I heard that Richardson did go to the hospital. I wonder if anything could have been done. Sigh.

The Pope is indeed an ass. I cannot believe that he says the things he says. Ass. Grrr.


Ah well, the Pope is an idiot - no surprise there. They usually are, it's part of the job description.
Before last week I had never heard of Natasha Richardson. Should I have known that person? I'm sure she can't be the only one who dies in a skiing accident, so I don't really see why I should care.
That picture is awesome. Even I with my aversion to politics and history recognize tons of people in it. Ok, a lot of them are actors (Hepburn, Monroe, Brando). Is that Beethoven playing the piano? And I think I spotted Goethe! He doesn't really look perfectly like himself, but I'm pretty sure it's meant to be him. I love that thy put in Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden. Not to forget Staling and Mao, Che, Karl Marx and even Lenin. And is that Dubya in that red shirt, looking through a telescope? The guy leading the camel is Darwin, right? But who is the guy dying in the chair beside him? I can't place the face upside down.
Anyway, I love that picture. I totally would hang a big version of that in my house somewhere. :-)


Uh... "distributing condoms makes things worse." Oh, yeah... take any & all condoms out of Africa & that pesky AIDS problem will just work itself out.

That is just disturbing. Religious leaders really freak me out sometimes. Wait... no - most of the time. Ok, well... all of the time.

I hadn't seen any of Natasha Richardson's movies, though I had heard of her. Even though I'm not very familiar with her films, I found it horrible that she was so young - 45? That is just sad, regardless of who it is, or how they die, whether I know much about them or not.

My husband & I were inspecting that picture the other day, both of us pointing at the monitor & shouting out names. Between the 2 of us, we managed to get almost everyone.

This is a cool post - I like the random thoughts. :)


Unfortunately, I let one of my blogs (observations from missy's window) fall to the wayside and I know you stopped there occasionally. However, my other blog is still going strong and I've given you an award. Check it out here:


Yeah, the Pope really stuck his foot in it in this one.

Love that painting. I got a bunch but far from all of them. DH and I will have to have a go at it tonight. I had a b&w line drawn poster years ago with 100 Dead tunes hidden in it. Now those were fun to look for ;-).


I can't belief that anyone gives a damn what the pope says. What century is this?


Wow, that painting's really cool! Now I'm going to be spending the next couple of days staring at it all day!
