polarblog.jpgIt was the type of week that brought us a little of this and a little of that – very little of it good. An assassination attempt in very tenuous Pakistan, more political muckraking in the race for 2008, Brownback drops out of race due to lack of funds and support, attacks on children who have benefited from the SCHIP program, a dreadful Democratic Congress who were unable to override Bush’s SCHIP veto and Stephen Colbert declaring that he will be running for President in his home state of South Carolina. So I decided to visit the Bronx Zoo (no, not the Yankees) where I always have a good time and am able to forget about the troubles of the day. We all had a blast and here are some of the fabulous faces we saw.

–  Check out the swinging orangutan and gibbon I saw at the Philadelphia Zoo a few weeks ago.

–  Just what exactly does the Christian right want? They should be careful what they wish for because this third party bullshit may come back to bite them in the ass.

–  Bill Maher got verbally attacked on his show Friday night by the group that thinks, among other things, that Building 7 was a controlled explosion.

– Check out this left brain vs. the right brain test

– Why is this man still not impeached?

–  Rudy comes out short in the straw poll by several thousand evangelicals. This is getting good.

–  Oh oh – first it was one of the Teletubbies, now it is Dumbledore!

–  Today, in 1959, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum of modern and contemporary art, designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, opened to the public in New York City. I still think it is a lousy museum to view art.

–  Frank Rich writes about the consequences of the corruption in the Iraq War in Suicide is Not Painless.

–  Maureen Dowd is back with Cougars, Archers and Snipers.

–  Thomas Friedman on why your vote matters when it comes to green.

The zoo is always a good antidote – especially from this week of ‘good’ news.
