Business: Cigarmakers in a panic: "It's no mathematical error: The federal government has proposed raising taxes on premium cigars, the kind Newman's family has been rolling for decades in Ybor City, by as much as 20,000 percent."
Somewhere along the way, our government lost it's bearing.

Flight of the Conchords is the funniest summer television viewing to be found. Dry, British, uh, New Zealandish humor and nerd jokes are where it's at. Imminently quotable, my friend Chad and I amuse
each other ourselves by IM'ing quotes from the show randomly throughout the day.
Oh, and when watching the clip, be sure to pay attention to the girl's reactions to each proposed thing she might be into. She goes through a range of reactions, starting from happy to coy and intrigued all the way to freaked out.

Wembley Urged To Take Meat Off Live Earth Menu - UK News Headlines: "However, Peta campaigner Yvonne Taylor said that it would be 'hypocritical' if the damage caused by the industry was overlooked at the concert, and said that the group had written to the managing director of Wembley Stadium, Alex Horne, urging him not to sell meat at the event.
She said: 'There's no such thing as a meat eating environmentalist.'"
Dogmatic orthodoxy sucks.
