About half of 2,000 stolen wedding gowns recovered in Mexico

The gowns, valued at more than $2 million, were discovered last week in a tractor trailer attempting to enter the U.S. at Nogales, officials with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Monday.

How do you steal 2000 wedding dresses, and avoid being noticed? It’s not like something you can stick in your pocket!

Cowboys stadium is ready for seating

On Monday, workers took a big step closer to the stadium’s debut: They installed the first piece of precast riser, sort of a concrete platform for the seats. It marks the start of work on the stadium’s main seating bowl, officials said.

HUMPH! They should be building it IN Dallas! I mean after all, they are the DALLAS Cowboys, NOT the Arlington Cowboys.

Agent gets 6 mos. for ‘craven’ road-rage attack

A disgraced federal agent was sentenced yesterday to six months behind bars for his role in a road-rage duel with a motorcyclist, but not before the judge lashed out at Thomas Porro for his abject cowardice.

Don’t federal agents have to have psyche evaluations every so often?

FdL man accused of holding ax to woman’s throat, threatening to kill her

His girlfriend said she was trying to leave Nelson’s home around 10:30 p.m. Saturday when he became angry with her, took her car keys and would not let her leave, according to the criminal complaint. He chased her around the house, hit her and at one point, threw her to the floor, holding her down with his knees.

He then got an ax and held the sharp end of it to the front and back of her neck, the complaint said. He told her he would kill her or slit her throat.

Umm….$500 cash bond? Released? Who the hell was on the bench?

Republicans Battle Democrats Over Funding U.S. Troops in Iraq, Afghanistan

“Democratic leaders in Congress are bent on using a bill that funds our troops to make a political statement about the war,” Bush told veterans at the American Legion in Fairfax, Va. “They need to do it quickly, get it to my desk so I can veto it. And then Congress can get down to the business of funding our troops without strings and without further delay.”

As far as I’m concerned, Pelosi has lost all credibility, and the Dems would do well to ask her to step down as Speaker, and vote for someone the American people, as a whole, can trust.

160 in Winkler jury pool

Farese had started to ask potential jurors who among them had heard of the case. He stopped and pointed out to one woman that she’d done everything but roll her eyes

“Why don’t you ask who hasn’t heard about it?” the woman suggested, smiling.

I think they’d be hard pressed to find anyone, anywhere, who hasn’t heard about the case of the preacher’s wife accused of first degree murder.

Learning to Live With the Mahdi Army

As part of a nearly eight-week-old plan to temper violence in Baghdad, U.S. forces last month set up a permanent base and resumed security sweeps in the enclave for the first time in three years. Sadr’s black-clad fighters — who battled U.S. forces in the past — have appeared to stand down, even as Sadr publicly condemns the U.S. presence.

Isn’t it way past time to take al-Sadr out?

Olmert to discuss prisoner swap list with cabinet

Ofer Dekel, head of the Israeli negotiating team, will present the list of 450 prisoners, submitted by Egyptian mediators, to the prime minister and the cabinet.

Officials in Jerusalem said that Israel might refuse to release some of the prisoners on the list. The list represents roughly a third of the prisoners the Palestinians want freed as part of a prisoner swap deal.

I can not get my mind around negotiating with a people who want to destroy you. One soldier for 450 prisoners? Something just isn’t right.

Iranians Testing The U.N.

Iran is testing the limits of the U.N. Security Council’s resolve, boasting of a major advance in its nuclear program and announcing that one of its officials visited Moscow after the council specifically banned him from traveling abroad.

U.N.? Resolve? …………………………… ROFLMAO
