I had a bit of a case of writers block last night, well thats not quite right. More a case of writer slow down. I had a hard time making ideas come out. as a result my podcast will be a little late. I will work on it some more tonight. I should get all the stories writen and maybe record and put it up either tonight or saturday. I need to just write a story a day from now on. They are not that long after all.

Now I also need to get a good recording device somewhere for my special effects I want to add and the "interview" I want to do. Hmm fun fun.

U.S. Rejects U.N. Report on Gitmo

GENEVA — The United States should shut down the prison for terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay and either release the detainees or put them on trial, the United Nations said in a report released Thursday.

The world body also called on the United States to refrain from practices that "amount to torture."

The White House rejected the recommendation to shut the prison.Collapse )

funny when the white house did it to french fries, funny now.

Iran Renames Danish Pastries
Ali Akbar Dareini

TEHRAN, IRAN — Iranians love Danish pastries, but when they look for the flaky dessert at the bakery they now have to ask for "Roses of the Prophet Muhammad."

Bakeries across the capital were covering up their ads for Danish pastries Thursday after the confectioners' union ordered the name change in retaliation for caricatures of the Muslim prophet published in a Danish newspaper.

"Given the insults by Danish newspapers against the prophet, as of now the name of Danish pastries will give way to 'Rose of Muhammad' pastries," the union said in its order.Collapse )
