    So I took the kids out to the mall to shop for Mom two days before Christmas. I want them to know that Christmas is not just about receiving but giving as well. Now let me ask a weird hypothetical. If I showed up at the Mall wearing only briefs and say my wife showed up in a minuscule bra and panties we'd likely be dragged from the premises and arrested. And rightly so, especially if you've seen me in briefs. But no matter what, it's bad, right? So why is it OK for some of these stores to have...

    MILWAUKEE - The first ballot that Kimberly Prude cast landed her in prison for two years. "At this point, I'm not interested in voting," said Prude, 43, who is serving her sentence for voter fraud at the Robert E. Ellsworth Correctional Center in Racine County. It's a big change from 2004, when she volunteered for Democrat John Kerry's presidential campaign. One of her tasks was calling people to tell them how they could vote.

    Man wins divorce from wife 'too shy' to sleep with him DPA, TAIPEI Monday, Feb 12, 2007, Page 2 A Tainan court has granted a man's request for divorce because his wife was "too shy" to consummate their marriage, a newspaper said yesterday.

    TORONTO (CP) - The hit feature Shrek 2 joins the ranks of animated films to be "outed" by some Christian fundamentalists in the U.S., who charge that cross-dressing and transgender themes have made their way into the beloved kids' movie and warn parents to beware. Although many people see the Oscar-nominated film as a humorous story about a green ogre and his true love, the Traditional Values Coalition has a different take on the animated feature. "Shrek 2 is billed as harmless entertainment but contains subtle sexual messages," the coalition says on its website of the movie, a popular DVD...

    I can only imagine that the post-convention theme will be just as inane. Perhaps "The Future: It's Where We're Headed"? Of course none of this Madisonian (as in Madison Avenue, Lord knows not James Madison) public relations stuff much jibes with the programs these Johns (take the reference any way that strikes your fancy) propose. Take, for instance, raising the minimum wage.
