Undangerous weapons?

Um, if they're not dangerous, they're not weapons. Right?

a real issue

A recent Time magazine article about VP hopeful Sarah Palin reports that when she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, she tried to ban books. It reads, in part:

Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. "She asked the library how she could go about banning books," [former mayor John Stein] says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them.

Forget the baby mama drama. This is a very real reason not to vote her into higher office.



My doorbell dinged at 4:00 this morning, and I never really went all the way back to sleep. I knew there was no one at the door; the damn bell had malfunctioned a couple times the previous afternoon. Humidity? Poltergeist? Bored Republicans? Whatever. None of that mattered when it chimed again at 5:00 a.m., and again at 6:00 a.m. So I'm on my way down the hall (at the U) to get a coke.

I had a dream in the wee hours of the dawn, between dings, that when I went to see who was at my door, I discovered that several animals had made their way into my house, including half a dozen cats, a Newfoundland hound, and several migrating Canada geese.

knocked up

Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol is 17, unmarried, and knocked up. That's probably not the kind of bump the conservative candidates were looking for, eh?
