Is it just me, or does it seem as if Fox News has gone way, way, WAY overboard with its obsession over Natalee Holloway and the Duke lacrosse team rape accusation stories? I mean, for God sakes, certainly there are other more important stories out there. Aren’t there?

Actually, I’m amused at the entire mainstream media obsession with the Duke lacrosse story. Given the typical goings-on at any major college frat house and the fact that rapes on college campuses are not exactly a once -in-a-blue-moon thing, I have to believe the only reason the networks are hyping it is because there was a stripper involved. How stupid is that?

This whole Donald Rumsfeld-must-resign controversy smacks to me like a Democratic behind-the-scenes piling on / one- doth-protest-too-much kinda thing. Of course, there have been mistakes made in Iraq – as there undoubtedly are in any war, but as soon as I saw Gen. Wesley Clark‘s name associated with the list of former military demanding the Sec of Def step down – the same Wesley Clark who oversaw the tragic Waco assault on the Branch Davidians, the same Wesley Clark who, while running for President in 2004, advocated a position in favor of abortion up to the moment of birth, I knew something was up.

I’m not alone. At Red State, Pejman Yousefzadeh sees Rumsfeld’s critics as after the reconstruction effort as much as the man himself, and Academic Elephant thinks the Dems are, as usual, after the wrong man.

Reason# 5,342 why New England springs are better than Arizona’s: what a pleasure it is to sit outside under a sun that wasn’t threatening to burn your a$$ off 5 minutes after you just get yourself comfortable.

Took my cousin’s son Eric back to classes at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI yesterday. A pretty heady place for a young, handsome, intelligent 18-year old (who, BTW, can whip The Great White Shank on the links without breaking a sweat). To attend college in a place like Newport with all those attractive, rich coeds taking aim at you at a time when the the whole world is your oyster, your life stretching before you like a long, wave-kissed beach on a bright, brisk spring day. Sigh. All I can say is, youth is wasted on the young.

Back in AZ, the reports are good on the mourning dove maternity watch. Prospective mom and dad are vigilant in their roles as expectant parents – all the while the grass grows out back and the trash and recycleables pile up – all to make sure nature is allowed to take its course. ZA pain in the a$$, but a beautiful and fascinating thing to behold.
