Sarah warned them to stay out of her e-mails. Now she had to use the dive bombing eagle tactic.

Here in NE Mississippi they just shoot the Eagles. Endangered or protected species means nothing to rednecks. Deer season is 24/7/365 a year. Funny thing is most of them vote Democrat year after year.

Clearly, they’re upset about trademark infringement. They should hire Righthaven.

We should examine who they are attacking. Perhaps they know how to distinguish between conservatives and liberals.

"This story cannot be true. No one uses the post office anymore."

In Alaska, we use the post offices as the "nerve/news centers" of the towns. With no home delivery, everybody has to make the trip to the PO, so they spend plenty of time there, talking to friends, getting the latest scoop on all the news. Without our post offices, we wouldn't know who was doing what with who... And other juicy morsels.

Dood...that sure looks like Valdez! I’ve seen over 100 eagles in one one-hour session at Dogpatch.
