Yes, Master.

The Tour will take you in, chew you up and spit you out:
18:10 - Voigt Eliminated From Le Tour 2005
The overall leader after nine stages finished the 11th stage in 168th position. Jens Voigt was the second-last rider in the stage to Briancon. Although he fought hard to stay within the time limit which is calculated on a percentage on the winning time, he has been eliminated from the Tour.

I wanna be a blogstar and you can be my Jawa.

Wait, wait. I can do this. Hey, CNN! LOOK. OVER. HERE!

EiP says Karl Rove is the anti-Christ. No, wait - he is Satan in the flesh. Yeah and he should be fired because if I say it CNN will recognize this "right leaning blog".


The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!

Okay, so this is kinda strange, eh?
Fisherman Erik Eide of Bow told the Bellingham Herald it looked like a dead whale but when he moved in closer Sunday, Eide and three crewmen thought it was a little submarine or a bomb with stubby wings.

Then Eide remembered seeing a a program on the Discovery Channel about a sonar rig towed behind submarines so he decided to haul it aboard for salvage. That's when they saw the Russian lettering on the side.

I'm not sure what to make of this. There was an old Soviet sub that was anchored at a pier here in Seattle for quite some time for tours the last couple years and it has recently disappeared. I don't know if this is some sort of "garbage" that came off it or if it is something bigger from the present or the past.

Who knows - could be something experimental the University of Washington lost.

Vinokourov Dropped

16:52 - Vinokourov Dropped
Vinokourov has been dropped by the Armstrong group
And the 92nd Tour de France just got interesting. I have maintained that Vino was Armstrong's biggest competition of this year's tour. Ullrich seems to be keeping up, though. Maybe the Kaiser has what it takes to keep it close this year.

4:54 p.m. Armstrong comes up to Popovych to tell him to step up the pace. Popo rides hard and splits the group. Ullrich has dropped.
And just like that, Armstrong takes control.

Kloden is dropped.

The 3 big T-Mobile dudes have cracked. They tried hard to attack Lance the other day and failed miserably.

Can we get a SCOTUS opinion on this, please?

"My truth is that I am a Thai dwarf Brahman bull... and I deserve the right to marry under the equal protection clause in the United States Constitution."
