Evils of drugs and alcohol illustrated

Obama Says He Drank, Tried Drugs As Teen

Presidential hopeful Barack Obama on Tuesday told high school students that when he was their age he was hardly a model student, experimenting with illegal drugs and drinking alcohol.

"You know, I made some bad decisions that I've actually written about. You know, got into drinking…"

And, see what happened to Obama? Became a Democrat. Bad decision. Yep, drugs and alcohol is nasty stuff for a kid to get into.

Postscript [January 29, 2010]: It's worse than I thought at the time: The chaser was progressive koolaid.

Chavez doesn't know the meaning of 'shame'

'Shut Up' Chavez Ringtone Hit in Spain
MADRID, Spain — Many Spaniards were so amused when their king told Venezuela's president to "shut up" they want to hear the words every time their phone rings.

About half a million people have downloaded a mobile phone ringtone featuring the phrase "Por que no te callas?" or "Why don't you shut up?"

Heh. But, the blockheaded Chavez is too self absorbed to be embarrassed.


Speaking of paparazzi

Clooney lectures reckless photographer

George Clooney is cut off by a photographer and makes a 'traffic stop.' Clooney lectured the photog over his driver's reckless behavior while the lamo paparazzo protests that he wasn't the driver. Jerk.

Paparazzi and Common Sense: Mutually Exclusive?

On Tape: Britney Runs Light with Kids in Car?

Yes, she made a left turn on red. And, yes, she was on the left side of the center stripe. Why? Because the paparazzi were standing in the street blocking the way. What's up with that?

It seems to me the paparazzi are part of the cause—part of the problem. They need to back off. Their right to earn a paycheck does not trump public safety or the safety of a driver and passengers no matter who that driver is.
