The State of the World

Shotguns. The only tool with more uses than duct tape.
Nothing better than seeing a story about all hell breaking loose in one's hometown as golfer's at an Amherstburg course were shocked to hear gunshots break out during women's league play.

Turns out the course had employed hunters to cull the troublesome geese population on the course. Instead of using the noisemakers or dogs or other methods used on other courses, Sutton Creek opted to bust some caps in some goose ass.

Best quote? Right here: "It was the day before the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorism attacks and so [golfer Carmen Colledge] was quick to think the worst."

Really? You think Al Qaeda has been plotting for years to take out the women's golf league? Really?

Always look on the bright side of life
The main story on a lot of people's minds are President Bush's announcement of a small troop withdrawal from Iraq [about 6,000 by Christmas] and his attempts to recast the war as a vital security concern, while neglecting to mention the original reasons the war was initiated in the first place [WMDs and planting democracy, natch].

The stark reality for most American politicians is that the conflict will still be here when Bush exits office.

The continued trouble of the female chauvinist pig
It could be argued that the explosion of the so called 'Lad's magazines', your Maxims and Stuffs and so on, are nothing more than monuments of old fashioned sexism that have set male-female relations back a good thirty years.

Indeed, the fact seems so obvious one wonders how there can still be any argument. Yet it persists, argues Decca Aitkenhead in the Guardian, because the debate ignores "women's own complicity in the genre."
Briefly
Dr. Who + Jesus = The best Sunday morning ever.

Florida murder-suicide kills victims, farmland animals.

Damn, Detroit: headless, armless corpse found in garbage can.

Pipe bombs: not the best home security system.

Off to build furniture. Damn Swedes.
