Fiery Crash Collapses L.A. Freeway
"Heat exceeded 2,750 degrees and caused the steel beams holding up the interchange from eastbound I-80 to eastbound Interstate 580 above to buckle and bolts holding the structure together to melt, leading to the collapse," said California Department of Transportation director Will Kempton.
I wonder how Rosie O'Donnell, "comic" and, as of late, vocal expert in metallurgy, will explain this incident in light of her cockamamy 9/11 conspiracy theories. Here, a scant 5 1/2 years later, is only the second time in history that fire has melted steel.
I bet the loon will find someway to blame the Bush administration.
What the eco-greeny activists won't tell you about replacing your incandescent bulbs with the mercury-ridden CFL bulbs:
The CFL Mercury Nightmare
I urge you to think before you replace the incandescent bulbs in your home.
A broken CFL bulb cost a family in Maine $2,004.28 to remove the mercury from their home. The annual savings in electricity would've been $180.
Do the math, because the enviro-greenies don't know how.

Carl Bernstein's at it again. This time he's writing an unauthorized biography of Hillary...
BOOK TO SPILL ON HILL:
BERNSTEIN USES HER PAL'S NOTES TO PEN TELL-ALL
Don't expect much from this "tell all". Bernstein has been around long enough to know that people who cross the Clintons end up dead often under unusual circumstances.
Look at the list for yourselves THE CLINTON BODY COUNT .

Marilee Jones, Dean of Admissions at MIT for 28 years, has admitted she "misrepresented" her credentials and has resigned.
Dean At M.I.T. Resigns, Ending A 28-Year Lie
Ms. Jones, 55, representing herself as "a scientist by training" at Albany Medical College, Union College and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, had, in fact, no degrees from any of those places, or anywhere else, M.I.T. officials said.
This is just one reason why I dislike affirmative action hirings and quotas. This woman was hired in 1979 to lead to lead the recruitment efforts for women. The emphasis should be on hiring competent people, not filling a quota.
Contrary to popular belief, Dean Jones did not participate as the target in the Annual MIT Piano Toss in which a piano is tossed from the Baker House to mark the last date to drop classes for the spring term.
There must not be too many music majors at MIT.

"I'm not going to get into a name-calling match with the administration's chief attack dog," Reid said of Vice President Cheney.
Cheney, Reid Spar Over Iraq Policy
Typical liberal ploy. You say you won't name-call while you name-call!
I have a few names for you, Senator Reid...
Coward. Traitor. Cut and run defeatocrat. Or just Democrat.

Eco-nuts Sheryl Crow and Laurie David finished up their two-week Stop Global Warming College Tour and the resulting blog reads like greenie eco-drivel.

Sheryl, I assume you can't spare a square, but can you please spare us the lecture about your lack of personal hygiene.
We don't want to know.

NBC Says It Debated for Hours Whether To Air Shooter's Images
Yeah, and then they went ahead and aired the ramblings of a psycho murderer.
RATINGS BLOWOUT FOR NBC NEWS... 7.4 RATING/15 SHARE FOR BRIAN WILLIAMS AND CHO TAPES.
This is outrageous. The public doesn't have a need to know this, and this deranged loser doesn't need to be heard.

From Reuters: "A live video image of Canadian-born actor William Shatner (R) appears on Rogers Wireless Chief Marketing Officer John Boynton's video phone during an unveiling of North America's first real-time video conferencing cell phone during a news conference in Toronto."
Yikes, the Shatman's face looks like it's about to pop. Thanks, but that's one image I don't want beamed up to my video phone.

Sources: College Gunman Left Note
The note left by the jerk included a rambling list of grievances, according to sources. They said Cho also died with the words "Ismail Ax" in red ink on the inside of one of his arms.
Ismail Ax? I wonder what that means...
I can't help thinking that had some citizen been armed, the carnage could've been prevented. At the very least, some of those kids might have been saved.
Now all we can do is pray for their families.

It wasn't by accident that Imus' remarks aroused such instant nation-wide protests.
Media Watchdogs A Tipping Point For Imus' Downfall
26-year-old activist Ryan Chiachiere was listening to every word Imus said on his show. Chiachiere is a member of Media Matters for America, a liberal group whose sole purpose is to listen to conservative media and to "correct conservative misinformation in the U.S. media."
The group quickly posted a video clip of the exchange on YouTube and sent e-mails to journalists, civil-rights and women's groups.
In today's viral media culture, that was all it took to spark the media firestorm that ensued.
This group begs the question... who watches the watchers?

Hillary, shown here in her socialist-Saul-Alinsky-thesis-writing-days at Wellesley...
Hillary: No To Imus
"I've never wanted to go on his show and I certainly don't ever intend to go on his show, and I felt that way before his latest outrageous, hateful, hurtful comments," she said.
But Hillary had no problem with hip hop moguls hosting swank $1000 a plate fundraisers for her...

[The BLOG note: In this spot there used to be a video of a fortune cookie which
wished good luck to all who watched it. Well, I got sick of the annoying musical jingle that popped up unannounced whenever The BLOG came up, so I've taken it down and replaced it with a lucky picture I like much better and one that doesn't assault my ears.]

Now that the Imus In The Morning show is off TV, the liberals are rushing to portray Imus as a conservative! The Radio Equalizer Blog has the scoop on this latest campaign of misinformation.
Meanwhile over at MSNBC.com, Krazy Keith Olberman already has a list of conservatives he says are next to get cancelled over hate speech radio Why Just Imus? .
KKO's list includes Rush Limbaugh, Neil Bortz, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage...
Hmmm, do you see a pattern emerging?

Engineers Create 'Optical Cloaking' Design For Invisibility
Researchers using nanotechnology have taken a step toward creating an "optical cloaking" device that could render objects invisible by guiding light around anything placed inside this "cloak."
Once perfected, will this optical cloak be marketed to hunters?

Thomas Sowell's piece in Realclearpolitics.com puts it in perspective...
Democrats Playing With Fire
Sowell writes, "All that Pelosi's trip can accomplish is to advertise American disunity to a terrorist-sponsoring nation in the Middle East while we are in a war there."
Does this megalomanaical dingbat think she's the president? The terrorists must be
laughing their butts off!

Lucianne's son, Jonah Goldberg, has a hilarious article RE: Rosie's latest nutjob rant about 9/11...
The 'Queen Of Nice' Goes Nuts
Rosie's rants are growing increasingly ignorant. Now she's contradicting real metallurgists!
Goldberg calls for Rosie's firing from The View, but I hope he doesn't hold his breath. I mean since when has the vain and vapid BahBwha ever had any journalistic integrity? Remember interview with questions like, "If you were a twee, what kind of twee would you be?
The scatterbrained ninnies on The View give women everywhere a bad name and they don't speak for me.
