Cop Tells Fire truck - No Parking In Fire Lane

DC's fire and police departments are investigating an incident in Northwest in which there was some sort of dispute between an officer and a firefighter. Sources tell the station a fire truck pulled up to attach a hose to a hydrant. But a police officer -- in the area to patrol during a demonstration -- told the firefighter not to park there, and he had to "move the truck or be arrested."

Iraq Has The Nuke

Iraq tested a bomb in 1987 that cast a radioactive cloud in the open air and was designed to cause vomiting, cancer, birth defects and slow death, according to a secret Iraqi report on the weapon's construction and testing.
Radiation or radiological weapons, sometimes known as "dirty nukes," are the poor cousins of nuclear arms. Their conventional high explosives scatter highly radioactive materials to poison targets rather than destroying them with blast and heat. Their effects on people can range from radiation sickness to agonizingly slow death, which is why military experts often see them as ethically bankrupt.

NC Researchers: Wrestling Is The Cause Of All Problems

High school students who watch wrestling on television may also be more likely to drink, chew tobacco, carry a gun and fight with their dates, according to North Carolina researchers who presented their findings Saturday at the Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
Among high school boys, 63% of whom were recent viewers, watching wrestling was associated with having started a
fight with a date, as well as with carrying a gun or other weapon, using chewing tobacco, taking Ritalin without a prescription and driving after drinking alcohol, according to the survey results.
Yeah, remember that time Stone Cold injected ritalin into his eye?
That was AWESOME!

But He Was Just A Bum

A homeless man appearing in court on a minor charge of drinking in public gasped for air and pleaded for medical help, but the judge summoned nurses and let the man lie on the floor as other defendants filed through the busy courtroom. Ten minutes later, U.S. marshals pulled the man, Robert Waters, 54, to his feet and took him not to a hospital but a cellblock. He later died
``He kept asking for help, saying, 'I can't breathe, man.' And the marshals would say, 'Right, buddy.' He finally collapsed on the floor. When they went in there, he wasn't breathing.''

I want...

To stay home, in bed with my sweetie... a plate of fresh, chilled, succulent fruit on a platter... some coffee, and a bowl of alpha-bits.

I just want to cuddle, nap, munch and make love today. Is that so wrong?

Singing for Daizee


Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia The Tattooed Lady.
She has eyes that folks adore so,
and a torso even more so.
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Queen of Tattoo.
On her back is The Battle of Waterloo.
Beside it, The Wreck of the Hesperus too.
And proudly above waves the red, white, and blue.
You can learn a lot from Lydia!

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

When her robe is unfurled she will show you the world,
if you step up and tell her where.
For a dime you can see Kankakee or Paree,
or Washington crossing The Delaware.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia The Tattooed Lady.
When her muscles start relaxin',
up the hill comes Andrew Jackson.
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Queen of them all.
For two bits she will do a mazurka in jazz,
with a view of Niagara that nobody has.
And on a clear day you can see Alcatraz.
You can learn a lot from Lydia!

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Come along and see Buffalo Bill with his lasso.
Just a little classic by Mendel Picasso.
Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the Amazon.
Here's Godiva, but with her pajamas on.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Here is Grover Whelan unveilin' The Trilon.
Over on the west coast we have Treasure Isle-on.
Here's Nijinsky a-doin' the rhumba.
Here's her social security numba.

La-la-la...la-la-la.
La-la-la...la-la-la.

Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Champ of them all.
She once swept an Admiral clear off his feet.
The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat.
And now the old boy's in command of the fleet,
for he went and married Lydia!

I said Lydia...
(He said Lydia...)
They said Lydia...
We said Lydia, la, la!
