!! I went away for a few days !!

and look what happened:
1. Sandra Day O’Connor resigned from the Supreme Court, giving Bush a chance to put another Scalia on the bench. If William Rehnquist retires, as Robert Novak claimed yesterday that he would according to “court sources,” then there might be two more Scalias, facilitating our full transition to police state.
2. Terrorists blew up London yesterday, killing at least 50 people.
3. The premiere of the Fantastic Four was soaked through and through, and all they had to eat was ice cream. (via The Fix)
4. SEIU President Andrew Stern decided that Labor cannot “just elect Democratic politicians” to help their cause, meaning he has at last realized the Republican Party’s sincere appreciation for the working class.
In case you were wondering where I’ve been all week, I was spending the July 4 holiday in beautiful NYC, where the fireworks were very impressive. They shot up those smiley face fireworks they did last year and also new ones that were yellow cubes. At last pyrotechnics has mastered the third dimension.
Now back in Canada, I will be blogging daily again, and trying to soothe my depression over recent events by looking at this website.

!! The world’s biggest assholes !!

popsicle (28k image)
Yesterday afternoon, Union Square in Manhattan was flooded with kiwi-strawberry-flavored high fructose corn syrup, causing many waist-conscious New Yorkers to flee for safety. Under the guise of trying to erect the “world’s largest popsicle EVER,” this sneak attack was perpetrated by Snapple Beverage Group in an attempt to fatten up the one bastion of skinniness in the world’s most obese nation. Even if they aren’t really affiliated with the KKK or anti-abortion organizations, I am still offended by Snapple’s wanton use of corn-sweetener and bad commercials. Let’s not forget to thank Mayor Bloomberg for making Snapple the official drink of New York City, thus putting it into every public school for the overweight younger generation to consume on a daily basis. (Thanks for the tip, Laura)

!! Now where will I watch my football? !!

Wait, I hate football. After failing to win unanimous support from the New York State Public Authorities Control Board, the proposal for the West Side Stadium, and hopefully New York’s bid for the 2012 Olympics, have finally breathed their last breaths. State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and Senate majority leader Joseph Bruno vetoed the proposal yesterday, but was it for personal reasons? Corruption or no, I’m just happy the area around Penn Station won’t become any more insufferable than it already is.

!! For transient young adults only !!

With Paul Rademacher’s new hack that combines Google Maps with Craig’s List, I can now see on a map all the too-good-to-be-true, fake apartment listings in Manhattan for under $1200. HousingMaps will revolutionize my futile search for my own apartment, as it has with all these people. Now if only they could overlay the subway map, murder rates, and proximity to organic grocery stores and loud, horrible bars like the Red Lion. I guess I can always search in Cincinnati or Las Vegas.
