Courting the goat vote…

Photo

Blog Guy, with the 2012 presidential campaign now underway, I’m surprised nobody is covering the goat angle.

Yeah, many political writers handle that group with kid gloves, but not me, not with all of the candidates actively courting the goat vote.

Clues to Gaddafi’s death concealed from public view

Another man in the crowd lets out a high-pitched hysterical scream. Gaddafi then goes out of view and gunshots ring out. One of the fighters present said Gaddafi was in a bad way but alive when he was put in the ambulance.

In this article, the author uses the phrase “in a bad way” to describe Gaddafi’s status.

Yes, but recalls in general are coming too fast to count. In the past month, we’ve had stories about recalls of lettuce, candy, ice cream, pine nuts, brewers yeast tablets, prawns, soy burgers, kale chips, spinach, organic eggs, frozen tuna

The Runway’s Got Talent!

Photo

It’s the same old story, Lamar. We’ve got a major fashion show today, but we can’t afford to pay professional models. You always manage to come through with models on the cheap. Any luck?

Don’t worry, Boss, I got us a good group today, and they’re free.

UK’s Cameron rallies EU countries outside euro zone

At Wednesday’s summit, European leaders agreed a plan to provide debt relief for Greece, recapitalize European banks and boost the bloc’s rescue fund, though details have yet to be hammered out. Following a meeting of all EU members, Cameron held separate talks with some of the leaders of the 10 countries not in the euro zone; Sweden, Poland, Denmark and Czechoslovakia. ”

Your article mentions the country Czechoslovakia, which hasn’t existed for almost 20 years. I suppose the author meant Czech Republic.

According to the Associated Press, Cain said he will “dial back” his campaign and media appearances in order to avoid missteps.
