Large chest wins verdict for pin-up girl.

Japanese actress gets trespassing conviction overturned after she proved her breasts were too big to have fit through the window she is alleged to have crawled through. Insert your own "hard look at the evidence" joke here.

Today's primaries are somebody's last stand...the question is whose.

You hear it everywhere: Tuesday is Hillary Clinton's last stand. If she can't win Ohio and Texas, she's history.

True, mostly. But it's not the whole story. The rest goes like this: This is Barack Obama's third chance to knock her out. If he can't close the deal this time, maybe he can't close the deal, period.

And people say I have too much free time.

West eats East.

[T]here are about 40,000 Chinese restaurants in the U.S., "more than the number of McDonald's, Burger Kings, and KFCs combined," Chinese food might be our national cuisine.


Hillary is Right About Obama.

Hillary Clinton is wrong on most issues, but she is right about Barack Obama. Obama is an empty dashiki; he has no experience in any job remotely resembling the presidency of the United States.

BBC: Hamas Terror-Rockets A "Response" and "Deterrence" To Prod Israel Into "Restrain[ing]" Its Own Forces

In related news, Lee Harvey Oswald's bullet was a "response" to John F. Kennedy's "provocative" and "threatening" brainwave activity.

Why the West Is Best.

The great ideas of the West—rationalism, self-criticism, the disinterested search for truth, the separation of church and state, the rule of law and equality under the law, freedom of thought and expression, human rights, and liberal democracy—are superior to any others devised by humankind. It was the West that took steps to abolish slavery; the calls for abolition did not resonate even in Africa, where rival tribes sold black prisoners into slavery. The West has secured freedoms for women and racial and other minorities to an extent unimaginable 60 years ago. The West recognizes and defends the rights of the individual: we are free to think what we want, to read what we want, to practice our religion, to live lives of our choosing.

Snake Vs. Rabbit.

You'll be suprised who wins.

Bhuvan Chand is an Indian blogger who runs an excellent global warming blog. I recommend it highly for anyone interested in separating the hype from the science. Check him out.

Weather Channel founder advocates suing Al Gore to expose"'the fraud of global warming."

“[I] have a feeling this is the opening,” Coleman said. “If the lawyers will take the case – sue the people who sell carbon credits. That includes Al Gore. That lawsuit would get so much publicity, so much media attention. And as the experts went to the media stand to testify, I feel like that could become the vehicle to finally put some light on the fraud of global warming.”
