I was not alive 50 years ago. I wasn’t even conceived yet. Therefore I bring you a repost of an item on JFK from 2009. Oddly enough, I was reading today about Nevada in the 1960s. Some of the people mentioned included John Kennedy, his brother Robert (Attorney General and keen on stamping out the [...]
Slimming Meatloaf? I figured this fellow went on a diet. Let me save you $1.79, the secret miracle fat loss ingredient that will only help your meatloaf lose fat is mushrooms. Specifically Shiitake mushrooms.
The Tall Shop? Boy are they barking up the wrong tree! Anyway, Shorties. Let’s not forget about these guys: FISA, NSA, privacy, cracked crypto, due process, hearings designed to make the people feel all warm and fussy fuzzy (sometimes typos are funny) about something being done even though nobody in a position of authority is even [...]
A couple years ago, I mentioned the Sea Stone wait I mean Hotel Baja California Restaurant. Guess what? It closed. The rather expensive building sat vacant for a while before displaying a new banner: “Coming Soon! Boca Park Animal Hospital.” Another expensive build ensued. I found this rather curious. Repurposing serially failed restaurant space with [...]
Exactly 10 years ago today, the second post ever on ShortWoman.com was about the Supreme Court. On that auspicious occasion, they struck down a Texas law on “deviant” (read, GAY) sex.

I Would Watch That!: I have been given permission to share my son’s brilliant idea for a new TV show: he calls it “Law and Order and Batman.” Dumbasses: There are plenty of vegan parents out there who manage not to starve their babies to death. Leia: 20 facts, 20 pictures, one princess. Startling: The amount [...]
Hey Kanye: Imma let you finish, but “Isotoner” doesn’t rhyme with “told you.” In Closing: I really, really wanted to say something about austerity last week and it didn’t happen (how could they have looked at this chart and not suspected an error??); this only works if every single person has a fully charged smart [...]
It’s the only day of the year that gives a command. In closing: the eternal burger; so much for saving lives; there are nun none; that’s a thought; Monster begs for science; shock doctrine; must be nice.
Hey dear, let me tell you why you’re never going to lose that 10 to 20 pounds around your hips and waist and why your hubby is never going to lose the gut unless you change your ways. I’m not going to put all the blame on the expensive whole wheat crap that you think is [...]
In Closing: That would be bad; Googlegator; Japan Crush; Rolling Jubilee gets more press; the last cooler than average month was during the Reagan Administration (maybe hell froze over when he compromised with Democrats or raised taxes?); Lost Decade, American Style; Forbes and USA Today disagree on the buyer, but agree that somebody will [...]
