The topic for the local NPR show this morning is "How to Make Cleveland a Gay Friendly City" so it can attract gay tourists who spend twice as much as non-gay tourists, according to some statistics. Really, you can't make this kind of stuff up. Personally I'm thinking they could have lots of stores specialising in track lighting, or maybe have show tunes blasting out of loudspeakers on the streets, or maybe build a bunch of Greek baths and whatnot. I hope tomorrow they try to figure out what to do to make it a Jew friendly tourist city. I'm thinking lots of dollar stores that sell matza-ball soup and whatnot. Or better yet, lets try to attract short tourists - we can build a mall that's 3/4 the size of a regular mall, and staff it with midgets and dwarfs to make the short people feel better about themselves.

Speaking of inane ideas, Rush Limburgher has been nominated for a.. heh.. Nobel Peace Prize!!! What, Bill O'Reilly wasn't available?? Rush does a fine job entertaining right-wing nutjobs, and I tip my hat to him as he is skilled at what he does, but how much crack would you have to ingest in order to even mention his name in the same sentence as the words Nobel Peace Prize??? Really, Oprah is more deserving than that big fat Limbaugh moron.

Speaking of that dopey Oprah rube, I'm making my 2007 book list available for any middle aged stressed out mini-van driving soccer mom who is incapable of thinking for herself and is looking for an alternative to Oprah's book list. Be sure to check back often for updates and whatnot. Also, I plan on opening up a school for poor white boys later in the Fall. Of course if I can't raise funds for the school I may have to settle for building a Greek bath for poor white boys instead. Whatever.

Speaking of poor white boys, could Rex GROSSman have sucked any worse during the Mediocre Bowl? Really, you know you're in trouble when a 10 minute Prince show is better than the actual game. For the record I thought Prince did a damn fine job, especially since it was live and raining like a mofo. That cat's a damn fine musician. SHORT PEOPLE REPRESENT!

Speaking of inane retarded white people - President Bush is rolling out his new budget!! Looks like he's serious about making the elderly and poor sacrifice in order to fight the evil terra-ists. Bravo! If I was going to save some money to pay for a war I'd fuck the poor up the ass instead of taxing the wealthy too!! Fuck those poor and elderly people - why don't they just go get a high paying job like the rest of us. Damn loosers.

I also applaud his "no time-table" mantra for bringing the troops back home, as that would cause the terra-ists to sit back and wait for us to leave. Meanwhile if we sneak out and leave without telling them they'll never notice that we're gone!!! BWUAHAHAHA!! WOOOOO! WHEEEEEE!! Brilliant strategy!

That Prince Show was better than by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #1 Wed Feb 07, 2007 at 05:23:53 AM EST
most of the Stupor Bowls. Heck, it may have been good enough to justify the actual existence of the StuporBowl.

Rockers rockin in the rain is usually a good show. I saw the Rolling Stones in 89 at RFK in the pouring rain. They really got into it. One of the Best Shows Evar.

I drove through the rain to go to the record store once and I seem to recall buying some good CD's that day so I'm going to have to AWTP too.

Aye - that was a crap game by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #3 Wed Feb 07, 2007 at 05:46:03 AM EST
At least the first half was entertaining but I couldn't help thinking that neither team deserved to be there.

You may have missed the actual SB game, Bob. by ammoniacal (4.00 / 1) #7 Wed Feb 07, 2007 at 05:53:00 AM EST
It was held on January 6th, when Seattle played Dallas.

The NE vs Indy game was the REAL Super Bowl. Heck, even the Chi vs Bal game was better than the SB.

I don't recall Seattle playing in January?????? Did they make the playoffs???

Pro: He's got right stones for invoking the Nuremberg Defense.

Con: I think he invoked it because he didn't want to get sand in his pussy.

Pro: Soldiers should be encouraged to contemplate the legality of orders and subsequently act within the confines of the Law.

Con: He's a fucking commissioned officer (i.e. Duty, Honor, Country) and his missed movement means that some other yamhead is pulling double-duty for him.

Pro: The judge was right to declare a mistrial for a procedural error.

Con: Any finding of guilt would have been over-turned, due to the judge refusing to allow the Nuremberg Defense in court.

Pro: Hundreds of thousands of dollars were added to the local economy, due to the media focus on the trial.

Con: Traffic south of here has been fuckered, and Sean Penn entered my county without authorisation.

Books etc by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #8 Wed Feb 07, 2007 at 05:57:36 AM EST
I saved kite from my to-sell pile.. Been cleaning out our bookcases recently, and have a substantial pile of books to give away/sell to the used book store.. Might be a diary give-away at a later date, though I fear the shipping would kill me.

So I've done 2 of your books, almost got the devil book based on the NPR review, but passed on it.

And ThunderStruck is by the wrong author. The correct author is Angus Young.

Also, from your holed entry, mrs clock asked a good question, whatever happened to your street lawyer-esque "should I sleep with my buddies wife who was hitting on me" troll ?

Thunderstruck was better by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #14 Wed Feb 07, 2007 at 06:27:52 AM EST
Devil in White City was pretty good, but nothing special. I found the Marconi/Dr. Crippen story line in Thunderstruck much more compelling. Actually I think it's rather odd to mix these historic events with famous murders together in one book but the guy is a good writer nonetheless.

yeah, the game started off great by gzt (2.00 / 0) #10 Wed Feb 07, 2007 at 06:09:07 AM EST
but unfortunately the kickoff didn't set the pace for the rest of the thing. but prince was pretty intense, did not disappoint.

Would be a great way to attract the pedophile demographic to your fine city. I hear they're usually wealthy god-fearing republican types. They're probably in the money pretty well.

Rush wasnt nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by lm (2.00 / 0) #17 Wed Feb 07, 2007 at 07:49:03 AM EST
From the press release: ``submits the name of Rush Limbaugh as an unsolicited nomination.''

This is only a nomination for the Peace Prize in the same way that any male weight lifter can be said to be training for the Mr. Universe competition. They can train all they want, but unless they've been invited to participate by the competition itself, they aren't really in the running.

The Nobel committee only accepts nominations from nominators who have been invited to submit nominations. Law firms such as Landmark are not qualified to even be invited to submit nominations.

Gosh darn that liberal media that always uncritically publishes those danged press releases by people are looking for free advertising!


There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.

When has Bob ever let facts get in the way of a good story (or mid-quality rant)? I mean, we're talking about a guy who is still pushing the "fact" that Oprah's demonstrably multi-racial school is just for blacks in order to get in his jabs. Details are beside the point when you're scoring zingers like these, baby!

Actually, it turns out that by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #25 Sat Feb 10, 2007 at 10:34:42 AM EST
the nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize are open. You could nominate Bob, if you wanted.

IIRC, a year or two ago someone left-wing type was being hyped as "nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize" and the right wing bloggers figured out that the guy had nominated himself (or some such).

I expect they nominated Rush in more-or-less the same spirit.

You and Wikipedia need to have words. by Christopher Robin was Murdered (2.00 / 0) #26 Sat Feb 10, 2007 at 12:33:38 PM EST
They seem to think the nominations are closed.

"Forms, which amount to a personal and exclusive invitation, are sent to about three thousand selected individuals to invite them to submit nominations. In the case of the Peace Prize, for example, any of the following people may be asked to make nominations: members of national assemblies and governments of states; members of international courts; university rectors; professors of social sciences, history, philosophy, law and theology; directors of peace research institutes and foreign policy institutes; Peace Prize laureates and/or board members of organisations that have been awarded the Peace Prize; active and former members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee; former advisers appointed by the Norwegian Nobel Institute.

Similar requirements are in place for the other Prizes."

That's a fairly wide open kind of 'closed' by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #27 Sat Feb 10, 2007 at 05:20:38 PM EST
At one point, a defense lawyer got a death-row inmate nominated in an attempt to get publicity for his case.

Damnit, preview not post. by ObviousTroll (4.00 / 1) #28 Sat Feb 10, 2007 at 05:22:57 PM EST
When I went to check if the apostrophes in the subject line worked, I accidentally submitted.

There was supposed to be a second sentence to that post.

"You're right - it's not quite as open as I thought, but it's still pretty open. At one point, a defense lawyer got a death-row inmate nominated in an attempt to get publicity for his case."

short tourists by martingale (2.00 / 0) #20 Wed Feb 07, 2007 at 02:04:10 PM EST
Bob, there's a Walt Disney on line 2 who wants to talk to you about short tourists. He says the idea's already been taken, and he'll sue you if you write anything more about it. Also, there's this funny background music about small worlds after all, but I'm not sure what to make of that.
