Say, that was the name of a pretty good Who album, wasn’t it? Anyways, we’re heading towards the end of another work week, and I can’t think of a better way to clean out the desk drawers than to pass along these items for your interest and/or enjoyment:

* So what’s up with these latest security incidents involving plane flights? Odd, to say the least. Could it be that someone is either: a) trying to send a message, or b) testing the system to see what passengers can get away with? If not strange, it is unsettling, to say the least.

* 15 million people left homeless? Sounds almost impossible to imagine. (Hat tip: Drudge)

* Do cows have regional accents? It turns out British farmers think so, or perhaps they’re just slurring their words when they drink too much? (Hat tip: Baseball Crank)

* Possible optimism involving the ultimate fates of captured journalists Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig?

(BTW, if you’re wondering just how loathsome the nutballs on the far-left can be, check out this article on a column written by Democratic Party official Mike Whitney who wrote that Centanni and Wiig deserved to be kidnapped because FOX employees are “an integral part of the American war machine”. Pathetic. Hat tip: Michelle.)

* So Pluto is not considered a planet any more. While I was up in Vancouver last week, there was mega-coverage of the astronomers conference in Prague convened to decide, among other things, the fate of this heavenly body. Word is that the topic generated a “heated debate”. A heated debate? Over a floating ball of rock more than a gazillion miles away? What a freakin’ waste of time and money. Three words: Get. A. Life.

* But speaking of heavenly bodies, I’ve always thought Kirsten Dunst is pretty attractive. …Same goes for Meg Ryan.

* Lest one have any remaining doubts about whether we as a nation should continue to trust Russia as anything other than an adversary and an agent provocateur when it comes to the interests of the West, this news should take care of that. Unfortunately, the same holds true for the rest of the U.N. Security Council, where, just as with the lead-up to the war in Iraq, the leaders and governments of Russia, China, and France are so morally bankrupt that, rather than take a stand and impose sanctions that might impact them economically, they choose the weasely way out.

(Is it any wonder that Israel is increasingly aware that the Iranian problem is one they will probably end up having to resolve on their own?)

  1. I’m a Who fan and I have never seen or heard of that album. I have Live at Leeds from around the same time with some of those songs on it. It is easily one of my favorite live albums. It is my second favorite Who album only behind Quadrophenia. I love Young Man’s Blues.
