- Reports from the Associated Press last week indicated that Iran's "morality" police were cracking down on the sale of Barbie dolls, closing some toy stores that carried the Western icon on their shelves amid concerns that the statuesque blonde doll would cause great harm to the impressionable youth of Iran. Investigators from SACSTW's Tehran bureau are looking into reports that the Barbie dolls are being replaced by Michael Moore inaction figures. No mention is being made of Iran's morality police cracking down on state-sponsored incineration of innocent men, women, and children. At least they have their priorities straight. Interestingly, the AP reports don't mention Ken.....I'm just saying.

Rescued after a cat attack by Shyla Mouton, Winkelhimer has been painting ever since. His Facebook page has 534 fans as of this writing, only 530 more than the SACSTW page. Hint, hint SACSTW readers..... Here is a video of the rodent Rembrandt at work:
- As I write this, Billy Cundiff of the Baltimore Ravens has missed a game-tying 32 yard field goal at the end of the AFC championship game, sending the New England Patriots to the Super Bowl. Never, never, never pin your post-season hopes on a kicker.
