Thinking it might be awhile before I go over any bridges....fortunately, I don't live near any bodies of water. What a disaster last night in the Twin Cities. I shook my head in disgust when Homeland Security rushed to issue a releasing to reassure us the collapse wasn't an act of terrorism. No newscaster I saw even asked that question. The cynic in me feels it was just another ploy by the Bush Administration to toss out the word "terrorism." Has Dubya even made a statement on the tragedy yet? Or was he too busy finishing My Pet Goat last night and couldn't be disturbed?
This Pat Tillman story is also incredibly tragic...Rummy takes the stand and says nothing:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/02/washington/02tillman.html?_r=1&adxnnl=1&oref=slogin&adxnnlx=1186061336-S/Ve6nVe4rZPzzG3oQBVFQ
Considering my daughter has every Dora the Explorer toy ever made, I had a moment of panic when I learned Fisher Price planned to recall a million toys due to lead based paint...fortunately hers were purchased prior to May 2007.....first it was killer tooth paste, now its lead based paint in childrens toys...Are the Chinese trying to kill Americans thru commerce?:http://breakingnews.nypost.com/dynamic/stories/C/CHINA_TOY_RECALL?SITE=NYNYP&SECTION=HOME
Barry Bonds is still waiting to catch Hank Aaron. While I hate Bonds, I'm more angry at MLB then with Bonds. The league and the players union turned a blind eye to steroids. They enabled Bonds, Sosa, and others of their ilk to cheat in order to sell the game. Keep in mind Bonds isn't the only homerun king who was able to boost his stats on an unlevel playing field. Babe Ruth never had to face African Americans in his playing days. Oh to be at Chavez Ravine booing Bonds:http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-scene2aug02,0,648309.story?coll=la-home-center

Great White hits Columbus later this month....just as their former manager who was held responsible for the deaths of 100 Rhode Island concertgoers is set to get out of prison....Note to Jack Russell...no pyro at the Alrosa please:http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2007/08/01/great-white-manager-responsible-for-detonating-2003-nightclub-fire-will-be-up-for-parole/
Can you solve the mystery of the wax museum? Someone depants Hitler and FDR and swiped Phil Lynotts guitar (and by the way if you ever get to see BBC Crown Jewels featuring Thin Lizzy on VH1 Classic, you'll come away convinced they were one of the greatest rock bands EVER):http://knac.com/article.asp?ArticleID=5735
More crap as it happens............
