"Publishers announced that former President George Bush's book will be released Nov. 9. The book is called 'Decision Points.' The title is based on the fact whenever a decision needed to be made, Bush would point to Cheney." –Jay Leno
Supreme Court Closes Front Door. How Apropos.
The Supreme Court is
closing its iconic front entrance beneath the words "Equal Justice Under Law."
Beginning Tuesday, visitors no longer will ascend the wide marble steps to enter the 75-year-old building....Two justices, Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, called the change unfortunate and unjustified.
Breyer said no other high court in the world, not even Israel's, has closed its front entrance over security concerns.
we have Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger here tonight. In fact, in a week from now,
he'll issue his annual Cinco de Mayo message. Well, see, that shows you how
different California is. An Austrian governor who speaks English with a German
accent congratulating Spanish-speaking people before they drive their Japanese
cars to work in a factory owned by the Chinese." –Jay Leno

Gov. Charlie Crist of Florida is leaving the Republican Party. Apparently he can’t support the state’s tough new immigration law empowering the police to stop and question anyone not wearing a white belt and white shoes. - Laugh Lines

"There's a show on CBS called 'The Mentalist.' It's about a detective with
heightened powers of observation. Let me give you an example of how good this
guy is. This guy is so good, he can tell the difference between a Goldman Sachs
executive that is a lying crook and a Goldman Sachs executive that's a lying
weasel. He's that good." –David Letterman
Subject: Oil Leak
Lisa, I live near Pensacola Beach in Gulf Breeze, FL. An oil smell has been around for a few days. I went to the beach for one last look at the white sugar sand dunes and beach. We're doomed here. My friend who works at the Hilton said 250+ guests checked out/cancelled. Gulf coasters depend upon tourism. I told her not to worry as the rooms will soon be filled with OIL MEN!
Thanks for the toon "Instant Tan", I needed the laugh.
Keep up the great work.
Oh, my son and I danced to the Black eyed peas video link! Congrats on ending the chemo. You are a true survivor.
Good to hear from you Pat. Thanks.
You can smell oil? OMG
I feel fortunate to have lived in that area for 15 years and enjoyed those magnificent beaches. My son grew up playing out on the island. At least I have video. Sigh.
I was just checking out the real estate prices the other day in your area and noticed homes that were for sale around 2005 to the tune of $225,000 are now for sale around $130-175,000. And the market is flooded with homes for sale. The same in Navarre where I lived. I can only imagine the home prices dropping even more with oil on the shores.
Don't you love how FoxNews is trying to turn this into "Obama's Katrina"? This disaster hasn't occurred yet onshore while the immediate aftermath of Katrina was ignored by Bush, just ask Brownie. It seems they are desperate for Obama bashing points. But why compare it to Katrina?
I just heard Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi on FoxNews, say the media is making too much out of this oil spill because not a drop of oil has hit the coastline. Doh! I wonder if he'll have to eat his words or at least drink a cup of crude.
Good luck, Pat. You're going to need it.
