    Sheeze! Lighten up! Everyone is picking on Big Guy for missing 20 of his 22 shots at the shootout (can I say that?) yesterday. It’s catch and release, BO, release! Some people even cynically suggested that BO shot all those “bricks” on purpose to draw attention to his new gazillion dollar “infrastructure” project to rebuild Amerika.  “Somebody” doesn’t know Big Guy very well if he thinks that’s even a remote possibility. (SNIP) That brick thing reminded me of the movie I watched on Easter though; you may have heard of it: Cecil B. de Mille’s The Ten Commandments? The Pharaoh...

    A Dallas woman says TSA agents repeatedly asked her to step back into a body scanning machine at DFW International Airport. “I feel like I was totally exposed,” said Ellen Terrell, who is a wife and mother. “They wanted a nice good look.” When Ellen Terrell and her husband, Charlie, flew out of DFW Airport several months ago, Terrell says she was surprised by a question a female TSA agent asked her. “She says to me, ‘Do you play tennis?’ And I said, ‘Why?’ She said, ‘You just have such a cute figure.’” Terrell says she walked into the body...

    Marshmallow Peeps, the popular Easter candy made of sugar, corn syrup and gelatin, have become a new symbol of protest in St. Paul these days. The "Vision of Peace," a 36-foot, 60-ton onyx City Hall statue of American Indians, has become the stage for a peculiar form of civil discourse. Since last week's decision to kick the Easter Bunny out of a City Council office, a handful of employees have ringed the statue with the spongy chick- and rabbit-shaped candies. Two laminated signs even announce the statue's temporary new moniker — "Vision of Peeps."

    T here's been a lot of excitement about blogs since they broke into public consciousness during the 2004 election. They are now growing at an astronomical rate. The blog search engine Technorati now tracks almost 20 million of them, and various estimates of the number of blog users range from 32 million to 50 million Americans. Blogophiles see blogs as a new way for citizens to express themselves and, especially among the political bloggers, a new way for citizens to talk back to the "MSM" -- the mainstream media. According to Mike Godwin, legal director of a First Amendment advocacy...
