The bad news: The vet removed Elke's bandage yesterday and naturally she began to lick and bother the stitches. So, out came a huge e-collar. This thing looks like a lampshade and the poor dog is bumping into everything.
The good news: The pathology report on the growth on her foot was a cutaneous calcinosis secondary to a pressure point.
We were very happy to hear that. Now all we have to do is keep our sanity until her foot heals.

You remember the Clinton Administration's transfer of sensitive technology to Communist China in exchange for campaign contributions.
How Chinagate Led To 9/11
Well, Madame Rodham, is no less a Manchurian candidate than Bill.
Big Source of Clinton's Cash
Is An Unlikely Address
Why are the ChiComs funneling money into Hillary's campaign coffers?
For the same reason Castro thinks a Hillary/Obama ticket in 2008 is a dream team.

Don't forget to set your alarm clocks.
From Miami comes news that DOC Puts End To Inmates' Kosher Meals
The Corrections Dept. has ended the Jewish Dietary Accommodation Program, which provided kosher meals to Jews and Moslems, because the state system does not offer halal food. The dept. will continue to offer vegetarian and vegan meals.
Hey, I have an idea. If you're so worried about your diet, don't break the law!
They're lucky they don't have Warden Cube.

You're Cat's Cradle!
by Kurt Vonnegut
You believe quite firmly that free will deserted you long ago and far
away. As a result, it's hard to take responsibility for anything. Even though you show
great potential as a leader of a small 3rd world country, the choices are all made ahead
of time. You're rather fond of games involving string. Your fear of nuclear weaponry is
trumped only by your fear of ice.
Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.
Why do I subject myself to these silly things?
Pat Schroeder has been getting under my skin for years and she's still at it.
As president of the American Association of Publishers, Pat has gone on the record about the differences between conservatives and liberals.
Book Chief: Conservatives Want Slogans
I'll break the article down for my conservative friends who, according to Pat, don't read:
kuncervativs r to stoopids to reed boooks.
First, I want to know how in the world this idiot keeps landing jobs for which she is unqualified. Who would hire her?
And second, I want the chance to chase this ninny down & smack her with the book I'm currently reading.

You've all seen the commercials for Bush's Baked Beans where Duke, the traitorous dog, is constantly plotting to sell the secret family recipe.
Good beans. Bad ads.
What is up with Duke? Doesn't he know that the secret family recipe keeps him in kibbles and supports his lavish lifestyle?
Word to Jay: Dude, that dog needs a trip to Michael Vick's house.
This little guy is an axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) and is the best-known of the Mexican neotenic mole salamanders belonging to the Tiger Salamander complex.
Axolotls are used extensively in scientific research due to their ability to regenerate most body parts, ease of breeding, and large embryos.
For more weird critters...

Just don't chase me with a Star-nosed Mole. Those things look vile.

Last Thursday, The BLOG highlighted Randell Hoven's compilation of 62 incidents of media mishaps, screw-ups, liberal bias, etc.
Today I bring you 21 additional names that Hoven has added to the "Media Hall of Shame" for a total of 83.
Not Just Scott Beauchamp II
I've made a hard copy of this article so that it will be at the ready to smack the nearest liberal who whines about right wing media bias.

Randell Hoven of The American Thinker has compiled a list of fallen journalists and media screw-ups that will knock your socks off.
Really, it is a shock to see these 62 incidents (and counting) in list form.
It's Not Just Scott Beauchamp
Next time someone argues that there is no liberal bias in the media, pull out this list and smack them squarely in the face with it.

A follower of Abdul Aleem Musa, the outspoken imam at the mosque, Masjid al-Islam, is in trouble with the law.
When applying for a security job at Andrews Air Force Base, Darrick Jackson a.k.a. Abdul-Jalil Mohammad didn't bother to reveal his alias when asked, "Have you ever used or been known by another name?"
Former Guard Accused Of Hiding Moslem Ties
If you build a mosque, the malcontents will come.

Great Perseids Meteor Shower tomorrow night
Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office at the Marshall Space Flight Center says it's going to be a great show because the Moon is new on August 12th--which means no moonlight, dark skies and plenty of meteors.
How many? Cooke estimates one or two Perseids per minute at the shower's peak.
So get out there & watch!

Well, The Best Of The BLOG didn't go, but a glass CD loaded with literary, visual and audio science fiction works about the red planet was strapped to NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander and will reach Mars in 10 months.
Space Library Heads Towards Mars
That should keep the Martians busy for a while ;-)

Army Private Scott Thomas Beauchamp, the discredited “Baghdad Diarist” for the discredited New Republic magazine, is the latest fabricator of anti-U.S. Military propaganda willingly (and almost lovingly) accepted as true by the MSM.
Michelle Malkin does an excellent job of collating the recent crop of liars a la John Effing Kerry in Winter Soldier Syndrome .
That Beauchamp is married to a reporter working for the New Republic wasn't publicized by the magazine, but was discovered by real journalists at the Weekly Standard.
