Okay guys.

Unless work is really mean and won't give me the day off, I have a hair cut appointment coming up in a couple of weeks.

No, Sue, I'm not going blonde.

I do want to go shorter, though. I'm tired of having long(ish) hair. It's too flyaway, gets staticy really easy, and I can't deal with it in my face.

I found a couple of styles that I sort of like, but I also wanted to know what you guys think and if you have any suggestions... any favorite short(ish) styles that you just adore and think I should consider.

At least it isn't only the US...

"An Australian court ruled Wednesday that a convicted heroin dealer can claim a 220,000 Australian dollar (US$165 million; euro 129 million) tax deduction for money that was stolen during a drug deal."

Doh.

Okay, this is so my favorite commercial this campaign... and it's not even for a specific candidate!

It gives away the point of the commercial if I tell you the title, but just go here for the high-bandwidth wmv or here for the low bandwidth.

More election season headlines.

"The left wing British newspaper The Guardian is backing away from a column appearing to call for the assassination of President Bush, calling it an "ironic joke."

"On Saturday, columnist Charlie Brooker lamented an impending Bush victory that he said would bring "four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley, Jr. -- where are you now that we need you?"

"The column has since been replaced on the Guardian's website by an apology calling Booker's comments -- quote -- "flippant and tasteless."

"WASHINGTON -- U.S. forces searched several times last year the Iraqi military base from which 380 tons of explosives vanished -- including one check a week before Saddam Hussein was driven out of power. But the military saw no signs of a huge quantity of munitions, Pentagon officials told FOX News."

Some head dweeb from the BBC was at Columbia University this week chastizing journalism students for -- get this -- how pro-Bush the mainstream media is. Of course, this is the BBC's idea of journalistic ethics (scroll down past the ad).

And just because it amuses me...

"KOMO-TV in Washington state reports that a school district in Puyallup has banned Halloween celebrations in part because witch costumes might offend local Wiccans."
