The bobbies are channeling Dirty Harry now; a suspected bomber jumped a turnstile and tried to get on a train. He was killed by plain-clothes police.
The Fox News coverage this morning mentioned that the British police had shoot-to-kill orders. My mind went to Star Trekkin's "We come in peace; shoot to kill, shoot to kill." What was worse was that Eileen got it out of her mouth before I did. Equally yoked or equally warped?
Speaking of Star Trekkin', here's a funny "Stone Trek" cartoon to go with the song. Check out the "dead redshirts" count; all too true. "Ramirez? Come, in Ramirez!" If Kirk, Spock and Ramirez are on an away team, you can start booking Ramirez's wake.
Piston reporters will have to be careful, for their very likely to get a Flip response to any question. The rumor mill proved correct on this one, for the Pistons wasted little time in signing former Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders after parting ways with Larry Brown.
Yes, the Pistons don't have Kevin Garnett. However, KG has gotten the T-Wolves to how many NBA finals? About as many times as Bowling Green's been in the Rose Bowl.
Give Saunders a slightly better bench and the Pistons will be back in the hunt again in 2006.
No wonder the Chinese floated the yuan; they didn't want to mess with the Maestro when he's a bad mood. The Sudanese were roughing up his woman.
