    Will the Romney/Reid cat fight escalate to the point that they throw church statuery at each other? *popcorn*

    Romney should pay Dingy Harry a visit and smack him across the face with a gauntlet.

    Judge rules Oracle can’t abandon HP’s Itanium servers…

    Good news VMS fans! Reports of Itanium’s death were, uh, exaggerated. Yesterday a judge ruled that Oracle breached their contract with HP when they dropped support for HP’s Itanium servers. (h/t Wombat-socho’s Live At Five)…

    What about Harry Reid being a pederast?  We need to hear his explanations on this topic.

    Luckily the LDS church is short on idols. If they were both Catholic then the weaponry would be significantly more hefty and plentiful. I could see Romney going fisticuffs with Reid. LOL

    Katy Perry and skeevy John Mayer? What is it with her attraction to skeevy dudes? Gross.

     IDK; she doesn’t answer my calls and both Stacy and Smitty are spoken for. There’s just no figuring you dames out. 😉

     I, too, wish to hear his explanations for the Love That Formerly Dared Not Speak Its Name But Now Won’t STFU. Perhaps there is a large contribution from NAMBLA to explain this. In any case, he needs to come clean with America.

    If the WSJ and other “pay” sites tick you off by only giving the first sentence of an article on a link, here’s a workaround:  go to Google News or other news aggregator or search engine, put in the article’s headline, and most of the time you go right to the full article.

    Enigma would be a good name for girl.  Nothing tops the names I heard for twin boys, though:  Orangello and Lemonjello.

    I don’t understand these modern kids and their newfangled kids’ names. Whatever happened to nice traditional names for girls like Lexus and Porsche?
