Columbia, S.C. (AP) - The highest-ranking black congressman said Thursday that opposition to the federal stimulus package by southern GOP governors is "a slap in the face of African-Americans." U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., said he was insulted when the governors of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and his home state, which have large black populations, said they might not accept some of the money from the $787 billion stimulus package.

.....I return to the Andrew Koenig question: What is the difference between Jesus and Barack Obama? One was a carpenter and the other couldn’t put a Cabinet together.

Theo Spark: Tax Increases and the Deficit........
California wants to start taxing marijuana sales, Oregon wants to increase the tax on beer, while New York wants to tax Internet porn. You know what this means? By the end of spring break, this whole thing could be paid for.

Perhaps you haven’t really noticed yet, but fashion-forward men, like my new trinity of adoration — Bryan Boy, Yu Masui and Jean-Paul Paula — have been feminizing their ensembles and pushing past females in the next-level department. And I, for one, am rapt. The look, to be clear, is not at all about cross-dressing. It’s men dressing mostly like men but with accessories and the odd Prada lace halter from the women’s department. It’s so genius that it makes you wonder why every guy doesn’t do this. It also makes me think I am getting sartorially lazy; it’s time to step up the game. Believe me, to see Yu Masui in tattered khakis and an old white tee beneath a Jil Sander spring/summer ‘08 sheer color-block dress is to know that you are really not thinking outside the box.

CHICAGO, Illinois CNN -- It may seem obvious that men perceive women in sexy bathing suits as objects, but now there's science to back it up. New research shows that, in men, the brain areas associated with handling tools and the intention to perform actions light up when viewing images of women in bikinis.

I'm a Porsche 911!

You have a classic style, but you're up-to-date with the latest technology. You're ambitious, competitive, and you love to win. Performance, precision, and prestige - you're one of the elite,and you know it.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Man, you can sure tell I'm out of the loop lately. Between the new job and the kitchen deconstruction, the multiple essays due for class and the need to actually sleep and do laundry, the complete disgust with our elected officials snout-in-the-trough antics and my disinclination to even read/watch/hear the news about that, I've been sorely neglecting the poor old blog. That must change. Gotta post at LEAST once a month, right?
