B3 campaign note: Durst is right: there are no real Republican candidates and there is no president for them to fall back on except Reagan. I think the Republicans made a terrible mistake when they left Cheney on the ticket, probably the worst vice president since Aaron Burr, and the kind of bull who carries his own china closet around with him. They should have kicked him off the ticket four years ago and put in the most electable candidate they could find to run as vice president and emerging presidential candidate. Those mistakes are fatal in politics. Read more »
My furry fourlegged friend is a 17-year-old former dog clothing model and lives in a loft in NYC (the bitch made it as a model in Manhattan and left me behind! America's Top Meanie!) Back when she was young, we'd huddle together, homeless, in shells of buildings in Detroit and Pontiac, MI.

Um excuse me: I suppose it's news that the guys who were mauled by Tatiana the tiger were standing on a rail and yelling at her, but that's not exactly an excuse for what happened. The animals at the zoo aren't supposed to get out. Period.
It's terrible that people taunt the animals, but they do, and they have, and they will -- and if the zoo pens and cages can't hold the animals anyway, there's a real problem.
BTW, it was highly unlikely that "taunting" got the tiger agitated. Read more »
All right, I’m giving some heads up time here so you can plan your weekend accordingly: Dolly Parton turns 62 this Saturday, Jan. 19. Oh, the possibilities for celebration are endless, aren’t they? Maybe a spin of her 1971 classic Coat of Many Colors (RCA), or how about slappin’ 9 to 5 (oh, my sweet baby Jesus, so that flick is really from 1980?! Read more »
Technology turns me on. Which is not to say I’m a gadget geek – far from it. In fact, the most advanced piece of equipment I own is a first generation miniPod my ex-boyfriend gave me. But I do think there’s something inherently sexy about Technology with a capital T – all those big, pulsing brains working and sweating late into the night, over and over, to create objects that are not only useful, but also beautiful. And the objects themselves – sleek, smooth, and often warm and humming. Read more »
