something smells like onions

Question: Having so many things to do this weekend, what have I been doing? Answer: Reading news from all over the internet, and then blogging about it. [well, not really all day, just when I can't concentrate on whatever I am doing. So, let's say 40% of the time.] I've been coming across some news stories that I would expect to see in the onion. But, no, as much as I might hope that they are satire, they're real news stories. My last post about "gay sex bombs" is one example. Another is this news headline: Bush has declared today "National Sanctity of Human Life Day". Yet another that I really, really wish were a joke is "Congress killed measures to ban U.S. use of torture". This article "What the First Lady Will Wear" I wish were from the onion, but sadly, it is not. Highlights of this incredible piece of journalism include: "Laura Bush has made her choice. Ending weeks of speculation on Seventh Avenue about what she would wear on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, Mrs. Bush said Monday that Oscar de la Renta would design her inaugural ball gown, a dress that for a time at least will be the most scrutinized in the country." "Mrs. Bush appears to be displaying a growing awareness that her power is entrenched. She has gone from being just folks to being a bit imperial, assuming a bit more of a queenly role" [ahhh- I'm glad she is feeling imperial and queenly for the coronation of King George] But just in case you were worried that Laura's dress might be too daring- have no fear: "There is nothing intimidating about Laura's ball gown. To judge from the sketches released by the White House on Monday, it has a reassuringly familiar look, reminiscent in spirit and in silhouette of the gowns James Galanos designed for Nancy Reagan in the 1980's." Whew. Back to Nancy Reagan and everything is fine again.
