Afternoon Musings-Every one knew that Gigli was a bomb, but not that big of a bomb. Oops, that's Gilgit in the dateline. Still, one wonders if some sort of foul play is involved in the no-mans-land of NW Pakistan. Here's a cute line from the Fox piece
Construction crews frequently use explosives to clear land for roads and other projects in the mountainous area -- home to K-2, the world's second-tallest peak. The government is trying spur economic growth in the poor region and make it more accessible to tourists.
Yes, especially ones from Afghanistan and the Saudi entity. Right now, it's very inviting to the Taliban and friends. Good news and bad news for the United Methodists. The good news is one Rockford church fired a church music director for not giving up his male lover; the bad news is another Methodist church hired him. At least he's not a bishop. Yet. Futbol is back-Tampa Bay got past the Jets in the pre-season opener, 30-14. Rookie QB Chris Sims looked good in the second half. That's at least four second-generation QBs that I can think of. Jack Kemp's son Jeff got some NFL time about a decade ago, not to mention Brian Griese and Payton Manning. Any others I haven't remembered? You might count Marquis Tuiasosopo, but his dad was a defensive lineman. Two great old-school tongue-tripping NFL Polynesian names: Mosi Tatupu and Manu Tuiasosopo.
