Happy Mardi Gras

Bush denies Iraq is headed for Civil War, as Iraq heads for Civil War.

At least 60 people were killed in sectarian violence in Baghdad today.

Asked what Washington would do if civil war broke out, Bush said in the ABC interview: "I don't buy your premise that there's going to be a civil war."

Now, in a normal world, the reporter would have said, "Sir, that was not my premise. It was a hypothetical question, as indicated by the word 'if'."

Bush would then have been pelted mercilessly with rotten meat for, oh, let's say 6 years. Then he'd be impeached with extreme prejudice and forced to be a Wal-Mart associate for the rest of his life (where he'd be subject to daily rotten meat peltings by the citizenry).

I know, I know, I'm letting him off easy. I'm not a monster.

Meanwhile, at CNN, the word 'Iraq' appears on their homepage only once, in a link to a video clip titled "Mardi Gras in Iraq."

Best Buy Receipt Check

A great story from die.net about that irritating little policy big-box electronics retailers have of stopping you to check your receipt when you leave the store.

Turns out, they have no right to do so.

Of course, very few people would challenge this policy, even if they knew they could because we've been so very well trained to tolerate such crap in the name of "convenience" and "not making a scene."

Same thing with commercials before movies you paid $10 for, and when video stores would charge you if you didn't rewind their tapes.

I say make a scene. Screw the bastards.

The Wheels of Justice

Noted for your amusement: State troopers in the Baltimore airport ride Segways.

I'm not saying this begins to make up for no posts in nearly 3 weeks, I'm just saying it's funny.
