Elliot Spitzer Forgets His Dentures!!!
The page I landed on had this great posting on 'Why Slumdog needs to win the Oscar' and to be honest with you, I couldn't have said it better. What is said here is absolutely brilliant, and so, without further delay, take a look here.

By the numbers|Unemployment
How 'bout a trillion.
Just numbers to some.
Reality to others.
440,000,000 man hours PER WEEK!!!
21,120,000,000 man hours
(approx) PER YEAR!!!
Now, anyone who knows me, knows I hate math.
And I'm really not that good at it,
although I can lecture well about inverse proportions in photography.
But here's a thought:
Divide 21,120,000,000 by the number of hours, approximately, in one year (which, average for years including leap years) is somewhere around 8,766.
And you end up with:
Please prove me wrong.

Founder, Habitat for Humanity Dies
from the Habitat for Humanity website:
Millard Fuller was a force of nature who turned a simple idea into an international organization that has helped more than 300,000 families move from deplorable housing into simple, decent homes they helped build and can afford to buy and live in,” said Jonathan Reckford, chief executive officer of Habitat for Humanity International. “The entire Habitat family mourns the loss of our founder, a true giant in the affordable housing movement. Our prayers are with the entire Fuller family.

CNN's Revolving Door Policy
Don't let it hit you in the ASS...
CNN=Can't Nail News!
In an effort to boost sagging ratings, CNN jettisons Soledad O'Brien and Miles O'Brien (yes, they are married) in favour of the more attractive ChetZilla and CorpseRoberts, shoring up their flagship AMERICA MOURNING.
America is Mourning.
That's for sure.
CNN shutters SciTech?
I love these two quotes:
CNN spokesperson Christa Robinson
...the unit is being shuttered as the network integrates science, environment and technology reporting into the general editorial structure. "Now that the bulk of our environmental coverage is offered through the Planet in Peril franchise, which is part of the AC360 program, there is no need for a separate unit," Robinson says.CNN Statement:
"Miles has made many contributions to CNN over the years. He is a terrific reporter and we wish him all the best."
DAMN! CNN's send-off statement has all the warmth of deep space!
Hey, Miles, here's your new mantra:
"Something wicked this way comes."

Why? Why? WHY?
Because the youngsters, and others, are stupid.
I remember, back in the day, the "trolls" were cheering that they were rewarded for their ugliness by NOT being HIV+...considering that no one even gave them a second look, and they were rarely picked up by anyone at all.
And what's with all this effort put out to join the poz crowd?
Stupid is as stupid does.
Gay Ad Causes WaMu Failure
Washington Mutual collapse 'biggest in United States history'
A controversial gay-themed ad has claimed another institution in what is being called the biggest banking failure in American history.
ANZ's chief economist, Saul Eslake, says the bank was deemed unsound after its customers, disgusted with the advert, withdrew billions of dollars worth of deposits.
