.
