Life continues. Nothing personal to report.
A man in Olympia, WA wanted to burn a Mexican flag to protest the policy - or lack thereof - of illegal immigration. He figured if people could burn an American flag, he should be able to burn one that wasn't the symbol of the country he lives in.
Ah, but he forgot one thing...and that prevented him from doing it.
(BTW, this is the item today's title links to - primarily due to the "burn baby burn" chorus.)
A group has found that global warming is putting too much pressure on women, and a "threat to human rights".
Gee, next thing you know, it'll be found that illegal immigrants are more affected by global warming than actual citizens. Or it'll turn racial and Sharpton will start saying how global warming is hurting blacks more than whites.
Merriam-Webster has selected 2007's Word Of The Year.
At least it wasn't "wide stance".
Today we go grocery shopping. Onward.
Be seeing you.

Don't dismiss the burden being placed on women around the globe due to many factors. The poor get the brunt of any problems, and the subservient poor even more.
That Tancrediot in Seattle shouldn't have ASKED if he could burn a flag.

So, where would W00t fall in the dictionary? letters before numbers? I forget how the dewy decimal system works, or would they even use the dewy decimal system in the dictionary? I don't know what I'm talking about...
