Not much other news that I can tell right now.
Here's something I think is really funny (forgive me if you've seen it before - I published on my joke blog a year ago):
We have women in the military, but they don't put us in the front lines. They don't know if we can fight, if we can kill. I think we can. All the general has to do is walk over to the women and say, "You see the enemy over there? They say you look fat in those uniforms." -- Elayne Boosler
That just makes me laugh.
