Tests conducted after Senator Teddy Kennedy suffered a seizure this past weekend reveal he has a tumor in his left parietal lobe. After it was biopsied it was identified as a malignant glioma.

The Pope should be interested in this article.
They used to say girls were sucking guys off left and right just so the girls could remain virgins. Now that hard data have been analyzed, the truth is far less tantalizing. It looks like kids are still doing pretty much the same stuff we did as kids.
A Debunking on Teenagers and ‘Technical Virginity’
Researchers Find That Oral Sex Isn’t Commonplace Among Young People Who Avoid Intercourse
by Rob Stein | The Washington Post
Contrary to widespread belief, teenagers do not appear to commonly engage in oral sex as a way to preserve their virginity, according to the first study to examine the question nationally. The analysis of a federal survey of more than 2,200 males and females aged 15 to 19, released yesterday, found that more than half reported having had oral sex. But those who described themselves as virgins were far less likely to say they had tried it than those who had had intercourse. (more…)
Some people are saying, “If Bush were a real friend of Israel, he would have skipped this trip to Israel.” I disagree.
I’m glad Bush decided to go. Who cares? Olmerts come and go. Meanwhile, Israel, America and the free world need to stay close and to converse at the highest levels, and with the honchos who are in the know. There are messages only Bush can convey personally. Messages that must come only from his lips. Israel’s commanders need to be there when Bush says what he’s gonna to say. In private, where no one else can hear.
Bush has a message.
Get the message?
To One and All:
TMQ2 wishes all of you a Happy Mothers Day. That includes all you Arab mothers, and all you Persian motherfuckers. And should there actually be a peace-loving, jihad-hating, righteous one among you, we especially wish you and yours a Happy Mothers Day too.
Bush and Blair clowning at Jena’s wedding rehearsal
Imagine a billion blows to your head.
Your back filled solid with knives, the holes having holes. Your name, cursed more than God or the Devil.
You are called a liar, by liars, witting or unwitting, day in and day out for 7 seven years. Before you even speak, indecent lies are started. Yale and Harvard aside, when you rise to speak, YOU MIGHT SOUND RETARDED.
Could you stand it and still comfort a wounded soldier or consol a grieved family? Could you carry on with your job as leader of The Free World with the weight of a billion blows? Or would you crawl up into a ball and cry like a baby before you expire?
Yesterday, President Bush married off his daughter Jena. I pray, in the bosom of his family, he will find some joy in this.
That he can still walk around after being stabbed in the back so many times is as miraculous as John McCain walking out of the Hanoi Hilton, triumphantly. That he can get one or two words out at all, with the level of hate against him coming from ungrateful arrogant fools, is no small feat.
There is no need now to say you or I don’t always agree with the president. The need now is to say our president is a strong and honorable man, and to share in the joy of a proud and loving father.
Fairness, Idealism and Other Atrocities
Well, here you are at your college graduation. And I know what you’re thinking: “Gimme the sheepskin and get me outta here!” But not so fast. First you have to listen to a commencement speech.
Don’t moan. I’m not going to “pass the wisdom of one generation down to the next.” I’m a member of the 1960s generation. We didn’t have any wisdom.
We were the moron generation. We were the generation that believed we could stop the Vietnam War by growing our hair long and dressing like circus clowns. We believed drugs would change everything — which they did, for John Belushi. We believed in free love. Yes, the love was free, but we paid a high price for the sex.
My generation spoiled everything for you. (more…)
Incredible! This you’re not gonna believe…the longer it goes, the better it gets. One of the things you will learn — How to change a tire while the car is still driving. Best driving I ever saw. No tricks…just incredible driving.
Update on the state of United States readiness in Gulf
MEXICO CITY: The deployment of a second aircraft-carrier to the Gulf should be seen as a “reminder” of US military power in the region, Defence Secretary Robert Gates said. However, he denied that Washington was preparing the ground for military strikes against Iran. (more…)
Can you believe Obama says it’s time for a change and he thinks he’s the change we need?
After equivocating and dancing around and side-stepping about who he is, what he stands for, what he believes, Obama, who more than any other presidential candidate has proven he is unbelievably afraid to tell the truth said, “We need leaders who aren’t afraid to speak the truth,” to nearly 13,000 gathered in Indiana.
What a loser.
Hamas says Jews planned the Holocaust! There’s nothing they won’t stoop to.
Read what these ignorant goat-humpers are spewing:
One Last Request
Dan Rather (former CBS news anchor, for those reading this, who are outside North America), Katie Couric (current CBS news anchor), and an Israeli sergeant were all captured by terrorists in Iraq. The leader of the terrorists told them that he would grant them each one last request before they were beheaded.
Dan Rather said, “Well, I’m a Texan, so I’d like one last bowlful of hot spicy chili.”
The leader nodded to an underling who left and returned with the chili.
Rather ate it all and said, “Now I can die content.”
Katie Couric said, “I’m a reporter to the end. I want to take out my tape recorder and describe the scene here and what’s about to happen. Maybe someday someone will hear it and know that I was on the job till the end.”
The leader directed an aide to hand over the tape recorder and Couric dictated some comments. She then said, “Now I can die happy.”
The leader turned and said, “And now, Mr. Israeli tough guy, what is your final wish?” “Please, kick me in the ass,” said the soldier.
“What?” asked the leader. “Will you mock us in your last hour?”
“No, I’m not kidding. I want you to really kick me in the ass,” insisted the Israeli.
So the leader shoved him into the open and kicked him in the ass.
The soldier went sprawling, but rolled to his knees, pulled a 9 mm pistol from under his flak jacket, and shot the leader dead. In the resulting confusion, he jumped to his knapsack, pulled out his carbine and sprayed the terrorists with gunfire. In a flash, all terrorists were either dead or fleeing for their lives.
As the soldier was untying Rather and Couric, they asked him, “Why didn’t you just shoot them in the beginning? Why did you ask them to kick you in the ass first?”
“What?” replied the Israeli, “And have you two assholes report that I was the aggressor?”

Who created Spiderman, Superman and Batman?
Or at least co-created them, along with the Amazing Hulk and countless (actually I could count them but am too lazy) other comic book characters that are now American icons? Stan Lee who was born Stanley Martin Lieber did. Rather than being just a name, Stan Lee was a real person. And through his creations he will live forever. That’s my excuse for posting an article that’s already over a year old.
Stan Lee Charms New York
by Peter Sanderson, PW Comics Week — Publishers Weekly, 2/27/2007
When Marvel editor in chief Joe Quesada introduced guest of honor Stan Lee at the New York Comic-Con on Friday, fans armed with flash cameras surged toward the stage. Who there wouldn’t want a picture of Marvel’s editor and principal writer in the 1960s, who cocreated Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men, among many others? But the show organizers obviously hadn’t anticipated the need for crowd control. (more…)
His mother’s brother was half of the Gallagher and Shean vaudeville act. His father’s nickname was “Frenchie.” His eldest brother was Leonard. He also had a brother Milton and a brother Adolph. His name was Julius.
He starred with his brothers on Broadway. They went on to Hollywood and made movies. Big hits. He continued his career which was already going strong for over 50 years with another 11 years on TV.
Who was he?
Need another hint? He and his brothers performed in many variations of “Fun In Hi Skule” for over seven years.
He performed with a German accent until the Germans sank the Lusitania. Then audiences booed so he changed his character to a fast-talking wise-guy.
Still wondering who he was? Here’s your last hint, most people called his brothers Harpo, Chico, Gummo and Zeppo.
Sam Wood, the director of the film A Night at the Opera was furious with the Marx Brothers’ ad-libs and antics on the set and yelled to all in disgust that it’s impossible to “make actors out of clay.” Without missing a beat, Groucho responded, “Nor can you make a director out of Wood.”
The tree species used for the wood in the construction of the First Temple in Jerusalem was the Cedar of Lebanon (Cedrus libani). The species grew in Israel, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey. Now most of the best wild stands are in out-of-the-way places in Turkey. When wood was at a premium, Solomon actually traded part of northern Israel for the rights to log the cedars in part of Lebanon. If Solomon hadn’t made that trade, Israel might not be contending with Hezbollah fighting from lands that were owned by Israel. (more…)
KINSHASA – Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men’s penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.
Reports of so-called penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, where belief in traditional religions and witchcraft remains widespread, and where ritual killings to obtain blood or body parts still occur. (more…)
Garbology was a word invented by AJ Weberman to describe his study of Bob Dylan’s trash.
Its primary academic meaning now is the study of refuse and trash. It is an academic discipline and has a major outpost at the University of Arizona long directed by William Rathje. The project started in 1971, originating from an idea of two students for a class project. It is a major source of information on the nature and changing patterns in modern refuse. Industries wishing to demonstrate that discards originating with their products are (or are not) important in the trash stream are avid followers of this research, as are municipalities wishing to learn whether some parts of the trash they collect has any salable value.

Jews Who Made it Big
Talking about Jews who made it big, did you know Harry Reems is Jewish? His real name is Herbert Streicher. I mention this only to prove that Jews are well endowed in many ways beyond those most people think about. Just thought you might be interested.

Woody Allen was Allen Konigsberg; Lauren Bacall was Betty Joan Persek; Jack Benny was Benjamin Kubelsky; Milton Berle was Milton Berlinger; Joey Bishop was Joey Gottlieb; Mel Brooks was Melvin Kaminsky; Lenny Bruce was Leonard Alfred Schneider; George Burns was Nathan Birnbaum; Kitty Carlisle was Catherine Holzman; Howard Cosell was Howard Cohen; Tony Curtis was Bernard Schwartz; Kirk Douglas was Issur Danilovich Demsky; Bob Dylan was Robert Zimmerman; Samuel Goldwyn was Samuel Goldfish; Buddy Hackett was Leonard Hacker; Harry Houdini was Ehrich Weiss; Al Jolson was Asa Yoelson; Danny Kaye was Daniel Kaminsky; Alan King was Irwin Kniberg; Jerry Lewis was Joseph Levitch; Peter Lorre was Laszlo Loewenstein; Tony Randall was Leonard Rosenberg; Joan Rivers was Joan Molinsky, Edward G.

I’d like to add, (more…)
