Only one thing CAN be said. :


The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones.

Society is breaking down... It's the only conclusion I can draw.

On my writing desk sits a coaster that reads "While there is tea there is hope."

The Tea Boy (you'll recall him from one of the books?) cringes at this report:

MOSCOW (AP) - The Russian reported by British media to be a suspect in the radiation poisoning murder of a former Russian agent in London hit out Saturday at "lies, provocation and government propaganda."

Sky News reported Friday that British prosecutors believe they have enough evidence to charge Lugovoi.

Investigators have identified a teapot believed to have contained radioactive tea that eventually killed Litvinenko in November, Sky News said, citing unnamed Scotland Yard officials. An American news source had a similar report, citing an unidentified official.

The American news source said the teapot, found at the Millennium Hotel, remained in use for several weeks after the poisoning, adding that its radiation readings were extremely high.

Of the 13 people who tested positive for contamination with Polonium-210 since Litvinenko was poisoned, eight worked at the hotel. Two others who tested positive for the rare radioactive material also visited the hotel's bar.

...And along with our radioactive tea we can soon enjoy caffeinated doughnuts:

It starts out like a joke:

Now I know what they mean by the expression "There's one born every minute."

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) - Attempts to duplicate a movie stunt landed one man in the hospital with burned genitals and another facing criminal charges.

The men were trying to do a stunt from one of the "Jackass" movies, in which a character lights his genitals on fire. Jared Anderson, 20, suffered serious burns to his hands and genitals, according to the criminal complaint.

Randell Peterson, 43, who sprayed lighter fluid on Anderson and lit him on fire, was charged with felony battery and first-degree reckless endangerment Tuesday in Eau Claire County Court.

Witnesses told police that Anderson, who was drunk, volunteered to do the stunt Sunday after watching the movie, the complaint said.

After Peterson ignited Anderson, he ran into the bathroom, jumped into the tub and put the flames out, according to the complaint. He was taken to hospital and treated for second-degree burns.

Anderson told police that he didn't want anyone to get in trouble because of the stunt.

Peterson was freed on a US$2,000 bond. He has a hearing scheduled April 16. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.

There will probably never be a better opportunity for a Jerry Lee Lewis reference than this.
