At lunch, I got a chance to browse the online news. Passing these stories on to you is value added!
“Friends, not family, are the key to a longer life, a new study suggests.”
You heard right. Poeple who had close contact with friends lived longer. So, let’s party.
“Information technology workers and financial workers are more likely than other occupation groups to be eligible for bonuses, according to a study released Wednesday from staffing firm Hudson.”
Um, what’s this
bonus of which you speak?
“Bush critics say it shows he lied to Americans about Iraq, but others say memo offers nothing new.”
“I say it shows he lied to Americans about Iraq, AND that’s nothing new.”
Dell sez: “If Apple decides to open the Mac OS to others, we would be happy to offer it to our customers,” he said in an e-mail to the publication.”
Can you feel the outpouring of MacOS love? Who knew we would live this long?
Tom Crui… aw, hell, nevermind.
“Adding a dash of rosemary extract to ground beef appears to reduce the amount of cancer-causing compounds created during the cooking process, according to new study findings.”
Plus, rosemary is delicious. Saturday’s dinner: grilled steak tips, y’all.
“President George W. Bush’s job approval rating is now just 42 percent, and most Americans think he does not share their priorities.”
What, you mean most people don’t think that corruption, greed and lying are their priorities? What are these people thinking? I was forced to watch Fox News this morning and I saw them reporting that Hillary is polling just as favorable as Bush is these days (different poll from the job approval, this one showed both public figures at 52% favorable)
“A botched robbery of an armored car at high noon yesterday in Boston’s North End ended with dozens of
FBI agents and heavily armed State Police troopers surrounding a three-decker in Malden”

Re: Bush's lies
Yeah, well, of course he lied but thanks to you hellbound Libs we'll not likely get to the bottom of it.
The most brilliant defensive strategy of the Clinton Administration (in the heady days of Dem congrssional control and beyond) was to say "nothing's been proven, let's move on" whenever a new charge was brought to the fore.
Well, of course, nothing's been proven because nothing's been
So the administration's front men can saturate the airwaves with "there's never been any proof that the president lied" and Mr and Mrs America nod somnolently and switch over to E to see which costar L'il Tommy Cruise is marrying this week.
You mean like Whitewater and Lewinsky? I think those got investigated a bit.
What Julie said.
I'll take Clinton being investigated for Whitewater and Lewinsky any day over the horrific travesty we call American leadership today.
Sorry, but this story is now my all-time favorite. I heard this on NPR on my way to work today:
CIA Director Porter Goss says he has "an excellent idea" where Osama bin Laden is, but...we can't just barge in and get him, we have to respect the sovereignty of foreign nations.
HA HA HA HA HA!!!! Oh...boy...whew. That one was a gut buster.
My first thought was, "Oh? Since when have we done that?" and a picture of Manuel Noriega popped into my head, followed closely by Saddam Husssein.
Oh, is THAT the new excuse? I heard that we couldn't do it because there are some areas in our anti-terror infrastructure that need to be shored up first.
No, no, it's all about respect with this administration .
(You should've seen the milk come out my nose after
No no no no.
You've all got it all wrong.
We have Osama behind bars already. I know it's true because that what the picture says on this freeper page:
I Love Gitmo
Is that like loving the Alamo?
David Stewart, the Alamo's director, says he hears the Pee Wee question all the time, and that by now he can tell when someone is about to bring it up again.
"They get this little smile on their face and say 'You know what I'm going to ask,'" he said. "And I always say, 'No, we don't have a basement.'"
Both excuses are "correct." In order to catch Osama, we must address the weak links, among which are "sactuaries" within so-called sovereign nations. As President Dumbass has explained in the past, a sovereign nation is a nation that's sovereign. I hope this clears up any confusion.
I think we're all missing who the real enemy is here.
Not fatty foods? I'm so confused.
