!! OMG, the horror: Fake chocolate everywhere !!

If “big candy” gets their way, the common man may never know real chocolate again. From the NY Times:

Industrial confectioners have petitioned the Food and Drug Administration to be able to replace cocoa butter with cheaper fats and still call the resulting product “chocolate.” The reason: the substitution would allow them to use fewer beans and to sell off the butter for cosmetics and such.

One more swipe at the American quality of life. If Americans are going to get fat, at least let them do it with cocoa butter! (Thanks to Laura F. for the tip!)

!! OMG, how repentant: Jim McGreevey !!

Now that he’s in the middle of a messy divorce, I can see why King Henry VIII’s Episcopal church seemed appealing to former NJ governor/current gay Jim McGreevey, who recently converted to the faith from Roman Catholicism. What I’m not so sure about is McGreevey’s motive for joining the seminary.
You might not know the Episcopal priests are allowed to have sex, unlike Catholic ones, which is appealing in itself, but extra appealing for McGreevey could be that they are also allowed to have gay sex. But really, wouldn’t it be easier to have gay sex and not become an Episcopal priest? It’s worked for millions of other people.
Whatever the reason for this sudden change of plans, I wish Jim McGreevey the best in his quest to find himself, the Lord, or whoever he is looking for.

!! R. Kelly writes song for VT dead !!

Upset by the massacre at Virginia Tech, freaky-deaky singer R. Kelly decided to write not an entire R&B opera as I would have hoped, but a smarmy, extremely non-specific come-back song called “Rise Up.” While all proceeds from the song will go directly to the Hokey Spirit Memorial Fund, I still smell the odor of exploitation. Give it a listen:
