George W. Bush: Nice Guy to Have a Beer With, Not So Good as President; AKA Who's Responsible for Military Contractors in Iraq?

Here's the thing.  He seems like a nice guy.  Hell, I'd go have a beer with him.  Watch the game.  That kind of thing.  But good lord he shouldn't be President of the United States.

U.S. Public High School Devoted to Homeland Security

Glasgow Airport Security Sign security control

Via BoingBoing comes this absurdity; A U.S. Publicly funded 'Magnet' High School devoted to Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness:

"In late August, Maryland's Joppatowne High School became the first school in the country dedicated to churning out would-be Jack Bauers. The 75 students in the Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness magnet program will study cybersecurity and geospatial intelligence, respond to mock terror attacks, and receive limited security clearances at the nearby Army chemical warfare lab.

The new school is funded and guided by a slew of federal, state, and local agencies, not to mention several defense firms. Officials say it will teach kids to understand the "new reality," though they hasten to add that the school isn't focused just on terrorism. School administrators, channeling Cheneyesque secrecy, refused to be interviewed for this story. But it's no secret that the program is seen as a model for the rest of the country, with the Pentagon and other agencies watching closely.

Students will choose one of three specialized tracks: information and communication technology, criminal justice and law enforcement, or "homeland security science." David Volrath, executive director of secondary education for Harford County Public Schools, says the school also hopes to offer "Arabic or some other nontraditional, Third World-type language."

The Littlest Pole Dancer; AKA Nashville Stripclub Action

pole dancing stripping crazy horse nashville tennessee

As Nashville's latest resident I'm eager to find out the goings on about town.  Hence my purchase of free newsagraph 'Nashville Scene'.  I've read it today with interest - and was pleased to see their endorsement of Mayoral Candidate, (now soon to be Mayor), Karl Dean.

Imagine my shock and surprise when, leafing through the back of this fine listing magazine looking for Phone Sex Ads, I came across the image above.

I don't know what to think Dear Listeners.  Of course being a 'little person' should be no barrier to working the pole, yet I can't help feel that 'Little Lacey' is exploited somehow.  Am I wrong?

(P.S. Before anybody emails me with the suggestion, yes I will try to get her on the show).

Diebold Rebrands

So Diebold is changing their name to, I shit you not, 'Premier Election Solutions'.

Why not just re-brand as 'Honest McTrusty's Dependa Vote' if they're gonna go to the effort of ordering new stationary?

Fox Show 1/2 Hour News Hour Fails For All The Obvious Reasons

Yes, it has been cancelled.  The 1/2 Hour News Hour previously on LTA:

The America Show

After watching the embedded clip above I find no reason to go into detail about why the show was asked to cease production.  I find the whole thing has a creepy fascist, anti-life, anti-art vibe; I mean who the fuck doesn't like art? 

If you don't then email me and I'll take you around some galleries no matter what city I'm in at the time to explain to you the transformative nature of personal creativity.

These people just hate and hate. But who specifically do they hate? And why?

Edinburgh Fringe Podcast Action! Part 7; Edinburgh Airport


People say to me:  "Oh, sure Jett, it's great to go to Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival, but is it worth going any other time?"

Yes, my friends - it is worth visiting off-season, if only so you can be greeted by these intensely scary advertisements at Edinburgh Airport's baggage reclaim

Via BoingBoing comes the news that Oklahoma is offering the above license plate for your vehicle of choice.

No comment is necessary.

Oh, except to say "Oklahoma - what the fuck is wrong with you?"
