Reading is always a source of ideas for this blog. Recently, three stories caught my eye. They were all about bringing criminals to Justice.

Story 1: Houston police have quietly added 20 more red light cameras to their existing network, most at the same intersection, but pointing the other way. "This is not about revenue," Executive Assistant Chief Martha Montalvo, who supervises the program said. "This is about changing the behavior and public safety." So they're going to be issuing warnings, then? For a month. Then the gravy train starts a rollin'! The further criminalization of the citizenry continues.

Story 2: A man was tarred and feather in Belfast recently, and adorned with a sign that read "I'm a drug dealing scumbag." Police are cluck-clucking about this being "barbaric," but apparently have done nothing but investigate the man. The local citizens, fed up with crime, acted where the police wouldn't. Maybe they were busy putting up red light cameras.

Story 3: At least AmeriKKKans are leaving the police work to the police, and the police are upset. The body of a 28 year old man was discovered next to a busy gas pump, where he had been sitting for 10 hours. Sgt. Victor Quezada said, "I don't want to chew out the public, but it makes me scratch my head how people can get gas next to him, see someone slumped over and not call the police and say anything. It's a two-second phone call." Heck, Sarge, why not just put up a camera?

I went to Midland over the weekend. I filled up at Mini Mart before I left town. I drove to my cousin's house, then back to Water Valley, just outside of San Angelo, before I had to refuel. I drove 365.1 miles on 22.137 gallons. That's 16.5 mpg.

Crap! I thought I got better mileage than that.

Note to self: Start saving for a new car. Well, new to me, anyway.

Could we please stop having celebrities writing editorials about how bad dog fighting is?

Despite a few personal blogs, no one in the media is editorializing that Micheal Vick should go free because he did nothing wrong. CNN has never expressed that opinion. And yet, an actor has stepped up to tell us all how horrible dogfighting is. Emily Deschanel, star of the TV series "Bones," wrote a commentary for CNN. 9I just have to ask, did she approve the photo that runs with the article? She looks positively skeletal!)

Why in the world would I care what a celebrity, albeit a hot celebrity, thinks about anything. Your job is to entertain me, dammit! I am not interested in your opinions, unless it is about your show.

I already know that dog fighting is cruel. I don't need you to tell me that. I know Vick is an idiot. I think his apology pretty much proved that. (Like he would be forgiven and get his job back if he said he was sorry. Sometimes, apologies aren't enough.) So why waste the space for an actress to tell us how bad AmeriKKKans are for allowing dog fighting? Let her get a blog. It's easy. Even I have one. And the Internet is full of people with opinions.

Here's some interesting news for those folks who believe that AmeriKKKans are the sole cause of Global Warming (Praise Gaia and her anointed profits [sic] the Goreacle and Tom Brokaw. Hah-men!) It turns out that belching moose in Norway alone contribute the equivalent of 4630 pounds of CO2 to the Earth's atmosphere. Imagine what the moose in Russia and Canada contribute. Of course, it's a far cry from what AmeriKKKan moose generate. AmeriKKKan moose are automatically more evil than any other moose nationality.

This study is reminiscent of the study back in the mid 90s that reported that American cattle emitted enough methane to affect the now rarely discussed ozone hole. (Clinton fixed it.) Similar studies in New Zealand and in Europe seem to corroborate the moose study. The New Zealand study even includes sheep in the list of suspects.,/p>

Could it be that Global Warming has more causes than human activity as the Goreacle has repeatedly said? Could it possibly be that animals, who are a part of nature, also contribute to Global Warming and that no matter what we do, the Earth will continue to come out of the 14th century Ice Age?

A M00se once bit my sister ...

No realli! She was Karving her initals on the m00se with the sharpened end of an interspace t00thbrush given by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian m0vies: "The H0t Hands of an Oslo Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge M0lars of Horst Nordfink". Mynd you, m00se bites Kan be pretty nasti ...
