Baseball stuff - Erwin Santana pitched a complete game last night, shutting out the Royals and increasing his record to 6-0. He's one of three Angels to start a season this well (John Lackey and Jered Weaver being the other two).
The Angels won 4-0, but it took two home runs in the ninth inning to do it. That's right - there was no score until the top of the 9th.
Sorry I missed it.
Last month, Walter Williams wrote an article about why ethanol is a good thing for some folks - mainly Archer Daniels Midland.
More info about the ethanol subsidies here.
In Philadelphia, three men robbed a bank while dressed in Muslim women's clothes to avoid detection. One robber was killed, as was a police officer who gave chase.
Local Muslims are offended - not only because it put "sisters in danger" since they might be mistaken for the robbers, but because "the Quran forbids a man to imitate a woman".
In the midst of all that, I bring you a couple stories that hopefully will cheer you up and give you hope for the human race.
First there is this phenomenal story of sportsmanship - a team found a loophole that helps...the other team.
And a descendant of Henry Cabot Lodge assaulted his girlfriend and tries to tell the judge he has "intermittent explosive disorder". The judge - and this is where the "feel-good" part comes in - promptly calls "bullshit" and throws the rich twerp in jail.
There are pictures of said twerp during sentencing. Fark caption for article picture #6: "Prison Penis Goes WHERE???"
Oh, and according to the Fark comments: "intermittent explosive disorder" is a real condition. However, the person usually feels remorse afterward. This twerp has a rap sheet that includes breaking a girl's arm in eighth grade, beating up his younger brothers (several times), and pushing his mom down the stairs. The woman he assaulted (and lacerated her liver) is described as "petite" and the twerp is 6'6. So note that he never "exploded" unless it was a fight he could win.
Twenty years ago we'd just call them "bullies".
Oh, and two months ago he asked that his GPS monitoring bracelet be removed because it hurts his ankle during Frisbee games.
A bully AND a wimp. Figures.
Speaking of "intermittent explosive disorder"...here's what true sufferers of this disorder look like:
Time to get going.
Be seeing you.
