In the news:
Dog takes revenge on hunter for making the dog jump into cold water to retrieve dead ducks. Dog also had complained numerous times of chipping his teeth on shotgun pellets lodged in said dead ducks. Expect the NRA to issue a statement defending the dog's Second Amendment rights.
At times, one must simply sit back and enjoy irony at its finest. A former National Sheriff of the Year is locked up in the jail named after him. The charge is offering meth for sex.
The list of most popular baby names of 2011 is out. "Sophia" tops the girls's list. If you're my age, the first "Sophia" you think of is Sophia Loren. The younger generation might come up with Sophia Vergara. Either way, parents, that's putting a lot of glamor pressure on your daughter. "Aiden" leads the boys' names. Really, parents? Why? The # 2 boys' name is "Jackson." Again, why? It's one thing if the kid's name is Jackson Pollock, cause that has an innate cool flow. If the kid is now Jackson Findernickerbenden, he's S.O.L. My given name didn't make the list, though it's an old, historic name. Which overall I like, because I like having a relatively little-used name. BUT. Boys' name # 92 - "Jace." WTF? Jace? I know I'm old and out of touch, but where the hell did that name come from?
Newt Gingrich -- still a lying sack of shit.
Speaking of sacks of shit, the Gulnare Freewill Baptist Church located in some backwater of Kentucky voted to ban interracial couples from membership in the church. It's like what Jesus asked his mother before the Wedding at Cana, "The bride looks like a fucking Hittite. Is she a fucking Hittite?"
The glimmer of hope -- Elizabeth Warren leads Scott Brown 43%-39% in this just released poll. With the margin of error, the results are a statistical tie. Grab the hope where you can find it.
