Homer Simpson would love the newest taste sensation in minor league baseball: the doughnut burger.Read the article for more amazing horsehide edibles from Sauget, Illinois.
Head to a Gateway Grizzlies game and this gut-buster could be yours. We kid you not. The Gateway Grizzlies of the Frontier League promised to create "Baseball's Best Burger" in time for the team's opener in late May. And they appear to have succeeded.
The ballpark sandwich will include a hamburger topped with sharp cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon -- all between a "bun" made of a sliced Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnut.
From the opening paragraph of Turning Angel by Greg Iles, #10 on the Publishers Weekly hardcover fiction bestseller list the week of 1/23/06, as quoted in the magazine:"... She bobbed in the current beneath the Highway 61 bridge, naked and unbloodied, not yet gray, limp as a sleeping child. She rolled with the creek, which wound through the woods toward the paper mill and crashed into the Mississippi River in a maelstrom of brown waves. The girl made this journey alone and unknowing, but soon she would whip the town into another kind of maelstrom, one that would make the river seem placid by comparison."Sigh.

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, testifying today before the Senate Appropriations Committee:"The plan is to prevent a civil war, and to the extent one were to occur, to have the, from a security standpoint, have the Iraqi security forces deal with it to the extent they're able to."

Dear Senator Kerry:Here's the list of names Kerry and Kennedy didn't make:
I am sorely disappointed to see that you did not support Senator Russ Feingold's filibuster against the PATRIOT Act. Senator Feingold offers genuine leadership to the Democratic party on the most vital issue facing the nation, terrorism and the response that a free people should make to it. That you and Senator Kennedy voted to extend the Act will in the future be a part of the chronicle of the decline and fall of the Democratic Party.
It is bad enough that the provisions of the PATRIOT act constitute a precise, formal assault on the rights enumerated and implied in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. What is worse, a vote for the Act is a vote supporting an insidious regime that has not only abrogated virtually every one of those rights, but has also operated torture and foreign detention camps filled with uncharged prisoners who will never see any form of due process, however debased.
I don't think Americans want these things. I don't think Americans want cowardly senators who vote for them. I certainly don't. You are backing the wrong side. I do not know where the vigorous, brave leadership to challenge the destruction of our democracy will come, but it does not appear that it will come from you or the Democratic Party of which you are a leader.
This was a moment when all it took was a simple, if futile, gesture of support and the Senators from Massachusetts, those two "great liberals", stood instead with the torturers.

You know, if we had cameras in all our Representative's and Senator's offices, and had all their phones tapped, so that all of their conversations were monitored... then there would be no more corruption!Go,craigie!
I, for one, am willing to give up a little more privacy for them in exchange for a little more security for me.
