GREAT HEADLINE

Matt Drudge has a way with them: GORE TO WARN OF ‘GLOBAL WARMING’ ON NEW YORK CITY’S COLDEST DAY IN DECADE!

Not that the temperature on any given day has a blessed thing to do with the issue, but it’s a very amusing juxtaposition, I’ll admit.

    Should’ve come to sunny Los Angeles, where the weathr is nice and comfortable, and the air is so clear that I can see the downtown towers from my building in Glendale.

    It is funny- When it’s hot the nut burgers say it is proof of global warming. When it gets cold, it is proof of global warming. It must be convenient being so dumb.

    Whether the world is getting hotter or not is debatable. For the sake of the argument, let’s say it is. Why then does it follow that pollution is cause?

    When it gets cold in the winter do we say that’s caused by airconditioners running. And when it gets warm in the summer, do we say that’s a result of using heaters in the winter? I think knee-jerk blame america first reaction about global warming is about as rational.

    The headline reminds us that Gore, in the 2000 campaign, attributed specific hot days to global warming.

GREAT HEADLINE

The MSNBC Breaking News story of the capture of the “Ace of Diamonds,” Saddam’s security chief Adid Hamid Mahmud, is great news.

But I’m more amused by the tagline on the link, “Saddam’s #2 could be gold mine for US intelligence.”

A crappy job, but someone has to do it.

    But he hasn’t been a good boy, so he will be getting coal in his stocking for Christmas.

    And you had the nerve to scold MB a while back for her caption; wash your keyboard off with soap!

    🙂

    [and they still haven’t figured out how to convert that into gold, btw]

GREAT HEADLINE

The story may not be blogworthy, but the headline is: Man Fired Over Doughnut Is Made Whole. Actually, the story is sort of sweet, too. Heh.
