The Lonely Astronaut

The year is 1972.
It's our last trip to the moon.
But one of them is gathering rocks
when the capsule hatch door locks...
Now he's The Lonely Astronaut.

The shows.

I can't believe they even had golf on the list

I'd like to see a year where all they do is hang from those rings If you have been in a room with me you have probably heard that I like my Olympics sports just the way they are. I'm like the Amish that way. Pick a year and stick to it. Although to clarify, my year is 1972, well after the invention of buttons. In addition, I don't support sports involving animals or any technology that can be differentiated from another competitor. Neither equestian or NASCAR events should be Olympic events. Everyone gets the same bow, sled, or shot put in my world.
I was originally against baseball as a competition for the same reasons this group seems to have booted it but I'd actually have voted to keep it since there are many nations playing on their own time and ,more to the point, there are no professional athletes crossing over to screw it up like basketball. Olympic baseball seems to work despite MLB and their 'roided up selves. Softball, I'd like to say the same for soft ball, and I will when another country fields a team for a reason other than the Olympics.
I would also like them to go back to the summer/winter in the same year rotation where I could count on election, olympics, and leap year all at once.
Maybe they could have a coupole of other sets and have the summer or winter games every six years by adding a slot for something like Live 8. I know I'd be psyched for 20 days of Lou Reed.

Karl, Karl Bo Barl-The Plame Game

If you like your source so much why not have them join you? Somewhere in the bowels of the White House there is a young ensign in a red shirt who is realizing too late that when Cheney sent him, Rove and Dr McCoy the planet to leak some CIA agent's name that it wasn't going to end well.
That's my take. This could be the beginning of a giant flameout and someone is just trying to get ahead of the spinning mess but, it's not. I'm pretty sure that this mysterious friend of Matthew Cooper, who is not named Rove or Gonzales, is going to take one for the team and compartmentalize the treason. Shortly after this becomes public record we'll then hear that the source had been "behaving erratically," probably seeing a psychiatrist and likely on medication.
I am all for protecting a source and I am also behind the court's decision in a case that may have exposed a CIA agent to assasination. Why though is Novak walking the streets? What is it that makes outing Valerie Plame his job and lets him pass the blame to his confidential source?

Oyez, Oyez. The betting window is now open

Pick you favorite conservative judge I am calling Gonzales the front runner. What's your pick?

Nixon, Titan, Brazillian, Winchell It's the new news quiz

Quiz Me! I got three and am embarassed to admit missing the Titan question. I should have checked my detailed map of the solar system. Bill got four. His map is actually a tattoo. He's left instructions in his will to be flayed and the map donated to a local school when he passes on.
