A Quiet Sunday

Even our visitor numbers are down a little bit today (not quite 1,200 visitors so far). A couple of stories of interest - kind of a mini quick hits we guess:
  • Not quiet Down Under - a HUGE cyclone battering Australia. Local and International coverage. Cool satellite pictures if you can find them.
  • Quiet Saturday - The anti-war protests around the world were a bust. Sorry Lefty. Out of 6 billion people, all they were able to muster were a few tens of thousands. Chicago appears to have had one of the largest rallies that we can track. From GatewayPundit: Austria - 200 protestors; Berlin - 700; Greece - 600; Sweden - 1,000; Tokyo - 2,000; London - 15,000; Australia - 500. We're going to guess the anti-war, anti-democracy people have fallen out of favor as Chicago alone can draw a couple hundred thousand immigrant protestors but the world total against bringing freedom and democracy can't even crack the attendance figures at Bears game.
  • It's so quiet, even The Sopranos lost a quarter of it's viewing audience over last season. These totals don't take into consideration TIVO viewers and such, so maybe the drop off is less.
Overall, it seems very quiet - is it the calm before a storm? County indictments? Tuesday elections? Exempt movement? What does everyone else hear?

Speaking of the Sopranos, Edie Falco is one phenominal actress!

I'm constantly amazed by her abilities. She has taken Carmella to levels unseen in other television characters.

Yep. I'd hit it!!!

But I'm Pretty sure she's "pitching for the other team"....

I was thinking it would come down to a power struggle and it looks like that's where it's going! Sylvio should take it, but Christopher is a mad man. Pauly has already sold out to Johnny Sack, Vito is a pole smoker, and it sounds like Tony's son could be the dark horse waiting to take it all...except I hate that little fucker and I hope thats not the case!!!!


While we're on Soprano's, did anyone see that Robert DeNiro is going to pay the legal fees for that asshat Lilo Brancato ( Jackie Aprile, Jr. and "C" in A Bronx Tale), the actor/junkie who was involved in murdering an NYPD copper!!! WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!!?

Another hero crossed off my list! Suck my sack, DeNiro! How dare you?!?!?!?

Edie Falco was married to Edward J Olmos I think.

The reason the number of viewers has dropped is the nearly TWO YEAR wait inbetween seasons. I don't understand that. Great show regardless.

Concerning Stroger---

You've got to wonder WHY one in their late 70's is not retiring and enjoying the fruits of their labor.

Control of the old guard in our city or just a love of the job?????

Okay, dear M, using your logic with numbers let's compare the number of votes YOUR president received (51%) in the last election. This proves he is YOUR president and not the president of all the people.

"leftisthebest" and his politics are irritating enough. Why does he constantly refer to SCC as "my dear M"? He is but one of the jerks on this blog that deserves a serious "tune-up".

PET PEEVES: The posters that use the possessive "your" instead of "you're" (and vice versa), the contraction for "you are"

Those that don't realize the difference between "to" and "too" and God forbid, "two".

Most recently, the correct spelling is "douche", not "duesch".

A typo is only human. But there's no excuse for the stupidity displayed on this site ("cite" and "sight" have entirely different meanings)>

It make coppers appear to be downright stupid. Get a dictionary if you're such a miserable speller. Same for grammar, too.("too" = "also")

To the grammar Nazi:

From the Urban Dictionary:

Dueschbag -

the scientific name for schmucks who roll up in public wearing wife-beaters or oversized jeans. Can also be found wearing sunglasses in nightclubs and/or sun-visors on backwards and upside down. These people should be drug outside and shot in the stomach, then used as speed bumps to prevent any neon-toting lowrider crap-mobiles from infesting the neighborhood and lowering property values.

Or, low-life losers who have nothing better to do than nit pick every little fucking thing they possibly can, only to out themselves as utter and complete ass-hats!!! Get a different fucking hobby!!!!

You typed:

"A typo is only human. But there's no excuse for the stupidity displayed on this site ("cite" and "sight" have entirely different meanings)>"

Hmmmmmmm...... I usually end my sentences with periods. What the fuck does ">" mean???

If you're going to call on other peoples mistakes, you might not want to make the same fucking mistakes.

Idiot.

Great subject on the NYPD RANT. It's entitled "Blowjob or Steak?"

Today, March 20, is National Steak and Blowjob Day, ladies!

Need two of life's greatest joys be mutually exclusive? I think not.

I know that clown in the Oval Office sure ain't the president of those on the South and West sides, not withstanding the "yuppie" communities.

Get over it, loser Republicans, and let "lefty" voice his viewpoints. I suppose now, the racial taunts will fly against me. I don't really care, because then you are showing your true colors. A white sheet.

Look, I used "your" and "you're" in the same sentence and it was done correctly.

lefty, your argument is flawed for the fact that we do not live in a true democracy. This country is a presendential system republic that has representative democracy. Remember the electoral college? We as voters let our feelings be known about our choice for the highest office in the land. It is up to our elected officials to cast the vote. So in reality it really does not matter how the popular vote goes. Repeat after me: Dewey beats Truman, W beats Gore.

Why don't you just send your messages via e-mail to "dear M"?

While you're not a moron like a few that post on this board, your left-wing politics now puts us to sleep.

The only thing we have in common is that ALL POLITICIANS are assholes, regardless of party. The G.O.P. is just the lesser of two evils.

Go fuck yourself and shove that "Your President" dribble up your ass!

You don't like the prez, fine with me. Hate him all you want, bash him all you want, but too fucking bad, he's YOUR president too! Unless you're going to move to Canada.
