[Or: “Make It So, Number One!”]
Olivia Wilde, Bono and Richard Branson, all celebrities flush with fame, announce they are joining Matt Damon’s toilet strike to raise awareness about the global water crisis.
…the trio draws attention to just how serious the water situation is by presenting some disturbing statistics:
“780 million people, that’s one in nine, lacks access to safe water,” Bono says.
Which is why Damon co-founded Water.org — in collaboration with Gary White — in an effort to help come up with solutions to the water crisis so that all people have access to safe water and sanitation.
Thus far, the organization has helped more than 1 million people living in Africa, South Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. And it’s Damon’s passion and success that drew Wilde to the movement (or lack of movement, if you catch my drift).
Maybe they should go (heh) to Venezuela next.
Didn’t The Kids In The Hall once do a skit like this?
In other news, Ke$ha drinks her own urine.
From here –
As the nation’s chief executive, President Obama is accountable for the IRS, State Department and Justice Department. His longtime adviser David Axelrod last week blamed a too-big government for the scandals: “Part of being president is that there’s so much beneath you that you can’t know because the government is so vast.”
No conservative or libertarian could ever have made such a concise, elegant, and bulletproof condemnation of Big Government than this. It’s an unintentional flat-out admission that government has grown so large that light can only be shone on some small part of it at a time, not only making it easy for corruption and abuse to occur in its enormous shadow, but practically providing incentives to do so. Who will know? How many abuses slip by for every one that is caught? And even when someone is busted, they get a slap on the wrist and scurry off to some other area in the darkness and start all over.
A tip from Captain Capitalism –
If you don’t know precisely what they do, don’t worry, it is a very specialized service, namely air ambulance. So say you are out on vacation, snow birding down south, or for whatever reason you or a loved one needs to get transported to a specialist in some other hospital in quick order Express Air Medical will fly you out there.
They are based in Florida but serve the entire United States. And don’t wait for an emergency to happen, you might as well put their number in your cell phone now because putzing around looking for it on ole Cappy Cap’s site will take too long.

*And beating them at their own game.
As some of you know by now, Allamagoosa and I are going to be married. We met through Sunshine Mary, got a nudge or two* from 7man and CL, and from there the dominoes just kept falling over. So much so that it seemed like someone somewhere was planning it.
The joke between us is that we’re so, uh, unique that no one else could deal with us. This is a only-slightly-exaggerated example –
If you’re coming to the wedding, bring kevlar and a dessert.
*”Nudge” meaning “go for it, dumb@$$!”
