I've been thinking - forget Iran, Iraq and North Korea, if you watch, listen to, and read the news you could not be blamed for thinking the most important issues facing our nation and the real Axis of Evil is - Brittney, Anna-Nicole and Brangelina. R.I.P. American Journalism

Fun on a Friday in New York?

AP - NEW YORK -- In what it says is an attempt to get students to debate the issue of illegal immigration, a student Republican club at New York University has dreamed up a novel game that has some on campus calling the event "racist."
In the game planned for Thursday, called "Find the Illegal Immigrant," members of the club who present their NYU identification become immigration agents looking for an illegal in the crowd. The agent who successfully identifies the illegal immigrant wins a gift certificate.
Students have sent club officials e-mails calling the the event "racist" and "disgusting." But the club said it is about stoking debate on the issue of illegal immigrants.


Olbermann's penchant for, er, honesty is fully on display in the piece as he takes down Anderson Cooper ("I gather... he is the only person who has not been informed that he is a marketing experiment"), Nancy Grace ("Anybody who would embellish the story of their own fiancé's murder should spend that hour a day not on television but in a psychiatrist's chair"), and Glenn Beck ("A wolf in sheep's clothing. A very dangerously bigoted guy who's selling himself as a pragmatic philosopher"). He does seem to like Brian Williams though, at least ("The funniest person I have met in television news," a trait, says Olbermann, that makes him well-suited for his own job).
Olbermann's tendency to trash-talk is, by now, well-known, but still, after re-upping with a sweet four-year multimillion-dollar contract, guess he's not too worried about karma.
1st Beaver spotted in NYC in 200 years
2 hours, 26 minutes ago
NEW YORK - Beavers grace New York City's official seal. But the industrious rodents have not been seen in the flesh here for as many as 200 years — until this week.
Biologists videotaped a beaver swimming up the Bronx River on Wednesday. Its twig-and-mud lodge had been spotted earlier on the river bank, but the tape confirmed the presence of the animal itself.
"It had to happen because beaver populations are expanding, and their habitats are shrinking," said Dietland Muller-Schwarze, a beaver expert at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. "We're probably going to see more of them in the future."
I love Beavers, very cool animals, welcome back to the city Jose!!
