They say that hard work never killed anyone, but I'd rather not take a chance.

Incredible! I had to push them to send me my absentee ballot but Riverside County lost no time in sending me a Jury Duty summons...

On a completely different note, here's something that's mildly amusing:

The Real Hussein II

A Flash video parody of Saddam Hussein to the tune of Eminem's "Without Me."

It hangs together relatively well with one major caveat. His statement that he "never even made a WMD" is false in that he used relatively simple (although extremely nasty) chemical weapons in the Anfal campaign, particularly on the village of Halabja in 1988. All the data I've seen shows that any WMD stockpiles or capabilities were destroyed or nonexistent at least from the end of the first Gulf War.
As the dog of complacency cocks its leg at the electrified fence of fate....

How's that for a transition?
