Apparently the little guy has gone on to enjoy his 72 rat tails in the sky brothel for being beaten to death by a Joooowish baddie on psuedo-stinian children's programming.
Read all about it here.
If you think about it, isn't it hilariously appropriate that the Paly kids' hero is a dead rat?

The Stain has taken on harassing Bar Kochba at For Zion's Sake.
Here's an example:
I crack up when I see crocodile tears cried by Vanilla Sam over the treatment of the poor Africans.
If only Africa had such genuine support a couple decades ago when Uncle Sam was running around assassinating leaders all over the continent.
Of course the Sudanese govt's war on that countries African population is a problem.
But crying to the UN will help nothing. After all, the UN supports Apartheid Israel's ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Otherwise, it wouldn't have midwifed the Zionist fake-state into existence in the first place.
My solution in Sudan: Uncle Sam should certainly stop arming the terrorists attacking the African people.
But we both know that that's not going to happen. After all, there's oil there. And if we've learned one thing, it's that Uncle Sam kills for oil.
Zimbabwe is an interesting case. Prior to 1980, they had an Apartheid system a lot like Apartheid Israel. Mysteriously, Vanilla Sam was quiet about it.
Now he squawks!
People of conscience in the UK are boycotting Apartheid Israel because they see it for what it is: a genocidal terrorist colony of White Europeans created for the sole purpose of suppressing Arab nationalism.
Why not head on over to BK's site and put in your own two cents, my friends?

My sweet husband has spoiled me immensely this weekend...
Knowing that I've wanted one since I was about seven, my knight in shining armor bought a Goffin's Cockatoo for me!
Considering their longevity, Gunny (our name for him) will likely be around as long as we are.
Of course, there will be a lot of adjustment for the little fellow, and socializing, but he really is a very sweet bird.
Between the cat, Great Dane, senior mixed dog, Standard Poodle puppy and the cockatoo, (not to mention the three kids ;) ) we now officially run our own zoo!
I wonder if I can get tax free status? ;)
'Ol Hugo Chavez is kicking it up a notch...
This weekend, Chavez dressed in his green fatigues and cute red beret to give a speech at Tiuna Fort.
Some of the highlights included when the soldiers brought out banners printed with "Fatherland, Socialism, or Death! We will triumph!"
Fatherland or death? Where have I heard that before?
From this source:
"We must continue developing the resistance war, that's the anti- imperialist weapon. We must think and prepare for the resistance war everyday," said Chavez, who has repeatedly warned that American soldiers could invade Venezuela to seize control of the South American nation's immense oil reserves.
The delusions are getting more fervent, I see...

As my usual readers know, I'm definitely not a FemiNazi, but I'm ALL for women having equal rights under the law.
Within our own lifetimes, it has been notoriously difficult for women to take on men in court situations, especially those regarding rape.
Thanks to Judge Cheuvront of Lancaster County, Nebraska, women were shoved one step back.
The 'honorable' Judge ruled that a woman involved in a complaint against her assailant could not use the term "rape" or even "sexual assault" during her testimony.
From this source:
The new order comes from Jeffre Cheuvront, a district judge in Lancaster County, who granted a defense motion to ban such words. A defense lawyer, Clarence Mock, told the Lincoln Star-Journal those references should be restricted to keep the trial fair.
"Rape" is not even a legal term, he noted. And while "sexual assault" is, that references something only the jury can determine, he said.
"Under the rules of evidence, witnesses can't reach legal conclusions," he told the newspaper.
But the judge also rejected a motion from prosecutors to ban the words "sex" and "intercourse," because they imply consent, and the woman who brought the complaint, Tory Bowen, said that leaves her being forced by the judge to commit perjury.
"The word 'sex' implies consent," she said. "I never once would describe (what happened) as sex. He's making me commit perjury."
The encounter happened Oct. 31, 2004.
"In my mind, what happened to me was rape," said Bowen, 24. "I want the freedom to be able to point (to Safi) in court and say, 'That man raped me.'"
But Mock said removing the words to which he objected will leave the case to "turn on the facts."
"Using words like 'rape' creates unfair prejudices for defendants and invades the [duties] of the jury," he said.
On trial for the second time is Pamir Safi, 33. A November trial ended in a hung jury.
Bowen testified for nearly 13 hours then, when "victim" and "assailant" also were banned, and said the impact was "huge."
Jurors will think she's choosing to use the word "sex," she said.
Earlier testimony showed the two were strangers who met at a Lincoln bar the night of Oct. 30, 2004. They had drinks and left together about 1 a.m. Police reports show Bowen told an investigator the following day she could not remember most of the previous evening and that she did not willingly accompany Safi.
Prosecutors later filed the sexual assault charge on the grounds Safi knew Bowen was too intoxicated to consent to sex.
Wendy Murphy, of the New England School of Law in Boston, said the ban could be powerful.
"It's very difficult to explain why jurors feel the way they do," she said. "The point is, language is so passively absorbed they don't even know it."
She said banning the word "rape" is unprecedented and said such a restriction on witnesses "impugns their candor, their credibility."
"Jurors will go back to their room and say, 'She didn't feel it was harmful. After all, she called it sex,'" Murphy told the newspaper. "It's like saying to a robbery victim, 'You can’t say you were robbed, because that's a legal judgment. You can only say you gave your stuff to the defendant.' That's absurd."
Prosecutors said they disagreed with the order, but will follow it.
I wonder if the judge would feel so strongly against biasing the jury if he truly understood what it is like to be raped or assaulted... The fear and shame it brings the woman, and, when she finally gathers the courage to take the accused to court, she is told that she cannot even use the proper terms to describe what happened to her.
I wonder if the judge could refrain himself from using the term "rape" or even "sexual assault" if someone, likely 50+ pounds larger than he were to hold him down and force a penis into the 'honorable' judge's body against his will.
What an utter disgrace.

Pretty cute, huh?
I swear, Congress couldn't find their posterior with both hands.
In other news, the socialist former Democrat-turned-Republican-turned independent that leans more toward socialism (ie:Democrat) Mayor Bloomberg has announced his most recent affiliation change.
From this source:
Just last year, he told a group ofRepublicans about his run for mayor: "I couldn't be prouder to run on the Republican ticket and be a Republican."
Asked on Monday about a hypothetical independent candidate entering the race, Bloomberg launched a broad critique of the Bush administration and Congress and lamented the presidential debates to date.
"I think the country is in trouble," Bloomberg said, citing the war in Iraq and the nation's declining standing globally.
"Our reputation has been hurt very badly in the last few years," he said. "We've had a go-it-alone mentality in a world where, because of communications and transportation, you should be going exactly in the other direction."Ladies and gentlemen, this is why I do not vote down party lines. They are utterly meaningless, unless of course, you count them as tools of convenience for the shifty politician.

Can you believe this?!?
NYC Poor to Get Cash for Good Behavior
Jun 19, 12:39 AM (ET)
By SARA KUGLER
NEW YORK (AP) - Poor residents will be rewarded for good behavior - like $300 for doing well on school tests, $150 for holding a job and $200 for visiting the doctor - under an experimental anti-poverty program that city officials detailed Monday.
The rewards have been used in other countries, including Brazil and Mexico, and have drawn widespread praise for changing behavior among the poor. Mayor Michael Bloomberg traveled to Mexico this spring to study the healthy lifestyle payments, also known as conditional cash transfers.
In New York, the two-year pilot program with about 14,000 participants will use private funds Bloomberg has raised because he did not want to spend government money on something that is highly experimental. More than $43 million has been raised toward the $53 million goal, Deputy Mayor Linda Gibbs said.
Hey, I'm a well behaved, responsible person. I'm not poor, but I'm certainly not rich, either. Can I have some free money from the government?
Of all the ridiculous schemes. Hell, we won't secure our borders, and now we're going to EMULATE MEXICO to solve our economy and poverty problems?!? If we really wanted to follow Mexico's example, we would start shipping our poor up to Canada, and have them send money back to us. Sheesh...

The prestigious New York Post is running a story about a Las Vegas madame and that got busted for dealing and pimping... and who dropped Bill Clinton's name as a client, among others.
An accused Sin City madam, Esperanza Brooks, 36, dropped their boldfaced names as she bragged about having high-powered clientele while being secretly recorded by an undercover cop, according to a Las Vegas police report made public this week by the department.
"These are not your average girls. Some of them have worked with Bill Clinton," Brooks told an undercover officer while assuring him of her girls' cleanliness, according to the Vegas police report. The Post's Marianne Garvey also reports Brooks boasted to cops that she had 40 women working for her.
But legal experts were shocked at the unprofessionalism of the Vegas cops for allowing the unsubstantiated and wild claims about O'Neal and Clinton to be included in public documents. "The Vegas police allowed a criminal suspect to defame two prominent men while she didn't even know she was being recorded," said criminal defense lawyer Ed Hayes. "This would never happen in New York."
Hillary must be having an utter fit right now... Either Bill has gotten caught philandering again, or at the very least, the Las Vegas police have caused her campaign some embarrassment.
Read the whole story here.
The BBC acknowledged the bias, saying that they would figure out ways to "face the challenges of impartiality in the modern world."
Um... Call me crazy, but why not try hiring a few conservatives, or busting the butts of reporters that bring clearly leftist stories to the table?

My gentle readers will be pleased to know that I am now more haram than ever, having spent the last two days at Dog Fest at the Voice of America Park.
Dog Fest is a two-day event with lots and lots of vendors, animal adoption and rescue agencies, and of course, everyone brings their dog(s) with them for canine socialization.
The kids and hubby enjoyed taking our Great Dane, Fortune on the first day, and our three-month old Standard Poodle puppy, Ivan, today.
Both dogs performed admirably, heeling nicely with little or no correction despite the people, noise, food smells, and of course, hundreds of other dogs of all shapes and sizes.
All of this took place between the Nation Station's antenna and old transmission tower.
Check out the history there; it's great!

I just can't take it. I wake up and turn on the computer, and see that Hamas and Fatah are joining up, and that El Presidente Jorge Bush is all for them getting even more Israeli land.
Of course, while all this is going on, El Presidente and his corrupt Congress are trying to give away the power of We The People. How many times must we tell these asshats NO AMNESTY?
My guess is that it doesn't matter; they couldn't care one whit what we want. They care only for their own hides and whatever votes they can get.
Then there's the War in Iraq... An utter debacle by the government, who refuses to fund or allow our soldiers to kick the arse they were sent there to kick.
Five more soldiers have been murdered by terrorists, and we let it slide again, rather than utterly decimating the area that the terrorists were firing from.
I don't care if the terrorists are firing from a civilian area, a mosque, or while standing on top of the bones of the Pedophile Mohammed himself... KILL THEM!!!
So, instead of losing what I have left of my sanity over the weekend, I'm going to finish up with this picture of a pygmy rabbit:
Ahhh... Now that's cute, warm and fuzzy.

Explosives in a children's candy factory?
Nothing to see here:
BAGHDAD - U.S. and Iraqi forces on Tuesday raided a lollipop factory being used to make bombs, finding boxes of explosives and two tons of fertilizer in the basement of the facility in northern Iraq, an Iraqi officer said.
The entry room to the al-Arij factory was booby-trapped and the building was empty because the workers fled after apparently being tipped off to the raid, according to the officer, army commander Brig. Gen. Nour al-Din Hussein. He said an anti-aircraft gun was hidden on the roof.
Hussein, commander of Iraq’s 4th Brigade, said the Christian owner of the lollipop factory was killed three years ago. He said the facility was currently rented to people whom police refused to identify for security reasons.
The troops, who found candy boxes filled with explosives, oxygen cylinders and two tons of fertilizer in the basement, spent three hours destroying the payload in controlled blasts in an industrial area of Mosul, 225 miles northwest of Baghdad. Bodies are often found in the area, located in the city’s eastern section. The U.S. military said it was looking into the report.
The discovery illustrated the challenges faced by U.S. and Iraqi troops trying to stop the unrelenting violence even as militants consistently find new ways to thwart stepped-up security measures.

Being from the general area of this news story, I just had to post this:
Make love, not war: Pentagon considered bomb to turn enemy soldiers gay San Francisco, Ca. - The Pentagon confirmed to CBS affiliate KPIX-TV it considered a chemical weapon that would turn enemy troops gay.
A watchdog organization that tracks military spending first uncovered the strange military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.
It was part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons.
Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act reveal researchers wanted $7.5 million to develop the chemical weapon at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.
Edward Hammond of The Sunshine Project said, "The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soldiers to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistibly attractive to one another."
The proposal was considered in 19-94, but ultimatly rejected.
Notice under whose administration this was considered? I'm just sayin'...
My three-year-old, Connor, walks up to me halfway through breakfast and gets a look of consternation on his little face.
He says, "What's wrong with me?"
I choked back a laugh, and repeated his question, asking him what is wrong with him. He frowns, and says, "I dunno."
Then he hiccups.
"Oh," I say, "Do you have hiccups?"
He says, "Yeah," and goes back to finishing his breakfast.
Sometimes, he's just so serious!
Do people hate Katie Couric because she's a woman?
Leslie Moonves, CBS chief executive, on Tuesday suggested that sexist attitudes were partly to blame for the faltering performance of Katie Couric, the news anchor he recruited to the network with a $15m annual pay package.
“I’m sort of surprised by the vitriol against her. The number of people who don’t want news from a woman was startling,” Mr Moonves said of the audience’s reaction to Ms Couric, who this month brought ratings for the CBS Evening News to a 20-year low.
The lack of interest couldn't be that folks are sick of the blatantly leftist slant to what is supposed to be news, huh?
The funniest thing is, she's managed only a paltry two percent increase in female viewership.
I guess women are sexist against women, too. I'm sure that sexism will be to blame when Shrillary doesn't get elected as well...

Does Jesus want you to be rich in the world, or rich in the soul?
From this source:
SOWETO, South Africa (Reuters Life!) - Jesus wants you to drive a brand new Nissan Navara 4x4. He'd also like you to live in a classy house, use the latest cell phone and wear the snappiest designer clothes.
That was the message from a recent Sunday sermon at the new Soweto branch of Brazil's huge Pentecostal-style Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG).
UCKG is expanding fast in Africa and bills its gleaming new cathedral in Soweto -- which seats 8,000 and has room for hundreds of plush cars in its vast underground car park -- as the biggest church on the continent.
UCKG's "prosperity gospel" message, which tells members to expect financial blessings from God as long as they give "sacrificially" when the collection plate comes around, is proving a hit in the world's poorest continent.
And it holds special resonance for the faithful of Soweto -- a sprawling township once gripped by violence and poverty and now home to a burgeoning black middle class.
"God doesn't want you to be poor and ashamed -- he wants you to drive a new car," the preacher at the new Soweto church yelled into a microphone, to delighted whoops from thousands.
I would be terrified if I went to this church! I agree that you are mandated to give selflessly, but it isn't selfless if you expect a huge personal gain.
I seem to remember a verse that talked about NOT storing up riches in this world...
From this source:
Membership in the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has declined more than 90 percent since the 2001 terrorist attacks, Audrey Hudson will report in Tuesday's editions of The Washington Times.
According to tax documents obtained by The Times, the number of reported members spiraled down from more than 29,000 in 2000 to less than 1,700 in 2006, a loss of membership that caused the Muslim rights group's annual income from dues to drop from $732,765 in 2000, when yearly dues cost $25, to $58,750 last year, when the group charged $35.
Read the whole thing... CAIR of course objects, saying that they've opened we offices, ect... But to my mind, the numbers just don't lie.
I love irony... It's just so darn ironic!

I've got another amusing puppy story...
So there we are, Mr. NeoCon driving the car, the kids in the back, and the puppy sitting on my lap after visiting the vet yesterday for his next-to-last round of puppy vaccinations, when I get a very sudden, very warm feeling on my chest and lap...
The puppy barfed on me.
Not to get too awfully graphic, but the reason for the barfing was evident in the stomach contents: a lot of long bird feathers.
Luckily, being a mother of three means that I had a spare shirt in the trunk, so Hubby pulled over at a gas station and took command of the puppy. Much to my dismay, the station had no public restrooms, but the attendant took pity on me upon seeing the state of my shirt, and let me use the employee restroom. LOL!
We got home for additional cleaning up, and hubby canvassed the back yard for any bird wreckage, and found none. The only thing we can figure is that, at a mere 11 weeks old, Ivan managed to sneak up on a bird and tear out his tail feathers before he escaped.
That's my little killer!
From this source:
"I think we've got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq," Lieberman said. "And to me, that would include a strike over the border into Iran, where we have good evidence that they have a base at which they are training these people coming back into Iraq to kill our soldiers."
"We've said so publicly that the Iranians have a base in Iran at which they are training Iraqis who are coming in and killing Americans. By some estimates, they have killed as many as 200 American soldiers," Lieberman said. "Well, we can tell them we want them to stop that. But if there's any hope of the Iranians living according to the international rule of law and stopping, for instance, their nuclear weapons development, we can't just talk to them."
He added, "If they don't play by the rules, we've got to use our force, and to me, that would include taking military action to stop them from doing what they're doing."
Lieberman said much of the action could probably be done by air, although he would leave the strategy to the generals in charge. "I want to make clear I'm not talking about a massive ground invasion of Iran," Lieberman said.
"They can't believe that they have immunity for training and equipping people to come in and kill Americans," he said. "We cannot let them get away with it. If we do, they'll take that as a sign of weakness on our part and we will pay for it in Iraq and throughout the region and ultimately right here at home."
And on an aside, it seems that about forty states are reporting unexpected budget SURPLUSES.
Guess what folks? That doesn't mean the government is doing a really good job with your money... It means you're being grossly overtaxed and/or they're cooking the books!

The hubby and I have secured babysitting for all three kids and dogs, and will be spending all afternoon and evening out by ourselves for the first time since... Well, since I don't remember when!
The coup de grace of our excursion: Two tickets to see Glenn Beck live at Columbus,OH tonight!
Well, we're back, and had an absolute blast!
I don't think we've had any time away from the kids since right after Christmas, and we had twelve hours of couple time on Friday! We had dinner before the show, walked around the state building in Columbus, and then literally across the street to the theatre! After that we stopped for a drink and dessert.
Glenn was hilarious! He put on a two-hour comedy routine that had me laughing to the point of making little squeaky noises.
At the end of the show, Glenn brought out a tee shirt that had the image of Al Gore made to look like the infamous Che shirt. Unfortunately, he can't sell them due to copyright infringement. (It seems that Che's family is just a little more capitalist than he was...)
He tossed a few out into the audience, and although we had good seats, we were a bit too far back for one. Darn it.
If any of you ever have the opportunity to see Beck live, DO IT! It's worth every single cent!

Look at what a reminder the Earth has given us.
From this source:
GAS workers in Ukraine uncovered a mass grave dating from World War II that could contain up to 5000 Jewish victims of the Nazis.
The grave was discovered last month as workers were digging to lay a gas line in the village of Gvozdovka, about 300km from Kiev, said Roman Chvartsman, the head of the former ghetto prisoners association.
According to first estimates and based on accounts from several local people, it could contain up to 5000 bodies of Ukranian and Moldavian Jews executed by the Nazis in 1941, Mr Chvartsman said.
Ukraine has more than 300 common graves in the former ghettos and Nazi concentration camps, but Mr Chvartsman said the newly discovered grave does not feature on official records.
Opec secretary general Abdalla El-Badri said moves to use biofuels would make his members consider cutting investment in new oil production, the FT said.
President Bush says the US will cut petrol use by 20% in 10 years, partly through increased use of biofuels.
Opec members control about 40% of the world's oil production.
Mr El-Badri said that while Opec members had so far maintained their investment plans, he added: "If we are unable to see a security of demand... we may revisit investment in the long term."
If liberals want to attack "Big Oil," I would suggest they start here. This is a threat by OPEC to keep everything staus quo.
If we are serious about alternative fuels, we'd better go full bore into switching over.
Welcome to Britainistan...
Mufti Abdul Barkatullah, a former imam at the Finchley mosque in northwest London, said: “Parents who name their son Muhammad believe that the name has an effect on their personality and future characteristics. They are saying that this boy will be of good character.
“Some people may not really understand the history of the Prophet Muhammad and the name but they still want the association so they can be recognised as one of his followers.
That's great, huh?
In fact, just the opposite may be true:
Growing numbers of hurricanes battering the United States and the Caribbean have made their presence felt in the past decade and are forecast to worsen. Global warming has been cited as a possible cause but researchers looking at sediment and coral deposits have now identified natural variations in their frequency.
Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans in 2005, was “unexceptional” when historic patterns of such stormy weather are analysed, they suggested.
Global warming may even have been responsible for unusually low levels of hurricanes in the 25 years before 1995 when the number began rising, according to the scientists, led by the Geological Survey of Sweden.
Using deposits trapped in sediment to indicate when hurricanes had taken place, the researchers built up a record detailing their number and frequency going back 270 years.
They found that the decline in hurricanes during the 1970s and 1980s was matched by similar declines in the past, indicating natural variations in the weather patterns.
So weather phenomena is cyclic? Who'd have thunk it?
Perhaps the recent increase in the frequency and intensity of hurricanes is a direct result of the gale force bull crap coming from the "climate change" freaks and their Supreme Leader, Al Gore...

MONTPELIER, Vt. - At Riverwalk Records, the all-vinyl record store just down the street from the state Capitol, the black "US Out of Vt.!" T-shirts are among the hottest sellers.
But to some people in Vermont, the idea is bigger than a $20 novelty. They want Vermont to secede from the United States - peacefully, of course.
Disillusioned by what they call an empire about to fall, a small cadre of writers and academics is plotting political strategy and planting the seeds of separatism.
They’ve published a "Green Mountain Manifesto" subtitled "Why and How Tiny Vermont Might Help Save America From Itself by Seceding from the Union." They hope to put the question before citizens at Town Meeting Day next March, eventually persuading the state Legislature to declare independence, returning Vermont to the status it held from 1777 to 1791.
"The argument for secession is that the U.S. has become an empire that is essentially ungovernable- it’s too big, it’s too corrupt and it no longer serves the needs of its citizens," said Rob Williams, editor of Vermont Commons, a quarterly newspaper dedicated to secession.
"Congress and the executive branch are being run by the multinationals. We have electoral fraud, rampant corporate corruption, a culture of militarism and war. If you care about democracy and self-governance and any kind of representative system, the only constitutional way to preserve what’s left of the Republic is to peaceably take apart the empire."
I wish these folks well; they are 100% correct in their assessment of the unaccountability of the Federal government.
The people's backs are burdened under a heavy tax yolk, and Shrillary is preaching communism from the pulpit of her office. Bush wants to give our nation away to illegal aliens, and flip off the real Americans while doing it.
Heck, I wish I could join the secessionists; I hear Vermont is lovely, especially this time of year!
YouTube of real 911 call. News story to follow:
Police officer who baked brownies laced with pot avoids criminal charges
DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — A police officer will avoid criminal charges despite admitting he took marijuana from criminal suspects and, with his wife, baked it into brownies.
The police department's decision not to pursue a case against former Cpl. Edward Sanchez left a bad taste in the mouth of at least one city official, who vowed to investigate.
"If you're a cop and you're arresting people and you're confiscating the marijuana and keeping it yourself, that's bad. That's real bad," said City Councilman Doug Thomas.
Sanchez, who resigned last year from the department in this Detroit suburb, declined comment Wednesday to the Detroit Free Press. Police Cmdr. Jeff Geisinger did not return calls seeking comment.
The department's investigation began with a 911 call from Sanchez's home on April 21, 2006. On a 5-minute tape of the call, obtained by the Free Press, Sanchez told an emergency dispatcher he thought he and his wife were overdosing on marijuana.
"I think we're dying," he said. "We made brownies and I think we're dead, I really do."
Sanchez later told police investigators that his wife took the marijuana out of his police vehicle while he was sleeping. In a subsequent interview, he admitted he got the marijuana out of the car himself and put it in the brownie mix, police said.
His wife also was not charged.

Earlier, one of the kids had stepped on (or did something slightly more destructive to) one of the floor vent covers, breaking it. I took the a vent cover out of our bedroom to replace the broken one until a new cover could be purchased.
With the kids in bed, my hubby had just spent the last two hours cleaning the basement, and I, doing little things here and there around the house. No one was really paying much attention to what our cat, Jack was doing.
Dave heard a couple of thumps, and asked if I had something large in the dryer.
Then it occurred to me. The cat was in the air ducts.
Dave sweet-talked him out, and he was covered in filthy dust. Who needs to hire a duct sweeper when you've got a feline in your employ, right?
Jack tried to run past me, but fortunately I caught him, and put him straight in the tub.
A wet cat is not a happy cat. I'll bet we have an impressive hairball in the floor by morning...
Does anyone else have a good cat or dog (or hamster) story?
Excerpted from this source:
(All bold type mine.)
NEW YORK - Federal authorities said a plot by a suspected Muslim terrorist cell to blow up John F. Kennedy International Airport, its fuel tanks and a jet fuel artery could have caused "unthinkable" devastation.
But while pipeline and security experts agreed that such an attack would have crippled America's economy, particularly the airline industry, they said it probably would not have led to significant loss of life as intended.
Ladies and gentlemen, we'd better start watching for economic attack! Even a few petty assaults could lead to financial devastation.
Authorities announced Saturday they had broken up the suspected terrorist cell, arresting three men, one of them a former member of Guyana's parliament. A fourth man was being sought in Trinidad as part of the plot that authorities said they had been tracking for more than a year and was foiled in the planning stages.
"The devastation that would be caused had this plot succeeded is just unthinkable," U.S. Attorney Roslynn R. Mauskopf said at a news conference, calling it "one of the most chilling plots imaginable."
In an indictment charging the four men, one of them is quoted as saying the foiled plot would "cause greater destruction than in the Sept. 11 attacks," destroying the airport, killing several thousand people and destroying parts of New York's borough of Queens, where the pipeline runs underground.
I would like to know why we're trying these guys in court instead of giving them a one-way ticket to Club Gitmo.
Authorities said Kadir and Nur were longtime associates of a Trinidadian radical Muslim group, Jamaat al Muslimeen, which launched an unsuccessful rebellion in 1990 that left 24 dead.
Phone calls to Yasin Abu Bakr, the radical group's leader, went unanswered Saturday.
He wasn't home, naturally. Puh-leease. Instead of calling this vicious killer for comment, maybe we could send an military unit to his house.
Isha Kadir, the Guyanese suspect's wife, said her husband flew from Guyana to Trinidad on Thursday. She said he was arrested Friday as he was boarding a flight from Trinidad to Venezuela, where he planned to pick up a travel visa to attend an Islamic religious conference in Iran.
Hmm... Venezuela, Iran? I'm glad to see all of our friends are here.
Thank goodness that this operation was stopped before it came to fruition.

Well, at least the leftists ones are.
As heard on Glenn Beck this morning, the teenage Seattle band Blubird has created a song about global warming which rivals Al Gore for misinformation.
Now, try to calm down...
Glenn Beck Insider Payallin has created a video answer to these leftards in training:
Why? Donor umbrage at Bush's amnesty plan!
"Every donor in 50 states we reached has been angry, especially in the last month and a half, and for 99 percent of them immigration is the No. 1 issue," a fired phone-bank employee told the Washington Times.
"Last year, my solicitations totaled $164,000, and this year the way they were running for the first four months, they would total $100,000 by the end of 2007," another fired phone-bank employee who asked not to be identified told the paper.
Of course, the RNC claims that their donations haven't dropped off at all, and that the employees were fired because the phone bank equipment is outdated and too expensive to replace.
I guess that happens when your base is too pissed off to give you one red cent.
We all heard the President's glaring disrespect for us when he said this:
"And my answer to the skeptics is: Give us a chance to fix the problems in a comprehensive way that enforces our border and treats people with decency and respect," the president said.
"Give us a chance to fix this problem. Don't try to kill this bill before it gets moving."
Um... Senor Presidente, we have been giving the government a chance! When does it end?!?
I would humbly suggest that the RNC call these folks up and see if they're willing to donate:
After all, they're getting almost exactly what they want.
