This Texas judge is either a very kinky person or just hasn't learned to exist in the 21st century.

This guy in Vienna ME also is an anachronism. Sounds like the days of the wild west.

I've heard of super novas and neutron stars but never a quark star or a quark nova. The latter is now thought to have produced the brightest explosion ever seen in the cosmos.

We all know that makeup can enhance features that the opposite sex finds attractive and cover those that have the opposite effect. A recent experiment finds that the same applies to birds.

The drought conditions in the western half of the nation appear to have had an effect on the Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone National Park.

It now appears that we humans have shod our feet for nearly 40,000 years. While archaeologic remains only go back about 10,000 years, physiological changes in our feet have indicated when we started the long road towards 6" stiletto heels.

The problem of teens taking suggestive (and more) images of themselves and transmitting them to others is posing a legal problem. They are in violation of our child-porn laws but are willingly making themselves the exploited victim.

When surfing the Internet for safe Web sites, not all domains are equal.

40 years ago, today, US Senator Robert F. Kennedy was mortally shot by Sirhan Sirhan in Los Angeles after winning the California primary. He died the following morning. Today, the New York State Assembly renamed the Triborough Bridge to the RFK Bridge.

When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard... listen to his son whine about being bored. keep a straight face when people complain about potholes. be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work. be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night's sleep. be silent when people pray to God for a new car. control his panic when his wife tells him he needs to drive slower. be compassionate when a businessman expresses a fear of flying. keep from laughing when anxious parents say they're afraid to send their kids off to summer camp. keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather. control his frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold. remain calm when his daughter complains about having to walk the dog. try to be more understanding to people who complain about the stress in their jobs. be happy for a friend's new hot tub. be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house.
...not to punch a wall when someone says we should pull out immediately.
The only thing harder than being a Soldier...Is loving one.

The new F-35A fighter/bomber has drawn the interest of Israel and they hope to start making purchases in 2011. UK, Italy and the Netherlands also plan to buy some for evaluation.

Clinton still isn't done. It appears she will congratulate Obama and announce support for his campaign this Saturday. She will also suspend her campaign but retain control of her delegates. An obvious power play to manage her agenda of health care reform and provide her clout to garner a high position in the government should Obama win the general election. Its obvious that she wants the VP spot but I think Obama would be a fool to put her on the ticket. Secretary of State would be a more appropriate appointment in my opinion.

After 2 years of drought, California's Governator has declared that to be a fact but stopped short of issuing a State-of-Emergency.

Also in California, the northern coastal county of Mendocino passed a measure on Tuesday to ban growing pot for personal use. Mendocino and Humboldt counties were infamous for having their largest cash crops being Mary Jane.

The latest mission to the ISS by the space shuttle included the equipment necessary to repair the broken toilet. I bet everybody is breathing easier now.

If you live in New Mexico and Texas, or have friends or family who do, you might want to stay away from raw tomatoes until you have read this article.

Do you have a teenager? It is really important that you read this.

Remember how the 3 month strike by the Writers Guild of America screwed up television this year? Well, the Screen Actors Guild is involved in negotiations now with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers and it isn't going well. TV and motion picture production that can't be completed by the end of this month isn't being scheduled. There goes the fall TV season.

As always, thank you for your patronage. I hope you can come by again.
