- From the "We Didn't Really Think This Through" Department: Animal rights activists from Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) planned to document a South Carolina pigeon shoot by filming it from a remotely controlled micro helicopter. Hmmm, harassing hunters with a small flying object. When participants in the pigeon shoot heard about the plans, the event quickly morphed into a "micro-helicopter shoot". Shortly after SHARK launched their drone, it was blasted out of the sky by numerous shotgun rounds. By the way, is SHARK really the best acronym for a group concerned about treating animals with respect and kindness?
- More fun animal news.... Remember the spotted owl? It was the original darling of the enviro-animal rights-down with industry whack jobs back in the 80's. The Obama administration has developed a new plan to save the spotted owl.....by killing all the other owls. It seems that more aggressive barred owls are displacing their spotted cousins from their preferred environment. The feds have decided to gun down barred owls over the next few years in another attempt to save the spotted owl. It seems that (with apologies to Mr. Orwell) all owls are equal, but some owls are more equal than others.

- A quick report on the Crew's congressman, the odious Emanuel Cleaver. The former Kansas City mayor turned U.S. Congressman (and chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus by the way) is being sued by Bank of America for defaulting on a 1.5 million dollar loan on a carwash business in the Kansas City area. Just another notch in Manny's long history of questionable financial dealings. The kicker here is that you and I are on the hook for the bill. The carwash loan has an SBA guarantee, meaning the US taxpayer will foot 75% of the bill. Shockingly, the congressman has had no comment on the issue.
- To continue the animal theme today (hey, I just spent the weekend out in the woods), have you heard that Alicia Silverstone is supplementing her fading movie career by opening a daycare operation in her home? SACSTW has obtained video of lunchtime........
