A Coke But No Smile

leave a comment »

What’s this? Cocaine could be bad for you? Oh noes!

Nearly a third of all cocaine seized in the United States is laced with a dangerous veterinary medicine—a livestock de-worming drug that might enhance cocaine’s effects but has been blamed in at least three deaths and scores of serious illnesses.

And it takes us EIGHTEEN PARAGRAPHS into the story to get this quote:

“I think the message is the same: Don’t use cocaine, it’s a dangerous drug,” (DEA spokesman) Knierim said.

And it takes us TWENTY-TWO PARAGRAPHS into the story to get:

“In Denver, after word spread about levamisole in cocaine, one man who fell ill asked a doctor if the ‘animal drug’ could have been making him sick. Health officials including Lavonas say the public needs to be warned about the dangers.”

I’m sure coke users will be heeding the warning of possibility getting sick from their drug use.

Making/Exposing The Grade

leave a comment »

Interesting. We know what this person wrote about 20 years ago…

Virginia’s Republican candidate for governor said Monday he no longer believes his argument in a graduate thesis written 20 years ago that discrimination against gays and other groups is acceptable for the benefit of straight, married couples.

Bob McDonnell’s research paper, first reported Sunday by The Washington Post, shakes up what had been a smooth campaign. McDonnell has maintained a clear lead over Democrat R. Creigh Deeds in statewide polling.

…but we still don’t have any information about President Hussein and his time with Columbia College.

Senator Hussein’s life story, from his humble roots, to his rise to Harvard Law School, to his passion as a community organizer in Chicago, has been at the center of his presidential campaign. But one chapter of the tale remains a blank — his education at Columbia College, a place he rarely speaks about and where few people seem to remember him.

Contributing to the mystery is the fact that nobody knows just how well Mr. Osama, unlike Senator McCain and most other major candidates for the past two elections, performed as a student.

The Osama campaign has refused to release his college transcript, despite an academic career that led him to Harvard Law School and, later, to a lecturing position at the University of Chicago. The shroud surrounding his experience at Columbia contrasts with that of other major party nominees since 2000, all whom have eventually released information about their college performance or seen it leaked to the public…

…In contrast with the rest of Mr. Osama’s life story, little is known about his college experience. He attended Occidental College in Los Angeles for two years before transferring to Columbia in 1981. The move receives only a mention in Mr. Osama’s 1995 memoir, “Dreams from My Father,” which instead devotes that chapter to his impressions of race and class struggles in New York…

…Federal law limits the information that Columbia can release about Mr. Osama’s time there. A spokesman for the university, Brian Connolly, confirmed that Mr. Osama spent two years at Columbia College and graduated in 1983 with a major in political science. He did not receive honors, Mr. Connolly said, though specific information on his grades is sealed. A program from the 1983 graduation ceremony lists him as a graduate.

While I’m somewhat on this topic, this is pretty funny. (From the above article about President Hussein.)

For better or worse, voters have taken an interest in candidates’ grades since 1999, when the New Yorker published President Bush’s transcript at Yale and disclosed that he was a C student. Mr. Bush had never portrayed himself as a brain, but many were surprised to learn the next year that his opponent, Vice President Gore, did not do much better at Harvard despite his intellectual image. When Senator Kerry’s transcript surfaced, reporters found that he actually had a slightly lower average at Yale than Mr. Bush did.

And this is freaking hilarious.

More is known about Mr. McCain’s experience at the United States Naval Academy, where he was a self-described troublemaker and graduated in the bottom 1% of his class. The McCain campaign has declined to release his transcript, saying that his performance at the academy can only be viewed in the context of his larger military career.

Bottom one percent? You know, McCain actually scored some points with me on this one.

The Mail Must Go … Somewhere

leave a comment »

What is it with Detroit? Seriously.

Federal agents say they’ve recovered more than 20,000 pieces of mail from a suburban Detroit postal carrier who stored them in his car, kitchen and garage instead of delivering them.

Thirty-seven-year-old James Stempnik Jr. of Clinton Township was charged Monday with delaying and stealing mail.

Postal agents said they found government checks, utility bills and court documents, some a year old. A motive is not known.

A Postal Service spokeswoman says none of the mail was opened and all pieces should be delivered by the end of the week.

Stempnik did not return a message seeking comment.

The charges came three months after another Michigan carrier who couldn’t keep up with her route was placed on probation for a similar crime.

With the mass exodus from the Motor City, you would think that a mailman’s postal carrier’s job would be easier to perform.

And another employee did a “similar crime” and was placed on PROBATION?!

I Marvel At Disney For Paying $4 Billion To Acquire Comic Book Characters

leave a comment »

So Disney bought Marvel. Whatever. I don’t care. I do have to wonder if this means Mickey Mouse will now make a cameo in each upcoming Marvel-related film, much like the way Stan Winston gets his 15 seconds of fame with each motion picture.

Walt Disney Co on Monday agreed to buy Marvel Entertainment Inc for $4 billion in the year’s biggest media deal, banking on Marvel’s pantheon of superheroes to broaden its lineup of movie franchises that appeal to boys.

Chiefs Scalp OC

leave a comment »

Shouldn’t this have been done a bit sooner and not less than two weeks before the regular season? Granted Haley is an offensive-minded guy, but still.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley fired his offensive coordinator Chan Gailey on Monday and said he would take over the role himself.

Trying To Crack This Time-Of-Death Mystery

leave a comment »

I have no clue who this guy is, but I wish I knew his time of death. That way I could say “AM died in the PM.”

More details have emerged regarding the shocking, sudden death of Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein, who was found dead in his New York apartment August 28th…

…As Rock Daily previously reported, after the NYPD broke down the door, police found Goldstein dead in bed, with a crack pipe and prescription pills nearby. According to People, a half bag of crack cocaine was also recovered from Goldstein’s apartment.

Actually, for some reason the better half was talking about this story today. I then associated this person with hip-hop. Mrs. kkk asked why I would do that — he wasn’t a rapper. I then had to explain that many rappers had a dj in the background producing the phat beats. Oh well.

I have no idea where this entry is going. Might as well bust out what’s being played as I type and leave on a high note.

A while back I made a remark about some of my site’s “top searches.”

I can’t let these go unreported any longer. I have to create a directory where I can start archiving these.

Today’s entry:
