Well, This is getting out of hand ! Thank God, world hunger is under control, the war in Iraq is finished and all the troops are home. All diseases have been cured and there's a solid steel, 36 foot high fence separating the United States from Mexico.
To bring you up to date: Paris Hilton was liberated yesterday and sent home wearing an ankle bracelet. L.A. city attorney, Delgado, was irate and filed documents late in the afternoon for a hearing. Judge Michael Sauer ordered a 9:00 PDT hearing to find out why the Sheriff violated his instructions and had sent Paris home..
This morning, Ms. Hilton's attorney showed up alone. Paris had been told she could appear via telphone. After the Sheriff and the Judge argued for 2 hours, the judge finally ordered a police cruiser to have Ms. Hilton picked up and brought to the courtroom.
The police then drove to Ms. Hilton's estate, handcuffed her and brought her to court. The judge ruled this afternoon that Ms. Hilton shall be returned to jail to serve the rest of her sentence. She reportedly became hysterical and had to be physically escorted from the courtroom.
This is becoming sad in the aspect that the too much time (especially the media) has been alloted to this case. There are too many important things happening in this world !
In the interim, We do not have a C.A.T. nominee as of the time of this entry (I still have hope), althought the Hilton case came dangerously close to nomination. The whole case and players, not just "Precious". (A) Al Sharpton, a legend in his own mind, is raving and ranting about the case, stating something about, "we be discriminated 'cause dey gots money and dats why she get out"(or something like that). I also still believe that the paparazzi should be shot on sight.
The Pictures: Mostly odds and ends... things that make me laugh.. things that make me happy.. and, the "usual suspects".

Odds and Ends: You think Paris Hilton's got problems? Witness the poor 21 year old man, who, while crossing in front of a semi trailer, got his electric wheelchair's handlebars stuck in the truck's grill (see Pictures). The driver, who didn't notice that the man was stuck and drove down the highway at speeds approaching 50 mph. A witness called 911 saying, "Y'all ain't gonna believe this, but..." Thankfully, the truck stopped and the man was unhurt. I did kinda laugh when I noticed someone snapped a picture before dislodging the man's wheelchair.
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Thanks Victor !

While attending a marriage seminar dealing with communication, Tom and his wife, Grace, listened to the instructor. He said, "It is necessary that husbands and wives know each other's likes and dislikes.
He addressed the husband, "Tom, Do you know your wife's favorite flower?" Tom leaned over, gently touched his wife's arm and asked, "It's Pilsbury, isn't it?"
