As the photographer points out, "This does rule out the terrifying possibility of an unkillable zombie Bin Laden." Thank goodness.

Pop-up ad seen at ESPN.com. Can Southern California's Premier Resort really be named Morongo?
Secondly, sure he's an international sociopath of the first order, but I'm a little disappointed with the most recent al-Zarqawi edict. Democracy is a lie? That's the best you can do?
I've come to expect more, Abu Musab. I've come to expect more.

I know this is just my gear fetish talking, but I'm really excited about the unveiling of the Airbus A380 on Tuesday.
This passenger airplane is significantly larger than Boeing's 747, which has been the largest passenger plane since its introduction in the 1970's.
The A380 has two levels that run the length of the plane. If equipped to carry only economy passengers, each A380 can carry up to 840 people. The vehicle is large enough that airlines are considering adding amenities like an office, a childrens' play area, a gym, a bar, shops, a smoking area, and a mini casino.

"This whole area was littered with commercialism," said Greg Ferrando, the 43-year-old from Maui, Hawaii jogging on Patong Beach, Thailand. "There were hundreds of beach chairs out here. I prefer the sand."
Too bad that the removal of all that litter brought with it abundant human suffering.

Not only was Tucker Carlson canned and Crossfire cancelled, but the new president of CNN cited Jon Stewart in his rationale for these decisions. Ouch.
"I guess I come down more firmly in the Jon Stewart camp," said Jonathan Klein. "I doubt that when the President sits down with his advisers they scream at him to bring him up to date on all of the issues. I don't know why we don't treat the audience with the same respect."
After Jon Stewart dissed Carlson with both hands last year, I almost take pity on the guy for being let go in such a public and nasty way.
...of course, the key word is almost. Flacks like Carlson are firmly part of the problem in this lowest-common-denominator, Fox News-inspired race to the bottom among conventional media outlets.
See you on MSGOP, Carlson.

Could there be a better headline than Heidi Klum and Seal engaged to wed?
My only regret is that the writer ruins this perfect headline by following it with a story explaining how this Seal is Seal the Singer, and not Seal the Flippered Animal.
Since supermodels represent the public face of the anti-fur movement, I like the idea of one of them deciding to go ahead and marry a marine mammal.

Another former Bush White House employee, Christine Todd Whitman (former EPA Administrator, former governor of New Jersey), has written a tell-most tale of her time in the White House and her take on the current Republican party.
Whitman's book hits shelves on January 27, so I suspect that this page will be erased in short order. Enjoy it while you can. Here's the archive.org copy in case the Bush webstapo delete her profile before you get the chance to read it.
