…running into a burning building to try to save a neighbor. She ended up missing him but only a foot or two and ended up with lung damage, however it is a proud story and it is no less proud now that she is 84.

I suspect if she acted in the way the police did here she would have 40 years of guilt instead.

There is nothing sadder than watching one of the father’s of all cultures commit suicide.

… don’t worry. In my opinion people who are going to be hit by this are the same people who will be hit by a dozen other virus due to unsafe practices.

The thing to do is not to worry on one day of the year, it is to be careful on the net as a normal way of acting and then the “big virus release day” will be just another day.

So don’t open unsolicited e-mails, ignore items that are forwarded a million times, beware of stuff like limewire and don’t be sharing files or passing around stuff, and be careful on the net where you surf.

The basic stuff hasn’t changed it just is stuff that people don’t want to do.

Apparently former speaker Newt Gingrich will convert to Catholicism during holy week. A very good move in my opinion of course but I would stress what I’ve always said the reason to become Catholic is because it’s true.

The Huffington Post being the Huffington post makes fun of the conversion and the forgiveness of sins. That’s fine, forgiveness? People need it, we do it. If you guys are interested in it give the church a call. If you are willing to come we are willing to forgive, that’s part of God’s modus operandi.

as if they were serious. These clowns protest every economic summit that isn’t held in a country that will crack down (ie china). You have a group of professional protesters and hangers on. Why they treat them as serious I don’t know.

But wasn’t the great power of the love of Obama supposed to cause this stuff to not happen anymore, shouldn’t they be dropping flowers?

And I don’t know what Barnicle has against bloggers but that is one bug he needs to remove from his posterior.

7:39 a.m. These guys are as surprised as I am over Stevens.

7:41 a.m. It is April fools day so we have to be careful on this, but people needs to learn to be polite.

7:47 a.m. Willie asks the why are they protesting Barak the good and is told what I’ve already said, these guys are just background noise.

8:11 a.m. Matthews talks about Reagan as a reader, he never talked like that when he was in the White House.

8:13 a.m. The desire to pretend that George Bush wasn’t a reader and thinker overrides any kind of reality.

8:25 a.m. It is amazing to hear so much BS concerning Israel and Syria at one time. Hamas won? Only an idiot like this guy could say that.

8:28 a.m. Oh boy this guy reveals that Clinton saved the head of Hamas’ life, what a joy. Another reason to love him.

8:36 a.m. If Mark is singing Wooley Booley that is just as interesting as the financial news.

8:53 a.m. Another reason to love Alyssa Milano. Let me stress that Baseball is the most perfect sport there has ever been.

who noticed that she is still out there defending communists:

When it is suggested that the Kremlin was involved in the assassination of journalists, including Putin critic Anna Politskaya, she shakes her head and tell Scarborough that the “rot started in Chechnya.” One reporter for Novoya Gazeta, a paper vanden Heuvel recently visited while in Moscow and holds up as an example of Russia’s free press, told Reuters that “prosecutors had tried to solve the case and were ordered to back off when the trail led to someone ‘quite high up in the ruling hierarchy.'” But when the deaths of journalist Anastasia Baburova and lawyer Stanislav Markelov are discussed, vanden Heuvel quickly assigns blame to “neo-Nazis,” though no arrests have been made in the case and many at Novoya Gazeta, where Baburova worked, suspect government involvement.

What people forget is the before the Soviet Union fell and the Venona files came out, intellectuals often spouted this nonsense, Kennedy, Biden et/al the worshiped senators/vp’s now where talking about working with or appeasing the Soviets. The press and the smart people hated Reagan for his willingness to stand up to Soviet Aggression. (At the time it was the one thing I agreed with him on.) After they came out they and the press conveniently forgot which side they had been on.

Expect a lot more of this stuff as these people are mainstreamed.

I owe Father Z a bit of thanks. After seeing that clip from Yes Prime Minister I looked for it on NetFlix and it turned out both full series are there.

For some inexplicable reason they are only available for streaming till tomorrow so I jumped in and watched the first 4 episodes. Being a political junkie I found them very funny (particularly “Big Brother”).

It is amazing how relevant a lot of this stuff is but more importantly it is funny. I strongly recommend you take a peek if you have Netflix and give it a chance, you’ll laugh and these days extra laughter sure can’t hurt.

6:01 a.m. Chrysler is gone says Mike

6:03 a.m. 12.3 Billion could have paid every American Mortgage

6:05 a.m. Both are going to be bankrupt in my opinion only our dough will have gone to people to grease stuff.

6:07 a.m. I don’t understand that Obama gets a pass on all of this stuff according to the polls. I’d be interested in how the question was asked.

6:21 a.m. Baby as an accessory for Madona?

6:32 a.m. They joke about Bibi moving in tanks, hey lets drop rockets on their studio and see what they do?

6:34 a.m. “30 years of incompetence” says Barnicle. Nobody mentions the Union contracts and how the auto makers in the south are doing fine.

6:35 a.m. Brown mentions the unions.

6:40 a.m. Joe is dying from laughter from this stuff on Glenn Beck, but they point out that they are talking about it. The Barnicle shot is VERY funny.

6:42 a.m. Monsters? Barnicle is having a ton of fun.

7:16 a.m. Mika objects to the idea of giving the customer what they want. Boy is that a reporter or not?

7:23 a.m. Did she report on any of Mrs. Clinton’s gaffes?

7:36 a.m. Gregory sounds a lot like Nigel Hawthorne in Yes Minister.

7:40 a.m. Is Washington more concerned with NY then the rest? DUH!

7:44 a.m. Nothing like a nothing burger.

7:52 a.m. Here comes the moderate Taliban myth.
