Crane Collapse in New York City

My niece lives in the 300 block of E. 91st and the crane collapse was at 333 E. 91st. Same damn block! Fortunately, she was out of her apt and on her way to work on the subway when the crane fell!

Of course, she fielded a bunch of phone calls in her classroom from family, etc asking if she was OK.

Bob Dole

I enjoy naked, brutal honesty so I liked this email from Bob Dole to Scott McClellan. Read it - we could use more honesty like this in Washington.

Saying Stuff Like This Is Guaranteed To Get You Votes (Not)

Obama said this today: "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said. "That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.

I don't see this statement as a big vote-getter. Of course, Obama is a DEM and I am not. That means his supporters will claim his statement is chock full of nuance and context that I just am not getting.

One in Four Americans Has A Tattoo

This is according to a Fox News survey. But the Inquirer claimed in a Saturday idiotorial that about one in ten voting-age Americans is unable to get a government ID. And it claimed almost all of these sad sacks are Democrats. Jeez if one in four Americans is dumb enough to get a tattoo, how much dumber must the others be if they can't get an ID.

The Groom left jail alone, sporting a black eye, torn tuxedo pants, a bloody t-shirt and one shoe

What a wedding! This is why, when you get married, it is very important that you wear rented clothes! Don't risk ruining your own hard-earned duds!

Newlyweds jailed after brawl at Pittsburgh-area hotel
Apr 28, 2008

A newlywed couple spent the night in separate jail cells — she in her wedding gown — after police said they brawled with each other, then members of another wedding party, at a suburban Pittsburgh hotel. The fight started Saturday night after a reception when he knocked her to the floor with a karate kick in the seventh-floor hallway of a Holiday Inn — and escalated when she attacked two guests from another wedding party who came to her aid, police said. The melee moved to an elevator and then to the lobby, where the couple threw metal planters at the two good Samaritans, causing minor injuries, police charged. "It was pretty wild," Ross police Sgt. Dave Syska said.

Dentist David W. Wielechowski, 32, of Shaler, and Christa Vattimo, 25, had married a month earlier in the Bahamas but repeated their vows Saturday at a reception for 150 guests. They were checking into their room when the argument began, police said. Police arrived to find the dentist lying on the lobby floor and his bride, seemingly highly intoxicated, screaming. Authorities charged each with simple assault, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct, and the bride with an additional count of public intoxication. They face a May 7 preliminary hearing. A district judge considered issuing a restraining order against Wielechowski, but his new bride declined the measure. The couple declined comment upon their release Sunday morning.
She left with her father, still dressed in her white gown.
Wielechowski left alone, sporting a swollen eye, tuxedo pants, a bloody T-shirt and one shoe.

Barbara Walters Was Sleeping With A What........

Many Americans were shocked and disgusted to learn that MSM pioneer and TV icon Barbara Walters had an affair thirty years ago with a U.S. Senator and he was...........................................................a Republican! The Horror!

President Obama

Ann Coulter is damn funny. I say this is funny no matter what your politics are:

"If it takes Obama 20 years to notice that his pastor is a traitorous, racist nut-job, it will probably take him his full term of office to realize that the U.S. has been invaded and subdued by al-Qaida.

Let's just hope President Obama pays closer attention during national security briefings than he did during 20 years of the Rev. Wright's church services. "
