Um, whatever...Batwoman to Come Out as Lesbian
MILFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The FBI said Tuesday it found no trace of Jimmy Hoffa after digging up a suburban Detroit horse farm in one of the most intensive searches in decades for the former Teamsters boss. The two-week search involved dozens of FBI agents, along with anthropologists, archaeologists, cadaver-sniffing dogs and a demolition crew that took apart a barn.
Not to be cold-hearted or anything, but does anyone really care? Wow, a mobster's body - from 30 some-odd years ago - might be found??? Oh, gosh, that just keeps me up at night!!
Don't'cha just love those productive uses of tax money?...

NEW YORK (AP) - The Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines apologized for disrespecting President Bush during a London concert in 2003. But now, she's taking it back. "I don't feel that way anymore," she told Time magazine for its issue hitting newsstands Monday. "I don't feel he is owed any respect whatsoever."
FBI agents searched the congressional office of Rep. William Jefferson of Louisiana Saturday evening in connection with a public corruption investigation that has already netted two guilty pleas by two associates, authorities said.
The search began at 7:15 p.m. EDT in the Rayburn House Office Building, where Jefferson's office is located, said Debra Weierman, an FBI spokeswoman.
NEW YORK — A FOX News poll finds that a majority of the public supports the National Security Agency intelligence program that collects data on domestic phone calls and analyzes calling patterns, and nearly half think the program is more likely to help catch terrorists than hurt law-abiding Americans.
Dean Misstates Party Platform to Evangelicals, Angers Gay Rights Activists
WASHINGTON — Democratic chairman Howard Dean mischaracterized his party's platform on gay rights in an interview courting evangelicals, then set the record straight Thursday when an advocacy group called him on it.
Dean told Christian Broadcasting Network News that the 2004 Democratic platform declares "marriage is between a man and a woman" — just one of the points he made in reaching out to religious conservatives who are largely hostile to the party.
But the platform does not define marriage that way, and his remarks prompted the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force to return a $5,000 donation from the Democratic National Committee.
ORLANDO, Florida — President Bush suggested Wednesday that he would like to see his family's White House legacy continue, perhaps with his younger brother Jeb as the chief executive.
Yes, our favorite finger-waving, press conference holding Congressman Pelosi is it!
Pelosi wants ethics panel to probe Rep. Jefferson (A Democrat.)
Really, does this lady ever do anything but run around pointing fingers?
If she does, she's surely quiet about it.
And even when playing police on her side - for literally the first time I can remember - she can't help blaming the Republicans and spouting stupid conspiracy "Republicans are all tied together" theories.
Her 'I Must Stand For Justice, Tonto' schtick is getting old, not to mention boring and hypocritical.
Get over it, Nancy.
Soul Patrol! My favorite American Idol is Taylor Hicks. He seems to be one of the most genuine, he's a great performer and singer, a genuine Southerner, and besides, he gives all those who can't dance without looking "like a drunk Dad at a wedding" hope!
(And if you feel like wasting time, play the Taylor dancing game. LOL.)
Now. Time for the meme.
Awhile back, Stevin tagged me and I didn't even see it. So I'll just do it now...
1: Watching American Idol (Hey, that counts, doesn't it?)
2: Listening to my favorite country music.
3: Cooking. (Seriously! But only when my brothers aren't harrassing me about when it'll be done!)
4: Reading a good book.
5: Swimming. (Unless it's done in April, like we did this year. Then it goes into the numbingly painful category...)
7: Singing. (Though the "pleasurable" part is most certainly limited to me and the hard-of-hearing...)
8: Church potluck.
9: Playing with my dog.
10: Eating. Did I mention eating? Good southern food...
And, last but not least, a short story that I hope I don't bore the heck out of you guys with. Yes, it's true, every word. Ever heard the phrase "be careful what you wish for?" Uh huh.
Well, anyway, my church youth group and I went on a nice weekend camping trip up in the woods. (Did I mention woods? Like, hundreds of TALL, STRAIGHT trees above you.)
To jump back a bit, our area has been very, very dry for a long time. No storms all summer and very little rain, if any.
So, anyhow, all our tents were set up in a nice little circle under the TREES that first day when we noticed it was getting cloudy. And windy. And some quiet thunder off in the distance.
Now fast-forward. It was nine o' clock or so and all the girls were squished in one tent doing those productive, mature things girls do when they all get together, and the tent started - how do I describe it? - FLOODING. Yeah, that's good. Airbeds became air rafts, etc.
We had hauled most of our stuff into the the vans, eaten some soggy grilled-cheese sandwiches, awakened our camping neighbors and gotten soaked when the storm passed on over. Considering the other tents were pretty much floating downstream by now, all the girls squished into the one dry girls' tent and tried to sleep.
And THAT'S when the electrical storm came over us. The thunder right over our heads was quite deafening, but I'm pretty sure my tentmates' screaming drowned it out.
When the lighting started shaking hands with the lake we had a sudden enlightenment and decided that nylon tents probably wouldn't help much. The vans were sounding better all the time, especially when the weather radio informed us that a tornado had formed and was moving over our area.
For the record, it's no fun dodging lighting in bare feet and pajamas while running through 3 inches of water.
It's less fun sleeping six to a van and realizing at 3 a.m. that your indoor lights won't go off and yes, that bath house is REALLY far away.
However, we all survived the night, and dried out just fine in the morning. In fact, the weather was so nice, I got a beee-utiful sunburn all over my face and arms.
Oh, well. No one's fault, and still a pretty nice camping trip all in all.
But - a word of warning. If you're ever in a tent that's flooding in the middle of the night... just go to the car.
