Q. What's worse than hearing that Led Zeppelin - currently the only band in the history of recorded music to not make a late-career, ill-advised, disappointing comeback - is planning on making a late-career, ill-advised, disappointing comeback?
A. That they're doing so with a singer who is very obviously not Robert Plant.
Q. OK, what's worse than that?
Sen.Obama spent 4 million dollars to run one of the most
expensive political ads in tv history. Yes, he ran a one-half
hour prime time infomercial on networks across the country
on 10/29 including NBC, CBS, Fox, MSNBC, BET, Univision

I don't know about you, but I'm excited, more excited than I've ever been to cover a football game. I've covered state championship games (the last three SCISAA Class 2-A title games, in fact), college bowl games, and more high school rivalry games than you can shake a stick at, but I've never looked forward to a game more than tonight's matchup.

"I resolved to compensate myself somewhat for the lonely week that had passed and saddled the old mule and struck out for Haig Point Lighthouse. The day was fine and I enjoyed the ride very much. Was kindly received by Lighthouse Keeper Mr. Comer and his wife. We sat and talked for some little time and was most pleasantly surprised by the entrance of a lovely young lady wearing sweet perfume, Miss Maggie the daughter of the old folks." ....John Michael Doyle, Bloody Point Lighthouse Keeper

No one needs a 2,000-pound pumpkin. No one. Such massive pumpkins are absurd and unnatural and freaky-looking, and good news only if you're part of the powerful international lobby Big Pie.
"In this disturbing video, the potential problems voting machines could cause on Election Day is seen in stark light."
"While the Republicans had the distracted media searching for links between Obama and ACORN, RNC operatives were busily completing one of the most massive voter suppression and purging efforts in American history, stealing hundreds of thousands of Democratic votes across the embattled swing states and striving to arrange chaos and endless lines at the voting booths next week...
