A Question Regarding Earth Day

Why do we trust something so important as the Enviroment to the irresponsible and unwashed people who worship it?

Why they call it Fox News

No one has asked me why they call it Fox News. If you watch Fox News at night you will see a reporter named Laurie Dhue. The other evening as I was flipping between CNN, MSNBC, and Fox watching coverage of our war in Iraq. I landed on Fox News and noticed that Laurie was wearing a pink turtleneck sweater. By itself, this wouldn't be odd- but then of course- this was a news broadcast. I also noticed almost immediately that her lipstick made her lips looks extremely wet. I couldn't help but sigh to myself about the juxtoposition of this lovely young woman with moist lips telling me about the impending destruction of Baghdad. To make the juxtoposition of images even worse a commercial break interrupted the broadcast (or was the broadcast interrupting the commercial stream?). Upon returning from commercial break Fox cut to a wide shot of the two reporters Laurie Dhue and What's-his-face. Laruie was not only wearing a pink turtleneck- and I alledge that it was the same one she was wearing before the commercials- but I noticed she was wearing a black skirt that came barely halfway down her incredibly gorgeous thigh and black boots (leather?) that came to just under her knee. What! Laurie Dhue was the perfect image of the party girl in the whatever students consider "the brainiac sorority". Her lips, her thigh, the lurid descriptions of victory, her blond hair staying almost motionless as she describes the carnage- it was almost pornographic. Fox News: Neo-Conservative Reporting from Women apparently on their way to a Co-Ed party.
