Blighted Library
by Lee

Ah, there’s nothing like watching the fallout from the Kelo decision.

When Ginny Jenks heard the rumor that City Island Library could be moved off the waterfront spot it’s held for nearly 30 years to make room for condos, she had one response.

“Over my dead body.”

Jenks may not be the only person willing to suffer bodily harm to save the library that sits on 46 acres of valuable public land.

Dozens of other library lovers are banding together to fight the city’s “vision” plan that recommends rezoning City Island—including the library and the county courthouse annex—to allow for condos and retail stores.

“This is my library and I take it as a personal insult that anyone would think of taking it down,” said Jenks, an 82-year-old downtown resident who visits the library often to check out large-print bestsellers. “Before they take my library, they’re going to have to run over me first.”

The controversial idea to replace public facilities on City Island with more profitable projects has popped up many times over the years.

And now the city knows that if they want the land, all they have to do is steal it.  Thanks, Supreme Court liberals!

Dying for Allah
by Lee

Okay, I’ve got another bleg for you.  Iran’s previous president, Khatami, once said something to the effect of that he would be perfectly willing to accept millions of dead Iranians as a consequence of launching a nuclear attack on Israel.  Can anyone find me the exact quote?

Lose Yourself In the Bullets
by Lee

This strikes me as no great lost to the entertainment world.

A prominent member of Detroit’s hip-hop community was killed in a shooting at a Detroit night club early Tuesday morning.

Rapper and producer Proof, whose real name is DeShaun Holton (pictured), was one of two shooting victims at the CCC Club on east Eight Mile Road, near Gratiot Avenue, according to Detroit police.

When police arrived at the scene, the club was empty, Local 4 reported. Both victims had been taken to a hospital, according to police.

Proof was taken to St. John Holy Cross Hospital, and the second victim was taken to St. John Hospital, police said.

Both victims suffered a gunshot wound to the head, police said. Local 4 initially reported the second victim also died but has learned the 35-year-old man remains hospitalized in critical condition at St. John Hospital, according to police. His name was not released.

The rapper is a long-time friend of rap star Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers. Proof appeared in Eminem’s movie “Eight Mile” as Li’l Tic, the station learned.

If this keeps up, eventually rap music will go extinct.  Insh’Allah.

Roll the Bones
by Lee

Just when you thought animal rights activists couldn’t sink any lower

Four British animal rights protesters have admitted plotting to blackmail the owners of a farm that bred guinea pigs for medical research during a fierce six-year campaign, police said Tuesday.

David Hall and Partners who ran the family business at the Darley Oaks Farm in central England, endured abuse, death threats and firebomb attacks during one of the UK’s most sustained harassment campaigns by animal rights groups.

In the worst incident, in October 2004, the grave of Gladys Hammond, mother-in-law of one of the co-owners who had died in 1997 aged 82, was dug up and her remains stolen.

They have never been found.

That’s right, folks.  He breeds FUCKING GUINEA PIGS, so they dug up the corpse of his dead mother.  I say we do all our future scientific testing on incarcerated animal rights activists.

Allah’s Atoms
by Lee

Well, nobody can say that we didn’t warn them.

Iran has enriched uranium for the first time using 164 centrifuges, a major development in its fuel cycle technology, news agencies quoted a former president as saying Tuesday.

The announcement by former President Hashemi Rafsanjani was the first disclosure that Iran had successfully enriched uranium since February, when it began research at its enrichment facility in the town of Natanz.

``Iran has put into operation the first unit of 164 centrifuges, has injected (uranium) gas and has reached industrial production,’’ the Kuwait News Agency quoted Rafsanjani as saying.

``We should expand the work of these machines to achieve a full industrial line. We need dozens of these units (sets of 164 centrifuges) to achieve a uranium enrichment facility,’’ he said.

Enriching uranium to a low level produces fuel for nuclear reactors. To a higher level, it produces the material for a nuclear bomb.

I think the last thing we need to be doing is attacking Iran.  However, given that these people have no interest in any kind of a diplomatic solution, I don’t see like we have too much choice.  Let’s hope that, this time, Bush listens to advice from the Pentagon a hell of a lot more than he did before Iraq.  Unfortunately, I don’t see him doing so.

Ho’ Shoes
by Lee

Viral marketing has gone to a new high or a new low, depending on how you look at it.

The marketing geniuses at Adidas have signed up porn whore Jenna Jameson for a new video podcast that supposedly markets Adidas’ adiColor shoes.

The ad has a scantily-clad Jameson sweating over a spirited session of whack-a-mole. Speaking of whacking, the clip then cuts to a camera exploring Jameson’s splayed-out, oiled-up breasts.

Two not-so-small problems: In the spot, Jameson is wearing spike heels - not the adiColors, and she also suffers from Janet Jackson-esque nip-slippage.

Anyone remember back in the good old days, when you had to be a professional athlete to sell shoes?  Now all you have to do is be willing to take a hot cum load to the face. 

I expect the Tom Cruise Adidas commercials sometime next week.

Bites from the Left
by Lee

Hey, I’ve got a quick bleg for you.  A liberal coworker is convinced that liberals never reduce issues to soundbites.  Prove him wrong.  Here’s some of the examples I’ve come up with so far.

“War for oil”
“Tax cuts for the rich”
“Risky scheme”
“Strategic deployment”
“Big oil”
“Selected not elected”
“A hand up, not a hand out”

Hook a brutha up.  Bonus points for anything to do with helping the poor.

Stiffening His Floppy
by Lee

If you ever wanted a clear example of why it’s important to have an external hard drive and back up your data, here you go.

A Naperville man was freed on bail Thursday after being accused of keeping a computerized collection of child pornography in his home on the city’s south side.

James T. Stovall, 56, of 1501 Applegate Drive in the Villages of West Glen neighborhood, faces trial on seven felony charges of child pornography, Naperville police said Thursday. Arraignment is set for May 8 in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton.

Members of the Police Department’s Internet Crimes Unit began investigating Stovall on Jan. 5, police Sgt. Joel Truemper said in a written statement. Police were contacted that day by the owner of the Naperville franchise of Geeks On Call, a national computer support service provider.

The franchise owner told police a company technician had gone to Stovall’s home that day and brought his computer in for repairs, Truemper said.

The technician, upon examining the computer, found what appeared to be pornographic images of children on it, Truemper said.

Uncertain at first about what to do, a Geeks On Call employee contacted police, Truemper said. The computer was brought to the police station, where members of the department’s Computer Forensic Team “were able to obtain evidence” from it, he said.

Police obtained a warrant and searched Stovall’s home Jan. 6. Truemper said an unspecified number of computer “floppy disks were recovered which had a collection of child pornography on them.”

All he needed was a cheap USB drive and he’d be home indulging in his vile sickness.  Now he’s on his way to PMITA prison, where hopefully he’ll be gang raped in the shower on a repeated basis.

Shut Up and Help
by Lee

As much as it kills me to say this, I think Lucy Liu has a point.

Hollywood actress LUCY LIU has slammed high-profile actors who become overly involved in party politics, claiming it undermines their causes. The CHARLIE’S ANGELS star, who helped raise $400,000 (GBP229,000) on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW for earthquake victims in Pakistan, believes that crusading Hollywood stars lose focus on their real charity goals by taking on too many campaigns. Liu says, “When you are in the public eye you do have the ability to make a difference. “I have my own opinion about party politics, but my main focus is for children. It’s hard not to rattle off my opinions, but if you focus on too much you can’t get anything done. “If you step out, you should step out and talk about one thing, and in my case it’s children.”

Where celebrities go the media go, and if you want to draw attention to a particular cause you can do so just by showing up.  It’s just such a shame that these morons feel compelled to lend their names to worthless political candidates who don’t need it rather than to charitable causes who do.

France Surrenders To France
by Lee

Showing their usual level of fortitude and bravery in the face of opposition, France has surrendered.

French President Jacques Chirac has announced that the new youth employment law that sparked weeks of protests will be scrapped.

He said the First Employment Contract - or CPE - would be replaced by other measures to tackle youth unemployment.

Millions of students and union members have taken to the streets over the last month in protest against the law, with demonstrations often turning violent.

The government had backed the law which made it easier to fire young workers.

The law introduced a new work contract for under-26s allowing a two-year trial period, during which employers could end a contract without explanation.

Here’s the scoop.  France’s unemployment is at about 10%, but the rate among people in their 20s is about twice the average.  One of the reasons is that, because of draconian French labor laws, it is virtually impossible to fire anyone.  As a consequence, employers are reluctant to hire anyone in their 20s because, if they turn out to be a totak jackoff, the employer is stuck with them.  To try and rectify the situation, the French government passed a law saying that employers have a two year window in which to get rid of someone.

And the Frogs went apeshit.  Much like the North African Muslims who will be their overlords in a few years, these students decided to riot to get their way.  And, true to form, the French government caved in.  So these students will get to remain spending their 20s suckling at the ample government teat, the Muslims have learned and important tactical weapon when dealing with the French government, and the Europe’s death spiral begins to pick up speed.

Must May Mo
by Lee

Not satisfied with wanting to use their science classrooms to teach that dinosaurs lived in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve, Kansas is now shunning science in favor of quasi-religious pedagogy.

Should sex education classes stop at “Just say no”? Some members of the Kansas Board of Education think so, and are pushing for a change that would require abstinence-only sex education across the state.

Under a proposal to be considered at the board’s meeting Tuesday in Wichita, districts that teach more than abstinence could risk losing their accreditation.

Supporters of so-called “abstinence until marriage” programs say such programsare the best way to lower teen pregnancy rates and prevent sexually transmitted diseases.

“Abstinence until marriage is the best thing for young people physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually,” said board member Kathy Martin, who proposed the change. “It’s the best thing for society as a whole, and it’s the message that schools absolutely ought to be sending.”

Opponents, meanwhile, say abstinence-only programs are unproven and impractical. Most districts promote abstinence but also give students information on how to protect themselves if they choose to have sex.

“We don’t want our kids to have sex, but unfortunately the reality is that a lot of them are,” said Sandy Hysom, health education teaching specialist for Wichita schools. “Therefore, we have to give them accurate information.”

These people are fucking insane.  Seriously.  Look, I’m all for abstinence education, but only as part of a broad-based health curriculum.  You can do two things, you can try to convince yourself that America can revert back to Ozzie and Harriet, or you can accept that kids are going to fuck, and deal with that reality in the best way possible.  Obviously these morons in Kansas pine for the former.

As we all know, Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign worked wonders in reducing drug use, so there’s every reason to believe that this same approach to teenage sex will have the same results.

Single Female Lawyer
by Lee

Here’s the skinny on America’s most annoying female TV lawyer.

Former “Ally McBeal” star Calista Flockhart has admitted she suffered from anorexia while filming the hit law firm TV comedy.

After years of claiming her skinny figure was due to being “small-boned” the actress has finally revealed grueling work schedules and the stress of finishing the show, which was axed in 2002, made her stop wanting to eat.

At one point her weight plummeted to under 99 pounds.

Flockhart says, “At the time of all that, I was seriously stressed. I was working 15 hour days on the set and then I was dealing with the end of the show, which was basically my life.

“I started under-eating, over-exercising, pushing myself too hard and brutalizing my immune system. I guess I just didn’t find time to eat.

In a related story, Camryn Manheim, former star of The Practice, has admitted she occasionally overeats.

My Little Princess

If you’ve never seen the Princess cartoons by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, give them a look.  They’re vulgar and brilliant.  Make sure you watch them all the way through to the end.

Oh, and they are VERY not safe for work.
