DNR seeks quarantine for Winnebago system

Anglers will be banned from transporting live fish away from Lake Winnebago system waters under emergency rules sought today by the state Department of Natural Resources.

Stupid question: Don’t the fish usually dead after you reel ’em in? Why would you want them alive? Put ’em ice, take ’em home, eat ’em. Obviously, I don’t fish.

GOP senator predicts Gonzales will quit

The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee predicted Thursday that the probe of firings of federal prosecutors would lead to the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

The Justice Department, according to veteran Sen. Arlen Specter, can’t properly protect the nation from terrorism or oversee President Bush’s no-warrant eavesdropping program with Gonzales at the helm.

Just because Spector has an R behind his name, does NOT mean he’s a Republican. I honestly don’t know how I feel about Gonzales. With the Dhimmis making such a big to do about nothing, I’m a little leery of whether or not he’s so bad as AG.

New Navy destroyer named for former POW, a Nashville native

One of the U.S. Navy’s new guided missile destroyers is being named after a Nashville native who was a prisoner of war for almost six years in Vietnam.

The U.S.S. William P. Lawrence is an Arleigh Burke class destroyer, with an advanced Aegis weapons control system, a large phased-array radar and powered by gas turbines.

Having a ship named after you is kind of cool. It’s just a shame he had to go through hell to be so honored.

Man in Houston Taliban case gets 10 months

Shiraz Syed Qazi, 26, one of four Muslim men charged in the so-called Houston Taliban case, was sentenced today to 10 months in prison.

The men were arrested in November and accused of training to join the Taliban’s fight against U.S.-led forces overseas.

That’s it????? Ten months????? What is wrong with this picture!

America-Iran Talks to Begin May 28

U.S.-Iranian talks about Iraq’s security will begin on May 28, Iran’s foreign minister said today, keeping up Tehran’s call for foreign troops to leave Iraq.

Manouchehr Mottaki said the negotiations would be exclusively about Iraq and that a first meeting in the presence of Iraqi officials would try to set a more detailed agenda.

Let’s just go ahead and invite the fox into the hen house.

New fertility laws say dads not needed to make babies

The move, which is part of a shake-up of laws on the use of human tissues, will also allow the creation of ” Frankenstein” embryos – human and animal cells mixed together – for medical research.

Under current laws, fertility clinics have to consider the baby’s need for a father before providing treatment. But today’s draft Human Tissue and Embryos Bill says this is no longer necessary.

I hate to be the one to break it to them, but there is ALWAYS the need for a ‘dad’. How do they think the egg gets fertilized….psychically? I also have to ask what the purpose is of mixing human and animal cells? Visions of “The Island of Dr. Moreau” comes to mind.  Not good!
