Read These Now Before Genome Jettison Destroys Health Care

Tonight is the premiere of Torchwood:Children of Earth on BBC America. BBCA has the most horrid commercial interruptions. A character could be in mid-sentence and BBCA cuts to a commercial. GO AMERICA! Bully for BBCA for that Ianto/Jack embrace on the front page though. I already watched it. If you want spoilers I posted some screencaps. I thought about making some higher resolution screencaps, but I am a sloth. Maybe tomorrow. Or if I have sufficient Champagne.

While I spent my day making egg rolls, the world continued to revolve. Now I have to open Google Reader and see what distressing antics my fellow humans performed. Bully for me! Where's the Champagne? I need some optimism.

"Many Democrats outside of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Waxman cabal know that voters won't stand for these kinds of foolish prescriptions for our health care. We do too. That's why Republicans will stop at nothing to remind voters about the risky experimentation going on in Washington." O' those cabals! With my premiums, give me some of that SOCIALISM. Ham and cheese too. Oh bully! Michael Steele is on Hardballz. I'm not listenin'. I'm readin'.

How is my day not complete without reading Christian Newswire? Health care reform will provide abortions for all.
Some journalists have written casually that the bills "do not mention" abortion.

Dr. Ron Paul: Healthcare Is Not A Right! Uh-huh. We are all gonna die while bother.

All this health readin' is going drive me to drink. Oops.

"Fisk University in Nashville may be able to sell some of its 101-piece Georgia O'Keeffe art collection, an appeals court judge ruled, finding that the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum has no right to intervene in the sale."

Do Contaminants Play a Role in Diabetes?

The most important story of the day: Sarah Palin's hairdresser twittered, unlike what the NY Times wrote, that almost former Gov. Palin's hair is not, repeat, not thinning.

I need to freshen my cocktail now and call my hairdresser.
