This Toronto event from last weekend made it to the news in South Carolina (got a panicked call from a friend). Big explosion at a propane depot, two deaths, mass evacuation of residents. Video here and articles here.

This week, Condelieeza Rice said ""This is not 1968 ... where Russia can threaten a neighbor, occupy a capital, overthrow a government and get away with it". Really?? You can't just waltz in, occupy a country, overthrow a government and get away with it? Oh, sorry. Russia can't. Nevermind!

My home country was occupied by the Nazis during

The Yes Dance. Fork in the garbage disposal!! (NSFW).

The fifteen most sexist commercials of daytime TV. Am I the only one who’s tired of the same old crap being perpetuated?? Women aren’t manipulative sirens from a tender age (#15), men are capable of cooking a meal (#8) and…. Just… sigh.
