With thanks to Mark: I've had my fun putting down Whitney Houston...I liked her very, very early on and then found her so boring and annoying. Then, when she became a televised drug addict, it was way beyond camp. Lately, Whitney's been getting knocked dead Down Under and was spotted eating passing out there. It's not even funny—the woman is being worked to death and can't even sing anymore. Can't anyone intercede? I'm serious—this woman needs help.

As a follow-up to the dogs vs. Law & Order post over at Joe.My.God, I tried it out on my nearly two-year-old pups...and they clearly don't give a Shih Tzu. Maybe because theirs is not a howly breed?
Just heard about the truly enormous earthquake that rocked Chile (8.8 = something like 100 times more power than the one that devastated Haiti) and the potential for tsunamis that has all areas bordering on the Pacific on edge. It seems crazy that so many momentous events could happen to close together, though my knowledge of history is not broad enough to unequivocally state that all of it must be connected.
Still, this article on climate change—which yokels are currently laughing off due to all the cold weather vs. the misnomer "global warming"—suggested we might have geological disasters in our future.
It seems like Chile might be less affected than Haiti due to its better infrastructure and other factors. Let's hope.
Rep. Trent Franks (R-Arizona) believes tolerance is about acting "half-way decent" toward each other (but only half-way). More interestingly, he believes blacks were better off under slavery than they are under America's current policies.
This kind of insanity should blow up a career, but it's 2010 so maybe he just earned a money bomb instead.
