So, you're the police chief, and a mysterious sniper is running around several states randomly killing ordinary people at unpredictable times and places. What do you do? Well, the first thing you do is try not to spread panic, and a great way not to do that is by letting out messages like "Your Children Are Not Safe". Now, Chief Moose (good name, BTW) is clearly the one coming up with this stuff, but CNN is certainly stoking the fire, with quotable quotes like "However, Moose pointed out that no one is safe until the shooter is caught.". Because we don't just want you to be worried about your kids. No, we want you to be scared for your own ass as well. I think that article is probably my favourite CNN headline ever, apart from the one about snipers on golf courses.

Because I haven't posted it earlier, I'd just like to point out how great the last few days have been. Clubbing in Birmingham was great, especially when certain female members of the group decided it would be fabulous idea to enter the wet t-shirt competition, and ended up baring all to 2000 strangers. Well done, girls, your mothers would be proud. And Top B last night was amazing, for so many reasons. But now another deadline looms, so it is time to work my little socks off. But before I go, the next contestant on Ready, Set, Sue Their Asses Off is Marcomedia (thanks be to Steve for the link, and the conversation which inspired it). Macromedia have yet to release the lawyer-hounds, surprisingly.

P.S. What the fuck is going on in Iraq? Who slashes their arm and tears off their clothes at a protest?
