According to this morning's Star, the former Congressman is being treated for his alcoholism up at Sierra Tucson, the local treatment center which has seen plenty of celebrities waltz through its doors. One day at a time, Mark!

Blogging Update

Posted By on Wed, Oct 25, 2006 at 12:31 PM

Hey, kids. I will be out of the office for the remainder of the week, which means blogging from me will be sporadic, at best. Hopefully, the other bloggers will pick up the slack. If they don't, then their pay for blogging will be withheld. Of course, they don't get paid, but still, it's .... um ... the thought that counts?

Never mind.

TV Interview About Tucson's Missing Greyhounds

Posted By on Wed, Oct 25, 2006 at 11:34 AM

Yesterday Dan Marries from KOLD Channel 13 came over to my colorful house and interviewed me about Tucson Greyhound Park's missing 158 dogs. The AZ Department of Racing's top investigator told me that is how many were documented so I'll stick with that number for now.

For 20 minutes, I answered questions and perhaps got 15 seconds of air time. However, I'm not complaining. Rather, I'm ecstatic that the case of the missing greyhounds is not just being dusted under the rug.

Although I'd rather express myself by writing or talking on radio, this is the second time I have been on television talking about the missing greyhounds. So if you want to see the interview which includes my beautiful greyhounds and Rick Favreau's lame rhetoric as to not clearly remembering what he did with the dogs ... click here.  

CD8 Candidates on Sex Offenders

Posted By on Wed, Oct 25, 2006 at 9:29 AM

While I was not at this debate, I have to say that the exchange between Randy Graf and Gabrielle Giffords regarding sex offenders, as reported by Daniel Scarpinato, was pretty damn funny:

After Graf criticized Giffords in his opening statement as being soft on sex offenders, she shot back, referring to his former campaign manager, Steve Aiken. Graf fired Aiken in June after it surfaced that he had been convicted of having sex with a minor in the mid-'90s. Though initially the incident was viewed as a liability, Graf has received little public criticism over it during the campaign — until Tuesday.

"Explain that to the voters of Arizona," Giffords said of Aikens' employment with his campaign.

Graf didn't provide a direct explanation, but accused Giffords of "taking a cheap shot based on information you got off of a blog. Congratulations."

Randy, Randy, Randy ... face it: You hired a sex offender. You made a mistake; fess up to it, and move on. The fact that Aiken's little problem was first reported on a blog is moot; it was true.

Politicans sure can be a hoot, can't they? God bless 'em.

The Worst Opinion Page Does It Again

Posted By on Tue, Oct 24, 2006 at 11:46 AM

So on Sunday, the Arizona Daily Star editorial board went and endorsed Jon Kyl, even though the same idiot board has taken positions that are 180 degrees from Kyl's positions on gay marriage, Iraq, George W. Bush, immigration, etc., etc.

I am not opposed to a board endorsing Kyl. I am just stunned at the inconsistency shown by the Star's board.

The worst editorial page in America keeps getting worse. If it weren't for Dave Fitzsimmons, the page would be completely lacking a redeeming quality. And Tucson suffers for it.

Penis Fondue

If you're faint of heart or don't like the thought of eating animals (in this case, dogs or bulls or snakes), skip this message.

A sicko friend sent this to me, and on some level, I thought it was worth sharing, because it demonstrates the differences in cultural dining habits. Let's call it Noshing Around in Beijing

America in the News

I found this story out of the Miami Herald to be totally fascinating. Once again, America's making news—because of a sex scandal. Sigh.
