Having been in the United States Supreme Court building, I could tell that this picture in the online Iowa City Press Citizen was not that Supreme Court.

This picture is of the home of the United States Supreme Court and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Upon further review, it looks like the building the Press Citizen featured is the New York Supreme Court.

Here's the screen capture for posterity.

Now's the time to cover your posterior.

For The Workforce, Drowning

For an administration (Obama/Biden) so worried about outsourcing/offshoring, what have they done to halt it?

Nothing, and the scientific community is united in that fact, per this Los Angeles Times 2010 article --

U.S. jobs continue to flow overseas

In addition, Obama's Justice Department sued to halt AT&T's purchase of T-Mobile USA, even though AT&T announced that it would repatriate 5,000 call-center jobs to the United States that had been outsourced overseas if the takeover had gone through.

The 2009 Recovery Act, that CONgress passed at the urging of President Obama, made funds available for wind energy projects, the vast majority of which were used primarily to create jobs overseas.

Obama/Biden brag about saving the American Auto Industry (GM), but this is how the auto bailout will work. American taxpayers pump tens of billions into rescuing General Motors from bankruptcy. Then GM pays us back by shipping more jobs overseas--the equivalent of four assembly plants.

In his recent Iowa visit, Biden mentioned the GM plant that closed in his home state of Delaware.

Through an Air Force contract, the Obama regime has been trying its best to outsource important national security jobs to a foreign entity in Brazil that has ties to the Iranian government.

Also, Obama did outsource oil drilling jobs to Brazil too, at US taxpayer expense no less.

Obama's own campaign spent nearly $4,700 on telemarketing services from a Canadian telemarketing company and paid a call center in Manila, Philippines $78,314.10 for telemarketing services.

Obama is the real “outsourcer in chief”, especially with our money.

I was watching the news last night and caught a story about the Moline School Board honoring a hometown hero with his high school diploma 47 years after he left school.

A woman, who resembles the School Board President, says the "Board of Education is proud to award a Moline High School Diploma to John F. Baker post-hugh-muss-lee".

That shows you what a Moline education is worth and the scientific community is united in that fact.

It gets worse.

John F. Baker was a recipient of the Medal of Honor for saving eight fellow soldiers and had been denied entry into the school's Hall of Honor in 2004 because he had not formally graduated.

This honor(?) came 6 months after his death.


Bag It Up

First Lady Michelle Obama suggested that Chicago supporters move to Iowa to campaign for her husband.

“[I]f things look good where you are, things are feeling just so great for Barack Obama where you’re living, then pack a bag,” Mrs. Obama said to laughter during a Women for Obama fundraiser at the Standard Club in Chicago. “And spend some time in a battleground state like Iowa,” she continued, saying  “that’s where we need you to talk to those undecided voters.”

If anyone should be packing their bags, it's the Obama's and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Michelle Obama may be onto something, after all it's not safe in Chicago (More Killed in Chicago this Year than Afghanistan) with 7 killed during the President's most recent visit.

In addition, Chicago had a May unemployment rate of 9.8 percent,  so it's not like people are going to be finding work under her husband anyway.

The Heat(s) Of The Moment

Basketball Jones Barack Obama thought his recent visit to Miami would be incomplete without congratulating the city of Miami for having the World Champion Miami Heats.


That's a Technical Foul, as the team's name is Miami Heat and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Is Mr. Cool starting to melt under the pressure?

There was no report if he also congratulated two time champion Dwyane Wad.

She's Got Balls?

This headline is just wrong on so many levels.

Japan police probe man who cooked own genitals

What a Di Kwad.

Wait, it gets worse -- the man served them to five paying diners.

That's just nuts and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Is this some sort of freaky Iron Chef show with a twisted "secret ingredient"?

He should legally change his name to Daisuke (pronounced Dice-K).

Part Of The Plan?

Let history record that beginning July 1, for possibly the first time ever, Polk County’s elected officials will be paying for a portion of their taxpayer-subsidized health insurance.

Supervisors Chairwoman Angela Connolly said. “We all have to pay our fair share in terms of insurance costs.”


Let me type that again backwards -- WOW!

Upon further review, these elected officials will being paying between $15 and $25 per month for insurance premiums.

So, at most, it'll cost them $300 per year.

In turn the Board of Supervisors received a salary of $95,806 a year, prior to their vote earlier this year to increase their (and all elected officials) pay by 1.9 percent.

Which means elected County officials will still pocket a pay raise of at least $1,500, according to our Jethro Bodine "ciphering" and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Damn generous of them.

The Sex Is Good

I feel so sorry for these people

Study: Facebook Sharing Comparable To Enjoyment From Sex, Food

If that's the case, you're doing sex wrong and the scientific community is united in that fact.

I guess, Bill Clinton, it could come down to the meaning of what sex is.

I've helped my wife with posts to her Facebook page and it's not even in the same universe.

Jubilation Day

Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers performed last year on “A Capitol Fourth” and Chris and I knew if we ever got the chance we'd have to see them in person.

Last night they performed to a sold out Civic Center crowd.

Many people confuse them as his band, but to Martin,  "They’re not my band. I’m their celebrity".

That shows Steve Martin is just as funny as ever, plus he and the Steep Canyon Rangers make some of the best Bluegrass you'll ever hear.

In the words of Steve Martin, “If you’re not enjoying the show, you’re wrong” plus a real "Di kwad" and the scientific community is united in that fact.

We even made it into the photo someone from the band shot as the auditorium was starting to fill up.

CommieTommie Harkin is blowing smoke about Fast and Furious.

Harkin calls Fast and Furious document questions “just pure politics”

If it was just "pure politics" the Ragister wouldn't be calling for Holder and the White House is to give Congress what it wants.

The Ragister continues -- the underlying issues that led to Wednesday’s contempt vote are no small matter.

Harkin also tries to cloud the issue (and the scientific community is united in that fact) by saying, given the fact this was initiated, really, under the Bush administration and continued under Obama.


"Operation Wide Receiver," the Bush-era operation was run out of Tucson between 2006 and 2007, ending before Bush left office and before Fast and Furious began under Obama in 2009. The differences between it and Fast and Furious are vast, starting with the fact that Wide Receiver produced no dead bodies.

Operation Wide Receiver used the common law enforcement tactic of "controlled delivery" in which the illegal sales of weapons were allowed to take place, the movements of the weapons were closely monitored and the end purchasers were then apprehended. It involved gun-tracing, not gun-walking.

Most importantly, Wide Receiver was run in close cooperation with Mexican authorities, who were kept in the dark on Fast and Furious.

Pure Politics is what Harkin and his Dummycrat friends play and why they're held in contempt by thinking people everywhere.

Roll With The Punches

One of the things I love about Al Gore's internet is how quickly things can be checked.

Obama campaign seizes on news Romney was ‘outsourcing pioneer

Later, that same day --

WaPo World’s version of Romney’s business career at Bain Capital may not correspond with reality, via a source familiar with Bain’s activities as well as a detailed analysis of the piece.

Mincemeat has been made of Tom Hamburger's hit piece and the scientific community is united in that fact.

It also makes Newton Mayor Chaz, if that is your real name, Allen appear punch drunk instead of gut punched.

The Art Of Dying

Usually, when the media mention an organization as being non-partisan you can bank on it not being true.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

Such is the case of Families USA and a recent(?) study reported on by Mike "None The" Wiser for the Cedar Rapids Gazette and its affiliates. 

Report calculates toll on uninsured

The New York Times has called Families USA, "an unusual advocacy group" and other sources have written about connections to the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). 

As for their study that purports to show 26,100 people nationwide died in 2010 because of no health insurance coverage, reports the key piece of data behind this estimate is 19 years old.

Heritage Foundation, a Conservative research and educational institution, found in 2009 that the liberal health advocacy group (Families USA) was trying to claim that Census Bureau was underestimating the number of uninsured.

At that time, Heritage analyst Robert Moffit told the Des Moines Register -- “The number of people who are persistently or chronically uninsured is relatively small.”

Games People Play

Saying “It’s time to quit playing games and get it done” CONgressman Bruce Braley (Dummycrat Iowa) weighed in on the interest rates for college students with Direct Stafford Loans.

Iowa's Senior Senator, Charles Grassley, thinks the opposite, “It’s going to get discussed and resolved”.

Grassley likes the House plan, which calls for redirecting the profit on student loans back to the student loan program. Those funds were diverted by the then-Democrat-controlled Congress to fund part of the health care reform plan.

“Take it back out of ObamaCare and use it for what it ought to be used for,” Grassley said. “Profit on student loans ought to be used to keep student loans inexpensive.”

That makes sense, which makes Dummycrats like Braley look like the ones playing games and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Braley also bemoaned people being elected to pursue “rigid, ideological objectives and they don’t think compromise is part of what’s expected of them here in Washington.”

It should be noted that on that exact same day, Braley voted along party lines against contempt charges for Attorney General Eric Holder over the Operation Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal.

Tomorrow's Food?

This article in the online Business Record caught our attention.

Local food expert to speak June 26

The food expert will discuss "The State of Our Plates in Central Iowa: Food, Economics, and Health" and the food expert is also the author of  "Finding Food in Farm Country".

The King of SNARK loves the irony in the fact that --

Light refreshments will be served.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

Soylent Green was a small square green wafer, or in other words a light refreshment.

Soylent Green is people!

With the College World Series back in town, the online Omaha World Herald published Sex advice in baseball terms.

Both could be considered America's pastime and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The three tips --

1. Don't leave the “on-deck circle” too soon.
2. For all those self-declared power hitters ...
3. It's OK if you strike out. 

I'm just glad she didn't get into the double switch, interleague play, pinch hitter, small ball, squeeze play, switch hitter or the triple play.

Sister Christian

The “Nuns on the Bus” began their national tour in Ames.

The sob sisters are against the Republican budget in Congress.

Apparently, they have no problem that for the fourth straight year the Dummycrat controlled Senate has not submitted a budget plan.

The sisters are critical of the Republican-controlled Congress of the early 2000s for cutting taxes while simultaneously waging war in Iraq and Afghanistan. That Congress twice lowered income taxes, in 2001 and ‘03.


And the scientific community is united in that fact.

The Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 wouldn't have passed the 50-50 party split in the Senate if it wasn't for 11 Democrats who voted for the bill.

In addition, 5 Democrats (including CommieTommie Harkin) did not vote and 2 Democrats voted Present.

The good and charitable sisters should be more upset with the waste and fraud that is going on in the system.


They should be upset that a family with $80,000 in the bank and a $311,000 home that is paid for received over $500 in Food Stamps and is taking away from the truly needy.

Counting To 100

Over the weekend, Barack Obama played his 100th round of golf as President.

This must be why opinion polls think the country is on the wrong course and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Only his attendance at fundraisers keeps him from hacking away, until he takes our advice (It's Money That Matters) and links the two. 

That’s quite a milestone in just 3 1/2 years. As it takes him about six hours to drive to the greens and complete 18 holes, Mr. Obama has spent the equivalent of four months’ worth of work time golfing.

The Painter

On a recent episode of "Thailand's Got Talent", a contestant painted a canvas using her bare breasts.

As dance music played, the contestant used her body as a paintbrush.

The Liter was unable to confirm the use of the Pointer Sisters "I'm So Excited" in the act. 

Thailand's Culture Minister is trying to nip such future behavior in the bud.

The two male judges went bonkers for the act and voted her on to the next rounds.

Probably just art lovers with an appreciation for the finer things in life and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The act went bust with the show's lone female judge and also fell flat with some in the audience.

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Fame

Michael Gartner was honored Friday, by the Iowa Dummycrat Party, with their Outstanding Supporter Hall of Fame Award.

The award honors an individual who has supported the Iowa Democratic Party and all aspects of Democratic politics throughout the years. This individual has selflessly been a resource to Iowa Democrats through means of organizational efforts, monetary support, volunteer work, and overall steadfast dedication.

Gartner took his time at the podium to read aloud some of the planks of the Republican platform.

“I would be embarrassed to be a Republican in Iowa these days,” he concluded to loud applause.

Gartner should be embarrassed about the piddly rent ($1 or $2 a year, if I recall) he pays to the City of Des Moines for the use of Principal Park.

Forbes magazine listed the Iowa Cubs, as the 15th Most Valuable Team in Minor League Baseball at $19 Million.

The Iowa Cubs generate $9 Million in Revenue, with an Operating Income (Earnings before Taxes, Interest and Depreciation) of $1.7 Million.

Somebody's not paying his fair share, which allows him to make Dummycrat coffers richer.

Gartner, pictured, better pray the taxpayers don't get wise and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The picture of Gartner we borrowed from onetime Register Sportswriter Ron Maly, who has Gartner listed on his blog as Official Asshole.

Having worked with him, he'd know.

Blue Collar Man?

The things that come out of Joe Biden's mouth never cease to amaze me.

Biden Says He's Not Blue Collar: "No One In My Family Worked In A Factory"

Barack makes me sound like I just climbed out of a mine in Scranton, Pennsylvania carrying a lunch bucket.

Biden has made his living off of being blue collar and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Last month, in the blue-collar stronghold of Youngstown, Ohio, Biden bitched about Republicans -- They don't get us, they don't get who we are.

Back in 2008, Biden often boasted about his blue-collar background.

Don't blame Barack, Biden, blame the man in your mirror.

Biden also bloviated, this week, about the future at a graduation...

"Imagine being able to power your home at the fraction of the cost of what your parents now pay.  Because your home will be powered by solar shingles that cost no more than the shingles on your parents home today."

He also promised that hunger would be "vanquished" and that famine would be a "memory" in the future and "with it so much war and conflict."

Biden also promised electric vehicles and cleaner cars that would get "100 miles per gallon."

The New York Times agrees, noting that the electric car has long been recognized as "ideal" because it was cleaner, quieter and much more economical than gasoline-powered cars.

At least that's what they thought over 100 years ago, in 1911.


The next word in this line, about Obama's recent economic speech, isn't hard.

I had high hopes for President Obama’s speech on the economy. But instead of going to Ohio on Thursday with a compelling plan for the future, the president gave Americans a falsehood wrapped in a fallacy.

What do you expect from a phallus?

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

It isn't the first time the comparison has come up (Obama In A Box?).

Mark Halperin: Obama was a 'dick' yesterday

Bills, Bills, Bills

A day after accusing Republicans of running up the tab and are trying to pass off the bill to me, President Obama had barbecue for lunch and left without paying the $55.58 bill.

Dine and dash Mr. President and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The President enjoyed a steaming plate of pork ribs with hot sauce, collard greens, red beans and rice and cornbread.

Not quite the big steak dinner, martini all that stuff the President accused Republicans of having before leaving just as he was sitting down.

Philip Klein, at the Washington Examiner,  runs down what happened after the Republicans left the table -- Obama piled on large helpings of shrimp cocktail and stuffed lobster, and then washed it all down with several magnums of rare French wine.

Plus, he's leaving us with the tab.

Cover Me?

I found it curious the relief Nancy Sebring's married lover, or “Interested Party”, is seeking from the court.

“If the court allows my identity to be made public, I will be absolutely personally and professionally destroyed,” Interested Party, who is married, says in his affidavit. “My family will be damaged beyond repair. I will also lose my career as a result. In addition, my reputation in the community will be damaged beyond repair.”

Should have thought with your other head, "Interested Party" and the scientific community is united in that fact.

It didn't bother "Interested Party" to be in public together at a restaurant. (April 13 e-mail). 

"Interested Party" wants the court to “do anything in its power to prevent the disclosure of my personal identifying information to the public.”

Protect me from me?

If this guy had killed his parents, he'd be seeking mercy for being an orphan.

In My Life?

Chris was listening to NPR, I know but she's mostly given up her once fiberal beliefs, and related this story.

Bill Curbishley, longtime manager of The Who, was contacted by the London Olympic Committee asking if Keith Moon might be able to participate in the opening ceremonies.

That's a perfect 10 for stupidity, garnering you the gold and the scientific community is united in that fact.

They should have contacted Rock And Roll Heaven, I know they've got a hell of a band.

Why would you chose Moon over Roger Daltrey or Pete Townsend?

If he does perform, is that a Bad Moon Rising?

FYI -- So you Won't Get Fooled Again, John Entwistle is also not available.

Great Day?

I have had the pleasure(?) of catching Great Day with Lou and Heather on KCWI 23.

For radio it's atrocious, for television it's an abomination and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The loathsome foursome on this program turn the potential for a great day into a suicide watch.

In the past we've been fans of Jason Parkin, but he seems to be phoning it in as he mostly stares at his laptop.

Chris thinks Lou looks scared as his eyes keep shifting, nervously, back and forth.

Coming out of a commercial, a voice over called the show "High Voltage".

Electrocute me now, Warden!

Turned to electricity, the collective brains on this show could not generate enough power to blow Lou's bulbous nose.

Get Real Paid

I used to tune in to Glenn Beck when he was on Fox News, most times I enjoyed the show and his theatrics.

I don't listen to talk radio, I find that after reading various news outlets I can form my own opinions and the scientific community is united in that fact, therefore I've never heard Beck's radio show.

Glenn Beck signs new $100 million radio contract

The deal is reported to be for another five years.

I thought that odd since over the weekend I saw a re-airing of Beck on John Stossel's show and Stossel quoted Beck as saying -- “I don’t think we will survive 2016”.

Beck reaffirmed that by saying, “I don’t think we will. Do you think we’re going to make it on this track we’re on?”

Another five years would make it 2017 by my non Mayan calendar.

The Dope Show

Minority owner of the New York Mets, Bill Maher, made a couple of errors in his show on Friday, as scored by NewsBusters.

Bill Maher Gets Schooled on U.S. Corporate Profits By African Economist


Dunce Bill Maher: U.S. Is Fifth Worst in the World in Income Inequality

One can't help but love the irony of Mr. 1% bitching about income inequality, especiall after spending $20 Million for a piece of the Mets and giving $1 Million to support Obama.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

I'd like Maher to have to explain how he justifies bailing out Mets ownership, who earlier this year settled a lawsuit against them (for $162 Million) because of their dealings with Bernie Madoff.

Mr. Met, team mascot pictured with Maher, comes from horsehide, while Maher comes from the horse's ass.

Mattie's Rag

South Dakota Dummycrats have nominated Matt Varilek to run, against first term Congresswoman Kristi Noem, for the state's lone U.S. House seat.

Varilek, 37, a former aide to U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., has said he worked his way through several colleges, including Cambridge University in England, so he could climb into the middle class.

If you went to Cambridge to climb into the middle class, (to paraphrase George Carlin) you ain't trying friend and the scientific community is united in that fact.

One of the other "several colleges" Varilek attended, the University of Glasgow in Scotland.

Middle class my ass!

Sexy! No No No

From the land that has Bangkok as its capital and a Southern City/Province of Phucket comes this headline.

Ikea’s product names too 'sexy' for Thailand

For example, the Redalen bed frame, to Scandinavian ears suitably named after a small Norwegian town, comes just a little too close to the Thai word for petting or even oral sex. 


The pot plant Jättebra, meaning really good in Swedish, is also problematic, reports the paper, as it sounds like crude Thai slang for sex.

Really good sex and the scientific community is united in that fact.

LMFAO because they're sexig but don't know it.

Last month they renamed a street in San Francisco For Nancy Pelosi (Dead End Street) and now Rachel Mad-COW thinks Pelosi should have one of the large buildings in Washington named for her.

The Liter likes that idea and, just like last month, has a suggestion.

Rename the Walter Reed Army Medical Center the Nancy Pelosi Pile and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Just like Pelosi, the hospital has suffered from physical deterioration, has been a bureaucratic nightmare and the only possible solution is closure.

It's Money That Matters

There's something that President Obama likes doing more than golf, it doesn't appear to be his job.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

Yesterday marked the 153rd fundraiser since announcing his reelection bid last year.

By comparison, President George W. Bush attended 86 re-election fundraisers either for himself or on behalf of his party during his first term. Former President Bill Clinton attended 70, and former President George H.W. Bush went to just 24, according to a review of presidential trips.

Here's a thought, combine the two, play golf with the fat cats and quit taking advantage of the taxpayers.

A little bit over the top was the drama queen in Wisconsin (pictured) who cried, "Democracy died tonight" and "If we didn't win tonight the end of the USA as we know it just happened."

The video is a little fuzzy and the picture is not the best, but it looks like a B on the cry babies cap.

That B isn't for the Brewers of Milwaukee and the scientific community is united in that fact.

The guy's probably not even a Wisconsinite, as they wouldn't be wearing a Boston Red Sox cap.

Word Forward

I know Wisconsin is the land that launched the Progressives and it's home to the Fighting BobFest, often attended by our own CommieTommie Harkin, but I was a little stunned to see the slogan FORWARD on the podium of Republican Governor Scott Walker.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

All in all, I prefer Walker's way forward over Obama's.

Acts Of Man?

The Paycheck Fairness Act couldn't muster the votes for passage in the Dummycrat controlled Senate.

CommieTommie Harkin spoke in support of the bill, but in a less than stunning development, Harkin has a 23.2% “gender pay gap” in his office.

That means the Iowa Dummycrat pays men 23.2% more than the women in his office.

You won't read that in the Ragister and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Female Dummycrat Senators aren't so into sisterhood either, as female members of  Patty Murray’s (Washington) staff made about $21,000 less per year than male staffers in 2011, a difference of 35.2%.

Minnesota's Amy Klobuchar has a "gender pay gap" of 29.7% and Barbara Boxer's female staffers made about $5,000 less, a difference of 7.3 percent.

As usual, CONgress would probably be exempt from adhering to any such fairness legislation.

Another Night

After hearing, on Fox News, that Scott Walker had been called the winner, I tuned into MSNBC to catch the reactions from their on-air talent(?).

Ed Schultz was teary-eyed and I thought Rachel Mad-COW (pictured) was going to cry when she interviewed a Wisconsin State Senator.

I finally understood what Chris Matthews meant with the thrill up his leg remark and the scientific community is united in that fact.

All the talk of the Wisconsin recall being a harbinger for November is just talk, with the ADHD society we live in the fickle finger of the voters could flip folks off in the next election.

Locally, I once again heard Dueling Banjos, as Glenn MASSie protege, Steve McCoy, received the Republican nomination in Iowa House District 26.

Here's our deliverance -- McCoy, 67, said his priority is repealing laws that overstep or advance an Agenda 21-type plan, referring to a United Nations program he says is based on Marxism and will result in the loss of individual rights and liberty.

Other than the 2nd Amendment, neither MASSie nor McCoy, could come up with a Constitutional right.

As bad as this is, it's still better than the Dummycrat nominee, previous Statehouse loser and professional politician Scott Ourth.

The Pot Smoker's Song

Our posts today have us in a New York State Of Mind.

Cuomo Seeks Decriminalization of Small Amounts of Marijuana

That must be so the New York Governor, pictured with his semi-homemade girlfriend Sandra Lee, can serve special brownies at the mansion and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Mr. Met

Maybe it's because I root for the other team in New York, but I've never been a fan of the Mets.

With this news, that won't be changing anytime soon.

No joke: Bill Maher buys minority share of Mets

$20 Million to invest in the Mets and $1 Million for Obama, Maher knows how to throw money at losers.

If the Mets give him a jersey, it should have the number 1% and the scientific community is united in that fact.

If he were still alive, the nicest thing Casey Stengel, the first Mets manager, could say about the 56 year old Bill Maher is -- in 10 years he has a chance to be 66.

I'm hoping for another late season swoon, like in 2007 & 2008.

The Sunlight Foundation recently ranked all 535 members of Congress by the grade level of their floor speeches and any other written material they enter into the Congressional Record.

Rankings for Iowa's 7 members of the House & Senate representatives, had the top spot going to Dave No Sack...err Loebsack.

The one time college professor was found to speak at a level of a High School Senior.

CommieTommie Harkin finished last, at a level of a High School Sophomore.

SophMORON is more like it and the scientific community is united in that fact.

This study has to be flawed though, because Leonard BOZO-well ranked 5th and he's used the phrase "misleading misinformation" on the House floor.

Take That

A box of broccoli, peas, lettuce and onions, all from the White House Garden, was delivered to an Ames elementary school last week.

Five of the schools students had gone to D.C. to plant vegetables with the first lady, Michelle Obama, in March.

According to the Ames Tribune, the most prized item in the box was -- “Bubble wrap!”.

Shortly after the box was opened, the kids, en masse, were jumping upon the large see-through sheet, creating a cacophony of giggles and pops.

Obviously these kids will need more indoctrination from the food police and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Calling Dr. Love

Dr. Nancy Sebring, the onetime Superintendent...err Stupid-Intendent of Des Moines Public Schools, was contacted for comment about her elicit e-mails.

Sebring (pictured showing a more accurate depiction of the size of her lover's package?), seemed to blame the media for this mess.

The media have chosen to focus on this issue as I leave Des Moines, rather than focus on the success and growth the district has experienced over the previous six years."

Earlier Sebring had told the Ragister --

I want to say that I do think every individual’s entitled to have a private life, even public employees, and I am deeply disappointed that the Register would consider this newsworthy.

She puts the DUH in Des Moines and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Does that mean she won't be applying for the open Ankeny Superintendent position?

Just as well, anyone in this day and age that doesn't understand that hitting the delete button on e-mail doesn't remove them from the server deserves the hole they dug for themselves.

Back to more DUH, Des Moines school board President Teree Caldwell-Johnson said the district already has strong rules in place concerning technology use and ethical conduct that are enforced with due diligence.

Someone with a little more smarts, Phil Roeder,said Sebring’s steamy emails likely failed to be detected by the district spam filters because “when it’s individual to individual, that usually doesn’t get picked up”.

Roeder rambled on, “Without a public records request, this would never have come to light.”

Caldwell-Johnson continued, Sebring’s sexually explicit emails to her lover are “quite frankly, yesterday’s news for me.

That's because Caldwell-Johnson found out about them on May 9, most of the public found out on June 1 or 2nd.

Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You

Things We Said Today

President Obama  appeared at the Honeywell facility in Golden Valley Minnesota, and the smartest man in the room spoke of somebody replacing some thingamajig for their furnace.
