corduroy licorice's mom made him a corduroy licorice-shaped cake for his birthday. he gulped down two pieces and started a third, but stopped when he felt full of himself.

three excerpts from the brilliantly edited harper's magazine weekly e-mail news report (sign up for it! you'll be glad you did. you'll laugh. you'll cringe.):

"a british parliamentary report concluded that the blair government did not intentionally lie in its controversial dossier on iraq's military threat; the report did criticize the government, however, and said that its false claim that iraq was capable of launching weapons of mass destruction in 45 minutes was 'unhelpful'..."

"a new poll found that 70 percent of americans believe, contrary to all evidence, that saddam hussein was involved in the september 11 attacks."

"britney spears, a pop star, declared her faith in president bush: 'honestly,' she said, 'i think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes and we should just support that.'"

wanna bet she's in the 70%?

not so innocent, but plenty ignorant.
