The billboard wackos are at it again. They don't even want billboards at places like LA Live and Hollywood where most folks under 50 think they're cool. Convoluted thinking that creates a crisis out of a non-issue leads to the notion that by allowing individual communities to set their own course as opposed to a suburban crank NIMBY driven one size fits all the billboard industry will sue. Dumbasses, a Citywide ban will invite lawsuits as well. If there are any billboard attorneys out there (except for Walter Moore) that want to file a class action suit against the city on my behalf I'm willing to advocate for sign districts and more billboards. (Don't we have a budget and crime problem that's more important the nutbar obsession with billboards?)
More special event fee waiver nonsense from your local City Clowncil. The City is going broke but apparently we can afford to pop taxpayer money for an "American Idol Viewing Party." Can't Ryan Seacrest pick up the tab here? Heck it would be a write-off! Who is behind this nonsense? Not surprsingly Jan Perry and disappointingly, Dennis Zine.
Catholics are expressing concern over Notre Dame University's invitation to President Obama to speak at their commencement following his recent decision to fund stem cell research. Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt says at this blog, "Imagine the reaction if the National Right to Life Committee were to invite President Obama to receive its leadership award. By contrast, imagine if the ACLU were to invite Secretary Rumsfeld to receive its leadership award."
Apparently it isn't just Senator Larry Craig who allegedly likes bathroom sex. The Daily Telegraph reports that Britney Spears reportedly had a seven to nine minute tryst with one of her dancers in a john following a concert, while burly security guards were posted outside. Uh oh, don't let Daddy Spears know!
Former President Jimmy Carter has gone off the deep end and apparently feels that the Civil War as "un-Christian." In a new book about the writings of Abraham Lincoln Carter comments on a comment by the 16th President that he was on a mission from God to end slavery by saying Abe's words were "very troubling" and "that that the leaders of both sides, overwhelmingly Christian, were violating a basic premise of their belief as followers of the Prince of Peace."
Flap the Blogging Sadist I mean Dentist has a Meghan McCain obsession. I don't blame him because she's smart and very sexy but this isn't way you impress a girl, Doc. Even when she's right Flap has to hate on Meghan and point out her age. That might be because Flap is like three times Meghan's age. Flap, I think there's a molar calling you.
