Oh, well

ESPN.com – NCB – College Basketball Game Update

It just wasn’t to be. UConn is really good, and we needed some breaks we didn’t get. It was a great run — and maybe it will lead to more.

CNN.com – Psychic tip prompts bomb search on plane – Mar 27, 2004

What kind of dumbass cancels a flight because a “psychic” claims there’s a bomb on the plane?

The purported psychic’s call was “unusual,” conceded Doug Perkins, local administrator for the federal Transportation Security Administration director.

“But in these times, we can’t ignore anything. We want to take the appropriate measures,” he said.

Hey, maybe every flight should be preceded by a ouija board session! And we can have on-board astrologers! Sacrifice a sheep and read its entrails, then have mutton as the in-flight meal!

Newly appointed Alabama Attorney General Troy King repeats (in a written statement) that he still holds the homophobic views he espoused in a series of editorials in the University of Alabama student newspaper in the early nineties. The only thing he recants is his statements that AIDS only spreads through gay sex, saying that “it has since been learned that AIDS spreads in other ways”. In other words, he’s a total moron who didn’t know this in 1991.
