Washing away again in 'Ritaville

Elderly terr'ists to blame for bus explosion? Oxygen canisters - not the same type that brought down KiluJet flight 592 - are apparently to blame here. But you can never be too sure - I've got $5 betting some of these wrinklies had been illegally buying their prescription meds from Canada, thus making themselves enemies of Big Pharmathe State so I don't think it's too much of a stretch to suggest they were, in fact, terr'ists.

I think it's also interesting to note that they can't even get the evacuation right in Bush's (adoptive) home state of Tex-ass. It's even in Republican Majority leader and former exterminator Tom DeLay's home district ferchrissake. And the fact that people are getting stranded in their "big" (because everything's big in Texass) 'merican-built dumbass SUVs because they're - get this - running out of fuel sitting in 103-degree heat on the gridlocked roads with t he A/C running - comedy gold.

Oh, and the 9th Ward of New Orleans is getting a good soaking again as water once again pours over the top of the levees. But no-one could have predicted that. And remember folks, none of this has anything to do with global warming.

Rev. Michael Hinton has spent two years cutting the Bible down to something that will consume only 100 minutes of your time. I can beat that by two years and 100 minutes.

Avian grief

A touching story of a swallow pining for a dead companion.

Although the first comment kinda spoils the mood.
Hey, God - like praying, only with more swear words.

Head To Christ

Ex-KoRn rocker Brian 'Head' Welch finds God. Uggh. If there's one thing worse than Nu Metal, it's Godbothering Nu Metal. Where are the nice heartwarming stories of young, teenage Bible-belters finding riches and salvation in honest, wholesome sex, drugs and rock and roll? Post! Post!

Internet vs. Real Life

Every now and then you turn over a rock and find someone not well-acquainted with the Internet. Finally: a for them.

Captain Canuck is on his way!

Wow - talk about friendly neighbours! The entire Canadian Navy (yes, we actually have a navy) is on its way to Nawlins to help provide disaster relief in the wake of Katrina and the Waves.

One more wow: In an eerie sense of foreshadowing, Popular Mechanics predicted the New Orleans disaster with remarkable accuracy, back in 2001. Even more ironic? The story was published on Sept 11. Yes, THE Sept 11.

Why not give something decorative you made yourself? Say, right after breakfast?

If y'all haven't seen the transcript of the WWL radio interview with the mayor of New Orleans, y'all should. This guy kicks ass. Also, and this is something I've been waiting to see - before and after aerial pictures of New Orleans.
