Baby On Board!

No, I'm not pregnant. Here's an interesting take on the whole "unborn baby is still a person" theory. A woman in Mesa was ticketed for driving alone in the carpool lane. When the officer pulled her over she responded that she was pregnant and that there wasn't any difference if the baby was born or not. Of course, the officer didn't buy it and wrote her a ticket. She's going to court to fight the ticket presumably arguing that her womb is really a car seat. Will the Right to Life Movement be representing her in court?

On the natural disaster front, tornadoes have ripped their way through Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, and southern Illinois. Is God punishing those states for listening to Pat Robertson? (Clarification: Of course not! But funny how the crazy fundamentalists conveniently ignore the weather patterns that don't fit their wacko world views...)
