Just got this email from the UWPD....

Timely Warning Notification of a Criminal Incident
Robbery - Seattle Campus

On March 27, 2009, at approximately 2:35 p.m., a male UW student was walking near N.E. 41st Street and Brooklyn Ave N.E. talking on his I-phone, when he was approached by four male suspects and two female suspects who initially walked past the victim. Two of the male suspects then approached the victim from behind and one of them grabbed the victim's I-phone while the other began striking the victim in the face. After stealing the I-phone, the suspects ran northbound on Brooklyn Avenue then westbound on N.E. 42nd Street.

At 2:30 in the afternoon? This is where tiki walks every afternoon! And, it's not even near the dodgy end of the Ave.

Here's what really irks:

Prevention tips for incidents such as this:
* Be aware of your environment and alert for possible danger.
* Remove yourself from potentially dangerous situations as soon as possible.
* Walk with a group.
* Call 911 to report suspicious activity or persons to the police.
* Call Husky NightWalk: 206-685-WALK (9255) for a security guard escort to various locations on campus and within a one-mile radius off campus. The hours of operation for these uniformed guards are 6:00pm-2:00am, 7 days week.

Walk in a group? At 2:30 in the afternoon???

W. Va. lawmaker wants to ban sale of Barbie dolls

Democratic Delegate Jeff Eldridge is proposing to ban the sale of the Mattel doll and others like her in West Virginia.

He says the dolls influence girls to place too much importance on physical beauty, at the expense of their intellectual and emotional development.

Because in today's world, Barbie is the most important issue!!!! tiki plans to celebrate this end to sexism by going to Hooters yay!

Hey, President Obama action figure! Were you out smoking in the Rose Garden with EuroStitch again???

"No!!! We were so totally not smoking in the Rose Garden! We were discussing super important international stuff."

Because, we need your attention on this new rainforest legislation we're sponsoring!

"Er, yeah, I meant to talk to you about that."

You wanna save the Amazon rainforest, right?

"Yeah, but...."

Don't you like the Amazon rainforest?

"The title of your legislation is 'Plan to Save the Amazon Rainforest by Importing All the Cute and Fuzzy Baby Animals Who Live There to Come Live in the White House with the Obama Family.'"

We discussed it with Sasha and Malia first! They are so totally in favor of it!

Actually, around here, we have people who will park their cart in the aisle and stand and read those labels. It's like they've never been to a grocery store before in their lives or something.

Ginsburg is hospitalized with pancreatic cancer

WASHINGTON – Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had surgery Thursday after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the court said.

Ginsburg, 75, had the surgery at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. She will remain in the hospital for seven to 10 days, said her surgeon, Dr. Murray Brennan, according to a release issued by the court.

The court announcement said the cancer is apparently in the early stages.

Hope she'll be ok. This kind of cancer is nasty. tiki is a total Supreme Court fangirl.

Premarital Abstinence Pledges Ineffective, Study Finds

Teenagers who pledge to remain virgins until marriage are just as likely to have premarital sex as those who do not promise abstinence and are significantly less likely to use condoms and other forms of birth control when they do, according to a study released today.

"Hey, I know, we'll just tell kids to quit having sex! Yeah, that'll work! We are so SMRT."

More from PZ:

The study also found that, five years after taking a virginity pledge, more than 80 percent of pledgers denied ever making such a promise.

Abstinence education evidently interferes with long-term memory formation. Fascinating.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Vice President Al Gore is set to meet with President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden Tuesday, leading to speculation Obama is eyeing Gore for a slot in his administration.

He will get us WiFi that works! And also rescue cute baby polar bears.

We found this article kinda fascinating:

"Evangelical teen-agers are more sexually active than Mormons, mainline Protestants, and Jews. On average, white evangelical Protestants make their "sexual début"--to use the festive term of social-science researchers--shortly after turning sixteen. Among major religious groups, only black Protestants begin having sex earlier."

tiki's parents are from a rural town in a reddy-red State. And, as the article states, most people got knocked up in high school, kept the kid, and went on to successful careers as professional alcoholics.

Ganked from damn near everybody, but WTF, it made us smile.

We think these are at least some of the same actors.

Look! We did a really good job parallel parking the tiki car this morning! See? And, close to the curb.

OK, so maybe our life isn't terribly exciting at present. But, we did help bail out Wall Street! Hey, you ungrateful Wall Street weasels, we sure hope you appreciate this when it's bathtime and tiki shows up to use your solid gold bath tub that you bought with your ill-gotten gains to go with the $7,000 shower curtain. We're bringing our rubber duckie!!!

[Former Mayor of Wasilla John] Stein says that as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. "She asked the library how she could go about banning books," he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. "The librarian was aghast."
