Very Diplomatic

I do believe, that after causing all manner of cable-news freak outs last night and much soiling of boxer-briefs amongst the easily frightened, we have discovered the nadir (or is it the height?) of international banality:

US air marshals subdued a Qatari diplomat on a flight to Denver in a bomb scare triggered after he reportedly smoked a cigarette and then joked he was trying to ignite his shoes, officials said…

This guy apparently is an honors graduate of the John Bolton School of International Diplomacy.

Story Time Is Over



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
