A Day's Miscellany

Right at this very moment, the President is giving his annual State of the Union address. I could tell you about it, but just hearing his voice kind of makes my ears glaze over, and anyway, you've heard it four times before, so what the hell.

Anyway, more important things are happening: Italy's Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi has announced that he will abstain from sex until his country's election on April 9. Bravo, bravissimo, signore! What a brave, brave man our ally in the War on Terror is. From what I've heard about the guy, he should consider giving up sex forever, so as not to add more little Berlusconis (Berlusconii?) to the earth's already overburdened population.

On a more serious note, Coretta Scott King, wife of Dr. Martin Luther King, has died. Let's hope that the spirit she embodied will be defended in the years to come, and inspire a new generation of people who believe in her vision.
