Thanksgiving, USA






Surviving in America isn't easy these days. Especially if you're African American. Just ask any investment banker or Wall Street criminal and they'll tell you for sure...

New York's Cash Runs out in 4 Weeks!





So what will happen if New York State runs out of money? Does Wall Street kick in to make things better? Do we borrow from New Jersey? China? Stephen Spielberg?

Maybe we should steal from the educational system and rob from from health care. Sounds logical to me. Reasonable even.

Here's the story about the Empire State crashing and burning in 4 weeks time, right from the Gov's mouth...CRASH!

From Russia with Love


I Spy


Why do you travel? For me, I need it almost like I need sex. In fact, if I don't get any (travel, that is), I get irritated and depressed. Same thing with no sex. Must be a link there. Here's why I'm in Russia. Land of the Tsars. Land of impossibly beautiful women. A land, as a child of Tricky Dick and the Cold War, I have completely misunderstood for decades. Get ready to rewrite the history books people. Russia Rocks! And Moscow, Putin's personal crib, is on fucking intense town!

Beijing Snow Job!



"Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow..."



The Chinese are making it snow. With drought making things drier in Beijing than that two year old fortune cookie stuffed in the back of your junk drawer, meteorologists managed to seed the clouds which in turn, made it snow (don't ask me how this works). The resulting precipitation was welcome sight. Perhaps the Chinese will invent a way to make trees grow dollar bills.
