Let’s crank this back up, shall we?
Mississippi Flooding: The Mississippi River brings destruction to the South.
A Gentle Reminder: The Libyan Civil War continues. Catch up with the Middle East here.
Obama on 60 Minutes: President Barack Obama sat down to discuss the Osama bin Laden killing on 60 Minutes last night. Conservatives watched, anxiously counting how many times he said “I.” Count for yourself if that’s your thing.
GOP Is Abortion: If you’ve seen any GOP-lead jobs bills floating around, let me know. While looking, just know the GOP has unleashed 916 bills trying to take away a woman’s choice.
Real Mavericks: After dismantling and flat-out embarassing the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers, the Dallas Mavericks have to be considered a favorite to take the NBA title. In theory, the Lakers had the size to deal with the Mavs’ big men, but it wasn’t even close. This is just not going to be an easy team to beat in a Best-of-Seven match-up.
Rose By Any Other Name: Feel free to insert any type of praise you like here for Derrick Rose. Sure, last night he may have shouldered too much of the burden for the Bulls and left his gas tank on empty by the end, but the Chicago Bulls won 62 games and are two games away from the Eastern Conference Finals with as average a line-up as you’ll ever see. Rose’s talent, determination and hustle are a pleasure to watch. And he’s 22. Love this kid.
Thanks Shane: I think I’ve mentioned (repeatedly) that I once trained with Suger Shane Mosley. After his poor effort against Manny Pacquiao, one thing is clear – his skills have diminished. It’s time to call it a career, Shane. Thanks for the memories.
Alan Colmes Presents Liberaland: Dick Cheney lies about CIA agents being punished by the Obama Administration.
DailyKos: Looking back at how the Bush Administration ignored all the terror warnings until it was far too late.
Dvorak: Hey, did you guys know GOP hopefuls had a debate the other night? Yep, they did.
Lance Mannion: A rip-roaring tale of high adventure featuring cowboys, Indians, outlaws, gunfights, robbery, murder, and million dollar gold strikes that all happens to be true.
Mock, Paper, Scissors: The Apocalypse is less than two weeks away. I’d start packing now.
August 3, 2007: We Were Once An Honorable Nation.
Hang in there.

Part of my morning was spent at the dentist, so there won’t be as much to report today. That said, today is World AIDS Day. As much as ever before, we need to focus on this disease, that is affecting our youth more than ever.
Of late, it seems the fear of AIDS has dissipated somewhat. It shouldn’t. It remains a horrifying disease with no cure. Protect yourselves. All of you.
The Hill: Darrell Issa may be a partisan hack, but he won’t stand for bad language. Trust me.
Osborne Ink: Matt can keep getting by with a little help from his friends.

No More Terror by Colors: No one could have anticipated the color-coded terror warning system was a joke.
Korean War Games: Someone should point out to someone that the North Koreans have a big-ass army and an unstable leader.
Democratic Abortions: No, no, no. Freedom of choice means an individuals choice, silly. It doesn’t mean letting people vote on whether you should have an abortion.
Wikileaking: More to come.
Die With Your Debt: Some Seniors are starting to figure out the credit game.
Drug Tunnels: Being they are already tunneling, how’s the fence going to help that problem?
Sponsored by four dachshunds in colorful hoodies.

The next Gitmo detainee patiently awaits his turn at justice.

Ok, two other Chilean miners died recently. But let’s focus on the positive.
One day, a saved Chilean Miner will murder someone. And it will be the most life-affirming murder ever.
