Applecart upset

Meanwhile, in South Park

Some residents who have complained have children serving in Iraq, said Bob Kearns, president of the Loma Linda Homeowners Association in Pagosa Springs. He said some residents have also believed it was a symbol of Satan.


Kearns ordered the committee to require Jensen to remove the wreath, but members refused after concluding that it was merely a seasonal symbol that didn't say anything. Kearns fired all five committee members.

and I always felt that homeowners associations were Satan

LEE -- Because they couldn't find a dump open in Great Barrington, two youths threw a load of refuse down a Stockbridge hillside on Thanksgiving Day.

Saturday, Richard J. Robbins, 19, of Poughkeepsie, N. Y., and Arlo Guthrie, 18, of Howard Beach, N. Y., each paid a fine of $25 in Lee District Court after pleading guilty of illegally disposing of rubbish. Special Justice James E. Hannon ordered the youths to remove all the rubbish. They did so Saturday afternoon, following a heavy rain

Police Chief William J. Obanhein of Stockbridge said later the youths found dragging the junk up the hillside much harder than throwing it down. He said he hoped their case would be an example to others who are careless about disposal of rubbish.

The junk included a divan, plus nearly enough bottles, garbage, papers and boxes to fill their Volkswagen bus.

"The stuff would take up at least half of a goodsized pickup truck," Chief Obanhein said.

The rubbish was thrown into the Nelson Foote Sr. property on Prospect Street, a residential section of Stockbridge consisting largely of estates on the hill across from Indian Hilil [sic] School.

Chief Obanhein told the court he spent "a very disagreeable two hours" looking through the rubbish before finding a clue to who had thrown it there. He finally found a scrap of paper bearing the name of a Great Barrington man. Subsequent investigation indicated Robbins and Guthrie had been visiting the Great Barrington man and had agreed to cart away the rubbish for him. They told the court that, when they found the Barrington dump closed, they drove around and then disposed of the junk by tossing it over the Stockbridge hillside.

He creates fusion in his Oakland Township home

The design of the model came from his own ideas and some suggestions from other science-lovers he met online.
See, aside from influencing elections, the internet will also shortly have the bomb.

That must be quite some school system in Oakland Township.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- New Zealand's high school students will be able to use "text-speak" -- the mobile phone text message language beloved of teenagers -- in national exams this year, officials said.

The move has already divided students and educators who fear it could damage the English language.

as if they could damage the language more than that vowel shifting NZ accent.

John Kerry

today took his head out of his ass just long enough to stick his foot in his mouth.

Forgive me Senator, but you shouldn't quit your day job. In fact, get back to it. No laughing matter, I'm a voter and I've voted for you three times now over about 10 years. Go, lead, kick ass in my name. Embellish, poke your damned finger in his eye fer chrissakes. Take him down a peg. Be mouthy. Do not apologise for any of it, and when asked, just get the joke right.

The servicing mission should extend Hubble's orbital lifetime to at least 2013, by which time Nasa will be getting close to launching a successor: the James Webb Space Telescope.

Of course they are referring to the upcoming "Ronald Reagan Space Telescope", the one that points down at the terrorists, and not up at the stars, but close enough. Hubble is good.
