Pooja will get two out of three of her wishes

Miss India Earth 2007 Pooja Chitgopekar, 22, holds a placard

Well, if you can judge by appearances, I am certain that Pooja will get the latter two of her wishes. Plenty.

Santa Fe Voted Worst Food By Travel And Leisure

Santa Fe voted worst girlfriends by Ashley.

Just to clarify for all the gringos. When you buy or patronize something with the words “Santa Fe Style” involved, you are being suckered to pay a premium for a bastard version of Cali-Mex that has nothing to do with the heritage of Northern New Mexico.

Dick Armitage giving too much information

Armitage says he was foolish in CIA leak

Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage said Sunday he was foolish to have revealed Valerie Plame’s CIA identity. Pete Yost, Associated Press

Probably also a mistake to discuss his penis size with reporters in the room.

Report Puts Hidden War Costs at $1.6T

That “T” is short for “totally fucking ridiculous.” Here is what it glosses–

$1,600,000,000,000

U.S. sets record in sexual disease cases

More than 1 million cases of chlamydia were reported in the United States last year — the most ever reported for a sexually transmitted disease, federal health officials said Tuesday. AP

Hmmm… 2002-2007 being the period of ever increasing VD. I knew George Bush could be blamed for a lot of things. Not really surprised to see he causes the clap too.1

Judge loses more than pants in lawsuit

You know the story. Judge sued for $54,000,000 for lost pants which were actually returned to him and plenty of other solid customer service happened too. When I saw he lost his job I was really jazzed for a minute.

Then I started thinking about it and realized that the bastard probably has mental problems. I think many, many people who appear to function, even in high level positions like judge, are actually pretty messed up in the head and barely get by or get by with a lot of help and excuses. Then you’ll notice that merely being a little crazy can get you dominating a soft news cycle. Then you’ll notice that without consumers of soft news cycles this wouldn’t really be much of a problem. Then you’ll notice your reflection starts to get a little harder to bear.

1 Not actually kidding. The enforced instruction in abstinence for which he and other Republican pinheads are lately responsible is almost certainly at the root of the rise. Young people are going to have sex. End of story. Making sure they don’t know how to do it without getting hurt should be criminal.

You've ruined my peace of mind. I did, and now I can get the sound of "chicken pepper, chicken pepper" out of my head.

Better still, everyone thinks you’re crazy because they didn’t read that. :)

I've lost the ability to write properly too. I meant to write "can't".

You've destroyed me. Even squirrel porn can't salvage my shattered psyche.

You should’ve just told me and I’d’ve fixed it. I stand up to help anyone. Anyone who is exactly like me in race, politics, income, religion, dog v cat, and so on. It’s only the pwogs I let retain their misspellings.

Too late! Alack, alas and boo hoo hoo! My misery knows only the limit of a brain turning slowly to pwog pudding. The "chicken pepper" glossolalia is a terrible fate.

Fortunately, we live in a world in which the puddingification of brains is not ironclad destiny. The Relucant Anarchist is a fascinating personal story.
