Two violent blasts ripped through the Moscow underground transit system early this morning killing more than 37 people. Reports indicate that two female suicide bombers strategically sought out the two locations for detonating their bombs, Park Kultury and Lubyanka, due to both location's reliable heavy volume of human traffic. While it is as yet unknown what group is behind the attacks, officials are calling it an act of "terrorism." At any one time, 2 million people are utilizing the Moscow subway system far beneath the city's surface. A similar bombing occurred in the underground metro in 2004 which claimed more than 40 lives and left 250 injured. get the full story here at RT.

"Hey, Joe, you gonna hurl?"
There's nothing I like more than cracking a cold one at the end of long working day. Apparently so does BO. He also likes to light up a Marlboro Red on occasion. This week his doctors told him to lay off both vices. But I have advice for BO: smoke 'em if you got 'em and drink if you're dry. You have the most stressful job in the world and even though other countries like to think we're losing our overall world power status, you don't see Haiti or Chile looking to Iran or Syria for assistance with their tragic earthquake disasters. Come to think of it, I'm going to have my accountant withhold 20 bucks on my Federal tax return just so BO can run out for a 12 pack of Bud and a pack of smokes.
