Two for the road

I think he fed him Alka-Seltzer. There was a flap in Boston last week when a window washer allegedly killed a seagull. He was arrested, lost his job, etc. But the real news here is that he was arrested by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which has about as much authority in my eyes as PETA. Animal cops? Are we on the Discovery Channel or something?

Always bet on black(top). There's a push in some states to privatize roads and bridges, a move the Bush administration supports. Said Transportation Secretary and Clinton-era holdover Norm Mineta: "We are like a poker game. We are inviting more people to the table and saying, 'Bring money when you come.'" Is anybody else unsettled by the analogy? Don't people go broke in poker?
