And There's Other Stuff Going On In Real News, Too
— Ace

Eh, you know the sites. Drudge, Lucianne, FoxNews, etc.

A lot of times I don't link big stories because 1, I imagine everyone knows about them, so why should I waste your time linking a story you already read? and 2, because I have nothing to add.

I mean, they rounded up nine bombing suspects in London. This is great news.

And that would be my comment: "Hey, guys, this is great news."

The suspected bomb-master has been detained in Zambia.

Again: "Hey, guys, this is really super news. I hope they hang him. That would be even more super."

So, nothing to add. Unless I could pull a Wretchard and analogize the capture of nine terrorist suspects to Darius' defense of Athens or somethin'. Which I can't. Was Darius even the king of Athens? I have no idea. So, right there, strike one.

Anyway... just letting everyone know, they're catching the terrorists. Yes, I know about it, and I'm not mentioning it because I figure you all do too.

1 Darius I, II and III ruled Persia.

2 Persia, by the way, was the arch-enemy of Athens.

You've essentially mistaken Stalin for a President of the United States. Good job.

3 Still waiting for that Oliver Willis-Japanese fembot joke, btw.

4 Xerxes then. Who can keep them straight?

I sure can't.

5 Me, a lowly Athenien? I shall crush you as the Spartans at Thermopylae.

6 Shame on you, Ace.

7 Me, a lowly Athenien? I shall crush you as the Spartans at Thermopylae.

Whatever, Xerxes. An army of 120,000 retards could have defeated that picket of 300 man-touchers faster than you.

Oh, and your navy fought like pansies at Salamis, bitch.

8 Yeah, ok, I screwed the pooch on those.

9 Of course, it looks like they could have had him earlier but refused a US request to have him arrested while he was in South Africa CNN link. I'm sure the left will say it's really our fault, that but for Guantanamo Bay or Abu Ghraib or whatever, the British Government would have agreed to arrest him earlier. More here at ThoughtsOnline

10 Just want y'all to know that no matter which side wins, Athens is gonna blow it all up in less than a century.

Which is just one more reason why you never trust democrats with national defense.

11 Never fear, I shall come to Athens defense.

12 Athenians are chumps.

13 Everyone knows that Darius is the King of the Blowfish.

Posted by: Dman at July 28, 2005 12:12 PM (m2CN7)

14 Darius was the Persian Emperor defeated by Alexander the Great which is (clears throat) an example of the 2000 years of war along the fault line between the East and the West running from the Bosporus down along the Euphrates to the Persian Gulf.

It is now time for the West to repeat the triumphs of Alexander and reclaim Constantinople, Antioch and Alexandria from the nomad sand naxis.

19 I think it's HILARIOUS. Uh oh

20 (rhythm: anapests; or, if you wanna look at it that way, iambic hexameter)

The feeble-minds who fill the board with taunts historical/

Would be more usefully employed behind a glory hole/

It's true that Athens fucked it up, the mob just got too greedy/

But still all good conservatives must not neglect the needy.

Fa fa faaaa.

21 Pardon me. That's octameter catalectic, not hexameter.

22 My man Pericles had that illegal alien problem licked. Malkin would be all over him.

23 Hyperbolus BETRAYED Athens!

24 I went to nerd camp. Trust me, this is better.

For one thing, we can't smell each other.

25 Hey, Lycurgas, you're mom's a Messenian helot.

Got a problem with that? You can have your butt-boy Cleombrotus meet me outside Leuctra after school to settle it.
