"It's morning in America, Hackenbush, and you work the nightshift."

"Adoption advocates are outraged over Fox's new reality special 'Who's Your Daddy?,' which has a woman guess which of eight men is her biological father and gives her $100,000 in cash if she chooses correctly.

"If she guesses the wrong man, the 'imposter' walks away with the cash."
'Daddy' sires controversy, by Marisa Guthrie, Daily News, December 16, 2004

Fox - The Cruelty Network.

God, even I'm appalled.

"So there you have it. The apocalypse is the locomotive of capitalism, the inspiration for revolutionary socialism, the bedrock of America's manifest destiny and the undeclared religion of all those pseudo-rationalists who, like The Economist, champion the progress of liberal democracy."

The end of the world. A brief history. Why do end-of-time beliefs endure?, The Economist, in better form than usual, December 16, 2004.

"Most machines don't improve with use. Old pickup trucks don't gradually become Ferraris just by driving them fast, and a pocket calculator won't change into a supercomputer by crunching lots of numbers.

"The human body is different. As weightlifters know, the more that people use their muscles, the stronger they become. And unused muscles do not remain preserved; neglect causes them to waste away, or atrophy."
Why do Workouts Work?, Science@NASA, December 10, 2004

Or, Why our Bodies Love to Suffer.

It was at NASA so it's probably right.

"Other stars may have helped Kerry raise money, but they also served to embarrass him, putting their unbridled contempt for Bush on proud display during a July fund-raiser at Radio City Music Hall. ... John Mellencamp sang a song that called Bush a "cheap thug who sacrifices our young.' ..."
Dems to Hollywood: The End, by Scot Lehigh, Boston Globe, December 15, 2004

Yes, telling the truth is always embarrassing. Especially when set to music.

Scot needs to get over it. The world is full of liberals who are smarter, richer, prettier, and, well, much more liberal than he is. And most stars who were poor and then became rich and famous are liberal because they've been there, they know what a hell being poor is, and they're trying to lift us all up. These "stars" have much more in common with the angry bush voters than the millionaire administration we got now. And if the angry bush voters ever figure this out, man, will they be even more angry.

"SACRAMENTO - The concept of requiring all Californians to carry their own health insurance is gaining momentum in the Capitol, as some lawmakers and healthcare advocates see it as a politically viable way to deal with the state's 5.3 million uninsured.

"With the November defeat of Proposition 72 halting efforts to require employers to provide healthcare coverage, the concept looks likely to be part of next year's legislative debate. But it faces huge hurdles over how to make it financially feasible for the poor and enforce it."
Mandatory Health Insurance Is Urged. Requiring all in the state to carry coverage would address healthcare crisis, backers argue. Critics say subsidies for the poor would be needed. (Duh! Ed) By Jordan Rau, LA Times, December 15, 2004

Just what CA needs; another dumb law. We already have one requiring us all to carry auto insurance and that doesn't work either.

You know, I think if we put LSD in the water it would be an improvement.

"PRESIDENT Bush will hold the most lavish and expensive inauguration celebration in American history when he is sworn in for his second term next month. But he hopes to temper the four-day extravaganza by holding special events to honour US troops in Iraq.

The week of celebrations will cost over £20 million but Mr Bush does not want to forget US troops."
Bush's second inauguration will be the most expensive in history, By Tim Reid, Times Online, December 16, 2004

How much body armor would even half of that $40 Million USD buy?

My country is so fucked up.

The lawyers for Green presidential candidate David Cobb and Libertarian presidential candidate Michael Badnarik, along with Kerry-Edwards 2004 have added election tampering to a civil suit filed against the state of Ohio over problems with the state's recount, RAW STORY has learned., Raw Story, December 16, 2004

Hm, we might not be dead yet.

"And the illiterati have three very, very big allies in this battle against reason. First, they have the human ego, which says that it cannot possibly have evolved from a form of life it now views as lower. Second, they have some within the religious community who seem to think that Michelangelo’s sixteenth century vision of Adam is somehow religious canon, and therefore, if evolution happened, there is no God. And they say these people are simple-minded. And, finally, they have a few professionals who have devoted their lives to proving the theory of evolution to be false. So far all they’ve been able to prove is that if we change half of what we know about the continental drift and exclude all other data (like tree ring records that go back far earlier,) it is possible for the Earth to be 6,000 years old. Also, they've invented something called a 'missing link' that has no basis in reality, but cooks up nicely with a good red herring."
Democrats: Get ready to offend the ignorant, by Avery Walker, RAW STORY, December 11?, 2004 (via Wood S Lot)

"An Oakland Tribune employee spoke to Jesus for several minutes before police arrived..."
Upset woman jumps to her death at Oakland Tribune. Rent dispute leads to suicide as hundreds of horrified onlookers gasp in disbelief, by Mike Martinez and Cecily Burt, Inside Bay Area, December 11, 2004

I think this woman was a little more than upset.

This happened at (in? on? from?) the building Laurel works in. If she wasn't so busy, she'd have blogged it.

Posted by Ginger Mayerson @ 07:50 PM PST [Link]


"If it's ever been on K-Tel or Ronco, it's in. If it features hand claps, cow bells, syrupy orchestration, walls of sound, wrecking crews, sha-la-las, toothy teen idols, candy-based metaphors for carnal acts or lyrics about hugging, squeezing and rocking all night long, it's in."
The Bubble Gum Machine (thanks a lot, Laurel, you know how much time I wasted on this site?)

This is... I don't even know what this is.

"Chile's former President Augusto Pinochet has been placed under house arrest on human rights charges.

"The former military ruler was indicted over the disappearance of nine opposition activists and the killing of one of them during his 17-year regime."
Chilean judge charges Pinochet, BBC, December 13, 2004

Whoa... I never thought this would actually happen. Gives me hope that others will be brought to justice. In the future.

"The total blog (A Live Journal, no longer available after the March entries. GM) reflects joy, frustration and anger in her life. It claims she was grounded for getting an 89 on a test and faced computer restrictions when her mother found her Wicca books.

"It posts an "ode to suicide," her disdain for being forced to play softball, and self-congratulatory excitement for making honors choir.

"Most of the entries include a graphic of an blue kitten with expressions illustrating her mood.

"The Sunday Telegraph said Waterman seemed "a normal, angst-ridden teenager." If she is convicted, it added, she would be able to claim notoriety 'as the blogging world's first killer.'"
Accused teen gains Internet notoriety, by Tony Carroll, Juneau Empire, December 12, 2004

Good grief.
