Scientists: Weather extremes consistent with global warming — Uh oh. USA Today signs on to liberal fearmongering. Al Gore must have sent them a horse’s head. Where are the 101st Fighting Keyboarders when you need them? Where have you gone Rush Limbaugh, the nation turns its lonely eyes to you?

mabfan tells us he's thinking of getting a shirt made from the Jewish tartan. I suggested a Utilikilt. I don't think he's buying. Myself I'm delighted; haven't decided whether or not I'm going to indulge or not.

Not a Utilikilt. They don't do plaids. Plaids don't fit their patten scaling math, because they're a fixed size.

Try 21st Century Kilts.

It sounds as though Senator Obama, even though he is Christian, was raised with a more Buddhist mind set.

Al Gore and the Horse's Head needs to be a book.
