A new planet is found in our solar system and they want to call it Xena ...yes after that Xena, bless the astronomers...
A company called BioBling in the US is connecting people to flashy 70's and 80's cars that run on biodiesel, the clean fuel...
The space missions were grounded for two years after the Columbia disaster was caused by a piece of foam breaking off and hitting the wing on launch (which made the Columbia break apart and overheat on re-entry), the Discovery is up in space now trying to deal with a the effects of a launch problem that left the craft vulnerable to overheating on re-entry..glad they took those two years to improve the shuttle...good luck to the souls on that mission...
Bush played a little constitutional trick and went round the Senate and stuck John Bolton up the U.N's ass against most of the world's (and Congress') wishes. Isn't democracy just sparkling these days?
A board member at Harvard University is resigning in protest over a salary increase for prez. Larry Summers ...you know, Larry Summers, the guy who said women aren't as smart as men in science and math and the guy who insisted that toxic materials from developed countries should be dumped on the third world...
Atkins Nutritionals Inc, the company that makes the low carb foods for Atkins fanatics is filing for bancruptcy...is it because Mr Atkins was found to weigh over 18 stone (114 Kilos) and had a diseased heart when he passed away, or because the diet gives you bad breath ...or because like all fads it's day must come---

The prez of Pakistan is trying to stop a new law in a conservative province which would create a new morality police there: "The province's hisbah (accountability) bill would empower an Islamist police force with draconian powers to close down cinemas and businesses at prayer time, interrogate couples about their relationships, and arrest beggars. Offenders could be jailed for up to six months." Guardian

Hi VC, Thanks...it's kinda good to be back...i was getting tired of living out of a suitcase..you know I made so much fun of Xena for so many years and then one day i watched an episode (because showtime does that to you...leaves you no option but to watch something you thought you would hate)..well i watched an episode and laughed so hard I got hooked..it's weird..I had a dream the other day that they decided to scrap the name Xena and call the planet Tango...imagine how sad that would be..imagine how sad my dreams are now.
