An Ol’ Broad’s Ramblings

Partying teens arrested at 101 mph on Bypass

A Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department officer stopped a car full of underage drinkers traveling 101 mph down the Highway 151 Bypass last week.

Brains of mush, damned lucky they don’t have splattered brains!

Gore set to change climate on Hill

Democrats, environmental activists and presidential hopefuls are angling to share the spotlight with former Vice President Al Gore this week as he comes to Capitol Hill to testify on global warming.

Yeah, just what Capitol Hill needs, more hot air!

British Airways Places Dead Passenger in First Class Seat

ā€œIt was a complete mess ā€” they seemed to have no proper plans in place to deal with the situation,ā€ said Trinder, 54, a businessman from Brackley, Northamptonshire.

What were they suppose to do? Toss her out the window?

Senate Republicans want answers on prosecutor firings

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee say the Bush administration needs to be more straightforward about the White House’s role in the dismissals of eight federal prosecutors.

Is it any wonder that Republicans out in the real world are disgusted with the D.C. RINOS (per Pete šŸ™‚Ā  )? It would be real nice if they’d stand up to the Democrats instead of ‘following their lead’ of whining. The sucking up must end!

Polish bill would ban gay talk in school

“Polish authorities claim to be protecting families but in fact they are trying to deny children free speech and lifesaving information on HIV/AIDS,” said Scott Long, director of Human Rights Watch’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights Program. “Schools should be training grounds for tolerance, not bastions of repression and discrimination.”

No, actually, schools should be teaching kids how to read, write, add, subtract, etc. They should also be teaching them ethics, which has been sorely lacking in the last 40 years or so.

Boy Scout missing in N.C. wilderness

No one’s sure why 12-year-old Michael Auberry disappeared from his Boy Scout troop’s campsite in Doughton Park. But two days and two freezing nights later, searchers are desperately trying to find him in the rugged terrain of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

I really pray this kid is found safe and sound!

Hamas shoots Israeli despite truce

“The Qassam Brigades announced its responsibility for shooting a Zionist (Israeli) and firing two mortar bombs against a gathering of Zionist soldiers near Karni crossing,” the statement by Hamas’s armed wing said. “Our strikes against the enemy will continue.”

I guess “truce” just isn’t in their vocabulary.

Family finds bomb, carries it to cops

Haas said the device was small, made with a can with a small metal cap, like a can of glue or cleaner used for working with PVC pipes. A powder that may have been an explosive substance was inside, with a wire leading from the cap area. Nails were secured around the outside of the can, as if to supply shrapnel, with the device held together with rubber radiator hose and clamps.

Not exactly something you usually find just laying around, is it?



  1. Reword that headline to say “RINOs want answers on prosecutor firings” please….

  2. I really hope they find that Boy Scout okay. But, aren’t Boys Scouts taught anymore that if you find yourself lost, hug a tree? Do not keep wandering around. Someone will find you, if you stay put. It was one of the first things I learned camping with the Girl Scouts as a kid.

  3. Pete….done! šŸ™‚

    Ro, I heard on the news this morning the kid has ADAH, or whatever it’s called these days, so it might be kind of hard for him to stay put.
