Mondays Suck

Someone recommended that a blogger post every day. Well, I don't have time for that. So here is my contribution to the world today.

Mondays Suck.

In related news, Brittany Spears threw up. She claims it was because of a medical condition called pregnancy. Whatever.

In serious news, Newsweek, the magazine of "did you hear, someone may have disrespected a mass produced book of false scripture," showed on its Japanese cover a U. S. flag in the trashcan. A blogger with the site called Riding Sun (a N. Y. born motorcycle enthusiast living in Tokyo - kind of a specialized market I guess) covers this story nicely. To sum up:

It's one thing for Newsweek to actively promote the notion that America is a "dead", "rotting" country overseas. But it's quite another thing indeed to hide those efforts from its American readers. If Newsweek really thinks America is dead, and our flag belongs in the trash, why won't it tell us?

If I were to offer Newsweek a suggestion, it would be this: Any story or cover you're ashamed to un in America probably shouldn't be used in other countries, either.

As they say, read it all, with a discussion of the fact that neither the story nor the photo was played the same way in the U.S. edition.

Howard Dean looked bad on Meet the Press Sunday. Here is a transcript.

Who likes Mondays? I don't know. Preachers I guess.

The paparazi are really letting us down. I fully expected a picture of Britney blowing chunks.

The US is fine, Newsweek on the otter heiny, doesn't look so good.

What is up with spd? He gets a little porn spam in his comments and he doesn't want to talk to any of us anymore?

Good grief! Not even a "heigh-ho" "ho" is sacred anymore?

If only I were techno-geek enough to develop some kind of program that would auto-respond to ALL spam-scum with "my lil frien, Virus". eeeeeevil, I know. [Kkkarl Rove finally got to me]
