Scorpion

Sunday is Newz Day

yesterday was a lot of catching up on shows on tape (Scrubs, Smallville and The Shield.) (Whoah, all "S" shows.) Also, an abortive attempt at painting some Skaven interrupted by a certain crying bebe. And, we saw Ali G and it was awesome. He interviewed James Baker!

As it turns out, Batman and Robin wasn't that good a movie. I mean, I don't know where to begin in how terrible it actually was. I could attack it from being a bad movie, craft-wise. I could point out the extreme injustices to the source material, and the wasted potential. However, I don't think anyone here needs convincing. Man, it wasn't even funny-bad. But, I am glad I saw it for myself.

Top of the news, SARS. The disease has now killed the scientist who identified it. Other scientists question how large the epidemic will grow. Especially considering no drugs are effective against it.

And following yesterday's trend of under-reported news updates, the Haliburton unit didn't get one of the big contracts for rebuilding in Iraq.
