Another patient for the “major brain deficiency” ward

Burglar breaks into house. Burglar takes shower. Homeowner returns. Burglar calls 911, worried that homeowner might have a gun. No joke, no lie.

That about covers it

My favorite webcomic yet again makes me wonder whether it’s spying on my brain:

Whan an awful idea

With gas prices rising, it looks like there’s increasing pressure to tap the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to alleviate some of the pain. Now, I’m no fan of $4-a-gallon gas, but is this a strategic emergency? No, it’s me being pissed that my commute got $10 more expensive this month. Hardly a national emergency. Isn’t this thing supposed to be used, you know, strategically?

Then again, it is indeed a strategic emergency from a political perspective. No matter what party is in the majority, if voters drive to the polls with cars burning gas that cost four bucks a gallon or more, that majority is going to get slaughtered.
