Nobody Asked Me, But...

The post-tryptophan weekly whip-around of news you might have missed, and probably didn't need to know anyway, but you'd be surprised...

1) I wrote an article a few weeks ago about the curious lack of presence of India, given all of Pakistan's troubles. Someone seems determined to end this neutrality.

2) The English national soccer team suffered an humiliating defeat at the hands of Croatia this week, and will have to fight for a spot in the World Cup in 2007, held in its former colony, South Africa. Immediately, the country fired the man responsible for this calamity. If only our country could take the hint.

3) I guess we won't be seeing too many more articles from the right wing fasciofringe about how we're "winning" the war on terror...

4) Could Skype be the next target of the DoJ?

5) I would like to find out two things: first, how would you know that it was less effective at higher doses, and second, where can I sign up for the follow up testing?

6) Global warming strikes again.

7) In case you were wondering why economic royalists are laughing at you as you struggle to make your mortgage payment...

8) This soul is a train wreck in slow motion.

9) Do you get the feeling the US economy is being simply left behind?

10) Putin poo-poos parapluie plan.

11) A bit of a sad note to literature fans everywhere: Anne Frank's tree is dying. eBay to the rescue!

12) Seriously....4 AM?!?!?!?!? I'm sure the store staff *loved* that!
