"No single step would go further to dramatize the GOP's commitment to rebuilding New Orleans than announcing now that the party's 2008 convention will be held in the recovering city. Such a move would signal the party's confidence in the Big Easy's renewal, and put it at the forefront of what should be similar commitments from private actors to do their part to help New Orleans come back."
Now considering, Hurricane Gustav heading for the Louisiana coast and the "Focus on the Family" video requesting that Christians pray for it to rain during Senator Obama's acceptance speech in Denver, it would have made for an interesting week if the GOP had taken that advice.
Hoping everybody on the Gulf Coast gets through this one OK.

The most recent estimate that I've found is from a Population Reference Bureau article which placed the number of people that have been born from 50,000 BC to mid-2002 at 106,456,367,669
Taking estimated birth rates for 2003-2008 and starting with the estimated mid-2002 population (6,215,000,000) and population estimates for each year to mid-2008, I calculated that approximately 776 million people have been born since the 2002 estimate - putting the total number of humans born at over 107 billion. Based on the current estimate for world population (6,677,564,000 for July 2008), this would means that about 6.2 % of all humans who have ever lived, are alive today.

The "Evil in every way imaginable" Mr. Burns
The clueless "PHB"
Or "Mr. Scorpio". The perfect boss at the perfect company - except for that small problem with the government.

Of the 325 that were built, only four have survived intact.
At the Historic Aerials website, you can find images of the aircraft "boneyard" at Davis-Monthan AFB in 1958. By my count, there are 160 B-36 aircraft that are awaiting scrapping or are in the process of being cut up. There are 24 more south of this image link below, and two more on the north side of the base.

John McCain is certainly not the only person who may be lying about not voting for Bush, but he would probably be the only person who is lying about AND claiming to have voted FOR him.
Meanwhile, I can't help posting this "Separated at birth" image of Colonel Saul Tigh from Battlestar Galactica.

That ending was altered in the 1955 animated version, which removed the humans, leaving only the nasty pigs. Another example of Hollywood butchering great literature? Yes, but in this case the film's secret producer was the Central Intelligence Agency.
Later, the CIA bought the rights to Animal House, thinking that it was going to be a remake of Animal Farm. The project was abandoned and sold off soon after they found out it had nothing to do with Orwell's novel, but not before they tinkered with some possible rewrites. In the CIA version, the Omega House triumphs over the Deltas , saves Dean Wormer and the Faber College Homecoming Parade.
Dean Wormer with future White House aide and CIA Director, Gregg Marmalar.

"In the hallway at the vet school is an *old* electron microscope. I didn't know how old untill I had a conversation with Dr. C, who rescued it from being sent to the landfill at his old university, and had it brought here..." (thanks to Eve)
Next time I'm at the dump, I hope I can find an "Interocitor".
Replacement parts may be hard to find though.
