So, I guess after he killed himself, Hunter Thompson's family and friends gathered around him and had a few drinks in his honor. Kind of like a wake, I guess, only without the bother of cleaning up the corpse. Much as I admired his life and writing, that's just creepy.

Tom Tomorrow hit the nail pretty flush here. I can't help wondering if the fact that fake journalist "Jeff Gannon" being a gay prostitute (allegedly) was seen as a bonus to whomever set this whole thing up in the first place. I mean, this is a tailor made way to deflect any criticism over the issue, and gives the right a chance to label the left as hypocrites, something they generally line up to do. Paranoid? Maybe, but I'm also right.

Not the life sentence folks were hoping for, but he's going away for at least seven years (assuming they let him out after he serves two thirds), and ten years of probation after that. All my inner dialogues about the death penalty aside, it's a shame that you can't execute someone for ruining a child's life.

...and that's none of your damn business. First Spring Training game is just over two weeks away.
No, the other thing has nothing at all to do with hockey, although goalie pads do present a unique kind of challenge.

No, seriously, that's not the setup for a joke. I really need to know. It's been a while since I've bought a Valentine's gift for ANY woman, never mind one who believes in the Trickle-down theory. And don't give me the whole "Valentine's Day is a made up holiday blah blah blah..." crap. She's a Republican, they're the ones who made it up in the first place.

PAX TV has a news series called "Young Blades." Am I crazy, or isn't that a slang term for a teenage male prostitute? And here I thought PAX was the non-denominational, wholesome family values channel.
I can laugh silently to myself while she changes the channel on the President in disgust.

You know, there's really no length some people will not go to to get their picture in the paper. The Boston Globe's web presence is only too happy to oblige. Okay, a couple of these folks might be able to make a case, but the William Shatner guy? Pathetic.

Go here. At the risk of being cast among the tinfoil hat crowd: If this is an indication of just how far the Bush Administration is willing to go to make sure only their message gets out, I can't imagine what it's going to be like in four years.
And yes, I did see the part where the Clinton admin did the same thing from time to time. Screw them too.
Will someone please tell me who the hell Ward Churchill is, and why he's the new spokeman for the Left? I mean, I guess he is, that's what Rush and O'Reilly and Hannity keep telling me. I'm just saying, I'd like my spokespeople to, once in a while, you know, introduce themselves to me.

They're going to sanitize the Soprano's. Can I make a prediction now? Big ratings up front, lot's of people jumping off the wagon soon thereafter. Seriously, how can you have a nice, clean version of the Soprano's, after the great, nasty, dirty version that's been on HBO all these years? You can't, it's just not right. The folks at A&E, who we know have never gotten over the loss of Law & Order, should be slapped in the face for about six hours straight for even considering this.
