You're a Pinot Noir!
You're a fruity red wine. Difficult to grow and
easy to screw up, you demand a lot from your
winemakers but are well worth the effort.
You're seductive but no tease--you deliver
beautiful fruits and a velvety smoothness not
found in other reds. When you're good, you're
really, really good.


What Type of Wine Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

You are Cashmere.
You are Cashmere.
You are sophisticated and luxe. You can often be
found in high-end boutiques and hobnobbing with
the upper crust. You are one of the beautiful
people and you don't let anyone forget it!

Badges? We don't need no stinking badges

More cheerful news re secret prisons for terror suspects. As in, suspected. Not charged. Not convicted. And not documented. So remember,

they
hate us
because
we love freedom

and also, support our troops, by allowing them to die and refusing to even mention their names, because giving money to sticker manufacturers is so much PRETTIER.

A quiz. Because I have a headache and my brain is deeeeeeead.

Glamorous Soul
69% Tastefulness, 53% Originality, 74% Deliberateness, 54% Sexiness
[Tasteful Original Deliberate Sexy]

You choose your outfits carefully according to many criteria. You don't like looking cheap, dull or random and you go to great lengths to avoid this. You are successful, too. People admire your taste and sex appeal. Many try to imitate you but not many can recreate your unique style. Sometimes, however, they find you too intimidating to approach. If you don't wear retro style yet, perhaps you should consider it. It would become greatly your sexy, mysterious self.

The opposite style from yours is Fashion Enemy [Flamboyant Conventional Random Prissy].

What light through yon racist damn window breaks...etc.

Addressing a caller's suggestion that the "lost revenue from the people who have been aborted in the last 30 years" would be enough to preserve Social Security's solvency, radio host and former Reagan administration Secretary of Education Bill Bennett dismissed such "far-reaching, extensive extrapolations" by declaring that if "you wanted to reduce crime ... if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down." Bennett conceded that aborting all African-American babies "would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do," then added again, "but the crime rate would go down."

CORPSES FOR PORN? What on earth is this website doing? U.S. soldiers can post pics of the corpses of Iraqis killed in war on a website devoted mainly to amateur porn. I clicked through and saw just a couple of pics which are beyond appalling and distressing. The section for corpses - and it's not clear whether they are of insurgents or just civilians - has this introduction:
Pictures in this forum are submitted by U.S. Soldiers from over in Iraq and Afghanistan and will probably be a little gory. So if you get sick easy or have a problem with dead terrorists please don't look here.
If you send in pics of dead insurgents or Iraqis, you get free access to the porn part of the site. The pics that are appended have names such as "What every Iraqi should look like," "DIE, HAJI, DIE," and "Cooked Iraqi." I would think this violates the Geneva Conventions, not that the U.S. under this president cares about those very much any more. But it's also beyond depraved. Eric Muller sounded the alarm. Like the pictures from Abu Ghraib, these images are also a propaganda coup for Zarqawi and his monsters - a consequence of war in the Internet age. Have we really sunk to this?



We sank to this a while ago. I'm just saying.
