The Stranger is a local independent paper in Seattle. I love their liberal outlook on political subjects. The joys of being independent - you can say whatever the hell you want. Part of an article that came out yesterday:

George Bush has one more day, if that, before his administration’s response to Hurricane Katrina becomes a huge political disaster...Bush will visit New Orleans tomorrow, and if the scenes of anarchy in the city continue up to and through his visit, he is toast. He has one more day.

I don't know about all of you, but I'll be anxiously awaiting the reports of how that little visit went today. Anyone taking bets on whether or not Bush will be wearing a vest???

In other frightening news from The Stranger:

The week kicks off with news of the most fertile high school in America, straight outta Canton, Ohio. Today the Canton Repository reported the startling findings regarding the city's Timken High School, where of the 490 female students, 65 are with child. Further fright is supplied by the Canton Health Department, whose statistics reveal that of the 586 babies born this year at Canton hospitals, 104 were produced by girls between the ages of 11 and 19. "School officials are not sure they know what caused so many pregnancies," reports the Repository.

I honestly don't know which is worse, the situation, or the response by the school officials!

The school officials don't know what caused the pregnancies? LOL I wonder what is discussed in their sex ed classes?

If GW was smart he'd skip the vest and go with full body armour.
