Christmas Day in the "City of Brotherly Love"
[Is that just east of Brokeback Mountain?]
Be glad this guy is off the streets...
It is highly annoying when people talk in the theatre. Just another sign of parents failing to teach basic courtesy to children. While I'm disappointed in the talkers, I'm thinking birth control for the parents and a boycott of theatres that have wimpy, do-nothing ushers.
And what's with the slugs who can't carry their garbage from their seats to a trash can? Your children are watching and learning all the wrong things from you. Maybe it's your fault that the ushers have been taken from their original job and turned into cleaners.

Why do you think they call it Chinese herbal medicine?
A two pound stash has been discovered in a 2700 yr old Gobi Desert grave. According to researchers in the Journal of Experimental Botany who found only female plant material with high THC: "it was clearly cultivated for psychoactive purposes, rather than as fibre for clothing or as food."
A Rastafarian in China should come as no surprise...

Outsourcing Major League Baseball?
Just kidding: for many years, the best players have been coming from everywhere but the US... Dominican Republic, Venzuela, Japan, Korea, Cuba, and now India. I loved the way reality tv was used to scout the potential
cricket bowlers pitchers.
Spring Training for them begins in February, Bradenton, FL.
