Jolie and Pitt Issue Privacy Plea
  • I propose a deal. They give up their big-time acting careers and all of their possessions except enough to live on fifty grand a year, and the reporters will leave them alone, like everyone else who fits that description.

"13-year-old male and female students were forced by a teacher to watch porn because they didn't do their homework."
  • Yeah, that'll teach 'em.
  • You think that's bad. I had a teacher that made us watch Johnny Tremain as a punishment. Some of the worst goof-offs eventually went insane, and are still walking around Rochester singing that Liberty Tree song.

Five clips from United 93
  • Acclaimed filmmaker Paul Greengrass ("Bloody Sunday," "The Bourne Supremacy") writes and directs an unflinching drama that tells the story of the passengers and crew, their families on the ground and the flight controllers who watched in dawning horror as United Airlines Flight 93 became the fourth hijacked plane on the day of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil: September 11, 2001.

USA National Gas Prices - mapped by county
  • Some of the variance has to do with state taxes. Note Georgia, and Florida for a very clean example. Florida's state taxes are 17 cents per gallon higher than Georgia's. Georgia has the lowest gasoline taxes of any state in the lower 48 (Alaska is lower); Florida is one of the highest.
  • OK, trivia hounds - Nevada has the highest taxes of the contiguous 48 - but Hawaii is higher. Gas retailers in Elko, Nevada must be making just about no profit at all, unless they get some kind of state tax exemption in their county.
  • Gas taxes by state

The Smoking Gun - Estranged Wife Denise Richards Paints Scary Portrait Of Charlie Sheen
  • Sheen denied the charges, saying that Richards was just trying to ruin his reputation.
  • This reminds me of a line in Best of the West, a forgotten TV show. Christopher Lloyd played a baddie called the Calico Kid, and the hero asked him, "Shooting children and household pets? What about your reputation?" The Kid responded, "That IS my reputation."
  • Actually, the charges may have helped his reputation. I read the charges and Sheen isn't as bad as I thought.
