"The Newport-Mesa (California) Unified School District has banned a flier advertising an upcoming lecture by controversial author and commentator Eric Schlosser.
Jaime Castellanos, assistant superintendent of secondary education for the district, said he had ordered all middle schools and high schools not to display a flier promoting Schlosser's speech this Friday and Saturday as part of the Newport Beach Public Library's Distinguished Speakers Lecture Series. Schlosser, whose presentation is billed to center around his book "Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal," has written numerous articles and books advocating the decriminalization of marijuana."

Either they hold issue with the whole marijuana thing or they were gonna serve Big Mac's as appetizers OR they smoked too much 'mary wanna' and are now paranoid and feeling guilty because they just binged on Big Mac's in the midst of their paranoid high.
Bill Frist is still an ignorant asshole.
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is all but certain to press for a rule change that would ban filibusters of judicial nominations in the next few weeks, despite misgivings by some of his fellow Republicans and a possible Democratic backlash that could paralyze the chamber, close associates said yesterday.
Ass Romping link o' dee day-oh:
April 14, 2005 -- WHEN U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia spoke Tuesday night at NYU's Vanderbilt Hall, "The room was packed with some 300 students and there were many protesters outside because of Scalia's vitriolic dissent last year in the case that overturned the Texas law against gay sex," our source reports. "One gay student asked whether government had any business enacting and enforcing laws against consensual sodomy. Following Scalia's answer, the student asked a follow-up: 'Do you sodomize your wife?' The audience was shocked, especially since Mrs. Scalia [Maureen] was in attendance. The justice replied that the question was unworthy of an answer."
Not only is denial a river in Egypt, it can tickle your fancy if you so wish. :|
Michelle Malkin has a new fashion Line, LOL, kidding. But then again, if she hadn't felt it necessary to skewer the trend, I wouldn't have known this shit existed and besides I wouldn't be caught dead in a fashion t-shirt, well except for the "I do my own stunts" t-shirt my sister gave me.
Read political blogs? No?
Two-fifths of Americans who are online have read a political blog, and more than a quarter read them once a month or more, according to a recent Harris Interactive poll.
One fifth is Vodka, the other Scotch, and you have to drink'em if your going to read'em.
Those black-robed villains that James Dobson keeps getting mixed up with the Ku Klux Klan? Those constitutional rapists who won't let Tom DeLay take nest in your ass? Turns out they're mostly GOP appointees. "Republican appointees now constitute a majority of judges on 10 of the nation's 13 federal appeals courts."
BAM! The "I created you, I will destroy you" tactics of the right, passing the ASSHAT torch now.
