  1. Hermetic says:

    Groups celebrated Lawrence vs. Texas in a number of different ways.

  2. Kristopher says:

    The Democratic candidates for President show that they really can support each other, no matter who wins. Although, Howard Dean did not appreciate the others conning him into the “position of honor”.

  3. Stephen says:

    “Boys, this is not what I meant when I said I wanted to try it doggie style.”

  4. The Reverend Jessie Jackson showcases the solidarity of the Democratic Presidential candidates in a little number called “Affirmative Action Support On Parade”.

  5. If dogs governed themselves, this is what logrolling would look like.

  6. Chortle says:

    “The Siegfried & Roy wedding went exceedingly well. Great entertainment. Lovely happening. Many tears, not the least of which were mine when I was scratched by an impatient champagne-seeking begal tiger.”

  7. Chortle says:

    LOL. Also bengal. Maybe it was a bagel eating bengal tiger.

  8. A bugle blowing burqa bearing bagel eating bengal tiger, at that…

  9. Rachel Edith says:

    I heard it was a champagne seeking binge drinker bloodthirsty bugbear bugle blowing burqa bearing bagel eating best man bengal tiger.

  10. April says:

    And next on Stupid Pet Tricks, “Dogs in a Conga Line”…

  11. The MoveOn PAC poll proves that Democratic hopefuls can differentiate themselves: Top runners line up outside the barrel, write-ins rest inside. Graham, Moseley Braun, Lieberman, Sharpton, Gore and Clinton (both inside the barrel) are the invisible ones.

  12. P.S. I don’t think .BMP images are supported by Macintosh browsers . . . it doesn’t show up inline on mine.

  13. James Joyner says:


    Weird. You’d think the Mac folks would learn to make a browser by now, no? The web has only been around like 11 years. . . .

  14. I offer this only as a historical explanation. I have no axe to grind. 8^)

    BMP is the Windows extension for the Microsoft™ Windows© Bit-mapped graphics file format. The web standards since Mosaic have been .gif and .jpg, with .png joining the line-up in the late 90s. Do any non-Windows browsers support it? My Linux machine is in the other room, but I don’t think it reads .BMPs natively either.

    And, yeah, there’s the rub of being a minority again . . .

  15. And if my failing memory serves, in the beginning, even .jpg files needed an external viewer. But I remember how much better it was than, e.g., Gopher. It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come since then.

  16. Okay, some of the Mac browsers, and some of the Linux browsers seem to be okay with .BMPs

    I just don’t normally use them. Did’t mean to be a pain.

  17. James Joyner says:

    Daniel: Not a problem. It was just the format of the file I downloaded is all.

  18. MommaBear says:

    Generally, the Mac equivalent of a right-click will offer the option of ‘copy image’, at which point it can then be pasted into a graphics-app for viewing.

  20. Rodney Dill says:

    Even after marshalling the efforts of the Supremes, Sandra Day O’Connor could not escape one essential fact.

    She was an old dog, and this was a new trick.

  21. Rodney,

    Oh, well done…

  22. Scientists have discovered that certain Arctic canines regulate environmental flatulence by rolling the most egregious offenders over the tops of high cliffs.

  23. For Mamma Bear, thanks. I don’ normally complain so much, but I have brain damage, and sometimes I get wrapped up in minor issues. My apologies.

  24. Lasting Magic says:

    Monica resisted the urge to lift her tail.
