Hump Day afternoon

Up a little late last night watching Escape from LA, with one of our favorite antiheroes, so I was late rising this morning. Not that there's a reason for me to be up at a normal hour these days. :( Anyway, the second Escape movie is nice eye candy, formulaic fun, and that's about it. It was worth the rental charge.

One of the common slams on Wal-mart is that it generates obese rednecks by its very presence. Professor Art Carden of Rhodes College says it ain't so. In fact, Wal-mart may in fact be making people a little bit thinner by making non-fattening food less expensive. RTWT.

Via cipherpunk: "A Conspiracy of Euphemism". We're not supposed to be afraid of these pendejos, we're supposed to be putting the fear of Allah into them. Journalists being solicitous of their tender feelings ain't helping.
WTF

Okay, this is weird

In today's mail, I got a notice from the Postal Inspectors notifying me that they have some of my mail, which they're holding on to because they think somebody may have stolen some of my other mail. WTF. Like anybody ever sends me anything worth stealing? Come to think of it, they do, but they always send that stuff Fedex or UPS. So I guess I'll find out what I'm missing whenever it is they're done busting and jailing the loser who swiped my Jockey catalogs, or whatever it was that I haven't missed until now.
