Ottawa Sun: Simpson defence draws laughter

Ah, O.J. If not for the September 11th tragedy, your road rage trial would be front page news. Instead, you're relegated to the back pages where you belong. We can only hope that you're found guilty, and you finally have to serve some prison time. Karma's a bitch, ain't it?

Survivor: Africa: Episode Two

For a minute there, I thought I was watching an episode of Buffy - what was with all that blood-drinking?

I would like to put forth a new strategy for prospective Survivor contestants: vote off the young, healthy stud males. Look how far Colby got in Survivor II. He used his physical prowess as currency for the others in his tribe to fight over, and once the tribes merged, he won nearly all the immunity challenges to make it to the end. If I were a Survivor contestant, guys like Colby have to be the first to go. Sure, what about tribe competition? Wouldn't that weaken your team? It might, but the really physical competitions are clustered near the beginning. By the third episode, the physical element drops off a bit, and that's when you toast Mr. Universe.

So, Silas, my man, in my world, you'd be out on your ass.

Suspicious Incident at Md. Subway

Long time, no post. Sorry. :) I don't have to tell you that the last few weeks have been strange and unsettling. Anyway...

The thing about wackos is that they generally need a trigger to go off. I suspect 9/11 is just that kind of trigger. Now we're hearing about anthrax in Boca Raton, an armed man with a mysterious jar on the Washington subway, and God knows what else. Are they cleverly orchestrated terrorist attacks or psychos with an excuse to go postal?
