Flight 93 Memorial: Redesigned?

Major news sources are reporting that the Flight 93 Memorial has been redesigned to not include a giant red crescent. The official site is here, although at the time of this posting it appears to have technical problems.

This should be huge improvement over the disasterous previous design.

Heard on NPR

"Hey Nevermore, what ever happened to your blogs about NRP's bias? Have you given up?" - Anonymous Emailer

In a way, yes. I found the bias to be so prevelent that there was point in naming each instance. You can read a few mentions of NRP's bias here, and here, and here, and here. Our local NPR station had nice moment this morning (paraphrased):

Caller: "... I mean, just look at all of Saddam's weapons prior to our invasion. It was all American, all of it."
Host: "Caller, you make a good point."

In fact, nearly all of the Saddam-era Iraqii military equipment, from its T-72 tanks to its AK-47s, were Soviet.

NRP's hosts do seem to make an effort to air both sides of any issue, but when politics are involved, they seem to strain to show the viewpoint that they personally disagree with, despite their best efforts.

CNN X's Cheney Off Their List

CNN flashed an X over Dick Cheney's face hitman-style on live TV yesterday, then apologized today.

Despite all the conspiracy theories put forth in the blogosphere, of course this was a mistake. Even the Clinton News Network would find a way to be more subtle than this.

Still... you know how sometimes people say something accidently that is truely rooted in their subconscious?

Mother-in-Law to Son-in-Law: "Well, I suppose I should get going before the rain starts... I don't want to drive off a bridge."

Son-in-Law: "Yes, you absolutely should. Err... not drive off a bridge, I mean, but get going. Um, not that I'm hurrying you out, of course! Just the thing about the bridge, we should don't want to see that..."

Could CNN's production staff have a subconcious that oozed onto the screen? After all, we didn't see an X over Hillary's face.

UPDATE: Well, then there is the small matter of a CNN employee caught on tape admitting that CNN was using it's right to free speech when it placed an X over Cheney's face, telling the rather strident and annoying caller to "tell the president you voted for to tell the truth." Find the link here.

"We were, ummm... crying! Yeah, that's it!"

Those whacky ex-Topcat cheerleaders are still trying to set the record straight. At first, there was no denial of the infamous bathroom stall lesbian encounter. Then, one of the cheerleaders denied the sex, and there was speculation that her brunette friend was getting sick in the toilet. Now, the story is that the brunette was crying, and the blonde was there to comfort her.

Let me just say this: I've been around girls who are throwing up, and I've been around girls who are crying, and neither time did it sound *anything* like the moaning of sex. Note to blonde cheerleader: if your partner sounds like she's crying or throwing up when you're doing it, then you aren't doing it right.

It's simple: Ban Piglet.

Maybe T.O. Is Better Off Without an Agent

Because the hothead he has now, Drew Rosenhaus, is probably costing him hundreds of thousands of dollars. We've all heard about the bombasic comments he made to the press; now you can check out the video:

What do you get when you have a news story that combines pro cheerleaders, a drunken arrest, and lesbian sex in a bathroom stall? The perfect motivation for me to get blogging again.

It's true. Two Carolina Panther cheerleaders, Angela Keathley and Renee Thomas, decided that the dance floor in Tampa didn't provide them environment they needed to explore each other properly, so they scampered off to the bathroom stall for a lengthy munching session. So lengthly, in fact, that another woman grew impatient waiting to use the bathroom and started asking them to vacate the stall. So one of these delightful lawn-mowing ladies opened the door and punched her out. Needless to say, the horny TopCats were arrested.

But that's not the end of the story. The lesbo TopCat that threw the punches then gave police the name of a different TopCat cheerleader, presumably to avoid getting caught. Read about it here.

OK, these two are screwed as NFL cheerleaders. However, if they are smart, they will put up a web site for all the new fans of lesbian -- or at least bi-curious -- cheerleaders, and they might catch on in pop culture.

If not, there's always Arena Football.
