LIGHTEN UP, IT'S SATURDAY
Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee, lousy with virginity
Won't go to bed till I'm legally wed, I can't, I'm Sandra Dee!

8 Chris, at LuckyDawgNews, isn’t all NASCAR all the time. (Two years ago he was driving the Kerrys crazy by posting their e-mails which he had inadvertently, but legally, received. Look for JOHN KERRY EMAILS in his sidebar:) Here are two great pieces at LDN: 1) The 9/11 Photo Gallery and 2) A journalist goes undercover and joins the Scientology cult.

Here's a good local news video clip showing aerial views.
Here's a site with dozens of photos.
They couldn't flush the toilets yesterday at the hospital where Nurse G works. Hopefully today they can.
THE DEVIL WEARS BURKAS
I almost pity Canada. They thought that by being nice they'd insulate themselves against the muslims' hatred. One of these young wives learned her extreme hatred right there in Canada.
Hateful chatter behind the veil: Wives of four of the central figures arrested last month were among the most active on the website, sharing, among other things, their passion for holy war, disgust at virtually every aspect of non-Muslim society and a hatred of Canada.
The women's husbands are part of a core group of seven charged with the most severe crimes -- plotting to detonate truck bombs against the Toronto Stock Exchange, a Canadian Forces target, and the Toronto offices of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
The women were bound by the same social, political and ideological aims. They organized "sisters-only" swimming days and held fundraisers for the notorious al-Qaeda-linked Khadr family.
Another reason why the half-vast left-wing goes into a collective meltdown whenever Ann Coulter is mentioned ...
Brain Food: What's most amazing about Ann Coulter's book, Godless: The Church of Liberalism, is the amount of intellectual meat she packs into 281 breezy, barb-filled pages.
Until Air America, Helen Thomas, and most Democrat constituencies alter their rhetoric, I see no reason for conservatives to denounce Coulter for using, more truthfully, the same harsh language that leftists have employed, with no regard for accuracy, since the time of Lenin. When liberals denounce communist tyrants as fervently as they do real Nazis, then it will be time for Coulter to cool the rhetoric. Until that time her "verbal reprisals" serve a useful function within an intellectual marketplace that resembles a commodities pit more than a debating society.
My favorite Coulterism: “Why not go to war for oil? We need oil. What do Hollywood celebrities imagine fuels their private jets? How do they think their cocaine is delivered to them?”
8 His heart's in the right place, but the charity's isn't. CAGE AIDS KIDS: WE can officially forgive Nicolas Cage for collecting huge paychecks for movie swill like "The Weather Man" and "National Treasure." The star has donated $2 million to Amnesty International to establish a fund to help former child soldiers who were forced into combat. Cage says an estimated 300,000 kids, some as young as 7, are compelled to fight in armed conflicts around the world. "He hasn't kissed a girl yet or fallen in love, but he's killed a man. What does that do to a child's mind?" Cage said in a statement.
8 So tell us something we don't already know. Oh, well, it's certainly worth repeating. The truth about Hollywood's BLACKLIST: "Being a Republican in Hollywood today is not much different than being a communist in Hollywood in the 1950s. I'm not trying to overstate the case, but the reality is there is a blacklist in Hollywood. It's very McCarthy-like. It just shows the hypocrisy of the left."

I haven't gone to the movies in ages, so long ago that I can't recall what I saw -- or the year. It would take one helluva flick to pry $7.50 from my tight little fist. So let it be known that The Devil Wears Prada is my must-see movie. Watch the hilarious trailer: "Gird your loins!" and "No, no, that wasn't a question." Ouch!
8 Page Six blind items are the best. JUST ASKING: WHICH swordsman son of a 60-something movie star has been spreading lice to some young, sexually active Manhattan women? A well-known party girl who recently spent the night with the stud was one victim, and then learned some of her friends were also infested . . . WHICH supermodel has personal assistants sign papers upon employment guaranteeing they won't sue her if things go sour? The agreement stopped one from pursuing a complaint after being pushed out of a moving car a few years back. Hmmmmmmm, possible answers?

Maybe you've been hearing/reading about the flooding in the Northeast. I live in an area which has been flooded a few times. Hurricane Agnes in '72 devastated the area. Since then, at least four times our basement has taken on several feet of water, and one year we were evacuated twice, in Jan. & Nov. Ironically, this time we have been spared -- so far. Had we gotten all the rain predicted, we would have been in the same soup.
My relatives, however, are in the flooded areas. Here's a map to show you the area.
#1. We live here.
#2. An hour's drive east is Sayre, PA, where Nurse G works at Robert Packer Hospital. With the major roads closed, it took her well over 2 hrs. to find her way home yesterday.
#3. Binghamton, NY, is where my neice and her husband and toddler live. Their newly renovated home sits right next to the Susquehanna River. It's the 2nd time in a little over a year that their home has been flooded. They're all safe, but once again the water has flooded the ground level of their home. For some reason, flood insurance is not mandatory there as it is here. Luckily, my nephew sells insurance and convinced his sister and brother-in-law to buy it last year. She said some of the gawkers are dreadful. They heard that their home was pictured on CNN and Larry King last night. We don't watch either so never saw it.
#4. This is where the I-88 collapsed and where the two truckers lost their lives. The last I heard, one body was retrieved but it was too dangerous to attempt to retrieve the second body.
#5. My mother and my brother and his family live in this area (2.5 hr drive from us). It, too, is experiencing flooding. Some streets and one park are underwater. Last Thursday my mother was admitted to the hospital (nothing major, just old age) so she's safe. My brother and his family are fine, although half of their backyard is underwater and they're having to boil their water. Their son (the insurance salesman) and his family are bunking in with his parents as their home has 5'-6' of water in their basement and no power. Bridges are out all over the place and major highways are closed.
8 There's some good video of the area flooding here.
Oh, God, this is really tragic! ...
8 IT'S hard to exercise your philanthropic impulses in Aspen - you can't find any poor people to accept your largesse. When the Food & Wine Magazine Classic ended in the Colorado Rocky Mountain resort last weekend, there were lots of leftovers at the Champagne Mumm "hospitality house" where VIP chefs, restaurateurs and sommeliers rested between events. Not wanting to waste the Tsar Nicoulai caviar, Perigord truffles, squabs, Serrano ham and other delicacies which had been fed to such culinary superstars as Bobby Flay, Ming Tsai, Jose Andres, Drew Nieporent, and Jacques and Claudine Pépin, the organizers tried to locate a homeless shelter nearby. "They found out there were no poor nor homeless in the vacation town of the rich and famous," said one insider. "Local volunteers finally found a Catholic church that would accept the culinary goods." Potluck dinner, indeed.

ZEN & THE KA-CHING EFFECT OF THE LEFT
Great interview with Ann Coulter. Read her rant on the half-vast left-wing's ever-shifting defintion of the word "imminent." Read what she thinks of Kerry ("dorkus erectus") and of Sean Penn and his Ann Coulter doll. Then buy her book and really drive the libs crazy.
Ann Coulter Ecstatic: Enemies Stoke Sales— ‘They’re Like My Pets’
By Sunday, June 25, Ms. Coulter’s book was No. 1 on the New York Times nonfiction best-seller list. And that was thanks largely to Mr. Lauer’s interview, and the ensuing liberal firestorm.
Why is it, I asked, that liberals tend to get away with over-the-top remarks, like when Cindy Sheehan called President Bush “the biggest terrorist in the world”?
“Because they send out victims as spokespeople!” she said. “Not any more, I might add! I think I ended that little trick. Oh, they’ll still do it, but everyone’s going to be sitting back in their living room rolling their eyes now.”
She talks about Casey Sheehan …
I write about him in the book,” she said. “He is an amazing American hero—that was the story that was being lost in all of this. As she becomes Dennis Rodman and just makes a spectacle of herself, he was a great American patriot. For one thing, he had already re-enlisted. He didn’t have to go; he died on a mission he was volunteering for to help save his buddies—he was incredibly heroic. And I think it’s too bad that most people don’t know that.”

IS IT IN HIS KISS?
I was originally going to write about "The Kiss." The one between 55-year-old Rush and 35-year-old Mary Lynn Rajskub, a.k.a. Chloe. There are rumors that these two are more than just casual, that a kiss is not just a kiss in this case.
And then comes the news that he was stopped at customs, like a hardened criminal, upon his return from the Dominican Republic.
Mac Ranger wants to know: Did the State Attorney's Office and PBSO lie in wait for Rush? If so, it's an incredible waste of time as this wouldn't be enough for a violation of his agreement, and it's not necessarily illegal in florida to have a prescription without your name on it so long as the doctor can verify he prescribed it to you ...
Okay, but what I want to know is why was he in the Dominican Republic in the first place? Vacation? or something else. And where was Chloe? Just wondering. I have no idea. It's not like Rush confides in me.
8 Aaron thinks Chloe slipped the Viagara in his luggage ;~)
Speaking of someone who buys his Viagra buy the pound ... Here's the ol' Horn Dog Chief himself, the original make love not war president:
Former President Bill Clinton told students Monday night that his new relationship with former President George H.W. Bush is an example of how people can overcome differences to do good.
"You have to try to make more partners and fewer terrorists, more friends and fewer enemies," Clinton said.
Yeah, right. And all the while he's thinking about trying to make every hot little co-ed in the place.
Rush's show today should draw huge ratings. Can't wait!
UPDATE: Rush opened his show with humor -- 'HOW DID BOB DOLE'S LUGGAGE GET ON MY AIRPLANE? I TOLD MY DOCTOR I WAS WORRIED ABOUT THE NEXT ELECTION'... -- and referred to his Dominican trip as a "guys' weekend" (a'hem -- wink wink, nod nod) . Him and the "24" gang ;~)

WAKE ME WHEN THEY GET TO THE POLITICIANS
I did a search on the NY Times article for the word "Clinton," and found nothing. I figure the best stuff in the Pellicano case contains at least one mention of America's first white trash president. We've known for years that the Clintons used "the Pelican" for some of their dirty work.
Pellicano Case Moves Beyond Hollywood
LOS ANGELES, June 25 — Until now the Pellicano wiretapping case has seemed the kind of down-and-dirty imbroglio that could only happen in Hollywood, where a private eye's underworld patois could impress movie people familiar with noir clichés, allured by real physical danger and accustomed to getting whatever they want.
But confidential F.B.I. records show that the scandal's tentacles have extended beyond show-business figures to reach people prominent in the rarified worlds of fine art and classical music.
BABE, IT AIN'T NO LIE
Yes, it's true: Ann Coulter is a Deadhead.
I'm not, but my son, Zappa (the anarchist), was and maybe still is.
I couldn't get Ann to wear a headband and smear her body with purple Crisco, but she did model one of her tie-dyed Dead shirts.
This really is a great interview Taylor Hill had with Ann, what he called the most surreal interview I have ever done in my life. His politics are not Ann's, so he was blown away that she agreed. Thanks to Lucianne for linking it as I never would have read it otherwise.
"Deadheads Are What Liberals Claim to Be But Aren't"
The one time I missed not being able to go to Dead shows more than any other since Jerry died was during the Clinton impeachment. There was so much viciousness - killed cats, punctured tires, threats, investigations and slander against those of us favoring impeachment. (Anthony Pellicano, you'll recall – the Hollywood private investigator now accused of criminal conspiracy, attempted murder, and making criminal threats – was working for the Clintons during the Monica Lewinsky investigation.) I don't really care what people say about me – I'm a Christian so there's nothing anyone can ever do to me – but I kept thinking: “Boy, would I like to go to a Dead show and dance with happy, friendly deadheads for just one night!”
My collection of Dead tapes, by the way, was the reason I heard one of the Linda Tripp tapes before Ken Starr did. Tripp's lawyer obviously needed to hear the tape before turning it over to the prosecutor, but he only had an old 1950's tape player and couldn't get it to work and Ken Starr wanted the tape the next morning. He was terrified he'd hit the wrong button and erase the evidence. In the wee hours of the morning, it occurred him, a Deadhead himself, that he knew one person in D.C. who definitely had a tape machine. So, at around 2 AM, he called me and asked to come over to use my tape deck.
Deadheads believe in freedom – not a government telling people how much water they can have in their toilets or where they can smoke or whether they should be allowed to own a gun.
One of my Dead friends I met at Vail made candles for Grateful Dead merchandizing. His daily routine consisted of waking up, smoking a bowl, and turning on the Rush Limbaugh radio show while he made his candles.
