Well, finally got rid of that ol' Globular Warming. Now we have that old Globular Thunder Storm weather. At least it keeps things cool. But we had the power knocked-out for about 7 hours Friday evening. Where's that perfect place to live, anyway? Oh yeah, no such thing.

Just What America Needs—Another Thug Show
by L. Neil Smith
I almost never review things I don't like, figuring it's a whole lot better use of my time to direct my friends to things that are worthwhile. But sometimes—especially when there's a trend involved—it can be as important to slap mosquitoes as it is to feed the birds.

Doomed to a Fatal Delusion over Climate Change
by Andrew Bolt
Psychiatrists have detected the first case of "climate change delusion"—and they haven't even yet got to Kevin Rudd and his global warming guru.

Cheney Commits Treason
by Jim Davidson
Yesterday, I was re-reading "Preparing the Battlefield," by Seymour M. Hersh who writes for the New Yorker magazine. His article gives extensive details about Bush and Cheney activities in support of Iranian opposition groups.

My Little Litmus Test
by Ann Morgan
In your issue of two weeks ago, there was a mention of the Smith-Suprynowicz litmus test for determining the pro-freedom postion of an individual.

Reassign Him to the X-Files!!
by A.X. Perez

It didn't work for Spain or Rome and it won't bloody work for us either.

"Obama is White"
by James Glaser
Yesterday, this black guy comes into my gallery and he is walking all around asking questions and seems like a nice guy. He is big. Big like six foot eight, two hundred and eighty pounds, and dressed real nice. There are a lot of professional football players who either went to FAMU or Florida State right here in Tallahassee, but it seems weird asking, "are you a pro-athlete?" What if he was a high school and college star that never made it to the pros? Then you would be making him feel bad, and I guess if he was a pro, and he wanted me to know, he would have told me. However his size and the way he dressed are not what I am writing about. I'm writing about his bumper sticker.
