    A South African man was stripped and superglued to his exercise bicycle and his mouth glued shut for hours by armed robbers who ransacked his home and helped themselves to his finest Scotch whisky.

The man was hijacked at gunpoint in a wealthy suburb of Johannesburg and forced to lead the thieves to his home in another area, a spokesman for the emergency services told the SAPA news agency. He was forced to strip before being superglued to the seat of his exercise bicycle. His hands and feet were...

Senator's Aides Say Heightens Presidential Prospects  By JAKE TAPPER, with ANNE-MARIE DORNING and MARK REEVES Dec. 11 - After a rocking visit to N.H. this weekend, an appearance tonight on Monday Night Football is the latest sign that Barak Obama is running for president. Adoring, standing-room-only crowds giddily awaited Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., at his first stop this morning, at a book signing in Portsmouth, N.H. But it didn't sound like the freshman senator was selling just books. "We've got a series of very important decisions to make, and we have the...

Wearing a Rolling Stones T-shirt, baggy pants and white socks, a long-haired Catherine C. Mayo, 59, appeared in federal court yesterday on a charge of interfering with a flight crew on United 932 as it flew from London’s Heathrow Airport to Washington, D.C.

    Bjork upstages Harrison Ford with Vaseline and a whaling ship By Hugh Davies in Venice(Filed: 03/09/2005)The crazy world of Bjork proved to be so outrageous at the Venice Film Festival yesterday that she upstaged an appearance by Harrison Ford holding the hand of Calista Flockhart. The Hollywood stars, a romantic item for some years now, were in Italy for the unveiling of Fragile, a horror film featuring the former Ally McBeal actress.However, they were virtually ignored by the paparazzi, while the Icelandic singer took the event by storm with her new movie, a 135-minute epic shot in Japan in...

    In closing arguments at the end of a bitter four-month trial that could send Jackson to prison, Deputy District Attorney Ron Zonen played the "Vaseline" card! During his closing presentation, Zonen showed pictures of Jackson's bedroom and bathroom taken during a raid on Neverland in '03. Zonen pointed out the location of sex magazines and, at one point, mentioned that you could see a container of Vaseline in one picture! Lead prosecutor Tom Sneddon, who, oddly, did not deliver closing arguments, had hoped to present a shocking story of Vaseline and alleged sex abuse during the evidence phase of the...

    In the beginning, I think I was like most people who wanted to know if Michael Jackson was guilty or innocent. Now I just want the whole sick thing to end. The question is what is more disgusting, the details of his alleged sex acts with minors or the media coverage of every piece of evidence in the trial? Wednesday nights headline on Drudge is "SNEDDON TO PRESENT 'VASELINE EVIDENCE' IN JACKO TRIAL... **GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION**..." Prosecutor Tom Sneddon is planning on calling a witness to the stand to testify that Michael Jackson requested one of his guards to get a...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    What happens when habitual warmongering and BushCo lies become part of our daily diet? And then you read the appalling little story about how BushCo is now "taking steps" to further the investigation into why their original intelligence on Iraq was so painfully, treasonously, colon-clenchingly wrong, why they thought Saddam had giant Costco-sized warehouses stacked to the rafters with snarling nukes and nasty biotoxins and active warheads when, in fact, he had nothing but a couple Dumpsters full of rusty 20-year-old shell casings and a bucket of stale glue.

    We kill millions of pets every year Who cares if a few get posh shelters and humane laws? OK. So I tend to think people who insist on calling themselves pet "guardians" instead of "owners" are exasperating and a bit wrongheaded, and that such uber-PC thinking does almost nothing to change or improve the behavior of the thousands of animal abusers in this country. And I tend to agree with fabulous dog writer Jon Katz that such semantic sidestepping does more harm to the animals than good, and leads to naive treatment, lack of decent training and an outright ignorance...

This is the year you resolve to let it all hang out and lick the fingertips of the divine and stop holding back and stop quivering with unchecked anticipation/dread as you realize that, if you care a whit for self-definition and spiritual nuance and hot wet intelligence and deep karmic color in this tsunami-hammered, Bush-ravaged world, you are desperately needed right now. It's true. Alas, many are dejected. Many of the blue or...

    Attention, liberal shoppers! Next year, screw those GOP-supportin' companies, and try buying blue Do you care much that greasy ol' Pizza Hut gave tens of thousands in PAC money to the GOP last year? How about the fact that Taco Bell stopped pumping out their happily toxic semirancid meatlike substances just long enough to write a fat check to the conservative Right? Isn't that weirdly fascinating, in a depressing and indigestible sort of way? Does it matter a whit that, say, Fruit of the Loom underwear gave nearly 100 percent of its corporate donations to tighty-whitey-wearing Republicans, nearly every one...

And you look at the photos and see the breathtakingly elegant architecture...
