What Dogs Do When They Miss Riding In The Car


Best Quote Ever

So in Nebraska, a bank mistakenly deposits $100,000 into a guys bank account... so he goes ahead and spends 80 grand of it! From the Indy Star:
A La Vista man was charged with felony theft after he spent $80,000 his bank deposited by mistake in his account.

George J. Costa, 45, is charged with theft of lost or mislaid property. It is a crime to take money that's been "delivered under a mistake."

More than $106,000 was deposited into Costa's account between August 2006 and February after a Pinnacle Bank employee mixed up account numbers, according to the Nebraska State Patrol.

The bank was able to recover $26,000 from Costa's account after the mistake was recovered.
Now here is the money quote!
"'Finder's keepers' and 'possession is nine-tenths of the law' aren't legal principles," said Sarpy County Attorney Lee Polikov.
Ya know, I am one of those people who would have told the bank that there was a mistake. I would have wanted to take the money and run... but I wouldn't have. What would you have done?

Man Gets DUI On Way To DUI Hearing

Yea, this guy in Pennsylvania may be alcoholic... from CentreDaily.com:
A man charged with drunken driving on the way to a drunken driving hearing said he probably will have to quit drinking.

Anthony R. Lilly, 74, of Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, was arrested when his car struck a guardrail Tuesday as he was driving to District Judge Raymond Shugars' office for a hearing on a Feb. 8 drunken-driving arrest, police said.

An officer found Lilly at the wheel smelling of alcohol, slurring his words and appearing disoriented, township Police Chief Rob Martin said. He said Lilly refused a Breathalyzer test and was charged with drunken driving and related charges.

When arrested Feb. 8, after striking a parked car at an Arby's restaurant and driving away, Lilly had a blood-alcohol content of 0.259 percent, more than three times the 0.08 percent legal limit for driving in the state.

Lilly told The Patriot-News of Harrisburg he did not remember details of Tuesday's accident. He said he was earlier charged with driving under the influence in 1998. Court records showed he also pleaded guilty in a 2004 DUI case and served six months of house arrest.

Lilly described himself as a drinker, but said after the latest arrests he will probably have to stop sitting with the bartender until the early morning hours. "I'll have to quit," he said. "They're going to force me to stop."
Yea, that guy really shouldn't have a license.

Knowing The Bible Could Literally "Set You Free"

Really, check out this Ohio story, from the Indy Star:
A man arrested on Wednesday for allegedly trying to use a stolen credit card at a drugstore got a break from a judge after passing a sort of Bible quiz.

When Eric Hine appeared in court this morning, his attorney described him as a church-goer, hoping the judge would set a low bond.

Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge John Burlew was skeptical and asked Hine to recite the 23rd Psalm.

He did: all six verses. Some in the courtroom applauded.

Burlew was satisfied and released Hine on a $10,0000 appearance bond, meaning he'll have to pay that amount if he doesn't show up for his next court date.

What Not To Put On Your Resume

Here are ten things people should not have put on their resume:
A job candidate...
  1. attached a letter from her mother.
  2. used pale blue paper with teddy bears printed around the border.
  3. explained a three-month gap in employment by saying that he was getting over the death of his cat.
  4. specified that his availability to work Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays is limited because the weekends are "drinking time."
  5. included a picture of herself in a cheerleading uniform.
  6. drew a picture of a car on the outside of the envelope and said the car would be a gift to the hiring manager.
  7. listed hobbies that included sitting on a levee at night watching alligators.
  8. mentioned the fact that her sister had once won a strawberry-eating contest.
  9. stated that he works well in the nude.
  10. explained an arrest record by stating, "We stole a pig, but it was a really small pig."
So... why would someone steal a pig?

That Smell Is Just My Cologne "Reefer"

Some people learn things the hard way... like how marijuana and police don't mix. From the Indy Star:
A man applying for a gun permit at the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office was instead charged with marijuana possession after authorities smelled it on his body.

"The odor was so overpowering that it soon filled hallways," according to a news release from Sheriff Alan Jones' office.

The canine team was called last week after officials in the office smelled marijuana on Dennis Lee Vines Jr., 25. Kilo, a German shepherd canine officer, found two small bags of marijuana, two marijuana cigarettes and two packs of rolling papers in Vines' pickup truck that was in the sheriff's office parking lot, authorities said.

Vines was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He was released on an $850 bond.

"We see it all in this business," Jones said of the incident.
Now the question is, did he still get his gun permit? But really, if you are going to go to a Police Station... leave your marijuana at home and not in your truck.

Indiana Prison Riot

So far it seems two are hurt... from the Indy Star:
Inmates at the New Castle Correctional Facility took over part of the prison this afternoon, injuring two employees and setting several fires before order was restored within about two hours.
...
The condition of the injured prison staffers was not immediately disclosed.

The incident began at about 2 p.m., the DOC said. Backup officers arrived about 15 minutes later and used tear gas to quell what the agency called a "disturbance."
There may have been warning of this riot two weeks ago.
A woman who said her daughter was a correctional officer in the facility talked to WTHR-TV (Channel 13) outside, saying that prison staffers were warned earlier that trouble was coming because of the arrival last month of inmates from Arizona, housed here under a contract with the prison's private operator.

"They brought these prisoners in from Arizona," the woman said. "OK, this is Indiana. Who wants to be that far away from their own family?

"They (the prisoners) warned them two weeks ago that this was going to happen. And it is happening now. It did not make sense to bring those prisoners here."
Listening right now to MSNBC, a spokesman says that the riot is over, and that the two injured jail employees have only "bumps and bruises." As Drudge would say, "Developing..."

UPDATE: Masson has more about the riot and the privately run prison.

When Women Can't Choose

Great opinion piece from the Indy Star:
The bleeding began just after Donna McNichol's routine exam in the early weeks of her first pregnancy. "They told me I might spot a little bit after the exam," she recalled in an interview. "But I wasn't spotting. I was flowing."

The pregnancy was planned and joyful. The young California health aide and her teacher husband had just announced it to their families with a celebratory video of themselves playing "Wheel of Fortune." "I was really blessed," McNichol, now 49, says.

Her bleeding continued even when she rested in bed. Then the nausea started. "They kept saying that was a good sign, but it wasn't," McNichol says. "Sometimes I would pass big blood clots -- even the size of my fist."

Secret To Long Life: Being A School Teacher

Two of the oldest people in the United States met Saturday. A relative drove 113-year-old Bertha Fry of Muncie to a Shelbyville nursing home to visit Edna Parker, who celebrated her 114th birthday Friday.

Members of both families attended the meeting along with Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, who presented Parker with a Sagamore of the Wabash. The award recognizes Hoosiers who have endeared themselves to the people of Indiana.

A representative of Guinness World Records also was on hand to confirm the event.

The women's combined age is more than that in any other meeting of two humans on record. Together, they accounted for 227 years and 142 days as of Saturday, breaking the previous record of 219 years.
...
Both Parker and Fry are former school teachers.

11 Year Old Hero

This girl has got the right stuff... from WSBT TV:
Police are calling an 11-year-old girl from Mishawaka a hero. She managed to stop a van that went out of control when her mom had a diabetic reaction, saving her family.

“Mom, stop, I can't get it stopped!” Abigail Parker said during the frantic 911 call she made. “I’m scared! I don't know what to do!”

Abigail was riding in this van on U.S. 31, south of Peru on Saturday when her mom had a diabetic attack behind the wheel.

“I noticed my mom was kind of jerking the car and she was going really fast,” Abigail said.

In fact, she said at one point her mother was driving more than 80 miles per hour.

“So I kind of started talking to her and telling her to slow down and she wasn't responding so I figured something was wrong," Abigail told WSBT News about the incident.

Abigail was sitting in the back seat when it happened. She was able to crawl to the front, crawl onto her mother's lap and bring the car to a stop.

Four Dollar Gasoline?

Via Pudentilla at skippy's place, we see Bloomberg telling us that $4 gas is going to happen this summer.
Whether it's $50 to fill up your Prius or $130 for the Ford Expedition, $4-a-gallon gasoline is coming to a pump near you.

Fuel prices are rising at a pace not seen since Hurricanes Katrina and Rita knocked out a third of the U.S. oil refining industry in 2005. Gasoline consumption is climbing twice as fast as last year and will accelerate when summer travel begins late next month.

``What we're surprised by is the increased demand,'' said James Mulva, chief executive officer at ConocoPhillips, whose refineries from California to New Jersey produce 56 million gallons of gas a day, enough to meet 14 percent of the country's needs. ``Even though the price of gasoline is up, the demand is up,'' he said in an April 12 interview in Houston.

Population gains and U.S. economic growth are causing an increase in fuel purchases, according to Orlando, Florida-based AAA, the nation's largest organization for motorists. The U.S. economy will expand at a 2.4 percent annual pace in the second quarter, up from 1.8 percent in the first three months, according to the median estimate of 74 economists surveyed by Bloomberg. Gasoline use is rising almost 5 percent above the five-year average.
Man, it might cost too much to mow my lawn this summer. Maybe I should go green, and invest in some goats?

National "Rock, Paper, Scissors" Competition?

Oh come on now, I have seen it all now. From the Indy Star:
A burly 64-year-old retiree who resembles jolly old St. Nick will be going mano a mano with other contestants in a national title bout - in Rock, Paper, Scissors.

Ray Scott won the New Hampshire title by advancing through eight rounds of tournaments at Manchester bars and pubs. With his white beard and spectacles, fans cheered "Go Santa Go" during the New Hampshire finals earlier this month.

Next month Scott heads to Las Vegas to compete in the USA Rock, Paper Scissors League's national competition. If he makes the right move, he wins the $50,000 grand prize. The competition will be broadcast on ESPN.
Oh come on, it is even going to be on ESPN??? What won't that channel show???

A Talent I Will Never Have

Yea, I know kids these days love "texting" messages on those new fangled cell phones or on those tiny keyboards of palm pilots... yet how they can do it so fast with just their thumbs is pretty impressive. Although I will never take the time to master such a skill... from the Indy Star:
OMG! Thirteen-year-old Morgan Pozgar, of Claysburg, Pa., was crowned LG National Texting champion on Saturday after she typed "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from "Mary Poppins" in 15 seconds.

"I'm going to go shopping and buy lots of clothes," the teen said after winning her $25,000 prize from the electronics company LG.

Morgan defeated nearly 200 other competitors at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan to become East Coast champion and then beat West Coast champion Eli Tirosh, 21, of Los Angeles.

She estimated that she sends more than 8,000 text messages a month to her friends and family.

Beware The Dark Side Of The Cage


Indiana #1 In Volunteering

Yea, we are Number One... eat it other states! We are the most generous! From Fox 28:
Hoosiers have hearts of gold, at least that's what a new study shows.

The study, released this week by the corporation for national and community service indicates that in 2006, Indiana's volunteers contributed more than four billion dollars to charities.

That puts Indiana far ahead of other states.

The signs are everywhere.

We live in a community that thrives in part, because of its volunteers.
I myself worked as a volunteer for two years... service to your community is a great honor. I am glad to see we are leaders in volunteering!
Geoff Landis says, "Whether it be United Way or local soccer league, there's always plenty of people who say yes, and they're gonna help coach, fundraise, or help rake leaves."

Jerry Quatman says, "I'll go over to the labor agency and I'll see people show up there on Tuesday to help pass out food to senior and disabled folks."

None of them are looking for notoriety.

Todd Martin says, "We're just a very small insturment in the grand plan here."

All the volunteers come with different reasons for getting involved.

Geof Landis says, "Its about 10 to 12 years ago now and I was at home. The little girl came to my house and said, "I need to use the phone. I need to call 9-1-1 my dad just threatened to kill my mom."

Geoff Landis saved two lives that day and has continued to serve the community since.

As President of the United Way, Jerry Quatman says its the people you help that it make it worthwhile.

Jerry Quatman says, "I can remember when I was involved with infromation and referall service, this one lady came in and she sat with me with a broken arm and stitches in her face and had nowhere to go."

Quatman helped her start a new life.

And Todd Martin is working to keep the cycle going.

Todd Martin says, "When you are able to take a young kid and show them exactly what their money will do in terms of saving lives...it facilitates an attitude of giving...giving back."

Martin, a successful business man, is working with his 7 and 9 year olds to raise money for sick kids in Africa.

Jerry Quatman says, "Things happen with volunteerism that just wouldn't happen any other way."

Lives are forever changed whether you're the one doing the helping or being helped.

Geof Landis says, "One of the things in our local soccer league is we hire a lot of college kids and some high school kids to coach and I just know what that's like. You're in Wal-Mart or wherever and you just see this local kid tugging on parents jacket, and saying thats my coach, and that's a real good reason to get involved, I think."

Todd Martin says, "When you look in the mirror at night and you brush your teeth, you like who you see looking back at you."

Experts say more than 30 percent of Hoosiers committed time to volunteer service in 2006, that's up two percent from the year before.

Talk About A Clown College

What, you think they are funny? From WSBT tv:
At a Burger King in Elkhart, an employee watches students hard at work.

"It takes a lot of commitment and a lot of dedication," explained one student.

"So we practice that over and over and over until we get it down pat," said an instructor.

This is not a typical classroom ... but these aren't typical students.

This is the L-Kart ClownTown Alley — a 10-week training course for clowns.

"We teach it once a year here and there's absolutely no charge," said Paul Camiller, who goes by the clown name Notcho Trouble. He helps run the course.
I am tempted to try this out...
Trainees are taught the three types of clowns, balloon twisting, face painting, costuming, skits, magic, and more.

"We just cover the tip of the iceberg in 10 weeks," Notcho Trouble told WSBT News. "They don't have a clown name, they don't know what type of clown they wanna be, and so we try and draw that out of 'em and find out what it is that they want to do."

They are taught the basics, and encouraged to find their niche.

"Some of us in particular are not face painters," laughed Wiggleston the clown, referring to Notcho Trouble. "One of us has been asked never to paint a face again!"

Two Cents On Virginia Tech

I know in any tragedy, we need answers. We want accountability for those who died, and we want someone to blame.

What I don't like is how we are quick to blame police, victims, the school... and it seems we forget that the blame lies in that one, crazy shooter. Others have actually put my thoughts a little better than I could, so I will use their words. First from Mike of Mike's Neighborhood:
The tragedy goes without saying. It's a horrible, horrible story.

But I'm also disturbed because I know we're gonna get all manner of hand-wringing and quasi-concerned punditry from all sides for the next few weeks: pro-gun, anti-gun, anti-immigration (because early reports seem to indicate that the gunman was a Chinese man, in America on a student VISA; if I'm wrong, I apologize. But that's what I've read), pro-immigration, comparisons to terrorism, arguments that it has nothing to do with terror, analogies to Iraq, etc.
...
Terrible things happen because there are terrible people in the world. There isn't much more of a lesson we can draw. As humans, we want to know "why?" But there's really no answer.
I always thought of that last part when I heard the MSM ask over and over "Why" and when they asked people over and over what were their thoughts and they would answer, "It was so senseless. Why would he do it?"

And actually Atrios summed it up best, although he makes his point in harsher words than I would have used...
My point, below, was simply that if people want to kill people and don't care if they get killed or caught they're going to kill people. The existence of guns facilitate certain kinds of crimes, but there are many other options. Large motor vehicles could be quite effective, too, and don't require much creativity or skill. More creative options also exist.

Obviously security measures can protect specific locations and minimize the likelihood of certain kinds of violence at those locations - hard to bring a gun past security at an airport, easy to shoot up the check-in desk area or drive your SUV into the crowd standing outside - but I assume we don't want all of our spaces to have that kind of security. There's a catchy phrase for that kind of state, which usually has bad connotations.

College campuses are not daycare centers, they are places where large numbers of adults live and study and work. While some, especially those in dense urban areas, are more closed to the outside world, many are quite open. You know, like shopping malls are, another set of places where large numbers of people congregate with minimal security present and where someone who didn't care if he got killed or caught could successfully kill a lot of people.

None of this is an argument in defense of whatever specific measures the campus took yesterday, it's just about the notion that there are any general security measures any of us would want applied which could prevent this kind of thing. You can't. At most you can divert it.
He has a great point... when people ask how this tragedy could have been avoided, there are two options: a total police state, or a ban on guns and a huge massive effort to destroy what stockpiles are here. Neither option will happen... so we are stuck with pretty much the way we are living now.

Anyway... some thoughts.

The War On Abortion

Lets face it, there has been a war against a woman's choice for awhile now... and I know I got a sinking feeling when Bush was reelected in '04 that the Supreme Court was going to change strongly to the right. Why start with banning partial birth abortion? Because it is the nastiest sounding procedure that they could find. Sure, our side could try being all rational and explain how medicals needs could require such a procedure... yet the other side just wants abortions banned so NO reason would be good enough. Even the life of the woman isn't a good enough reason...

Now I could rant on and try my best to make my thoughts coherent and "sound good," but others do it so much better. I will only point out that it is funny that only men voted to uphold the ban, while the only woman on the supreme court voted against it. This ruling was just another domino to fall in the line of dominoes to ban abortion altogether... but mind you it was a huge one because it was the first banned abortion procedure to be upheld by the court.

Anyway, I suggest going to read Lawyers, Guns and Money:
As an antidote against the inevitable chorus of fake moderates arguing that today's abortion case is no big deal, four things to keep in mind as you ponder today's decision:
More at the site, and maybe read from them this:
As Bean notes below, the Supreme Court has upheld the Federal "Partial Birth" abortion ban, which as I have argued in detail was 1)inevitable with Alito's appointment to the Court and 2)very bad. It was, I suppose, inevitable that it would come down while I'm on the road, and I therefore haven't finished reading the decision yet.
Or maybe go read the Bitch Ph.D.:
Ladies, we're offically second-class citizens. This according to the Supreme Court, which today found that it's constitutional for lawmakers (aka white men) to decide what kind of medical care we need. In short, the Court upheld the "Partial Birth Abortion Ban." Despite the fact that "partial birth abortion" is not a medically recognized term.
She has more here:
Surely it's also significant that the only woman on the court wrote a hell of a dissent. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as always, warms my heart. Read her full dissent here if you need, at least, to feel like there's still someone on the court who gets it.
There is more good posts out there, and if you know one feel free to leave it in the comments for me.

Odd Indiana News

First we have a WTF? from the South Bend Tribune:
Surveyors looking for the source of a clogged drain in southern Adams County found a 7-foot dead alligator.

"At first they thought it was a turtle in there, but then they discovered an alligator," Adams County sheriff's Deputy Larry Butler said.
It's Tax Day, and there is something under the mailbox!
The post office on South Michigan Street is back open following a bomb scare Monday morning. Police were called to the scene around 4:00am when an object was found underneath a post office drop-off box.

"In the early morning hours, a citizen was actually dropping off mail at the main Post Office, [when they] saw what they thought was a suspicious package stuffed underneath one of the mail boxes," South Bend Police Division Chief Gary Horvath told WSBT News.

Within minutes, police blocked off the parking lot. The South Bend Bomb Squad arrived a short time later.

Horvath said the department always has to be on high alert.

"Number one, it's a government facility," he said Monday. "Number two, it's tax day and some people, they don't wanna pay their taxes."
What could it be???
The package turned out to be a woman's purse.

Indiana's Secretary Of State Pulls An "Imus"

Ok, what was Todd Rokita thinking, especially after what Don Imus did. From the South Bend Tribune:
Indiana's secretary of state asked forgiveness Monday for evoking images of slavery in describing black voting trends during a Republican event in southern Indiana last week.

During a Thursday speech at the Daviess County annual Lincoln Day Dinner, Republican Secretary of State Todd Rokita said 90 percent of blacks vote Democrat and questioned why.

"How can that be?" Rokita was quoted as saying by the Washington Times-Herald. "90 to 10. Who's the master and who's the slave in that relationship? How can that be healthy?"

Several black lawmakers expressed anger over the remarks.

Those Darn Satinists

I did a post about this newspaper picture long ago on a blog far away... but it is as funny today as it was then! So my little town has a park where hooligans decided to spray paint graffiti. Lets critique them, shall we?


Ok, in this first piece we see a classic graffiti reference to 4:20. Not bad, not bad... I would even give bonus points for the creative use of bubble numbering. Ok, on to the second one!


Oh no... can you spot the critical mistake? Kids these days, I tell ya the schools are failing us when our young hooligans can't spell Satan right. It is sad, really.

Update On Canadian Jailed In Georgia

Previously on Marked Hoosier...
A 23-year-old Carleton University master's student is outraged and demanding an apology from Georgia officials after spending more than 11 uncomfortable hours in a detention centre for running a stop sign and speeding.
While I was rereading the article, trying to decipher if this was part of a first step Georgia was taking so they could do background checks on all foreigners... I noticed that there was already a follow-up to the article saying that Georgia was double checking to make sure all proper procedures were followed. Well honestly, I was like WOW. I tell ya when Canada calls, people jump! Anyway... now Georgia admits that mistakes were made.
Glynn County Sheriff Wayne Bennett said Cheryl Kuehn, a 23-year-old Carleton University master’s student who was driving through Georgia on her way to a Florida vacation, should have been released within an hour of her arrest.

As a foreign national brought to the Glynn County Detention Centre, Mrs. Kuehn was subject to a simple check to see if she was legally in the United States — a procedure that normally takes no more than an hour, according to Sheriff Bennett. Sheriff Bennett said this is the first time a foreign national has been detained so long on minor violations.

“And it damn well better be the last,” he said.
Because she was arrested on minor charges, “she should have been able to post bond and be released,” he said.

An internal investigation by the sheriff’s office, expected to last seven days, so far has found that at least two officers failed to follow protocol while processing Mrs. Kuehn, said Sheriff Bennett.

Depending on their disciplinary history, the officers face consequences ranging from being suspended without pay to losing their jobs.
That last part troubles me... that it will all be blamed on the officers. Ever notice that when "the fit hits the shan," that it is always the fault of the people at the bottom of the totem pole? (Oh and a side note, can I use any more clichés?) I think that mistakes were inevitable because law enforcement were implementing new procedures to comply with the new Georgia laws being passed concerning illegal aliens. I would bet money that other foreigners were given the same treatment, and I bet that they didn't come from Canada.

5 Reasons George W. Bush Isn't As Stupid As You Think

Ok, this is funny! Check out this article from Cracked.com listing the reasons Bush isn't as dumb as you think he is!
5. His "Down-Home" Country Roots

Why He Appears Mentally Disabled

Famously, Bush has cleared more brush than, well, a guy who's cleared a lot of brush. It's his hobby—moving sticks around like a real live cowboy. Go figure.

Why He's Actually a Genius

He made America forget that he's actually from the North. The cowboy president was, in fact, born in Connecticut and attended high school at the prestigious Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass. He moved on to college at Yale in New Haven, Conn. and then graduate school at Harvard in Cambridge, Mass., all the while spending summers at his family's estate in Kennebunkport, Maine.

The Pudding (Where The Proof Is)

All you other retaaaaads from New England haven't been able to drop that accent. Not only did Bush avoid it, he pulled a Southern one out of thin air the same way Madonna started talking like Oliver Twist after living in England for two months.
That is just reason #5! Click on over to read the rest! My personal favorite?
3. His Functional Retardation at Press Conferences

Why He Appears Mentally Disabled

News flash: the man can't string a complete sentence together.

Why He's Actually a Genius

The President has contributed more new words to the English language than anyone since Shakespeare. How many words did, say, Jimmy Carter invent? Zero (although the sharp rise in popularity of the phrase “what a pussy” coincided exactly with his presidency). Shakespeare invented words like “braggartism” that—let's face it—don't exactly get used a lot. Bush, on the other hand, invented the word “misunderestimate,” which is used daily by douchey office jockeys coast to coast. And who's to say it's not a real word? “Braggartism” wasn't a word either, until someone of exceptional intelligence said it was.

The Pudding (Where The Proof Is)

A highly advanced Internet search machine known as a “Google” reveals 74,000 results for Bush's “misunderestimate,” compared with only 2,400 for Shakespeare's “braggartism.” Who's a better word-inventor-guy now?

And The Streets Shall Run Red...


Talk about a creepy section of road... from the Autoblog:
Whoa, they built a highway through a cranberry bog? Uh, no. Lowell Massachusetts is in the north central part of the state, miles removed from the bogs of the Cape. The orange hue that coated route 495's northbound lane did make for a colorful nighttime drive, however messy it ended up being. A tractor trailer carrying dye intended for mulch deposited some of its cargo on the highway after the load shifted.

The dye, colored with iron oxide, is generally considered harmless, and a local car wash ended up doing a booming business cleaning the orange schmutz from afflicted cars. The only danger from the spill seemed to be some obscuring of lane markings over the heaviest stretch of the roughly three miles the spill eventually occupied. Not that lane markings mean much to drivers here in Massachusetts, anyway, so that's a non-hazard. Nobody has been cited in the incident, which seems to have been mainly harmless. Some cars got messy, 495 now has a splash of color, and nobody got hurt. There is an insurance hotline to call for drivers affected, though we wonder how many car washes they're willing to pay for. Any residual dye will be gone after Thursday's forecast snow, we're sure.

Your Wednesday Movie

T.S. Quint: [Reading the break-up letter that Renee gave Brodie] Woah, she calls you "callow" in here.

Brodie: You say that like it's bad.

T.S. Quint: It means frightened and weak-willed.

Brodie: Really? Shit. That was the only part of the letter I thought was complimentary.

"It's an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, Man had always assumed that he was the most intelligent species occupying the planet, instead of the *third* most intelligent. The second most intelligent were of course dolphins. Dolphins had long known of the impending destruction of earth and had on many occasions tried to alert mankind but their warnings were mistakenly interpreted as amusing attempts to punch footballs or whistle for titbits."

Chocolate Good For You

Ok I like this news... from Reuters:
Some may see a cup of tea as soothing but chocolate is more likely to lower one's blood pressure, German researchers reported on Monday.

Foods rich in cocoa appear to reduce blood pressure but drinking green and black tea may not, according to an analysis of previously published research in the Archives of Internal Medicine, published by the American Medical Association.

The drop in blood pressure among participants who consumed cocoa products for at least two weeks was in the same range as achieved by someone taking drugs commonly prescribed to control high blood pressure.

The fall in blood pressure credited to cocoa could be expected to reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks by 10-20 percent, the report said.
YEA! So time to go crazy on Hershey bars!!! Wait...
But don't start gobbling up chocolate bars just yet, wrote study author Dirk Taubert of the University Hospital of Cologne, Germany.

Treats such as dark chocolate might be substituted for other high-calorie desserts, based on the study's findings, but "we believe that any dietary advice must account for the high sugar, fat and calorie intake with most cocoa products.

"Rationally applied, cocoa products might be considered part of dietary approaches to lower hypertension risk," he wrote.
DAMN... so close.

Canadian In Georgia? GO TO JAIL!!!

Ya know, I never trust canucks anyway, so going straight to jail for missing a stop sign seems perfectly normal! From Ottawa Citizen:
A 23-year-old Carleton University master's student is outraged and demanding an apology from Georgia officials after spending more than 11 uncomfortable hours in a detention centre for running a stop sign and speeding.

Cheryl Kuehn said she was fingerprinted and had her mugshot taken before being forced to strip naked and shower, don a navy blue jail outfit and sleep in a cell with two other women while other inmates jeered and leered at her from adjoining cells.

"I was terrified," said Mrs. Kuehn, who spent Saturday night at the detention centre in southern Georgia after she was taken into custody following the traffic stop outside a restaurant along the I-95 near Brunswick, Georgia.
Ya know, every time I have been to Georgia, I have been pulled over. They don't even like people from out of state, let alone another country.
But officials with the Georgia state police and Glynn County Detention Center, where Mrs. Kuehn was being held, said they were just following procedure when someone from another country is stopped for speeding or other traffic violations -- no matter how minor they might seem.

That procedure, they said, includes holding Canadians, including those carrying a valid passport like Mrs. Kuehn, or other "foreign nationals," in custody until the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency confirms they are legally allowed to be in the country.
It is a real interesting story... is this how we are going to treat all our foreign travelers for a traffic ticket?

Do You Know Who You Are Chatting With?



Shamelessly stolen from My Confined Space.

No Coke For Jesus?

Ok, I am a Coke addict. I admit it, I have a problem... I not only drink it, I will collect Coke products. Yet, Jesus can't have a Coke? From Yahoo News again:
An Italian film showing Jesus Christ drinking Coca-Cola sparked such strong protest from the soft-drinks giant that it blocked the film's Easter weekend premiere, the film makers said.

The film "7 km from Jerusalem" is about an Italian advertising executive who is soul searching after losing his job and marriage. He flies to Jerusalem, where he runs into Jesus.

According to local press reports, he offers the returned Christ a can of Coca-Cola and, seeing Jesus drinking the beverage, thinks: "What a testimonial!"

Apparently Coca-Cola disagreed.
Come on, EVERYONE enjoys Coca-Cola!!!

Taxi!

I know city folk are used to taking taxis everywhere... but this is just ridiculous! From Yahoo News:
Betty and Bob Matas have retired and are moving to Arizona, but like many New Yorkers they don't drive, and they don't want their cats to travel all that way in an airliner cargo hold.

Their solution: "Hey, cabbie."

They met taxi driver Douglas Guldeniz when they hailed his cab after a shopping trip several weeks ago.

They got to talking about their upcoming move, and "we said 'Do you want to come?'" said Bob Matas, 72, a former audio and video engineer for advertising agencies. "And he said 'Sure.'"
...
They plan to leave Tuesday on the 2,400-mile trip to Sedona, Ariz., with Guldeniz driving his yellow SUV cab 10 hours a day for a flat fee of $3,000, plus gas, meals and lodging.
So, does that 3 grand include the tip?

Cartoons



I Link, Therefore I Am

With all the talk about blogrollin', I noticed that I do not give enough link love. So it is time to do a mega link post.

The first link is easy peasy... Shakespeare's Sister has moved to Shakesville. Make sure to change your blogrolls, but while you are there I suggest reading her post On Mentoring And Patronage.
The blog I started on my own now has 17 contributors, countless guest posters in its archives, a blogroll in the hundreds, and thrice-weekly blogwhoring opportunities—and I genuinely try to make time to mentor fledging bloggers. I don’t have a huge platform by any means, but what platform I do, I’m willing to use as much as I can to help out other bloggers.

I have that platform, in large part, because other bloggers have helped me.
Go read the rest, she explains why she is THE AWESOME!

Next I suggest visiting Mike's Neighborhood to read Self-Conscious Vampires And The Porn Stars That Love Them.
Might as well do it. Ladies, gentlemen, film directors well past their prime, and dead horror movie icons-turned shameless junk fiends & stooges in sub-B movies, may I present to you, today's Friday Silly Movie Of My Youth Of the Day . . .

Fright Night
Really go read, you will learn more about Fright Night than anyone should know.

Next I suggest going to visit If I Ran The Zoo, and check out It's About 2012:
Or so I'm tempted to speculate when I read something like this by Steve M, about the U.S. (i.e., Cheney) backing an al Qaeda-linked organization formerly headed by Khalid Sheikh Muhammed that carries out terrorist attacks in Iran.

In other words, we're backing al Qaeda allies against the country that offered to help us against al Qaeda.
Again, really go read!

Next go check out Left In Aboite and read Shoot-Out At The DC Corral:
Mere days before venturing off on yet another brush-clearing adventure in Crawford, President Bush criticized Congressional Democrats for. . .being on vacation:

"The Democrats in Congress … have left Washington for spring recess without finishing the work," said Bush. "They need to come off their vacation, get a bill to my desk, and if it's got strings and mandates and withdrawals and pork, I'll veto it and then we can get down to business of getting this thing done," he said.

Looky here, chimp boy. . .this Congress, unlike the prior one that bowed to and fawned all over you has been working it's collective ass off trying to pass legislation that reflects the will of "we the people" who hired them to do so last November. Apparently you still haven't gotten it through your thick skull that you no longer control all three branches of our government, and that the brakes have been applied to your reckless ride down the unitary executive railroad.
Again go read the rest!

So since I can't think of any good segue, go check out Mixter's Mix and read After the fact, I realized I was supporting the terrorists!
Dammit. I just ate a banana -- that I bought for 55 cents a pound -- and realized, when I got further down onto the peel, that it was a Chiquita banana.

Never mind that they were the only bananas available at the grocery store; I guess I should have forgone my banana craving and gone without.
I am just giving tastes of the posts, remember to go read the rest!

Ok TBogg doesn't need an introduction but he has a very funny Notice of Revocation:
To the citizens of the United States of America, in the light of your failure to elect a competent President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective today.

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories. Except Utah, which she does not fancy. Your new prime minister (The Right Honourable Tony Blair, MP for the 97.85% of you who have until now been unaware that there is a world outside your borders) will appoint a minister for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire will be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

How about just checking out Innisfree, which always has news links. Or Mia Culpa, which has the very funny Monkey Blogging Wednesdays!

I have to run, so I will leave you with links to more of my favorite blogs:
Remember to spread the link love around! :)

South Bend YWCA Fights Against Rape

No one likes the idea that someone "gets away" with rape, so this is good news out of Fox28.
Daria Walsh says, "52 year old women should not be raped in their own home, drugged and raped in their own home."

And although she says she tried to press charges, her case will probably never see the inside of a courtroom because of lack of evidence.

YWCA Executive Director, Linda Baechle says that's very common.

Linda Baechle says, "It's not right when you see how little happens to the rapist in a court of law and how few women actually see something happen with their rape case."

She believes it's one of the main reasons the number of alleged rapes in South Bend is so high.

Linda Baechle says, "They're not locked up for any length of time and people are seeing they're getting away with it and it's certainly not an effective crime deterrent and it doesn't make women any safer on our streets."

So to try and deal with the problem, the YWCA has started a new program called court watch.

They send volunteers into local courtrooms to document the outcome of rape cases and publish the findings.

Linda Baechle says, "We can look at it, not just what's wrong with this picture, but also how can we do this better."

Squirrels Get No Respect

What do you get when you mix a small Indiana town, politics, and black squirrels? You get humor. From WSBT TV:
Auburn’s rare black squirrels can have all the nuts they want, but the honors will have to wait.

An ordinance that would have declared the squirrels the official animal of the northeastern Indiana city was met by silence -- and then jokes -- by council members Tuesday.

Councilman David Painter told Councilman Michael Walter several brown and gray squirrels in his district had called and objected to Walter’s proposal to honor their blackish counterparts.
Sadly, the squirrel ordinance didn't pass... which is just nuts in my book.

Indy Man Sets Girlfriend On Fire

And yet another article that will make you sick to your stomach. From the Indianapolis Star:
A man who allegedly poured gasoline on his girlfriend and set her afire was arrested in the attack Wednesday and faced possible attempted murder charges, police said.

Nupur Srivastava, 33, suffered third-degree burns over 80 percent of her body and remained in critical condition Wednesday.
...
Srivastava's parents told detectives she was preparing to return to Maryland because of "domestic problems" between her and Wilson. The couple had been dating since December.
...
When police entered the residence Tuesday, they noted several burned areas on the carpet. Detectives believe the fire started on the back porch and that Srivastava ran into the house with her clothing on fire.

She was able to fill the bathtub full of water and get into it. Police found ashes floating in the water. When firefighters arrived, they saw the woman walk out of the home's garage.

Yea, anyone got any creative ways to punish this guy? Sitting in jail is too easy, but hey the death penalty would be a nice end. Oye...

UPDATE: Talk about sick... I click on the comments to the story, and some piece of trash left this comment:
this is sad, Not enough fathers show thier little girls how to choose the good guys, so they get used to losers!

Yea, actually the entire comments section will make you sick. Don't get me wrong, there is outrage there, but some sick people can't help but troll. God help us.

Talk About A Bad Day

An Indiana guy has an accident where he hit everything BUT the deer that jumped in front of him... from the South Bend Tribune:
A South Bend man received minor injuries after the car he was driving
crashed into a house, according to a St. Joseph County Police report. It happened shortly before 7 a.m. this morning at the 22700 block of Adams Road in South Bend.

James Vigansky, 49, told police he was eastbound on Adams Road
in his 2000 Gold Buick Regal when he swerved to miss a deer. That's when
he hit a mailbox post, tree, fence and finally a house.
A male was asleep inside the house at the time of the crash. He was not hurt.

It is alright to chuckle, the guy is okee dokee. Sometimes I think the animals conspire to cause wrecks, like in this car insurance commercial.

Dumb Indiana Criminal Hides By Brain


Oh this is funny, from Fox28 News:
Police chased down a criminal who did not play it too smart. He ran into the Health Works Kids' Museum where he tried to hide.

But unfortunately, he forgot to use his brain.

South Bend Police say Cornell Macon ran from the St. Joe County Courthouse when he found out there was a warrant for his arrest.
...
Vice President of Memorial Health System Diane Stover says, "I don't know if it's ironic or not he showed up and was found in our large brain but that's the truth of where they found him today!"

Say it with me kids, "If he only had a brain!"

I Missed "Free Emergency Contraception Day"

I guess yesterday was Free EC Day here in Indiana... here is some of the story from WSBT TV.
The controversial morning after pill will be given away for free at nine different locations around Indiana Tuesday. Planned Parenthood of Mishawaka is one of those locations. Emergency Contraception is one topic that causes a lot of disagreement.

Planned Parenthood says the morning after pill can prevent a pregnancy if it’s taken up to 120 hours after having unprotected sex. But those opposed to Emergency Contraception say that’s the same thing as an abortion. The pill became available over-the-counter last August to women across the United States.

But representatives say recent controversy and misinformation is causing nine of the 35 Planned Parenthood locations in Indiana to declare Tuesday “Free EC Day.”

It sounds like a great idea, so women can have it for when such an emergency arises that calls for EC. I wish there was more publicity for this event though...

News That Makes You Question Humanity

Yea, I was looking for Indiana news. I wish I could find the funny stuff, or interesting... heck something really newsworthy. Then I see this in the Indy Star.
Metropolitan police arrested an Indianapolis man Monday on allegations he raped a 13-year-old girl.

Fredrick Banks, 50, was held this morning in the Marion County Jail on initial charges of rape, child molesting, criminal confinement and sexual battery, records show.

Banks lured the girl into his home in the 1100 block of North Concord Street by promising to give her a snow globe at about 7:45 p.m. Monday, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police report.

Once inside, police said, Banks pulled a knife and assaulted the girl.

Yea, it can be a sick, sick world out there. Just depressing, isn't it?

Bad, Bad Blogger!!!

I wasn't always a bad blogger. I used to be mediocre, and sometimes even a funny blogger... and then I got blogger's block. Actually I haven't been myself for like the past half year or so, but that is a LONG STORY to explain everything. I just find it hard to concentrate, so I can't write anything more than just short, sometimes funny comments. I don't have the energy to go search out teh funny videos to post, so thus I don't have anything to say much here.

I started a site change, but that too has bogged down in my little funk.
