Tidbits and Biscuits - Dec. 22, 2005

Penguin kidnapped in Great Britain
Officials at some zoo in in the only truly civilized English speaking country in the World are scrambling to locate a baby penguin they fear may have been bird napped. Baby Toga went missing a week ago and now has only 24 hours left to live unless it is reunited with Mom and Dad. Apparently young Toga can only eat fish regurgitated by Mom. At 18 inches tall, the little tyke should be an easy find. It isn't like it will blend in with the pigeons at Trafalgar Square. Interviews with zoo officials who understand penguin speak say Mom and Dad are so upset, they have stopped eating.

Security at Airports relaxed
Deadly scissors shorter than 4 inches allowed. Every grandma wanting to catch up on her sewing instead of watching the in flight movie may now sew about the country.

Patriot Act extended for 6 months
~ Bush declares victory.
~ Democrats declare victory
Spinmeisters from both sides claim victory. I guess that is what a compromise does. It allows each side the luxury of claiming victory while sweeping the defeat under the rug. All I see in this delaying tactic is another case of Congress not facing up to it's responsibility to make the tough decisions. What a bunch of losers.
