tongueblog.jpgAnother week of news and news makers goes by. The Obama – Clinton marathon continues with calls for party unity and name calling. Obama’s Wyoming win yesterday gets him another 7 delegates as to Hillary’s five.  Bush vetoes another bill so that the CIA does not have its hands tied in their continued torturous road to the Hague. We are nearing the five year anniversary of our troops invasion of the debacle we now call Iraq. It seems to me that the only legislation Congress has passed is the Bill to turn the clocks forward earlier in the spring (did you do it last night?) and backin the fall. What an accomplishment. So, with stories aplenty, it is a little of this ‘n that today.

Want a fascinating website to lose yourself in for many hours? With the click of your mouse you can find out all types of interesting things about your elected officials and money. The Center for Responsive Politics is a non-partisan, non-profit research group based in Washington, D.C. that tracks money in politics, and its effect on elections and public policy. Follow the money!

– Check out my photo montages of the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux City, South Dakota and the Oakland Zoo in Oakland, California.

– John McCain has no new ideas. Period.

– What is the story with professional atheletes and cruelty to animals? Do these guys feel the law does not apply to them? There seems to be a disproportionate number of athletes who have had run-ins with the law because of their despicable cruelty to animals. Michael Vicks is now serving time in jail for his dog fighting involvement. 22 of his dogs have gone to Best Friends Animal Society and you can follow their stories here.

– New York Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce has been accused of neglecting one of his dogs by the Middlesex County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

– Pro golfer Tripp Isenhour said it was a “one-in-a-million” golf shot that killed a protected hawk and that he was only trying to scare the bird he now faces criminal charges for killing. If you are upset by this golfer’s behavior you can contact the PGA here.

– Check out Tyson, the skateboarding bulldog.

– My new favorite website is stumbleupon. Check it out and have fun.

– Elephants are beautiful animals. They are smart, social and long lived. Watch this elephant paint portraits of other elephants. Try to ignore the circus like tricks that some of the other elephants in this group have to go thru in order to ‘entertain’ the visitors.

– Always leave ’em smiling:
