Columbus may be buried in Seville. Most famous explorers are now buried in cars, at least Columbus got a nice one. Lewis and Clark are buried in Hyundais, while DeSoto and Hudson are ... well, I guess you know those two.

Further proof you can find anything you want on the internet. Here's an entire site dedicated to women in Princess Leia bikinis. Some of them are cute. Others? Not so much.

Current Electoral Vote Predictor 2004 is now placing Ohio in the Bush camp, raising the Bush total to 296 (270 needed to elect). Ohio has been "flip-flopping". The count does not reflect any post-debate polls.

She's gonna blow! This must be the 20th time I've used that headline, but the first time it wasn't about Paris Hilton! Mount St. Helens could erupt within 24 hours, so get your butts far away from there.

It's the zany new Norwegian sport for tourists: killing baby seals. By gum, ever since I moved from Miami and quit playing jai-alai, I've been looking for a sport I could really love. Now I think I've died and gone to heaven. Unfortunately, Norway still has a ban on assault weapons, tactical nukes are universally forbidden, and they won't let you club them to death, so you have to kill them with single shot weapons. For about a thousand bucks, they give you four days of sport and a guarantee of two seals! The company's website shows photos of hunters posing with their kill and offers trips that not only include accommodation and food (all the herring you can eat!) but offer help with cutting up and preserving seal carcasses. Plus, training is available for beginners!! I'm off. Off, I tell you. I love this sport. It's almost time for spring training for my new team, the Bergen Mooses! OK, it isn't spring, but the seasons in Norway look pretty much alike. (By the way, to cut the sarcasm for a minute, although the ever-gullible Guardian says it is about killing "baby seals", I don't think that it has anything to do with babies. The Norwegians believe that seals have to be "harvested" to protect the cod supply, just as we realize that deer herds sometimes have to be thinned.)

Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings offered support Saturday for the beleaguered Dan Rather, saying that Rather has many good points. He is an above-average speller, and a fairly good tipper!

Parental Controls: The Truth About Pornography. Honest to God, we live in a post-ironic world. I can't tell whether this comic is written by fanatical nutbags, or by someone satirizing fanatical nutbags.

Did you know - Joaquin Phoenix changed his name from Leaf Phoenix? His sibs are Summer, Liberty, Rain and River, so I always wondered why he had a standard name. (Oh, yeah, he also gives a rare interview.)

The trailer for MirrorMask: "'MirrorMask' centers on Helena, a 15 year old girl in a family of circus entertainers, who often wishes she could run off and join real life. After a fight with her parents about her future plans, her mother falls quite ill and Helena is convinced that it is all her fault. On the eve of her mother's major surgery, she dreams that she is in a strange world with two opposing queens, bizarre creatures, and masked inhabitants. All is not well in this new world - the white queen has fallen ill and can only be restored by the MirrorMask, and it's up to Helena to find it. But as her adventures continue, she begins to wonder whether she's in a dream, or something far more sinister."

The trailer for Shooting Shona. "Shooting Shona" is an intimate thriller about the disappearance of Shona's flatmate and her subsequent struggle to find her... Strange things are happening in Belsize Park. Anonymous love letters lie on the kitchen counter. Shona has been randomly receiving them for weeks. They make her uncomfortable, only reminding her of how lonely she really is. Her closest friends seem to be moving on in their lives. One morning, Shona finds the shower running and her flatmate has vanished. It becomes apparent that something horrible may have happened when a sinister man breaks into her apartment and rummages through the place. All the while she is certain that she is being followed. Circumstances draw Shona to meet a mysterious man called Art, and eventually his odd drug-dealing friend, and they find themselves piecing together the mystery of Shona's missing flatmate.

Various trailers and clips from 2046. "He was a writer. He thought he wrote about the future but it really was the past. In his novel, a mysterious train left for 2046 every once in a while. Everyone who went there had the same intention.....to recapture their lost memories. It was said that in 2046, nothing ever changed. Nobody knew for sure if it was true, because nobody who went there had ever come back - except for one. He was there. He chose to leave. He wanted to change."

A Bedford couple named their baby son Drew Peacock before realising that it sounded exactly like Droopy Cock
  • You'd think the vicar would have said something before the baptism, but the Rev. Dwight Mannsburden found nothing unusual in the boy's name.
  • The boy's proud dad is, of course, now known as Pop Peacock.
  • The boy's mom, Mrs Peacock, is known from the sensational trial in which she was found not guilty of murdering Nigel Boddy in the Bedford Conservatory with a lead pipe.

Latest Newsweek poll puts Kerry ahead. 49-46 in a two-way race. 47-45 with Nader factored in. At this point, Bush's decision to debate seems to have been a colossal blunder, but I guess all of that could change with future debates.

Driver files federal suit in fight over rates. You would think Daniel Steiner should get a medal. He's an entrepreneur who found a great way to make a living while helping people. He transports people to medical clinics for their appointments, and he does it damned cheap. He's happy, his customers are happy. Only one problem: he has run afoul of the rules requiring "limo drivers" to charge a minimum of $40 per ride.
