Dressing Slutty for Halloween
"I've got to tell my girl no, too. I'm concerned and so are my friends. All these girls want is to dress like sluts."
So powerful is the parental need to retain little-girl innocence, at least for a while, that many people are happy to allow their daughters to wear gory and scary costumes instead of sexy ones.

"She wants to be the Bride of Chucky," Lisa Barilaro of Center City says of daughter Taylor, 6.

"I tried to talk her out of it, but I couldn't. I thought at first it was too scary, but then I was more worried she'd find a costume that was provocative. Scary is better."

I completely stole this, but it was funny.

The Comments of Gen. Sanchez That Went Unreported
In his speech to the Military Reporters and Editors Association in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Sanchez accused reporters of "unscrupulous reporting, solely focused on supporting an agenda and preconceived notions of the U.S. military."

Without naming a specific company, Sanchez said "parent media organizations" have political agendas that direct the news coverage of the war and in some cases put U.S. service members in deadly situations.

"What is clear to me is that you are perpetuating the corrosive partisan politics that is destroying our country and killing our service members who are at war. My assessment is that your profession, to some, has strayed from these ethical standards and allowed external agendas to manipulate what the American public sees on TV, reads in newspapers and what they see on the Web," Sanchez said.

Ironic, considering the comments were left out confirm the problem he was talking about.

Gen. Sanchez apparently ripped everyone. Those are usually good speeches.

Hurricane Forecasting Pioneer Blasts Man-made Global Warming
Dr William Gray, a pioneer in the science of seasonal hurricane forecasts, told a packed lecture hall at the University of North Carolina that humans were not responsible for the warming of the earth.
"The human impact on the atmosphere is simply too small to have a major effect on global temperatures," Dr Gray said.

He said his beliefs had made him an outsider in popular science.

"It bothers me that my fellow scientists are not speaking out against something they know is wrong," he said. "But they also know that they'd never get any grants if they spoke out. I don't care about grants."


Universal's Care Filthy Failure
Despite the growing evidence that socialist medicine is a disaster, its supporters blindly continue to push for a government system in the U.S. They need some down time in a hospital bed in south-central England.

The British system, which, along with Canada's, supposedly is the model we should follow, is no panacea. It is, in fact, a mess.

A Los Angeles Times story on Friday described a system so rotten that in some hospitals "patients allegedly were forced to defecate in their beds and wait for hours for clean sheets."

The story focuses on the struggle in British hospitals to contain the growth of deadly hospital infections that are in large part bred by unsanitary conditions.
