Semi-random thoughts

  • The price of bacon bits just soared 20%. grump.
  • I'm loving the new SwiftKey X keyboard on my Droid phone.
  • My glob recently got a hit from the Marshall Islands. That's a first. And I don't think I've seen one from Tunisia before, either.
  • I really need to do some stretching exercises before I epilate my legs--especially if I want to see what I'm doing.

Headline of the day

(I guess it's an animal headline, technically, but it's not about an animal.)

Owner of killer bear chokes to death on sex toy

Subhead: Found dead handcuffed to water bed; death likely accidental, coroner says

Murdoch getting his come-upance?

Calls for U.S. to investigate, prosecute News Corp. grow louder

Analysis: Murdoch's newspaper crisis causes jitters in U.S.

I'd love to see Rupert Murdoch and his evil empire taken down a notch or ten. I assume he's insulated himself personally from any criminal liability, but it would be great to see his News Corp. get prosecuted.
