News Review: Bloody Massacre, Heartbreak

I know I'm a little late to the game here, and everybody has been anxious to hear my take on this tragic news. Well, dear readers, unless you've been living in a cave on Mars for the past 48 hours, you must have already heard the news:

On a sad, sad day for our nation, we bid farewell to one of our most beloved sons. Legendary crooner Don Ho has passed on at the tender age of 76. There was a horrible bloody massacre on the inside of his heart.

According to police reports, the culprit is reportedly an Asian man.

Police have identified the culprit as a Mr. Sam Choy, owner of Sam Choy's Diamond Head Restaurant. It is reported that even though he knew Mr. Ho had a bad heart, Choy continued to serve up delicious, mouthwatering Polynesian fusion cuisine in a cruel, calculating, and innovative manner.

Beer in Texas: It's Getting Legaler and Legaler

Alcohol-free areas dry up in Texas

DALLAS (Reuters) - Texas is a dry place but when it comes to alcohol sales it is getting a lot wetter.

Like a growing number of "Bible Belt" communities in the South and Midwest, Texans are loosening their bans or restrictions on booze despite the local political clout of conservative Christians who frown on drinking.


Analysts say the "moistening" of Texas shows that the "Baptist battle against the bottle" has given way to other political priorities such as opposition to abortion and gay marriage -- issues which the Republican Party has deftly used to get its supporters to the ballot box. ...

Yay beer!
I'd like to give a special thanks to our friends in the gay community who helped make this possible.

And a high-five to our friends in the abortion community as well.

See what happens when we all work together?

Bloggers rail against imposing civility online

by Glenn Chapman Wed Apr 11, 4:32 AM ET

SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Outrage abounds in the "blogosphere" as a pair of Internet luminaries are lobbying for rules of behavior in the lawless world of online commentary.

Internet publisher Tim O'Reilly, credited with coining the phrase "Web 2.0," and
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales triggered torrents of vitriol by proposing a "Blogging Code of Conduct" to impose civility on the Internet.

The idea came in the wake of anonymous death threats posted on the blog of author and speaker Kathy Sierra, O'Reilly's friend.

"A culture is a set of shared agreements that allows us to live together," O'Reilly wrote in a blog posting calling for a code of conduct.

"Let's make sure that the culture we create with our blogs is one that we are proud of."

The release this week of a first draft of rules of behavior for online commentary is riling bloggers who accuse its authors of acting like new-age media overlords disregarding precious rights of free speech.

"It's simply unbelievable what's going on here," a blogger writing under the name "Marcus" said in a comment forum at O'Reilly's website.

"So-called 'community standards' are merely the latest example of the agents of normalcy and entrenchment subconsciously attempting to organize, dictate, tame and pacify."

Another blogger by the name of Freddy the Backdoor Love Affair was infuriated. He writes, "Get the fuck out the way, cause here they come. Them hoes shakin' that ass. Get yo ass to the floor and shake ya rump. Shake, shake, shake, shake. Bounce yo ass to the beat while you touch yo feet. Pop that thang and roll with it."

He then goes on to say, "What's happenin', what's up. Got Patrón in my cup. I pop, I drank. I'm on Patrón and purk, I can't thank. I'm blowed, to the do'. don't know how the hell I'm gettin home."

The proposed code calls for blog content to be deleted if it is abusive, threatening, libelous, false or violates promises of confidentiality or rights of privacy.

"We take responsibility for our own words and for comments we allow on our blog," the draft code states.

"We won't say anything online that we wouldn't say in person."

One of the core principles blablabla. boring.
