“The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."

Alistair Cooke's bones 'stolen'

Alistair Cooke was mourned on both sides of the AtlanticAn investigation is under way in New York into allegations that the bones of the late broadcaster Alistair Cooke were stolen before his cremation.

Cooke, known for the Letter from America he broadcast for the BBC, died almost two years ago, aged 95.

According to the New York Daily News his bones were stolen by a criminal ring trading body parts.

They were later sold by a biomedical tissue company now under investigation, the paper claims.
When Cooke died of lung cancer that spread to his bones in March 2004, his body was taken to a funeral home in Manhattan.

Two days later, relatives of the iconic broadcaster received his ashes, which were then scattered in New York's Central Park.

I feel so sorry for his family - but even sorrier for the poor bastards who never watched the show, but are now walking around humming the theme to "Masterpiece Theatre".

Pork Chop Bet On The Wrong Hearse

Everyone's heard the one about the man who murders his parents and then throws himself on the mercy of the court because he is an orphan.

I was reminded of that story when I read today's post from a "holier than thou" regular on Delicious Demon. He bemoans the lamentably low level of wit, intelligence and refinement - not to mention common decency - on the message board. Ah, for the good old days!

Just as I predicted he would, it was the Resident Pedant, Official Berater and Unofficial Disturbed Person who destroyed this board by driving away all the interesting posters. Notice I'm not naming names here. Fuck, it's still January! I take my New Year's Resolutions very seriously.

As I explained to Pork Chop, I need to be around smarter people. His message board has become a crude and unfunny joke. The remaining hardcore posters deserve each other --- with the exception of Popsicle and Father Hubert. They deserve better. Like me, Howard A. Dog probably found some smarter (and nicer) people to hang out with. He was funny, smart and nice. I miss him and wish him well.
