Enron's Top Dogs Still Flying Luxury Jets
An Enron spokesperson has confirmed a total of eight corporate jet trips
to New York and Washington since the bankruptcy, saying the flights were
more efficient than commercial travel.
A round-trip commercial flight, Houston
to New York, could be as little as $365 in coach.
The same trip on an Enron jet would cost tens of thousands of dollars.

The repeal of the Clinton rule by the Bushies -- nicely timed for minimum attention between
Christmas and New Year's -- stopped federal agencies from considering the lawbreaking record
of corporations in the process of granting contracts. As you know, many corporations repeatedly
violate the law, and if and when they are caught, they pay a slap-on-the-wrist fine and continue
on their merry way. A study by The Associated Press found hundreds of contractors that remain
eligible for federal contracts despite having been convicted of or sued for defrauding the government.

In Murder Case Spotlight
Son Of Confessed Hit Man May Have Called Famous Leg Spreader
Famous Leg spreader
Laura Schlessinger, the queen of the national talk-show airwaves, was thrust front and center
at a pre-trial hearing in the Beth Carpenter murder-for-hire case Tuesday.
At issue was whether the son of the confessed
hitman in the case is the same person
who called Dr. Laura's show almost 14 months ago and claimed to be a killer.
"You are in bad company with Mr. BartCop from
known drunk and business failure three times."
-- one of my stalkers
I lost a lot less money in business than someone we all know.
If my super-rich daddy bought me a baseball team to play with,
my business resume would look a lot like President Happy Crack's.
Scalia questions Catholic stance on death penalty
Antonin Scalia on Monday criticized his church's position against the death penalty,
saying that Catholic judges who believe capital punishment is wrong should resign.
After denying Americans their constitutionally guaranteed right
the power-hungry, sexually confused crazy man tries to take over the Catholic Church, too.

Terror from Bush?
by Marc Perkel
The question is - will Bush do something like that - just to hold onto power?
When he himself is predicting 2002 as a year of war?
Will it be an airplane? I think not! Airplanes
are so last year! What will he do?
Well - I could name some - but I don't want to give the son of a bitch and ideas
in case I thought of something they haven't.

Day 16 of the Shirley Manson log
...have not heard from Shirley.
c l i c k to o r d e r
Shirley, I got terribly addicted to beautifulgarbage when
my mind was empty.
Those songs have been playing over and over in my head for 115 days.
After a couple of months, I tried to replace those songs with Garbage 2.0 songs.
Now I have 25 songs that play constantly in my head.
It's taking a toll on what's left of my sanity.
I need an antidote.

Boy’s Quiet, With Good Reason
by Joe Conason
Until Vice President Dick Cheney surrenders the secret files of his Energy Task Force,
the complete history of the Bush administration’s entanglement with its favorite firm may
never be known. There are, however, many significant favors on the public record–and the
first took place within days after Mr. Bush’s inauguration.
Two pricks, Britney Spears, Bush Kids Gone Wild, Lord of the Rings Diary, Jenna Bush's boyfriend
lost $150K gambling at the Hard Rock (where my good friend Ben Affleck won $175K)

Letter to the Editor from yesterday's USA TODAY
Who is worse: Lay or Lindh?
I doubt that former Enron CEO Kenneth Lay,
other Enron executives,
their lawyers, accountants and board members wioll ever spend a day in jail.
I doubt that American-turned-Taliban John Walker Lindh will ever spend a day not in jail.
And yet, I wonder who has done more harm to American citizens?
"You better watch that sarcasm shit, boy.
I am the Central Scrutinizer and I don't like the tone
you use when talking about my man Kenny Boy.
Kenneth gave the president cash when we needed it most.
I think some secret torture for BartCop and this Arthur
Willner fella might teach both of you about respect."
Has anybody seen Greta Van Susteren's new show on ?
I saw her on Jon Stewart, and she told him Roger Ailes gave her complete autonomy.
For a lawyer, that's not a very bright thing to say.
That means every word out of her mouth is hers and hers alone,
so if she turns ditto-monkey Naziette on us, she can't blame her employer.
...does that mean it's her decision to talk to Horrendo Revolver?
Sorry, Greta, that wasn't nice.
Robert Bianco, TV critic for USA TODAY, said:
"Greta is TV's best legal analyst, renowned for
being independent, clear-headed
and careful, which are not qualities usually associated with her new employer."
"On Monday's show, she visited Sudan with Geraldo
Rivera, who placed support
for bin Laden among average Arabs at 25% 'at a bare minimum,' which is one of
those impossible to verify opinions posing as fact that Fox allows on the air all too often.
Give her fewer chances to be embarassed and her show might be worth a second look."
Did you know she took a cut in pay to go to Fox?
Ordinarily, I'd applaud a move like that, but you gotta wonder why she did it.
You know something that pisses me off?
When people pretend there never was a World Trade Center.
Maybe it has slowed down some, but right after the attack, there
was a rush
to alter or erase pictures of New York's skyline to eliminate the Twin Towers.
To me, that's as nutty as changing the faces of the men who raised the flag.
Someone sent me a great NY skyline picture ever, and I thought I'd share.
Click Here to see a damn nice picture of what was.
...I'm not nervous, ...not at all.
Hex is no problem for me.
I just hope the press doesn't find out about
my eye tick when I get nervous or drunk...
