Bits and Pieces for the Week of January 4 - 10

Ewwww. Gross! (Mike)

Woohoo! It looks like my daily commute to and from to work (50-mile roundtrip) is going to get much easier on Fridays. (Of course, that's not how I really feel about this economic travesty.) (Mike)

If you're relying only on American media to learn what's going on in Gaza, then you are getting only the sanitized, pro-Israeli side of the story. You can get much more unbiased news from international sources such as Al Jazeera. (Mike)

I'm guessing that most of the 3.4 million people in 2008 who were added to the rolls of those who want to work full-time but can only find part-time jobs also don't have adequate health insurance. (Mike)

As Joe The Plumber explains, apparently Christians are extra-special, and "God" goes out of his way to protect them. So I guess that, if you're Christian, then you should be counting your blessings? (Mike)

Normally I reject the Israeli government as any sort of compassionate or humane organization due to their bullying, oppression and repression of their neighboring Palestinians. But this atrocity reaches the depths of evil that not even Bush/Cheney can equal. (Mike)

Might want to come home more often... serves him right! "What are you doing here?": man asks wife at brothel "WARSAW (Reuters) - A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment's employees." (7 of 6)

The residential real estate market, which as you know has already lost trillions of dollars in value, is still in freefall with no immediate end in sight. Next up is the imploding commercial real estate market. (Mike)

Other countries' wars are much more important - and warrant much more televised coverage - than our own." - Atrios Spot on Atrios, spot on! (7 of 6)

Hey, 7 of 6: One might ask what the wife was doing there, but on the other hand, what was the husband doing there? Talk about a circular stream of money... the wife works there and brings the income home, while the husband goes back and spends it. He should just pay his wife directly for sex.

Wonder how many times their paths may have crossed without either knowing the other was there?
