Rocky VI

Looks like Sylvester Stallone got the go-ahead for a new "Rocky" movie. Only in this one, he's a widower. No "Yo, Aidrian!" plaintive wails.

This means that out of the principal characters from the first movie, the only ones to survive are Paulie, a degenerate alcoholic and Rocky, who wins fights by letting the other guys hit him in the head until they tire themselves out.

I don't think his shoulders will have enough room for all the angels looking for space there.

I don't know what's more absurd: the name of the villian is Mason "the Line" Dixon, or the fact that Stallone goes right to filming Rambo IV after this.

Baseball Post Mortem

Now that the Sox have been eliminated, I've basically signed off from the baseball season. Well, strike that - I actually signed off once the Yankees were eliminated. I hope the White Sox win it all - they've had to suffer hearing about the Red Sox and Cubs for all these years and they were just as miserable for the past 90 years or so as the (Red) Sox and Cubs. The team I least want to see win it all is the Angels. Where the hell are they from, anyway? If a team can't figure out what city they're from, they don't deserve to be playing for the World Series. I've decided to call them the San Angeles Angels, after the fictional megalopolis of the future predicted in Demolition Man.

Harriet Meirs Qualifications

Who says we don't know anything about her? She is Bush's personal lawyer, so we know that she has an impressive command of drunk driving and cocaine possession laws.

Don't think the Supreme Court is that important? Check out this story.
