An embarrassment for whom?

What is Vincente Fox talking about?

Mexico’s president sharply criticized President Bush’s signing Thursday of a bill to build 700 miles of additional fencing on its southern border, calling the move an “embarrassment.”

The only embarrassment, President Fox, is that your country is so corrupt that your people can’t make a living in your country, so they must go to other countries like the United States. Worse is that a large portion of your fellow countrymen ignore laws here that you uphold far more vigorously in Mexico, and yet you do nothing. You are an immigration hypocrite as well. Don’t think so? Why don’t we discuss immigration on your southern border for a moment. How’s that Guatemala border treating you? Or should I ask how you’re treating those braceros?

Talk about embarrassing.

The definition of a “kill-joy”

Terrible

It may be the season for vampires, ghosts and zombies. Just remember, they’re not real, warns physicist Costas Efthimiou.  Obviously, you might say. But Efthimiou, a professor at the University of Central Florida, points to surveys that show American gullibility for the supernatural. 

I lean towards the “ghosts exist” side, but I don’t have a problem with doing studies like this.  I do, however, have a problem with reporting on this kind of study leading up to Halloween .   Who stole your bag of candy as a kid?  Terrible angle on the Halloween story, guys.  What’s next? Proof Santa can’t get down chimneys?  You don’t have to believe in ghosts and ghouls, but please, don’t ruin it for everyone else.

Thank you.

Sanity prevails (for now)

Interesting

A Danish court on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit filed by Muslim organizations against the newspaper that first published the Prophet Muhammad cartoons that touched off protests in the Islamic world.

Nice to see that someone is standing up to the “faux offended”.

I enjoyed that one, why didn’t you?

It’s come to be known as Hugh Hewitt‘ s lament

The Drive refers to the January 11, 1987 AFC Championship Game between the Denver Broncos and the Cleveland Browns. Broncos quarterback John Elway, in a span of 5 minutes and 2 seconds, led his team 98 yards to tie the game with 37 seconds left in regulation. Denver won the game in overtime with a field goal, 23-20.  The 98-yard drive ranks as pro football’s prototype performance in the clutch. Elway and his team spanned almost all of the 100 yard football field.

I enjoyed that game for a whole two weeks….until the Super Bowl.
