There's a new "State of Denial" post up at Wand of Wonder. This week has been tough for our Hellish Minion...
Lots of food for thought in the news today. This one is pretty cool-
"Russian President Vladimir Putin could run for re-election in next year's presidential vote if he resigns early to get around a ban on serving three consecutive terms, a lobbyist close to the Kremlin has revealed..."
That clever Putey-Pute. You have to believe George and Dik are green with envy at that one.
Students here at the University of Massachusetts are holding a two-day "strike", complete with mass-marches to the UMass President's office, blocking roads, and so on. Now, you are all asking, which issue in today's news has the students so outraged that they are getting up off their bums and marching in the streets? Illegal wars? Microwaving the Planet? An out-of-control Executive Branch that threatens the Consitution? Um... no. They're upset that student fees were hiked again.
Have I mentioned lately how lame and self-centered most college students are these days?
Memo to self: Ask Barry Bonds to take me off his speed dial.
There's a new mutant variant of the Common Cold going around that kills you. Call me crazy, but sometimes I just get the feeling that the Planet is trying to off us all.
In the meantime though, Eva Marie Saint hopes that everyone will try to have a great weekend!
