In This Month's Issue of "Brain-Dead Reality TV Watcher" Magazine...

Toddlers who witnessed a brutal attack on their city by shadowy enemies in 2001 may suffer from behavioral problems afterwards.

Wow. You're kidding. Seeing a real-life nightmare that even panics your parents will make you act out? Say it ain't so.

Seriously, who funds these studies? And why did they feel they needed a study to prove this link?

And what's next: tornadoes may cause damage?

This is just like that study we always read about in psych class about the guy who had a railroad spike go through his head and afterwards, he was much more irritable. Imagine...

To completely go off subject:

How were the Chicago polls today? Busier than in Wheaton, I hope. Sigh, I miss Chicago elections.

Stephen: I heard about that guy, too, but never heard about his disposition afterwards. It makes sense, though--my babysitter's brother had a metal plate in his head (from Korea, I think) and he was one cranky son-of-a-bitch.

Sarah: I haven't been to the polls yet--I'm going after work (I was in a hurry this morning, plus this gives me an excuse to leave about 15 minutes early this afternoon. :-))

This just in from a straight friend of mine: How are Women and Tornadoes alike? They both moan when they come and take the house when they go.
It has been raining here for two days and I'm getting so tired of emptying the buckets in my kitchen. I've heard that at times it rains men but so far I've not found any. haha Ed

I've never seen "man precipitation" either, Ed. I think it's a myth.
