News... of the World 2

Python gets serious. Terry Jones writes the only book on Chaucer to feature the author in drag the dust jacket.

The Man Date. Belying the much touted Red State-Blue State dichotomy, two straight men going to an art museum is worthy of feature section coverage in the New York Times. Wow! I have to say I am rather partial to the 'Red State' ethos that men should only spend time together playing football, arm wrestling or kicking each others ass for looking at one another funny.

B&B guests drawn to big cats. A winery/hotel with tigers in the back. What's the worst that could happen?

Urban, Wilson Take Top CMT Awards Honors. Is it ironic that one of the top artists in country music has 'Urban' as a surname? You see my irony detector exploded with my TV. (Gratuitous in joke:) "'Kenny Chesney will take his shirt off at the drop of a hat,' Foxworthy cracked." Uh-huh.

Feline lovers, hunters hiss over cat hunt. Now Reese, can any place that is considering letting people shoot cats at will be as bad as you say it is?

Military Bill Carries Range of Extra Spending. It's a pork filled docket rocket! Not much about body armor, but plenty about mineral rights, border tightening and aid to the Palestinians. They should just be greedy and extend the PATRIOT ACT and add private accounts to Social Security while their at it. What's worst is that probably the only way Dianne Feinstein could get aid for landslide damage is to join this shambolic feeding frenzy. It is almost certain that the Republican echo chamber will cry:"but the other side is doing it too" on account of this desperate measure. Technically true but in the same way a kid who murders his parents asks for leniency because he's an orphan.
