Report: Serial Killers Cleared by Iranian Supreme Court as Victims’ Activities Were Un-Islamic

At least 18 people were killed on the murder spree, but the men were only tried for five of the deaths. Some of the victims were stoned, others were suffocated and at least one man was buried alive, according to the vigilantes’ confessions.

Go ahead, Nan. Go have a chat with the paragons of civility!

Mount Pleasant officer charged with assault

A Mount Pleasant crime prevention officer has been charged with assault with intent to kill after police say he pointed a gun at a woman and demanded she have an abortion.

‘Crime prevention officer’? I don’t bloomin’ think so! How about charging him with attempted murder too!

Columbia families received $26.6 million settlement

NASA paid $26.6 million to family members of the astronauts who died on the space shuttle Columbia in 2003, a newspaper reported today, citing recently released documents.

No offense, but….why?

War protesters dump dye into river

The hourlong protest, held by Citizens for Peace and a Rational Energy Policy, concluded with demonstrators dumping three pounds of vegetable-based red dye into the Willamette River “to represent the blood our brothers and sisters are losing every day in Iraq,” said Joe Keating, the event’s organizer.

I’d have to say these peaceful anti-war types are rather destructive, aren’t they.

‘Clean’ War Bill Will Pass, Cheney Says

“I think the Congress will pass clean legislation,” Cheney said during a taped interview broadcast yesterday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” If Democrats do not have the votes to override Bush’s veto, “they will not leave the troops in the field without the resources they need to be able to carry out their mission.”

I NO faith in the Dems to do the right thing.

Northwest Pilot Nabbed With Suspected Cocaine After Border Chase

A Northwest Airlines pilot made a U-turn at a U.S.-Canada border crossing, then led deputies on a chase in his Hummer before being subdued and found to be holding cocaine, a sheriff’s officer said Sunday.

One more reason not to fly Northwest. Ya never know if the pilot is going to drunk, or on drugs.

Israeli-Syrian conflict can be resolved in 35 minutes, Clinton says

Former US president Bill Clinton said that peace between Israel and Syria could be achieved within 35 minutes, if Iran would stay out of the matter.

Eight are hurt in gunfire Friday, Saturday

Five Milwaukeeans suffered gunshot wounds on Saturday, including an 18-year-old man who was critically injured, police said.

Nope, no problems at all, eh Chief?

American radio icon Don Imus disgraced, fired after threat to reveal 9/11 secrets

In a clear sign of its intent to reign in dissident American media personalities, and their growing influence in American culture, US War Leaders this past week launched an unprecedented attack upon one of their most politically ‘connected’, and legendary, radio hosts named Don Imus after his threats to release information relating to the September 11, 2001 attacks upon that country.

Ya gotta give the Russians credit for creativity. LMAO

East Coast Storm Nixes Over 400 Flights

A powerful nor’easter pounded the East with wind and pouring rain Sunday, grounding airlines and threatening to create some of the worst coastal flooding some areas had seen in more than a decade.

I’d say everyone is having a fairly nasty spring.

  1. I love the Pravda story. Because Russian/Soviet politics is so byzantine, ours must be to. No, really, we would fire someone in this country for saying “nappy-headed ho’s” not for revealing government secrets (just ask the NY Times). No big government plot, just someone decided things had gone too far — but not too far with the record companies YET.
