Apparently someone finally notified Strom Thurmond that he's been dead since the late 80's. I usually feel bad about mocking the recently deceased, but I don't think you count as "recently deceased" when you've been surviving off the flesh of the living. So long America's oldest senator, you're finally meeting up with your dad who FOUGHT IN THE CIVIL WAR! ...ahem, sorry about that outburst kids.
This just in, Australians are some scary bastards with too much time on their hands. Or, Grocer Brings About Global Destruction. Really, you can choose the headline you'd like to apply to the article.
In other news, speech shall be even less free than it was yesterday if some republican senators have their way (including Mr. John McCain, who people try to throw in my face as a sensible republican). I'm not a large fan of shock radio, but I believe that it's the job of the advertisers and the listeners to force a radio personality to change their act, not the job of the government. Let the people force a change rather than the government. Nothing good will come of this.
Did you hope that you'd have access to a functional Medicare system when you needed it? Too bad. Politicians act as though this is going to help the elderly, but I don't trust private companies to keep the interests of the elderly in mind.
Sorry it's such a bad news day children. Sometimes Uncle Sean just has to point out the more pressing issues in the news. I promise, next time I'll find something about a man losing his penis to a thresher accident and a dog saving an elderly woman
