Not Ready to Make Nice

Love 'em. Go buy their new record.

'Radical chicks':
“I'd rather have a smaller following of really cool people who get it,” Maguire tells TIME, “who will grow with us as we grow and are fans for life, than people that have us in their five-disc changer with Reba McEntire and Toby Keith. We don't want those kinds of fans. They limit what you can do.”
Here, here, Maddy!

Albright Faults Bush's Religious 'Certitude' :
"LONDON (May 22) - President Bush has alienated Muslims around the world by using absolutist Christian rhetoric to discuss foreign policy issues, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright says.

'I worked for two presidents who were men of faith, and they did not make their religious views part of American policy,' she said, referring to Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, both Democrats and Christians."

The only time I leave vacation days on the table is when I know that I'll get paid for them when I quit my job. Oh, and I'll quit a job. I ain't scared in that department.

Forfeiting vacation days:
"NEW YORK ( - When it comes to taking vacation days, a third of U.S. workers apparently aren't members of the clean-plate club.

Have a little restraint with portions and get your ass off the couch and excercise then problemed solved. They can pry my ham hock and fried okra from my cold, dead hand.

"Food is a strong emblem of identity for Southerners. It is one of the few cultural artifacts that both black and white Southerners embrace and hold in high esteem,'' said John Edge, director of the Southern Foodways Alliance at the Center for the Study of Southern Culture at the University of Mississippi. ``Segregation remains in many aspects of our daily lives in the South, but there is no segregation of our black-eyed peas and our collard greens.''"

Here is a quote from the ultimate loony, Ann Coulter: "Al Gore defended the (federal) gas tax (in 1993)...And mind you, this was before we knew Gore was clinically insane. Back when we thought he was just a double-talking stuffed shirt who seemed kind of gay."

I'll let this slide this time, but no more MAnn Coulter quotes, references etc are allowed to sully this blog. She's a waste of breath and shouldn't even be acknowledge on any level.
