This article begs the question: how would Martha Stewart have fared in Beijing? Of note is the standard means of execution practiced by the Chinese. Think they watch too many John Woo movies?

And what would they have done to this guy?

And was anyone aware that this was a problem?

It's all part of our wacky world. Props to Arnold, though; along with outlawing the buggery of corpses (an issue that unites us all), he is taking action to shore up California laws against the sale of assault weapons. Apparently there's a gun on the market called a .50 BMG. It's a rifle that shoots a .50 caliber bullet. For those you unfamiliar with bullet sizes, this is a bullet that would be fired out of a large machine gun. Perfect for blowing a hole in an enemy plane, not so much for deer hunting, unless you like your venison ground on the spot. Arnie signed a bill banning the sale of this gun in California, with others to follow. Good on ya.

This is a great story:

I'm having one of those days where it's difficult to come up with anything close to a deep thought. So I'll leave it at that.
