Stop the Presses Blog

Stop the presses!
One of today’s headlines: “Analysts say media could influence views on pope's legacy, selection.”

Got porn?
Google’s co-founder Larry Page announced that the company wants to post homemade videos. In response to a question at the National Cable and Telecommunications Show in San Francisco, he said, "There might be an adult section, or something like that. I don't think that is going to be a big issue."

I don’t know if you knew this, but pornography is the primary reason people log on to the Web. I’ll bet you thought it was for the information.

Stop the journalist!
Hunter S. Thompson's ashes are going to be blasted from a cannon.

Stop Ted!
Ted Nugent, rightwing rocker, is suing concert promoters for cancelling his June 2003 concert in West Michigan. They cancelled his concert, allegedly, because he had done an interview in Colorado in which he used the word “nigger.”

In court, he admitted this, saying that it had been used as a compliment towards him by a “famous” black player: "…He said if you keep playing guitar like that, you're gonna be a ["N" word] when you grow up, with a broad smile on his face."

Nugent wants 100,000 bucks. He has several African-American and Latino players in his band.
He is also the author of KILL IT AND GRILL IT, which contains this: "Wild game meat has no equal. Tribe Nuge has not bought domestic flesh since 1969, and the quality of our average meal is nothing short of awe inspiring. When one responsibly procures his family's dinner by hand, each meal becomes a sacred rite, and the reality of life and death is undeniable. It is good, and so is the feast!"

Once you pick the BB’s from your teeth, take it from me, eating wild game is an excellent dining experience. I want to belong to Tribe Nuge! I want to reject domestic flesh!

Stop thief!
From AFP:
“Florida's legislature has approved a bill that would give residents the right to open fire against anyone they perceive as a threat in public, instead of having to try to avoid a conflict as under prevailing law.”

Stop Warren!
Warren Beatty may soon have a blog.

Stop energy!
James Howard Kunstler in ROLLING STONE:
“The term ‘global oil-production peak’ means that a turning point will come when the world produces the most oil it will ever produce in a given year and, after that, yearly production will inexorably decline. It is usually represented graphically in a bell curve. The peak is the top of the curve, the halfway point of the world's all-time total endowment, meaning half the world's oil will be left. That seems like a lot of oil, and it is, but there's a big catch: It's the half that is much more difficult to extract, far more costly to get, of much poorer quality and located mostly in places where the people hate us. A substantial amount of it will never be extracted.”
