corduroy licorice attended the grand opening of his friend stewart's brand new business. it was nice to walk in and see stew in his own juices shop, running the blenders and serving up smoothies.

from this week's harper's magazine e-mail:

"the bush administration rejected calls for an independent counsel in the matter of valerie plame, whose identity as an undercover cia operative was revealed by at least one senior white house official, possibly karl rove, in retribution for her husband's skeptical remarks about the president's case against iraq. rove, the president's political adviser, denied being the source of the leak, though he was reportedly fired from george h.w. bush's 1992 reelection campaign for leaking damaging information about a rival to bob novak, the very columnist who exposed plame in july. plame and rove, it was reported, attend the same episcopal church."

"schwarzenegger was also trying to explain comments he made years ago about his admiration for adolf hitler: 'i admired hitler for instance because he came from being a little man with almost no formal education, up to power. and i admire him for being such a good public speaker and for his way of getting to the people and so on.'"

"a russian electricity company was threatening to kidnap people's pets as a way to force delinquent customers to pay their bills."

"a new study estimated that 160,000 people die as a result of global warming every year; president vladimir putin suggested that global warming could be good for russians because they 'would spend less money on fur coats and other warm things.'"

movie review:

school of rock is formula movie fun showing off jack black's comedy chops and love of the rock. as an added bonus the school kids are actually musicians. nice touch. rock on.
