Bigotry Alive & Well in the OC
Little did he suspect when he put the small brass plaque above the doorway to the Barack Obama Room that he'd receive a backlash.
As with most events and promotions the restaurant holds, he sent an announcement of the small dedication of the Barack Obama Room to his e-mail list of several thousand customers.
At least a half-dozen or so volleyed harsh comments back at him via their own e-mails.
A couple of gems:
"Do not insult us with a Barack Obama room. … You have no idea whether he is a great leader or a hopeless Socialist. You may regret your hasty judgment of what he will do to this country. May you remain Orange County's hidden treasure, with the emphasis on HIDDEN!"
"You must be kidding?" "He didn't do anything yet other than weaken our internal security. Maybe you could house all the Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay) internees there instead."
We'll leave you with this:
Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something.

Water Powered Jet Pack
Not much information seems to be available but it looks like the Water-Powered Jet Pack is tethered with water hoses to a tow-behind water pump. Assuming that the water pump would be a jet pump running on gas which could mean that you could have hours of fun flying around the lake.
And octuplets make 17!
The incredibly selfish and idiotic mother of the octuplets born this week is a single woman who lives with her bankrupt parents - and her six other kids!
The name of the 33-year-old California woman has not been released, but her mother, Angela Suleman, revealed her daughter underwent in vitro fertilization to get pregnant.
She never expected so many of the implanted embryos would develop into fetuses, but rejected the idea of aborting some of them.
The confirmation that the woman used IVF to conceive the eight-pack is sure to raise an ethical furor.

Mexican Voodoo Promotion Nixed
An illustration in the Mexican sports daily Record showed a pair of scissors slicing off the leg of a doll in a U.S. jersey.
The doll was stuck with pushpins, grimaced in pain and its arms were covered in bruises. Stuffing leaked from its No. 10 jersey.
The newspaper ad said it hoped young people would gather around televisions for the match and "apply punishments to our rivals," giving Mexico an edge to end a decade of winless play versus the Americans on U.S. soil.
"Help end the losing streak so Mexico advances," the ad read.
A day later, RadioShack reversed course and withdrew its sponsorship of the campaign.

David Letterman's Mea Culpa
Wracked with guilt, David Letterman apologized profusely Friday night about censoring Bill Hicks 15 years earlier on The Late Show. "I'm sorry that I did it," he said several times. "It was a mistake... The decision was mine."
Letterman aired the censored five-minute standup segment from Oct. 1, 1993 and interviewed Hicks' mom Mary, who stated, "I will tell you it was a very hard time 15 years ago when that happened."
Letterman reportedly was offended by Hicks' Jesus jibe, but on the show he chose not to be specific, calling it "an error of judgement on my part. I made the decision I think born of insecurity more than anything else. I said I don't think we want to have that on the show. So we removed it from the show.
"Seeing it now raises the question, what was the matter with me?" Letterman went on. "What was I thinking? This says more about me as a guy than it says about Bill because there was absolutely nothing wrong with it. It's just perfect."
The Texan-born comic appeared on Late Night 11 times. "We always loved Bill," Letterman added. "He was tremendously funny with a great energy. We just got a big kick out of him." Hicks died of pancreatic cancer on February 26, 1994. He was 32.

The vote, 59 to 0, ended nearly two months of political spectacle in which Mr. Blagojevich, a second-term Democrat who rose from the ranks of Chicago ward politics on the strength of his charisma and the connections of his wife’s family, sought to salvage his career and reputation.
The conviction followed a four-day trial, Mr. Blagojevich’s dramatic address of some 45 minutes to the senators Thursday in which he declared his innocence, and then about two hours of deliberation.
After the first vote, the Senate held a second, deciding again by 59 to 0 to bar Mr. Blagojevich from ever holding public office again in Illinois.

Lynyrd Skynyrd Keyboardist Billy Powell Dies
Powell called 911 about 12:55 a.m. Wednesday saying he was having trouble breathing. Rescue crews performed CPR, but he was pronounced dead at 1:52 a.m.
No foul play is suspected and an autopsy will not be performed.
Apparently, Powell missed a Tuesday appointment with his doctor for a cardiac evaluation. A heart attack is suspected.
Powell survived the 1977 plane crash that took the lives of singer Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, backup singer Cassie Gaines and other crew members. Despite suffering injuries including facial lacerations and nearly losing his nose, Powell was the first to be discharged from the hospital and was the only member to attend his bandmates’ funerals. After Skynyrd, Powell joined the Christian rock band Vision, but reunited with Skynyrd after a decade-long hiatus for some concerts in 1989, and ultimately remained with the band until now.
