Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Define "interesting".So, let's sit back and see what we can do for inflight entertainment!
Hoban 'Wash' Washburn: [deadpan] Oh God, oh God, we're all going to die?
VP Takes A Shot
While the East Coast was busy getting record breaking snow, (where's mine?) the Vice-President of the United States was busy giving hunters and gunowners a black eye by shooting a hunting buddy in the head. He must've slipped up and told him he voted for Kerry last time around....Way to go, Dick!
FEMA: Too Little, Too Late And Crypt-Keeper Reforms
In the wake of Michael "Way to go, Brownie" Browns testimony late last week, the FEMA Crypt-Keeper Michael Chertoff has announced "sweeping reforms" at FEMA. One would hope that his resignation would be the top priority. What are his suggestions? Grow the agency even bigger, spend more money and grab more power. Sorry, Mikey but that's going in the wrong direction. Let me make a suggestion to you, umm-kaay? Take FEMA backwards to the days of the old Civil Defense program. Ya see, that was a system that was "in place" and didn't rely on an absentee agency for intial aid. People on the ground at the scene already knew what to do and had supplies and procedures on hand to deal with disaster. Retool and republish DOD/Civil Defense publication H-14 and put a copy in every household in America. If you're going to waste my money at least waste it on something useful. In the meantime...update your resume.
CIA Counter Terrorism Head Fired For Opposing Torture
You heard it right, kiddies. The man at the top of the CIA's counter terrorism group was fired by the Bush regime for opposing torture of prisoners. Of course, the Bush administration doesn't condone torture or send prisoners abroad to be tortured. Acts like this certainly convince me of that. What about you?
What Would Mohammed Do?
Thanks to Brad Spangler for posting this, for I certainly would have never run across it otherwise. A Muslim points out for others what the reaction of the Prophet Mohammed would be to the Jyllands-Posten "Mohammed Cartoon" controversy.
Breakin' The Law, Breakin' The Law
And doing it to catch criminals. Seems the sheriffs in Spotsylvania County have been doing some hands on investigating into prostitution in their area. Never ones to be accused of laying down on the job the upright men in blue (or brown) have been receiving favours from the local working girls and paying for it with taxpayer funds. $350 a pop, in some cases. I knew I should have become a cop....the perks are just too good. You get tax payer funded sex, a gun, a fast car and a license to harrass.
