Really?

Clorox claims to harness the "magical powers of oxygen".

Can anyone tell me what a magical power is doing in a packet of laundry detergent? Why was I not informed earlier? I wonder if Clorox could magic me up some winning Lotto tickets or something.

I just got a letter from tcom saying: pay us $324.05 by Tuesday or we will cut off all your services. Um. Thanks to very kind [read: unreasonably good to me, given who and what I am] friends of mine I have $100 so I can at least pay that towards it. Maybe I should ask Clorox for a miracle.

"Dear Lord Clorox, I beseech thee to harness the magical powers of oxygen to keep my phone connected! Many thanks, phreq. PS Do you have to clean the toilets in heaven, or do you just get used?"

Barbara Bush made a stunning comment today about the New Orleans refugees staying in the Houston Astrodome:

As President Bush battled criticism over the response to Hurricane Katrina, his mother declared it a success for evacuees who "were underprivileged anyway," saying on Monday that many of the poor people she had seen while touring a Houston relocation site were faring better than before the storm hit.

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway," she said, "so this is working very well for them." - nytimes.com

I wonder if they just sometimes should keep their rich WASPy mouths shut.

I have to admit I've been quite enjoying seeing the occasional journalist snap while interviewing someone, stop being polite and essentially call them on the utter crap that they've been pouring forth. There are some good articles and transcripts from a few days back floating around.
