Articles of Impeachment
Under circumstances that can best be described as "suspicious," the www.kucinich.us website was crippled early this morning a few hours after Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced 35 extensively documented Articles of Impeachment against President George W. Bush.
Until we can restore the website and implement additional security measures, you can find the full list and detailed Articles at
If you would like to show your support for the Congressman's efforts, please go to myinfo.kucinich.us to offer your comments and provide us with contact information so that we can continue to keep you informed.

holden my loyal little friend turns a ripe old 10 today. this is from his ride home after being plucked from the breeder's bargain bin.
i just got back from the vet, where i left holden. he is right now in surgery to remove a rib from his intestines. i didn't feed him any ribs, i guess he got it somehow in the neighbor's yard where he was playing wednesday. he threw up twice yesterday and i wasn't too worried, then threw up again today & i took him in to the vet.
he might be able to come home tomorrow or he might have to stay the whole weekend at the emergency vet.
we're talking thousands of dollars. and one sick, sick puppy.
i was supposed to go tubing down the green river tomorrow with a bunch of people, not any more.
i hope he's okay. my little buddy.
just talked to the vet, holden made it through surgery, the bone was in his upper small intestine, caught in the spot where he had surgery back when he was 2 & ate a pair of my roommate's tights. it was just about to perforate, another day and he would've been a goner. she said they saved the bone for me. he's doped up on pain killers resting overnight and she'll call first thing in the morning to let me know how he's doing. but so far so good.
A little creative/random rock-juice for those of you tired of thinking of band/album names and corresponding cover-art. It also doubles as an interesting commentary on how random rock-related names/titles and images are compared to years past, when you could guess the name of a song as soon as you heard the chorus. Debut albums were self-titled and record covers typically featured a photo of the band standing around staring at their own reflection in a puddle of water. It's not like that much anymore.
This is fun.
1 - Go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your new band or solo-act.
2 - Go to Random quotations: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your next record.
(If you want to do this again, you'll hit refresh to generate new quotes, because clicking the quotes link again will just give you the same quotes over and over again.)
3 - Go to flickr's "explore the last seven days", which is a randomly generated page of photos. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
Put it all together and see what you get.
