Is it just that the Chinese are greedy and profit driven or are they actively trying to poison kids? I don't know what the hell is going on with Canada. Every kid who gets mesothelioma from this will be able to sue, at least.

"Of course I never say never, so I'm not saying no, but my fear would be to open something like that up again, to only end it again," she added.
The day will come when she will be begging Joss Whedon for a Buffy movie. And he'll say no, because she will be too damn old. She's starting to look as leathery and dry as Sharon Stone.

You know this means that they'll be divorced soon, don't ya? It's like getting a tattoo of your bf/gf's name. It curses the relationship.
I bet Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder still have their tattoos.

local: "A Madison police officer was issued a letter of reprimand this month for zapping the officer's own hand with a Taser, inadvertently sending a massive jolt of electricity through the officer's body, police disclosed today. The incident happened on July 31 when the officer, whose name and gender were not disclosed, discharged the non-lethal weapon during a checkout procedure. According to a summary of the investigation issued by Lt. Kristen Roman of the Professional Standards and Internal Affairs office, officers are required to make sure that no air cartridge is loaded before testing the Taser gun, which is done at the start of each shift."
If they were being fair they would have taken him into custody where he would have somehow beat himself up.

Wow! What a coincidence! The gas supply is already bottlenecked by the refineries. They say that's why gas is so high.
It's just an amazing run of bad luck that they now have to reduce gas production and raise prices.
Those poor gas companies. They must be going broke, oh, wait...
Nick Coleman: After 30 years, Taco Bell didn't even offer her any hot sauce: "Shilson thinks her dismissal was engineered in order to get rid of a veteran worker whose base salary was $45,000. 'I bawled for three days after I got fired,' she says. 'I was the most loyal, dedicated employee they could have. In 30 years, I never called in sick or was late to work. Not once! And I was good at my job. Damn good.'"
Plus, she was close to retirement. They don't want to pay that.
I hate how these big companies think they can screw over everyone.
Rainbows, on 10th December. Coincidentally
an expensive box set and USB stick of all
six of their previous albums is being
released on the same day by EMI. Of course,
this has nothing to do with Radiohead's
decision not to re-sign with EMI at the end of
their contract. The label wouldn't be running
a spoiler against the band just because they
went out on their own, would they?
Just goes to show you that the record companies are actually the big thieves, not the downloaders.

Police discover Mafia's 'Ten Commandments' after arresting Godfather | the Daily Mail:
1. No one can present himself directly to another of our friends. There must be a third person to do it.
2. Never look at the wives of friends.
3. Never be seen with cops.
4. Don't go to pubs and clubs.
5. Always be available for Cosa Nostra, even if your wife's about to give birth.
6. Appointments must be respected.
7. Wives must be treated with respect.
8. When asked for any information, the answer must be the truth.
9. Money cannot be appropriated if it belongs to others or to other families.
10. People who can't be part of Cosa Nostra are anyone with a close relative in the police, with a two-timing relative in the family, anyone who behaves badly and doesn't hold to moral values.

Zapped: Why did police Taser 82-year-old grandma? :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Mary Mitchell: "According to a police source, when officers arrived, Fletcher was 'swinging a hammer' and becoming 'increasingly violent.' When Fletcher failed to stop as ordered, an officer discharged a Taser. Also, it's worth noting that Fletcher hasn't been charged with violating any laws. 'The matter is being looked into by the Office of Professional Standards, and the Chicago Police Department will also be reviewing the matter to determine if procedures were followed,' a police spokesman said."
And, of course, they will find that the officers did nothing wrong. They never do. They are perfect little angels that never do anything wrong.
The old woman is lucky they didn't just shoot her in the face, then sprinkle crack on her body and say she pulled a gun.
Are there any standards at all about who can become a cop? Do you just have to have a bad attitude, a crewcut and a steroid connection?
Dunn also said he could not exactly recall what he said to the woman, but said he was "sure it was very inappropriate, because I do that kind of thing." He also acknowledged it could have been interpreted as sexual harassment.
"I was a little bit upset about something that had happened a little earlier in the day. I was a little sharp with this young lady, and I shouldn't have been," Dunn said.
Dunn also told The Columbian of Vancouver that he couldn't recall exactly what he said to the woman, but that it was along the lines of "I bought you a drink because I want to take you home," the newspaper reported."
I'm just amazed that it was to a woman who was of legal age. Usually Republicans only do that sort of thing to young boys. He should get an award or something.

He may not know it but there was a whorehouse like that in William S Gibson's Neuromancer.
