Next up, MacCauley Culkin for President

Item 1: Any conspiracy nut worth their salt believes the Council on Foreign Relations is a nefarious organization that is secretly controlling the world. Never seemed all that secretive to me, seeing as how the conspiracy nuts could easily produce a list of all the people who were members. Secretive or not, looks like the CFR wants a little more sizzle, as Angelina Jolie is joining up.

As the newest member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Jolie will join other prestigious members such as Henry Kissinger, Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and Alan Greenspan among many others.
According to the Post report, the Council requires "no academic credentials but looks for members who take part in world affairs."
Speaking to the paper, Dr. Gordon Adams, an international-affairs professor, said "Bring her on...the idea of having Henry Kissinger and Angelina Jolie in the same organization is dazzling."
Former head of U.S. foreign-aid programs and current Council member Carol Adelman seconds the sentiment, saying,
"It's not like Paris Hilton is being nominated."

As goofy as that sounds, it is not from The Onion and I did not make it up, the source is here. They just don't make conspiracies like they used to, it's all gone Hollywood.

Item 2: In Wallingford, Washington, a suburb of Seattle, there is a store that sells dog stuff to rich people. You can buy a $2,500 dog sofa, or a $45,000 pair of dog earrings. Word is that some of the residents don't care for the name of the store - High Maintenance Bitch.

Item 3: In a tribute to the popularity of email, MySpace, IMing, texting, and whatever is next, and in response to my remark that I am more of an emailer than a talker on the phone, daughter Sarah has coined what may be her first notable catchphrase: "Typing is the new talking."

So I'll type to you later.
