Johnslist

The next few days could be interesting in Washington as a federal judge just lifted the restraining order preventing the “DC Madam” for releasing her list of 15,000 clients.

Iran Launches English-Language
Web TV Channel

Iran has launched an English-language 24-hour news channel called Press TV, which with al-Jazeera should satisfy all your anti-American propaganda needs.

I had a great time day tripping out to Fire Island for the Pines Invasion with Little David yesterday and I’ll post more photos of the insanity after I sort through the pile.
