Three men indicted for torturing and killing 20 or more cats.
See, the penalties for this sort of thing are not nearly stiff enough. Even if you has no sympathies for animals, the fact remains that if one is capable of doing this sort of thing to an animal, they *are* capable, and likely willing, to do the same to human beings. Eventually, cats would cease to be enough of a thrill, and they'd move on to something else. Something bigger. Nothing big enough to fight back much, of course, as these sorts of people are godsdamned cowards- notice that they don't pick fights with lumberjacks or try and torture bears- and instead they'd probably move to something a little easier to handle. Like children.

"Part of the problem is one of vocabulary: the word “marriage” has been dual-purposed to refer to both sacramental marriage as a religious practice, and civil marriage under our body of secular laws. Many religious conservatives fear that granting civil marriage rights to same-sex couples would somehow infringe on their rights to keep sacramental marriage in accordance with their beliefs. This is absolutely untrue. Our separation of church and state guarantees that the government cannot force a church to conduct same-sex marriages. Religious conservatives will be able to continue to restrict their sacramental marriages to whomever they feel qualifies. But conversely, religions cannot rightly restrict who can qualify for civil marriage, nor should they seek to do so, if they truly value our American way of life."
Absolutely. Why can't more people be this sensible?

DEVOtional 2008 Pics
...Finally, and as promised. The actual photos are huge; as always, people with dialup should probably not apply.
The Owlvark with a can of Moxie, courtesy of Professor VonMarko.
The Spudboys, as awesome as ever (I swear they get better every year)
The Mutant Mountain Boys, getting ready to rock post-apocalyptic-Appalachian-style.
Poopy Necroponde, in the middle of their set. You'll have to wait for the official video to hear how hilarious/clever they are...
Jerry and Mark during the live chat with DEVO (not a bad photo, considering I was taking a picture of a projection...)
Al gets her picture taken (I bought Byron Werner's dome from the Jocko Dome-O charity sale, and they wanted a pic of it for him.)
