"It's this generation's 'Dating Game,' but with a twist -- it aims to show love knows no borders," Martinez told Reuters.
As in the "Dating Game," which ran on network TV for more than two decades starting in the 1960s, a single U.S. citizen gets to ask contestants various questions. Toward the end of the show, he or she decides which one to select as a potential mate.
It might be the game for me being as American women are very hard to date or just not worth dating.
DES MOINES – All of presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s Iowa campaign offices are closed. The decision comes after a hostage situation at an office in New Hampshire.So what happens if Hillary wins and then a terrorist shows up? Will she shut down the federal government in fear that someone might get hurt? Might be a good thing if she does get elected and shut the government down. At least then she'd be keeping her fellow liberals from screwing us over!
Police have gathered at a nearby church and set up a command post there. SWAT teams and the State Police bomb squad are also on scene.What I don't understand is why isn't Hillary demanding seperation of church and state?
Congratulations, you over-heated gasbag. The Anti-American Award (a.k.a the Nobel Peace Prize) goes to yet another Democratic demagogue bent on abusing America's character.
NFL security confiscated a video camera and tape from a Patriots employee during New England's 38-14 victory Sunday. The employee was accused of aiming his camera at the Jets' defensive coaches as they signaled to players on the field.I'm sure the NFL will let them off with just a slap on the wrist, because, hey, they are the Patriots.
Last season, the Green Bay Packers had an issue with a man wearing a Patriots staff credential who was carrying a video camera on their sideline.
"The rule is that no video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches' booth, on the field, or in the locker room during the game," the league said Monday in a statement from spokesman Greg Aiello. "Clubs have specifically been reminded in the past that the videotaping of an opponent's offensive or defensive signals on the sidelines is prohibited.
When the assault victim launched into Coldplay's "Yellow," Lawrence allegedly told the man that his "singing sucked" and that the song "f****** sucked." She then grabbed at the man's microphone and "pushed him and punched him in order to get him to stop singing," cops reported.Crappy music has that effect on people you know...
It is unclear why Coldplay's music apparently made Lawrence snap, though a famous June 2005 New York Times appraisal by Jon Pareles may offer an insight. The critic called the British group "the most insufferable band of the decade," adding that, "the lyrics can make me wish I didn't understand English."Unclear?!?!? I think Mr. Pareles nailed it. Crap Play is an insufferable band. Icky. Yucky. Sucky.
In his new book, The Assault on Reason, Al Gore pleads, "We must stop tolerating the rejection and distortion of science. We must insist on an end to the cynical use of pseudo-studies known to be false for the purpose of intentionally clouding the public's ability to discern the truth." Gore repeatedly asks that science and reason displace cynical political posturing as the central focus of public discourse.Don't you just hate it when someone brings the proverbial gun, in the form of facts, to the knife fight?
If Gore really means what he writes, he has an opportunity to make a difference by leading by example on the issue of global warming.
A cooperative and productive discussion of global warming must be open and honest regarding the science. Global warming threats ought to be studied and mitigated, and they should not be deliberately exaggerated as a means of building support for a desired political position.
Many of the assertions Gore makes in his movie, ''An Inconvenient Truth,'' have been refuted by science, both before and after he made them. Gore can show sincerity in his plea for scientific honesty by publicly acknowledging where science has rebutted his claims.
For example, Gore claims that Himalayan glaciers are shrinking and global warming is to blame. Yet the September 2006 issue of the American Meteorological Society's Journal of Climate reported, "Glaciers are growing in the Himalayan Mountains, confounding global warming alarmists who recently claimed the glaciers were shrinking and that global warming was to blame."

OBAMA PHOTO CAUSES CONTROVERSY
Mon Apr 09 2007 14:39:38 ET
It's being called the equivalent of a paparazzi gotcha:
A snapshot of Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) and his chief political/media adviser David Axelrod -- taken in the Senator’s Capitol Hill office!
ROLL CALL reports: Congressional ethics rules forbid the use of federal office space for political and campaign activity.
A spokeswoman for the Obama camp declined comment to the paper.
Obama and Axelrod are old buddies whose relationship dates back years and they could have been having an innocuous conversation, one strategist noted. But it does raise some flags, which is the last thing a contender in a competitive race with a polished, practiced vet such as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) wants to do. “It could be seen as a rookie mistake,” the consultant said.
ROLL CALL's Emily Heil jabs: And as any Hollywood star or starlet could tell you, if you’re going to make a mistake, make sure there aren’t any cameras around.
I would much rather have a NHL team, say the Penguins, than one of those National Brawl-ball Association thug teams. Hockey is far more exciting than thug-ball and I will support a hockey team, even if it's not the Penguins.
PITTSBURGH -- The Penguins moved a step closer to leaving Pittsburgh, declaring on Monday an impasse in their new arena negotiations with state and local leaders and saying they will actively pursue relocation.The breakdown in arena talks came only three days after Gov. Ed Rendell said he felt an agreement was close. It also increases the possibility the Penguins will be playing in Kansas City next season.
Kansas City has offered its nearly completed Sprint Center to the Penguins rent-free. The Penguins would also gain revenue from development projects around the arena.
Foxtrot rox my sox off!
In riaa boycott
Anti-RIAA rhetoric has officially made it to the mainstream. Fans of the funnypages probably noticed that FoxTrot's humor was both topical and nerdy this week, which makes it one bad pun away from the newspaper comic trifecta. But hey, we love seeing the RIAA getting taken down a peg in front of people who don't follow this sort of thing on their own.
