    When did the scottish turn into pussies? Apparently four men performed a home invasion, armed with guns. The VICTIM grabbed a sword, stabbed one of them, who later died. The remaining three were later charged with robbery and firearm offences, but the victim was sentenced with manslaughter and jailed for eight years. Just remember, next time you are robbed in Scotland, don’t bother to defend yourself, run away screaming like a little girl or the justice system will have your ass.

    She came out of her deep sleep very slowly. It seemed to take ages. She stretched and yawned, shook the sleep out of her bones. She pawed her hooves on the rock floor of her cave, gave a whinny as if to call the others. She looked around the dark cave trying to see if anyone had been there. Her silver horn gave off enough light to just see the walls around her. No one had disturbed her with their presence in hundreds of her years.

    Then she recalled what had prompted the deep sleep in the first place. She was the last of her kind. She had hidden herself away in the cave deep within the ancient forest until a better time came, when she could emerge, and possibly find another to help her make a child. What then had awoken her from the deep slumber? Perhaps the time had come to look around. Things could have changed. Maybe the humans were gone now, or had become less warlike, with their fierce swords and bows, clubs and fire.

    She walked for a long time, picking her way through the rocks and debris in the anciant cavern. Streaks of gold in the walls glittered back as they picked up the light from her horn. At some point she crossed a small underground stream, stopping for a long draught. Little sightless fish scattered as she dipped her head. She lifted her head as she felt a breeze in her mane. Close to the surface now.

    She galloped quickly as the cave widened out, became less sloped. She started to see a bit out light up ahead. She could see the mouth of the cave. She slowed as she got closer. The smells were different. Bad. Diseased. As if something was dying. As she emerged from the cave she was shocked. Most of the ancient forest was gone. There were trees, mostly new growth, less than a hundred years old. She could see the river several leagues away, and long ribbons of rock through the forest. And the noise. It was deafening. In the sky, and in the ground. Everything vibrated with it.

    She gingerly picked her way down the face of the mountain she had emerged from. She was having trouble hearing the forest with all of the distraction. She could not tell one smell from the other. She noticed that she was trembling from fear, and forced herself to stop. She went in the direction of the river. It was slow going, as she stopped every couple of minutes to lift her head and listen.

    She emerged at the riverbank, and stooped to take a drink. A loud noise, as if from an avalache, startled her, and she felt a great pain in her side, then another in her head. She slowly toppled over, crying out. Blood ran out of the wounds. The light from her horn went out as it dissapeared from view. As she lay dying in the light of the afternoon sun, she decided that maybe things had not changed after all.

    Footsteps crashed through the underbrush, Then stopped. “Goddammit”, said the human in the bright orange clothing, “I could have sworn it was a three-pointer. Just another fucking horse”.

    Looks like John Kerry has all but sewn up the Democratic Presidential Nomination. One thing seems to be missing though. No endorsement from either of the Clintons, who seem to hate missing any of the limelight for more than five minutes. Perhaps that is because they don’t want the Democrats to win in 2004. That would make it extremely difficult for Hillary to get the 2008 nomination, against a sitting Democrat. There are still four more months to go until a vote is cast at the Democratic Convention, and I believe that in that time, Kerry will do something stupid, or something else along the lines of the intern story will come out to fry him, leaving noone viable to take the nomination…unless Hillary Clinton steps in, which is what I predict may happen. Four years earlier than she plans, but President Bush would have a much harder time beating her than he will Kerry.

    Damn, can’t the guy keep his nose out of anything?

    Jean-Bertrand Aristide said in a telephone interview Monday that he was “forced to leave” Haiti by U.S. military forces who said they would “start shooting and killing” if he refused. Aristide was put in contact with The Associated Press by the Rev. Jesse Jackson following a news conference, where the civil rights leader called on Congress to investigate Aristide’s ouster.

    I upgraded my cell phone last week to an LG vx6000. Very cool toy. PLaying with the camera, I took these:

    Ruth                 Anna

    Now if I could just figure out how to post directly from my phone instead of emailing them to myself, that would kick ass.

    Lord of the Rings received 11 Oscar nominations. Makes up for the lack the last couple of years. I saw The Retrun of the King right after it was released, saw the other two on the day’s that they came out. All three were great. Peter Jackson did a great job on a classic trilogy. I did have a few issues with them, particularly the ending of the last. Anyone who thinks that it dragged on and on and on (it did), has obviously never read the books, as the ending actually dragged on even longer, hehe.
    Overall though, they were great. I will be sure to get the directors cut DVD trilogy once it is released.

    The government is getting ready to spend even more fucking money on the war on drugs, this time targetting prescription drugs, and how easy they are to get. Sooner or later this is going to self-destruct before they get a clue that prohibition does not work.

    CNN.com – Bush policy to target prescription drugs – Mar. 1, 2004
    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Bush’s national anti-drug strategy will for the first time target the use of pain relievers, sedatives and stimulants for nonmedical purposes, a problem that has exploded in the last decade.

    I am still not sure how I feel about this one. I don’t know enough about Haiti as I would like. I do know that the level of poverty in Haiti sucks and that Aristide has not been able to do anything about it, so this may be what is needed for the people there.
    Apparently the leader of the rebel forces has pledged to support the interim President and to support the democratic process there.
    Another wrinkle to this story is that U.S. Marines supposedly “kidnapped” President Aristide and flew him out of the country. If so, that was probably the best thing for him, as he would be barbecue by now.

    CNN.com
    Greeted by hundreds of cheering supporters, heavily armed Haitian rebels drove into Port-au-Prince today, entering the headquarters of the national police, the stronghold of supporters of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Aristide left Haiti Sunday and is in Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic.
