    Donald Trump’s distinctive rhetorical style — think of a drunk with a bullhorn reading aloud James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake under water — poses an almost insuperable challenge to people whose painful duty is to try to extract clarity from his effusions. For example, last week, during a long stream of semi-consciousness in Fort Worth, this man who as president would nominate members of the federal judiciary vowed to “open up” libel laws to make it easier to sue — to intimidate and punish — people who write “negative” things. Well. Trump, the thin-skinned tough guy, resembles a campus crybaby who...

    September 10, 2013 HERE THEY COME: Video of 2 Million Bikers group on their way to DC Right Scoop I’m not sure exactly where this is at but clearly DC is in for some fun. And I love how the trooper salutes them with his horns and siren as they ride by. Watch: VIDEO(I'm pretty sure that's a Virginia State Trooper flashing his lights and siren so this is either I-95 or I-64, I guess)

    Has anyone out there bought a bag of Sun Chips lately? The new Frito Lay eco-friendly green bag is really LOOUUUDDDD!!!! I swear it's capable of waking the dead if you so much as breath in its general direction, much less actually touch it or reach inside to get a chip. Anyone who's touched one will know what I'm talking about, since it's very noticeable and unforgettable. I guess the new green strategy is to replace landfill pollution with noise pollution instead?

    Today my sister and I stopped by my Dad's in Ballwin Missouri, a far west suburb of West St. Louis County chatting about life in general and the all the crap being flung about this election season. As we were pulling out of the driveway I yell to my Dad "NOBAMA!!". Unbeknownest to us across the street a Prius with Illinois plates was stopped. As I yelled that, the doors opened and two young black girls (maybe 17 or 18) get out of the car and go to the house next door. Curious, I backed up into my Dad's driveway...

    IN THE SPIRIT of full disclosure, I must state that I come from a long line of accountants and that my sister is a librarian — in other words, quiet types who speak softly and would probably say an electric pencil sharpener it a bit to loud for proper office use. Early on, I realized my family background didn't prepare me for the outside world, where people honk their horns for no apparent reason, mothers yell out the front door when they want their kids to come inside, and the last child who was born to be seen and not...

    Monday night, a record number of noise complaints were received by Residential Security Officers in Roger Revelle College. Officers responding to the calls found the sexual activity of a deaf couple to be the source of the noises, which were described as "cacophonous" by witnesses. The first officer on the scene, Frank Zipelli, reported, "I could hear those two all the way from the parking lot." According to Zipelli, "It sounded as if they were bludgeoning a cow. There would be a low moan, like a ‘moo,’ and then a ‘bang’ and a higher-pitched ‘moo.’ It was like ‘MOO…BANG…MOOO!’" Upon...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts. From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president.

  • Manitoba drivers to stand on one leg, count out loud in roadside drug tests

    WINNIPEG (CP) -- Manitoba drivers suspected of being high on drugs will be asked to perform a specific series of tasks, including standing on one leg while counting out loud, under new regulations approved by the NDP government. "The tests are, by nature, divided attention tests," David Greening, a senior Justice Department policy analyst, said in an interview. "(Police) can determine if a person is impaired by how they perform on the tests." The new regulations stem from amendments to the provincial Highway Traffic Act approved by the legislature last spring which are intended to crack down on motorists who...

    Sakinah Aaron was walking into the bus area at the Wheaton Metro station several weeks ago, talking loudly on her Motorola cell phone. A little too loudly for Officer George Saoutis of the Metro Transit Police. The police officer told Aaron, who is five months pregnant, to lower her voice. She told the officer he had no right to tell her how to speak into her cell phone. Their verbal dispute quickly escalated, and Saoutis grabbed Aaron by the arm and pushed her to the ground. He handcuffed the 23-year-old woman, called for backup and took her to a cell...

    AUGUSTA — Don't blame earthquakes for the rattles and rolls that shook buildings and shook up people in the middle of the afternoon Friday. The definitive word from the National Earthquake Information Center in Boulder, Colo., is that the three shakes and booms were not caused by earthquakes. Bob Lent, district chief for the U.S. Geological Survey, said, "They did not detect anything above background that could indicate an earthquake." Lent, whose office is on Whitten Road, said, "It sounded like a blast to me." While the rumbling began about 2:45 p.m., more incidents were reported later in the evening....

    Pyongyang, February 24 (KCNA) -- The chorus suit "Long trip for army-based leadership" produced by the merited chorus of the Korean People's Army is a revolutionary army song in the era of the army-based policy as it grips the hearts of all the servicemen of the KPA and people, says Rodong Sinmun today in an editorial. It calls for advancing with redoubled courage, singing the song more loudly. It goes on: The vitality of the revolutionary army song representing the idea and politics of Supreme Commander Kim Jong Il was fully demonstrated in the period of the "arduous march," the...

    CORNWALL, Ont. (CP) - Two roommates facing eviction for allegedly praying too loudly in their apartment are trying to convince Ontario's rental- dispute agency to allow them to stay put. Born-again Christians Teresa Tafawa and Derrick Mitchell, and the building's management are now waiting for a verdict after the case went before the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal following repeated complaints by other tenants. "They don't listen to any other authority, except perhaps the authority of God," the building's property manager Richard Pfinder said at the hearing. But Tafawa and Mitchell, who have lived at the apartment for six years, defended...
