It went something like this: two of my acquaintances are talking on one of their Facebook walls about the daunting task of preparing holiday cards.
Madame Bovary: "After preparing sixty holiday cards, I feel exhausted." (She actually wrote "Christmas cards," but in that this is a multi-denominational/atheistic blog, I decided to sanitize her words for you heathens.)
Barbarella: "Ahh, I actually had to prepare ninety holiday cards, so I'm equally if not more exhausted."

A few weeks ago, Kansas Public Radio ran a story that first aired on Harvest Public Radio. (Please do not snicker at Harvest Public Radio. We have so few nice things in the Great Plains.) The first thing I heard was this: “If you believe in America, this is where you come!” The voice uttering this astonishingly wrong-headed statement came from the lips of Carl DiCapo, a Kansas City octogenarian who is attempting to raise mega cash to save the National Agricultural Hall of Fame in Bonner Springs, Kansas, which is just a few minutes west of Kansas City.
I have nothing against Bonner Springs. It has a really neat outdoor amphitheatre where I saw both Sting and The Monkees, although not at the same time. In the fall, Bonner Springs hosts the annual Renaissance Festival where my seven-year-old can tear into a turkey leg like a feral child raised in a forest during the Middle Ages by SCA members.

Texas will execute Humberto Leal tomorrow for the 1994 rape and murder of a sixteen-year-old girl, despite the federal government and the International Court of Justice’s attempts to postpone the execution.
Humberto Leal, a Mexican citizen who moved to the United States as a child, was never offered consular services during his detainment or trial, a right provided by the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.
US Solicitor General Donald Verrilli stated in a brief filed by the state department on Friday that “The imminent execution of petitioner would place the United States in irreparable breach of its international law obligation… It would have serious repercussions for United States foreign relations, law enforcement and other co-operation with Mexico, and the ability of American citizens travelling abroad to have the benefits of consular assistance in the event of detention”.

I am a very busy lady. I have appointments to keep, shift exchanges at work to track, and even the occasional date. I have to use a calendar because of my awful memory, and it looks like I’m going to have put one more item on my To Do List: Get raped.
We ladies plan for everything else, so it only makes sense for us to also plan for the little inconvenience of having our bodies violated, and be double extra certain we have insurance in the event we get pregnant from the rape and decide to terminate it. At least, that’s the level of planning expected by Kansas Representative Pete DeGraaf ( R )—who also happens to be a man. Read the rest of this entry →

While the White House has been reluctant to formally announce that Seal Team Six was responsible for successfully killing Osama Bin Laden, you know they totally did it.
What Charlie Sheen is to crack-fueled ragers with Los Angeles’ most luxurious party whores, Seal Team Six is to defending the men and women of this country. If Sheen has tiger blood, these guys have crocodile sperm.
That’s why MissLinda and I are proud to announce the off-offshore founding of the Linsanto corporation, the officially trademarked Seal Team Six™ brand name, and our new line of Seal Team Six™-inspired products!
