Buried In Junk Mail

Tuesday, April 17th, 2007

I get a lot of junk mail. Almost 140 pieces last month alone. I thought spam was supposed to get rid of junk mail. Instead, I also get about 350 pieces of e-mail spam a month in addition to the junk mail I get in my physical box. Most of ...

Monday, April 9th, 2007

Over the past 30 years, administrations of both parties have squandered golden chances to forge a coherent energy policy. Though the problem had built for years, it reached a big juicy zit in 1973 when OPEC closed the taps and Americans started buying over-priced gasoline on odd or even days. ...

Did Katie Bar the Civility?

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

Until she was anointed America's first solo female network news anchor (how's that for a string of qualifiers), Katie Couric was mostly known for her freakish 10,000 watt smile and hosting cooking sessions on the Today show.

A bigger, but much less ...

Creationism v. Evolution, You’re Both Right

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

Hi kids, this is God again. I know some of you expect me to speak through priests or Pat Robertson, but I don't trust those guys. They're always cooking up some kookie shit to make a buck. I know some of you expect me to communicate a little more formally - ...

What Did The President Know, And When Did He Know It

Tuesday, March 13th, 2007

Richard Nixon, it seems, has posthumously moved up the rankings of presidential success stories. He's not at the bottom of the list anymore. Oh, I know that the history books haven't yet caught up to this reality, but they will. I mean really, how could they not? As his prideful house ...

On a February afternoon on the lonely Texas/Mexico border, two border patrol agents fired 15 times on an unarmed marijuana smuggler as he ran for his life. The two agents then attempted to cover up what had happened. Hit in the buttocks, the smuggler limped back home to ...

Why Does The President Hate Our Troops?
