Rule 5 Monday: Lt. Commander Rand, RIP

— compiled by Wombat-socho The weekend got eaten by Game of Thrones, visiting with friends, and suchlike distractions, but here we are, finally, with another week of links celebrating attractive women. This week we note the passing of Grace Lee Whitney, who played the rather toothsome Yeoman Janice Rand on the original Star Trek series*, […]

Late Night Reprise With Rule 5

— compiled by Wombat-socho No appetizer this week; the hour is late and I need to get this done so I can rise early in the morning and continue working on the Great Move West. As usual, many of the following links contain links to pics of scantily clad women which may or may not […]

Late Night With Rule 5 Monday

— compiled by Wombat-socho Better late than never…apologies for the lateness, but it was a busy weekend. As an appetizer, veteran and former Playboy Playmate Michelle Manhart, who made the news this week when she interrupted some flag-desecrating morons by stealing their flag, and got arrested for her pains.

To introduce our lineup of links, here’s the appropriately endowed […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Congratulations, Miss Palin!

— compiled by Wombat-socho I haven’t seen WeSmirch in a couple of weeks, but the explosion of happiness on Facebook over the impending nuptials of Sergeant Dakota Meyer, USMC, and Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol has been hard to miss. I wish them a long and happy marriage. As usual, this post contains links to pictures […]

Late Night With Rule 5 Sunday: Spring Thaw?

— compiled by Wombat-socho The weather here in the Washington area was a (relatively) balmy 52 this afternoon, and is supposed to remain decently warm for the rest of the week, which means we’ll soon start seeing attractive women outdoors wearing short jackets instead of coats that look closely related to comforters or air mattresses.
