Iran Shows Off Newest Strike Fighters

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

And they are the pinnacle of 1974 technology! Are you done laughing yet, because this story just gets funnier: apparently, the “photos” of the F-14s and the MiG 29s are actually pictures of plastic models! I can’t find the photo gallery on the Foreign Ministry website, but they have been known to dabble in this [...]

Marriage: The Other White Meat

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

Believe me, being black is not the reason Beetlejuice (left) is still single.

If you’re a sports fan, today may be the day for you. No less than three huge sporting events are on tap today, and I will be channel-surfing through them all. Today is the final stage of the Tour de France. Spain’s Carlos Sastre (above) leads Cadel Evans by one minute, five seconds as the [...]

Iran Will Hang 30 Convicts Sunday

Wow. Iran makes Texas look like a pink doily, underpantsy, tea party place. No offense, Becky. TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) — Thirty people convicted of drug and other criminal charges will be hanged on Sunday, Iran’s semi-official Fars News Agency reported Saturday. Semi-official? Fars must be like our Associated Press. The 30 had their cases tried [...]

Between Iraq And A Sandy Place

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Did anyone see the story this week that stated Iraq is now safe enough for tourists? Apparently, the new government is trying to ramp up the tourist trade. While that is terrific news for the safety of civilians and the military there, one wonders if Iraq would be anyone’s first choice for fun in the [...]

Rockingham “Rocky” Earp, 2000-2008

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

We lost a family member today. Our rabbit, Rocky, had to be euthanized this morning. When the missus came downstairs to let him run around the yard, Rocky’s head was tilted at a funny angle and his rear legs were lame. She immediately called the veterinarian’s office and they told her to bring him in. [...]

Police Kill Armed Man At Christian Radio Station

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

In fairness, the officers warned him not to play any more Amy Grant songs. Oh come on, Grant is pretty hot, but it’s Christian music! I only want to hear that in church. And even then . . . Yeah, I am definitely going to Hell. FERGUSON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Police said they shot and [...]

“No Soup For You!”

Friday, July 25th, 2008

That is Kyle’s new catch phrase when he makes a save against me when we play hockey in front of the house. Thankfully, he keeps the trash-talking in the happy box during his games. The last thing I need is for my seven-year old to become like The Badger. Kyle’s team has been on a [...]
