Erotique! Internationale!

The Missing Economic Indicator
Dick Cheney, speaking in Cincinatti (where EVERYBODY apparently is, from actors to writers, to Republicans, to Democrats, all shamelessly courting the “swing” vote), said that eBay is not being properly considered in the examination of the modern economy. "That's a source that didn't even exist 10 years ago," he said. "Four hundred thousand people make some money trading on eBay."
Also not considered: yard sales, flea markets, and armed robbery.

Holding a Drudge
The Killian memo forgery allegations got Matt Drudge all excited, apparently, because on Friday he put in a link to - what else? - Vince Foster. Apparently, Foster's suicide note was a forgery, and he was really murdered by Bill Clinton. Ditto Ron Brown. You didn’t know this?

Y? Because We Love You.
Michael Eisner will leave Disney in 2006
Tired of cranes? Apparently, erotic origami is a new trend.
Folding pieces of paper to depict various sexual positions doesn’t sound like a lot of fun to me, but then again, I’m a lanyard man. Always have been. Always will be.

Got Porn?
An Australian study (according to Pravda) shows that pornography might be beneficial. Professor of psychology Alan McKey took a survey of a thousand-plus internet porn users, and concluded, "It came as a surprise to us that pornography is in actual fact a good thing in many ways. About 90 per cent of pornography users who use it every day said that it produces a very positive effect."
Positive effect. Is that what we're calling it now?

Sex on Brain, I Guess.
Reuters informs me that China's communist leaders, trying to eliminate porn, have ordered severe punishment for anyone offering phone sex services. Maybe the Chinese phone sex operators should move to Australia.

Back to Pravda
“Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili demands Russia should withdraw its troops from an army base from the Black Sea coast. According to the Georgian president, Russian soldiers dry their underwear in the streets, confusing local residents.”
Mikhail Saakashvili said, for the record, "They publicly dry their underwear, and the soldiers of the once-great army are lazing around on armored vehicles. I do not think it is good for Russia.”
Don’t they have laundromats in Georgia?

I Hate To Be a Bother, But Is This Phone Box Occupied?
John Cleese is working on an a new version of Superman, examining how he might have developed if he had grown up in the UK. SUPERMAN: TRUE BRIT will be out in November.
