New Addition To The Blogroll

Very intelligent and insightful.  This could very well end up being on your daily "must read" list.  Check out kishnevi's blog, "Horseman, Pass By!".  You have my money-back guarantee* that you won't be disappointed.

* Money-back guarantee only applies if you don't pay any money, don't ask for money from me or your parents, or in any way imply you're gonna make some money off the guarantee.  Void where prohibited... which is everywhere.  Parse it all you want, just don't expect any coin, m'kay?

Oh Noes!!!! We're Doomed!

Prince Charles is the latest "big-name" (feh!) to get sucked-in by the global-warming/climate-change/AGW/muddy-thinking imbeciles and proclaim that unless something is done RIGHT NOW!!!!, catastrophe will strike us all down.

"We will end up seeing more drought and starvation on a grand scale. Weather patterns will become even more terrifying and there will be less and less rainfall," he said.

"We are asking for something pretty dreadful unless we really understand the issues now and [the] urgency of them." The Prince said the rainforests, which provide the "air conditioning system for the entire planet", releasing water vapour and absorbing carbon, were being lost to poor farmers desperate to make a living.

So, how much money is it going to cost to avoid all the children and little puppies getting killed by "weather"?

Senator Kennedy In The Hospital

Just heartfelt wishes for his speedy recovery and retirement.  Not even going to link a story because there aren't really many details beyond possible stroke or seizure and he was able to call his family.  Prayers for his family please.

S.Weasel Has The Chops

Check out the new artwork at S.Weasel's place.  She says she's been saving it for the right occasion and I would agree that a Malkin-lanche qualifies.  Leave a comment while you're there and take a look around her other posts.

Then come back here.

The Big Story About Anthony Pellicano Is Still To Come?

I haven't seen this anywhere else, but it looks huge.  A taste:

I called Ms. Busch this evening and she elaborated on the Chuck Philips angle. She told me that when she received a dead fish, a rose, and a note that said “Stop” on her windshield — a threat for which Pellicano was later indicted — a lawyer at the L.A. Times suggested that the paper investigate the matter internally, with the help of . . . Anthony Pellicano. It turned out that the lawyer is married to an L.A. Times editor who, in June 2003, had a Christmas gift from Pellicano on his desk — according to an L.A. Times reporter who told Busch about it.

Go on over to Patterico's and read the details.  It's a great post and I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes bigger than the trial itself.

This Is Probably Not Healthy

A 20 year old Austrian woman has purchased the house where she was held captive for eight years.  When she escaped, her abductor avoided prosecution when he killed himself by jumping in front of a train.

Kampusch told German magazine Bunte that she wanted to keep the house where she was held to protect it from vandals and stop it being torn down, SkyNews reported.

I could understand if she bought it to have it razed and the ground salted, but to preserve it seems unhealthy.

Couple Locked Inside Their Home

A 2005 law in India resulted in an elderly couple being mistakenly locked in their own home.

The couple was caught up in a sweeping municipal drive to instill order in India's chaotic capital by shutting down and demolishing illegally built structures that have sprung up like mushrooms across the sprawling city of 14 million.

City employees mistook the residence of Madhusudan Wadhwa, 76, and his wife for a commercial business in violation of local zoning laws when they locked their gate Monday, officials said.

They didn't even know they were locked in until the son came to visit and saw the municipal seal.  Maybe India should take care of their own business before trying to give advice to Americans.

Just sayin'

Rule Of Law

There are just too many unscrupulous people who use the Rule of Law as cover for their own greed, prejudice, or stupidity.  Vicki No-Veil at The Jawa Report notes the irony of Somalia complaining that France had no right to go after those Somali pirates last month.

"France and Somalia do not have an extradition treaty and French laws are not applicable to crimes committed outside France," said Hussein Mohamed Aidid, chairman of the Eritrea-based Alliance for the Reliberation of Somalia (ARS).

"If the pirates were extradited illegally, like it happened in this case, then they were kidnapped by the French special forces. If the pirates acted against the law, the French should not have done the same.
