Better late than never...

Yea yea, so I'm extremely late and will probably be short. Wanna fight about it? (c) Patty Tanager, the Caddy Manager.

Rest in Peace to those 9 who lost their lives yesterday in the fatal and deadliest Wash DC Metro accident EVER ( in all 33 years). This hit home hard for me and a few of my ATF/Cov cohorts as we all attended Howard University starting in 2001 and we super avid Metro riders. I use to take the Red line almost everyday from 04-07 since I lived literally across the street from the Fort Totten metro. I can't tell you how many times the Red line disappointed with super delays between the Tacoma Park and Brooklyn-CUA stations. I'm hoping that this tragedy will not be overlooked and that a complete overhaul of the DC metro system is already in the works. The rear train didn't even have dash board video yet and needed brake work! What type of peanut butter & jelly bullshit is that?!!?! Mayor Fenty better tell them dudes, get they shit together cuz for real, I can tell you there are PLENTY of metro trains still running right now on the Green, Yellow and Blue lines that need to be taken out of service (the Orange line always got the new hot shit)...

Iran is STILL falling apart more than a week later and with good reason. Today, Iran's ruling clerical regime put an end to any doubt by ruling out any annulment of the election and putting forth a date on which President Ahmadinejad will be re-sworn in as Pres for a second term. The streets were quiet today as the Iranian rule started cracking down hardcore (even going far enough to say "We will make examples of those who were picked up") and people start caring about their freedom and safety. After the terrible sniping death of Neda that was caught on a cell phone camera (no links here, respect the dead), some are definitely staying indoors and I don't blame them. Like I said last week, I wish there was an easy answer to this but unfortunately, I don't see this ending anytime soon.

Your favorite dictator's favorite dictator Kim Jong Il has hinted that North Korea will be testing missiles between June 25th and July 10th. This dude is so wild, we really have no reason to doubt that. The rumor is NK will test launch a missile towards Hawaii on July 4th! Hopefully Hawaii can complete their secret genetic experiments to create those Ring of Fire volcano monsters to protect the islands and eat those missiles.
