Post-Xmas War on Terror Blues

Sorry to bum you guys out on the first day back from our glorious holiday feeding ritual, but here’s a little something I spotted on A. Huffington’s Innernette News & Porn Depository that nicely encapsulates the futile and idiotic nature of our nation’s current “War on Terror.” On Christmas Day, a London-educated Nigerian apparently took […]

Americans Resigned to Perpetual War

Not like this should really come as a shock, but what can you do? We’re the home of the Biggie-sized meal, eleven different versions of “CSI,” and baseball stopped being interesting decades ago; why should our stomachs shrink when it comes to something actually exciting, like a war, which at least features explosions?

Then read this story today from the LA Times, about the supposed killing rampage five Blackwater guards went on in Iraq. Or, you know, just search Google News and spend […]

Lunchbox: G.I. who?

Playing in Poop: Boy it got ugly in Southwest Louisville last night. Nearly 200 residents came out to give MSD executive director Bud Schardein an earful.

Liar to rock Louisville

So I fired up FPK this morning just in time to hear James Bickers say, “… be the fifth caller and win tickets to see Colin Powell…” and I had to laugh out loud because I didn’t know Colin Powell was even a musician, let alone on tour. And then I wondered who the warm-up […]
