Implementing some of curtalfriar’s menu suggestions (over at Fountain Abbey).  Mmmm-mmmm!

Speakin’ of world of hurt, I do believe nerves on the right side of my neck have regenerated.  I’ve stuck it out for a while now and am finding it verrrrry hard to cope with what the little mother****ers are doing to me.

Going to set up another procedure.  Looks like c4-c7 on the right side as everything from the mid shoulderblade to base of skull is conspiring to make life difficult.  So we go in, turn on the RF and smoke ’em.  I SO DON’T WANT TO DO THIS.  But after a while your back is to a wall and you gotta do something.  I’ve just spent the last few days curled up with my forehead on my desk, which is a sign that something probably can be improved.

\partial geek put this up:

Is that not *beautiful*???

A river of tears…

“Hundreds of thousands of [illegal immigrants] now live in Arizona but … many no longer feel welcome.” –CBS anchor Katie Couric

Wow, that load there weighed in at 3.7 Courics (about 9.25 lbs).

And you can’t get a lot stupider than this:

“I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country” –MSNBC host Contessa Brewer on the Times Square attempted bomber

Yeah, I know, Contessa – it would have been so much better for people to have been blown up by a Western nut-job.  They would have appreciated the distinction, too.

When the Chief Exec of BP starts mouthing off to the American people he’s shown that it is time for them to step aside in this country and let others take their place.

Mr Hayward reiterated a promise that BP “will honour all legitimate claims for business interruption”. Asked for examples of illegitimate claims, he said: “I could give you lots of examples. This is America — come on. We’re going to have lots of illegitimate claims. We all know that.”

Europeans generally are all too willing to act superior and sneer down their noses – that is, until they need help.

He urged the US Government to pursue a policy of “absolute co-operation” with BP. “We will only succeed if we work together,” he said — a day after President Obama’s press secretary promised that the White House would “keep a boot to the throat of BP” to ensure that it fulfilled its responsibilities.

Why do we have a news media (and authorities) that continually strive to help the enemy?

Doyle declined to indicate what material Shahzad should have used to detonate the device he allegedly  packed in an SUV in the middle of Times Square.

“As a member of this community,” I don’t want to teach them how to correct it,” Doyle said.

Well, the article certainly points them in the right direction.  And the fact that you’re telling them that there’s something they’re doing wrong is… well… wrong.

If I was a general in WWII and I went on the air and said “I think the Germans made a big mistake in using tanks in such-and-such pass against our armored dweeblefitzers” then wouldn’t I have just given information to the enemy?  Why is that so different here?

Yes, I know all this information is easily gotten from other sources but apparently it’s not getting to a number of folks if they’re using the wrong shit.  Why even give them a morsel?
