Black Friday stampede kills WalMart worker, pregnant woman miscarries...
Really, America? Really...??
(all things butcherhouse and beyond)
John McCain ran one of the most incompetent, schizo campaigns in history - and smashed the GOP to pieces.
Election night at the Biltmore in Arizona is a hilariously dismal scene, like a funeral for a family member nobody liked, who died owing everyone money. The rats here are already bailing off the ship with lightning speed, like L.A. Dodgers fans leaving a playoff game to catch the latest episode of Entourage. The exodus, in fact, begins about eight seconds into John McCain's concession speech, which incidentally starts off on the classiest of notes: with the remaining crowd cursing the name of the new president...Rolling Stone takes a look at the big finale of the McCain/Palin campaign. Check it out.
At long last...
"In our district there was an isolated instance of children making regrettable and unacceptable remarks in regards to harming President-elect Obama," [Superintendent Geoffrey] Thomas wrote in a letter to parents Monday. "Word of this behavior leaked out to a hyperactive media and bloggers which in turn distorted way out of proportion the comments that were made, painting the entire community with the same negative brush."Hyperactive bloggers, huh? Can I join in the virtual finger-wagging?
The MTA reportedly is ready to make deep cuts in its budget that could lead to reduced service, layoffs and more crowded trains. Sources tell CBS 2 the association board is preparing a worst case "Doomsday" scenario that will be presented during its monthly meeting on Thursday...This is potentially so fucked up, I don't even know where to begin with this!
During the Thursday meeting, The MTA is expected to: completely do away with the "W" line, which runs from Queens to Manhattan, and the "Z" line, which runs through Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan. Also on the chopping block: service will be cut in half on the "G" line, which runs from Queens to Brooklyn; and the "M" line, which runs through Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens.
I got totally hooked on MSNBC during the election.
And now, because it's November 17th, I think it's time to have a timely Halloween entry.
Let's get right to it: The first Guns n' Roses album of new, original songs since the first Bush administration is a great, audacious, unhinged and uncompromising hard-rock record...
And in grisly news...
A husband who hacked his wife to death with a meat cleaver in fury over her Facebook entry was jailed for a minimum of 14 years at the Old Bailey today....It may be misleading/incriminating to state that I can relate to this... but the seemingly innocuous world of social networking sites creates complicated new paradigms. You've got this virtual web of connections that you're constantly communicating with, even if you're not active. Change one small thing—like "relationship status"—and it's an immediate all-points-bulletin.
The couple had separated four days before the murder in February and Forrester later told police he had been provoked by his wife changing her marital status to "single" on her Facebook entry, the court heard.
Probably most screenwriters are fairly jealous of Charlie Kaufman. As a screenwriter, he commands the respect usually reserved for playwrights. Whatever that means.
Michael --That's what I call classy.
I'm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.
We just made history.
And I don't want you to forget how we did it.
You made history every single day during this campaign -- every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it's time for change.
I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.
We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I'll be in touch soon about what comes next.
But I want to be very clear about one thing...
All of this happened because of you.
