Bush warns Dems to take offer in firings

A defiant President Bush warned Democrats Tuesday to accept his offer to have top aides speak about the firings of federal prosecutors only privately and not under oath, or risk a constitutional showdown from which he would not back down.

Is it possible that President Bush is finally growing a spine? (see Flopping Aces)

Cowboys to honor ‘Crazy Ray’
No. 1 fan will be remembered in stadium he loved

Dallas Cowboys officials announced Tuesday that they will host a public memorial for their No. 1 fan and mascot – Wilford “Crazy Ray” Jones – on Saturday at the stadium.

I’m really glad to hear they will be honoring him. He was always a hoot to watch, at the games and on TV. He made a bad game fun to watch.

Capitol Hill tax debate could yield additional ‘tax holidays’ for TN shoppers

Tennessee shoppers could see more tax-free trips to the mall and supermarket as a result of the fight on Capitol Hill to reduce the food tax, some lawmakers said today.

Uh huh. What’s the catch?

Cost-cutting, lax oversight blamed for deadly BP blast

While hourly operators working on the doomed unit made critical mistakes, the deeper, root cause of the blast was management’s lack of commitment to safety, largely evident through years of drastic cost-cutting at the refinery while turning a blind eye to repeated warning signs that a catastrophic event loomed, investigators with the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board said.

Heads are going to roll, as well they should.

La. Governor Announces That She Won’t Seek Reelection

“I am choosing to do what is best for my state,” Blanco said. “I will focus my time and energy for the next nine months on the people’s work, not politics.”

If she wanted to do what was right for the state, why didn’t she step down a long time ago. What are the odds a Republican will get elected? ……… (cue hysterical laughter)

Teen reported for sex attack on dog

A teenager in eastern Sweden has been reported to the police for having sex with a dog in his friend’s bathroom.

The alleged incident happened in Norrköping last Thursday. The man is said to have suddenly taken his friend’s dog, a mongrel bitch, into his bathroom and sexually attacked it, local paper Folkbladet reports. He allegedly gave no warning of what he was about to do.

Can we say sick, demented, son of a bitch?

St. Paul third-grader caught with pot at school

A St. Paul third-grader was suspended Monday after he was found at school with a small bag of marijuana.

Police were called to the school in the 500 block of Concordia Ave. just before noon when a school official learned from another student that the boy had been showing the pot to his friends, according to a police report.

What?? You mean they didn’t slap the cuffs on him, and haul him off to the slammer? Isn’t that what they do to kids who pinch a hinder, or hug a teacher?
