Laugh It Off

Day off today. Laundry and such needs to be done.
And then there's the gig, of course. We also will be doing a private party tomorrow.
I'll load up on Gatorade.
Good news, bad news, and more good news. The first good news is that the next Looney Tunes Golden Collection is scheduled to be released this October.
The bad news: Warner Brothers has said this will be the final one, but evidently other releases are planned.
The second good news: the classic Russian Rhapsody will be included. This is one of my favorites, and most of the funniest parts are in the first two minutes.
Make note of the name of the German newspaper.
Speaking of more output, Brooke McEldowney has decided to publish Pibgorn five days a week instead of only three days a week.

Nancy Pelosi continues to block offshore drilling, citing the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill.
I guess we haven't come up with any new drilling technology in the last forty years.
California taxes are high, right? And so are gas prices, yes?
Well, congratulations to the governor and state legislature - not only is the Auto Club going to close its California call centers (saying "it costs more to do business" here), but Toyota has decided NOT to build the Prius in its San Francisco plant.
Al Gore continues to claim the "science is settled" about global warming.
As Penn & Teller would say, bullshit.
And the Science and Public Policy Institute has proof that the IPCC overstated values in its computer models, "resulting in a 500-2000% overstatement of CO2's effect on temperature" in the report the IPCC published last year.
"I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it [global warming] is..." - Al Gore, 2006
I think I'll head out for some lunch.
Be seeing you.
