Politics: Teh News Sucks

If you're reading the news today, you know that it seriously sucks hind end. We'll get around to our usual high-quality reportage and venomous snark after the doctor's appointment. In the meantime, some not-so-sucky-news:

Blogger hunter for justice announced recently that South Africa's President Mothlanthe has appointed an openly gay man to the nation's highest court.

Hunter notes parallels with other nations and that this is a historic first. Thanks, Hunter, so pleased to hear something positive!

Digg friend AMiller sends good news about Africa. According to PRI, wherefrom comes the article, a majority of those on the African continent are moving towards democracy, better economic situations and improved health. To think that that dreadful little wart, Bill Gates, is in large part responsible for this! I only wish the jerk made better software. Still. Give the devil his due. In a world as plagued as ours by random violence, widespread insanity, and acts of cruelty, every little bit of good news helps.

And finally, for those of you as really needs a picker-upper, here's something worth fighting about — broccoli!

At least Captain Pugwash, the adorable kitteh, seems to think so.

What's in that broccoli? Cat's don't fight over broccoli, this is just wrong on so many levels!

That kitteh is hysterical. My girls (my 2 kittehs) say it's wrong. Cats are only allowed to eat grass so they can puke green goo all over the sofa and new duvet cover.

Kittehs do not eat greens. That is a fact. It is a law of nature. Cats are carnivores. That is some kind of vegan Commie kitteh hybrid. It's unnatural and just wrong. I think the Bible says so too.

Captain Pugwash needs to meet Pinky, the lovable kitty currently starring at the top of my blog. Now *that* is what cats are supposed to behave like, heh!

Hi TPC, I know, yes, you are right. Slash, scratch, my face would be ripped to shredds! Not to mention my hands and arms too. :-)

Oh, my goodness!!! I've never seen such a thing in catdom. I can't even get my all-day snoozers over here to eat a piece of my freshly roasted chicken!!! The world is topsy turvey.
