The edition was late today because I live in Costa Rica. Pura Vida. I was able to get a ride into Santa Cruz to buy my bus ticket to San Jose for my medical treatment on Monday. I wanted to buy a round trip ticket but was unable to. I found out that I must buy my return ticket at the bus station in San Jose. The Costa Rican people have the patience of Job.

Former New York City police Commissioner Bernard Kerik,
who has been free for months since pleading guilty to eight felonies, likely is
heading back behind bars.
Kerik, who was hailed as a hero alongside former Mayor Rudy Giuliani after the Sept. 11 terror attacks and nearly became chief of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, admitted in November that he lied to the White House, filed false taxes and committed other crimes.

In conservative circles, manifestos are all the rage.
Tea party activists are working up their own manifesto, to be called the Contract From America – a play on former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s Contract With America, from the breakthrough midterms of 1994.

games, so we can't show any footage from the Olympics. In fact, I'm not even
supposed to say the word, 'Olympics.' That may have cost us $800,000 right
there." –Jimmy Kimmel

Two thoughts about the photo you ran at the end of Wednesday's offering. Where exactly was this supposed cross? and, I bet that if you showed that picture before the request for money, you would get more contributors (especially men).

When I first saw that photo my thought was, "I love her tan lines." And being a woman, I checked out her accessories and noticed a sparkly cross hanging from her neck and wondered what would Jesus think.
You must be psychic, Rick. See the email below.

To Help You Deflate Photo
My son and his friend are enjoying the Ice Festival in Harbin, China a few days ago. Every winter Harbin becomes a frozen palatial city filled with life size buildings made from ice cubes and huge life like sculptures carved out of snow. I've run a few photos of the Ice Festival in Harbin on my website over the years. I'm so glad that my son has a job, even though it is in China. He wishes a Happy Spring Festival to everyone！, (大家春节快乐！）I bet the ranch that my Florida born and bred son was freezing his ass off in that photo.
