    Good.
    Please send Robin to stick a wad of his bubble gum into that bullet hole in the US Airways jet.
    The pilot has finished his martini and wants to go now.

    He's still tired.
    Let him sleep a little longer, then take him to Starbucks. Their espresso is as good as his work ethic.

      It's ok, I think it was raven who suggested that it may be some one near the airport doing target practice , The extreemist shoot to kill , not practice.

      Beautiful "Eagle Ray"

    A guy went to the gas chamber about 50 years ago for sending his mother off on a plane with a bomb in her suitcase. You know what happened to the plane.
    I wonder what penalty that guy would get today.

    Something deep inside me would absolutely prevent my using an airplane for target practice.

    Concerning the story about the girl not being allowed back into the US, if she is not a leagal citizen of this country then she should'nt be allowed to enter. And as for her parents, if they are not leagal then they should have to go. There are way,way too many illeagals in our country as it is!! The gov of this country has dropped the ball on secureing our borders from unwanted and freeloading immigrents as it is.. (Gov. Jan Brewer of Ariz. has the right idea!!!) (OBAMA SECURE OUR BORDERS).

    It's astounding to me that in this century humans are still stoned to death, and I don't need another lesson from any writer telling me that the Prophet modified his teaching on stoning. Stoning is still in the Koran. If the Prophet lightened up on it later, edit a new version for this century.

    Hey, pretty pessimistic, Popeye! There's always a little good stuff to find on TV. I try to focus on that.
    Now what happened good today–oh, I bought London Broil on sale. (Not Sharia slaughtered–that's cruel.)
