The Eagle and the Fox

No, it isn't an Aesop Fable (Google it, you teenage turds, if you don't know who Aesop is) but a struggle between 2 animals in the dead of Winter. These shots were taken by a hunter in Montana with a cell phone camera. I would love to get images like these with my good camera. SOunds like a manly weekend in the making.

I was going to try and craft something witty using these photos, like the differences in our two-party system  when it comes to sharing the wealth. The eagle (republican icon) provided for himself and then the fox (democrat icon) is trying to take the eagles hard earned kill to divey it up amongst the other opportunists, represented by the black birds, who are showing up for a free meal. But I won't.

2010 Olympic Fashion Show.. err. Games

Just inside one week after the Saints won Super Bowl XLIV (that's 44 if you didn't pass the 8th grade) the first Olympic Games of the new decade launched yesterday in Vancouver, Canada. Sorry, Chicago. Coincidentally, I had a short layover in O'Hare yesterday and all I could think about was how much different this airport would have looked had they not been bumped in the first round. I thought the same thing when I was in South Bend, Indiana and saw a meager little shelf in the airport gift shop dedicated to the Colts.

Although the Games were kicked off by the death of a luger from Georgia- the country, not the state- the procession, led by Greece, was a success for all the fashion police of the world who have just recovered from the Grammy's. From the sexually-ambiguous-figure-skater Johnny Wier's choice of faux fur with the imminent backlash from PETA (haha) to the dreadlock-wearing-Japanese-snowboarder-with-an-identity-crisis taking fashion lessons from K-Fed, the written coverage of the Games has been pretty lame.

The only thing that could possibly be worse than the fashion coverage is the prospect of the Canadians serving moose penis appetizer samples at the Games.

Cat predicts over 50 deaths

Finally, an animal story worth reading about. This thing has predicted at least 50 deaths, even one where the doctors got it wrong, and sits with the person during the last day or so.

Too bad it doesn't cause death as I have a few odd jobs for it.
