Riots In Nigeria

Hundreds of people are reported to have been killed in Nigeria after Christians and Muslims clashed over the result of a local election. A Muslim charity in the town of Jos says it has collected more than three hundred bodies. This does not include the number of fatalities among Christians. But who cares? The world is busy watching TV sets to see what’s happening to the rich people in Mumbai.

A Twenty Fills The Car Again

I was running on vapors. I pulled the Honda into a gas station selling gas for $1.389 a gallon. I gave the attendant a twenty and went back outside to pump. It was close, but the car took the entire twenty. I was actually praying it would so I wouldn’t have to go back inside and get change. It wasn’t long ago I needed almost three twenties to fill the car!

Things Work Out For Ms. Bush

Barbara Bush is rushed to hospital after complaining of stomach pain for several days. I wonder if there will be somebody at the hospital telling her how well it worked out for her because her old ass should be dead anyway?

Citi Gets A Bailout

Citigroup is the latest mega sized financial institution to be given a handout despite its past willingness to make money on people trying to get by. I wonder how often Citigroup simply forgave and even helped out with a little financial aid when people couldn’t pay their citi credit card bills.

Natural Parks For Sale

Late on Election Day, November 4th, the United States Bureau of Land Management announced an December 19th auction of more than fifty thousand acres of oil and gas parcels alongside or within view of Arches National Park and other national parks in Utah. If President George Bush has his way, the view of Delicate Arch natural bridge could one day include a drilling platform.

AIG Gets Another Forty Billion Dollars

Believe it or not! The government is providing AIG with another forty billion dollars in return for partial ownership. And we’re still trying to figure out how we can provide universal healthcare or a livable minimum wage.

Obama Is Tanned

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi described President-elect Barack Obama as “young, handsome and even tanned” and people are getting bent out of shape. It’s not like he pointed at Mr. Obama and said “that one”.

McCain on SNL

Senator John McCain goes on Saturday Night Live to boost his likability. Last week it was Governor Sarah Palin. If I didn’t know better I’d say that the comedy show is doing its best to influence the race in Mr. McCain’s favor.
