AIDS Activists “Pine” For Dubya?

Remember this sign that appeared in Minnesota a few months ago?

The “culprits” behind it were a group of small business owners who “feel Washington is against them”.

But is it possible that some AIDS activists share the sentiment espoused in the billboard?

Speaking of 43, his fellow Republicans are worried about the potential negative impact of his soon-to-be-published memoirs.

One prominent conservative compared the Bushies’ public-relations savvy to LeBron James.

Ouch…

A Hapsburg, LeBron and Martha Stewart Walk Into A Bar…

Carles Puyol (right) who looks like he just stepped out of a Hapsburg family portrait, heads Spain into the World Cup Final. As a descendant of the Hapsburg’s, Puyol will be looking for some payback by cracking some skulls against the Netherlands on Sunday

My guess is that since LeBron James missed not having a signing day presser coming out of high school, he’s making up for lost time with “The Decision”. Great column on the LeBron “saga” that  mercifully ends tonight.

When the folks at NASA aren’t trying to reach out to the Muslim world, they’re conducting valuable research.

Forget Wife Swap, how ’bout an old-fashioned spy swap? Makes me want to re-read The Cardinal of the Kremlin.

So now these “elites” will become embittered and “cling to martini glasses or environmentalism or antipathy towards people who don’t think like them or anti-American sentiment or anti-capitalism sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” Right POTUS?

Unbelievable pictures of Monterrey in the aftermath of Hurricane Alex.

Holy poncho Batman! Martha Stewart had lengua, easily the most underrated “cut” of beef.

Caught this on PBS last night, I might or might not have almost shed a tear because of Jackie’s courage in the face of such bitter hatred.

Nastia Liukin Haliukins Rest of the Field to take Gold

Every four years we, as a nation, care about gymnastics, women gymnastics that is (as for the men we collectively care about them as much as we care about the WNBA).

Last night’s women’s all-around final was no exception as many people around the country (my wife and I included) stayed up until midnight to watch American Nastia Liukin win gold and teammate Shawn Johnson take silver (and Chinese gymnast Yang Yilin and her cadre of judges take bronze). I was shocked to learn this morning that even my boss (who misses the latter parts of Houston Rockets late playoff games) stayed up to watch the drama unfold.

Liukin and Johnson push each other to all-around glory

After the Russian-born Liukin won, I couldn’t help but think if the Russian team was bitter because they could have had her on their team had her parents not moved to the States when she was 2.

Although Shawn Johnson got the silver, could the “Coca-Cola Curse” (second cousin to the Madden Curse) prevented her from getting gold? Could her appearance on commemorative 12-pk Coca-Cola boxes (below) prevented her from getting gold?

Let’s just hope that doesn’t extend to her boxmate, LeBron James as he tries to restore former glory to USA Basketball.

If you’re wondering what in the world Haliukins is in reference to, here is a hint:
