Updated – Brianna Denison’s Body Found!
It was a pretty long day at work and I have to go back soon so I thought I would just post a bunch of the different headlines I found interesting tonight. Here are a few:
Mother Defends Dog After Attack On Son – A two year old in Australia was bitten on the face by the family dog. The mother has vowed to keep the dog, blaming the attack on the child. Apparently he was pulling the dog’s ears repeatedly after his mother told him not too.
I can relate to this and think it was right for the police to leave it up to the owner. I had this very thing happen to me as a toddler. My grandmother had an old poodle and if there was ever a dog that needed it’s ears pulled, it’s a nasty old poodle. I was told several times to leave the dog alone or I would get bit, I kept pulling it’s ears and I got bit on the side of the head, ending up with butterfly stitches. Sometimes kids have to learn the hard way. I hate that the child in the news story will end up with scars but it doesn’t change anything.
Perhaps the cooks at this Slovenian hospital have been reading some of Velociman’s recent bloggage, leading to Human Tongue ‘Accidentally’ Served Up In Hospital. Damn but that is just nasty. I can barely stomach chicken as it is. That would be sure to put me off of it for life.
Body Parts Found in Eight Bags Along Interstate 80 in northeastern Pennsylvania. Authorities believe that the parts all belong to the same woman whose head was found in one of the bags. As of yet she has not been identified.
Dog the Bounty Hunter Won’t Face Charges in Mexico. I like Dog but don’t watch the show very often due to the fact that I find his wife extremely irritating and too much like 90% of my employees to stand when I’m not at work. Good news for Dog though after he did the right thing by capturing serial rapist Andrew Luster. Maybe Dog and the guys could find Cesar Laurean since the U.S. and Mexican authorities damn sure don’t seem to be having too much luck.
And it goes on. and on. and on. It will never stop. An inquest in the Bahamas is probing the death of Daniel Smith, son of Anna Nicole Smith. So far they don’t think that any foul behavior was involved in his death but if the jury were to find evidence that points to any wrong doing they can recommend criminal charges be brought. It’s weird because I was just watching an episode of Law & Order the other night that was quite obviously based on the deaths of Daniel and Anna Nicole.
Rudy Giuliani is finally dropping out of the race and has endorsed Senator John McCain and John Edwards has dropped out of the Democratic side of things but is not endorsing anyone so far.
Ralph Nader is talking about running again and while I think he is a moron I like what he says about the accusations that he spoiled the 2000 election for Al Gore: “Political bigotry will be the label on anybody who uses the word ‘spoiler,’ he said. “Because ‘spoiler’ means minor candidates are second class citizens. Either we have an equal right to run for election, or we are spoilers for each other trying to get each other’s votes.” You know it dude.
Some Catholics are getting their panties all in a wad over a fitness club ad that shows some nuns sketching a naked man. As someone married in to a Catholic family, lighten the fuck up.
There aren’t any new leads in the Brianna Denison search and the search efforts were somewhat shortened today because of snow and high winds.
Two international search groups have joined the effort to find 19-year-old Brianna Denison. Police believe the college student was abducted by a sexual predator from a friend’s home a week and a half ago.
Global Warming is just kicking ass and taking names. It snowed in Jerusalem today. Check out the pic.

Leadership: “The Lost Bomb” Revisited
Antitool called the other night, and we had a pleasant discussion on a variety of topics: Palestine, work, books, beer, and a revisit of the August nuclear warhead debacle, despite the fact I have the phone personality of an antique
