Wait For It... Wait For It...

So with the plans to close Guantanamo proceeding apace and a facility found to house those who the government deems unreleasable, how long until:

a) some wingnut blogger claims that the weekend jailbreak in the Philippines was just a trial run for a similar attempt to storm whatever American jail we move Gitmo prisoners to?; and

b) some idiot in Congress repeats that claim in a desperate, pathetic display of NIMBY-ism?

Or has a) happened already, and I just missed it?

Caple Goes Rogue

It would be nice if the hypocritical shite Caple points out in regards to Tiger Woods coverage were only true of sports journalism, and not the whole wretched profession.

It would also be nice if I had Tiger Woods' bank account.


The busker this morning at Union Station was dressed like Bob Crachit wearing his Sunday best (complete with dilapidated stovetop hat), and playing Greensleeves on his harp.

Yes, harp. And not as in 'harmonica'.

I Want One

If and when I am a homeowner, I may just get Werner Sobek to design it for me.

This is a better pic of one of his Triple Zero homes. Not to date myself as an old Claremont X-Men fan, but that'd probably be as close as I'll ever get to living in Forge's swanky all-glass-and-hologram-projectors pad.

Onward Christian Soldiers

The DC Archdiocese has declared that if Washington is going to become a new Sodom and legalize same-sex marriage, they're going to cease performing all charitable activities within the city.

The excuse is that the law would require them to extend same-sex benefits to employees.

"If the city requires this, we can't do it," Susan Gibbs, spokeswoman for the archdiocese, said Wednesday. "The city is saying in order to provide social services, you need to be secular. For us, that's really a problem."

I'm sure there will be a big rush of church employees looking to get hitched with their same-sex partners once the law passes...

If politics have become more important to the archdiocese than charity, then they're in the wrong business.
