I've Got Indiana On My Mind
Hillary won Pennsylvania by ten points. That means the split of Pennsylvania's pledged delegates is at least 80 for Sen. Clinton and 66 for Sen. Obama with 12 yet to be decided.
That means that Sen. Obama still has a triple digit lead in delegates, the lead in the popular vote, and in a recent ABCNews poll Democrats said 2-1 that Sen. Obama is more likely to win in the fall.
Indiana voters, I implore you. Put an end to this. Vote Obama and let the Democrats regroup for the real fight, the fight for the keys to the White House.

Just A Closer Float With Thee?
Whatever happened to the church bake sale or bowl-a-thon for charity? I guess in these days of Survivor and Fear Factor, the public just isn't entertained by peach cobbler and rented shoes anymore.
Roman Catholic Rev. Adelir Antonio de Carli decided to raise money for a "spiritual" rest-stop for truckers in Paranagua, Brazil. To do it, he wanted to break a record for the longest time in-flight with helium-filled party balloons. That's right, he strapped a bunch of party balloons to a chairs and planned to fly for 19 hours at an altitude of around 17,000 feet.
They have found balloons in the ocean, but no sign of him.

It's Not That, I'm Self-Medicating!
Aussie researchers have published a study that says men who masturbate five or more times a week are a third less likely to get prostate cancer.
Wow, this is a huge turn around. We've gone from self-gratification causing hairy palms and blindness to it being a potentially life saving activity. The next thing you know, massage parlors are going to start advertising prostate treatments.
"Excuse me sir, can I interest you in the latest prostate cancer preventative? Wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more."

Lynchings in Congo as penis theft panic hits capital
I don't even know what to say. Sometimes the stories just speak for themselves.
This from Reuters:
Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men's penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.
Purported victims, 14 of whom were also detained by police, claimed that sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear, in what some residents said was an attempt to extort cash with the promise of a cure.
Police arrested the accused sorcerers and their victims in an effort to avoid the sort of bloodshed seen in Ghana a decade ago, when 12 suspected penis snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs. The 27 men have since been released.
"I'm tempted to say it's one huge joke," Kinshasa's police chief, Jean-Dieudonne Oleko said.
"But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it's become tiny or that they've become impotent. To that I tell them, 'How do you know if you haven't gone home and tried it'," he said.
