The Mazda 6 is being recalled because a yellow spider climbs into the vents and builds webs that could cause fires. Now, what is it about the Mazda 6 that attracts this sider? What dos it have that other cars don't have?
It's a puzzlement.
The Lege Strikes Again
Whenever I read or hear a story about the Texas Legislature, I think, "Wouldn't Mollie Ivins have fun with this one?"
This time, they have decided they need to really crack down on illegal immigration, so they presented a bill with a stiff, $10,000 fine for anyone hiring illegals. Then, at the very last minute before the vote, someone inserted a paragraph exempting people who hire domestics and yard workers. I guess life just wouldn't be worth living in Texas without a maid and yardman.
Texans. Gotta love 'em.
When We Don't Pay Teachers Enough........
Polics busted a prostitution ring in Springfield, MO last week and now, it seems that one of the women is a Springfield teacher. Police believe that she and her husband are the ringleaders.
We should alert the teachers who are facing layoffs in Wisconsin that there may be job openings in Springfield.
Some Day He'll Be Struck By Lightening
Arkansas' erstwhile Governor, Mike Huckabee, is at it again. In order to appeal to the far right wing crazies and tea partiers, he keeps going on Fox News and making statements that he know simply aren't true. This time, he stated, twice, that President Obama grew up in Kenya and then, when called on it, gave the usual explanation that Republicans have given. It goes, "I didn't say that. Or, if I did say it, you didn't hear it correctly. Or, If you heard it correctly, I just misspoke."
Seems to me that it would be a bit dangerous for an ordained minister, such as Mike Huckabee, to lie deliberately. Looks as though he would try to tell the truth at least every now and then. I'm just sayin'.
