I wonder what MJ was contemplating? Perhaps he thought, “Now that’s off the wall”. Or maybe twas “This guy sure can jump high from a squat!”.
But I’m pretty sure it wasn’t: “Why does the TOI print such drivel?”
Reiterating that the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras director M S Ananth’s appointment to the post for a second term would be subject to the outcome of a writ petition against him, the Madras high court has asked a single judge to hear and dispose of the matter in two months.
A former student of the IIT-M, E Muralidharan had filed the quo warranto writ petition, seeking to know on what authority the director was holding the post. He alleged that there were irregularities in the appointment.
What’s going on? I suspect there’s a deeper issue here…
Here’s the Miss Teen USA candidate, Mrs Vice President USA candidate.
COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? Allow them to spend more, and put more money into the economy, instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?
PALIN: That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, we’re ill about this position that we have been put in. Where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it’s got to be about job creation, too. Shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade — we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation.
Here’s John McCain on Sarah Palin in a recent interview.
She knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America.
But wait…there’s more!
And, uh, she also happens to represent, be governor of a state that’s right next to Russia. She understands Russia.
Ah, the first signs of senile dementia? Proximity knowledge is pretty basic stuff.
Turns out, she ACTUALLY BELIEVES that proximity to Russia gives her foreign policy experience!! What is this, Monty Python?
A day after Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray was condemned for suggesting that “Hindu suicide squads” should make powerful bombs to target “mini Pakistans” in India, the students wing of the party defended his stand and went a step further, saying they would not mind being called “terrorists” if bombing anti-nationals was terrorism.
“Yes, we are terrorists! If protecting the country is terrorism. If killing traitors is terrorism. If bombing those who criticise the nation, the motherland and the religion is terrorism. If fighting terrorism with might is terrorism. Then we are proud to be terrorists,” the posters said.
One of my old friends, who I hadn’t contacted for quite some time, wanted to know why I had sent him a facebook invite to attend a Rolling Stone and BAC tribute concert.
What..? I hadn’t done anything like that! After profusely apologizing for the spam, I asked him to forward me a copy of the mail.

I’m extremly annoyed.
It could be that someone hacked into my account to send the invite, but I don’t think that’s likely, cause I can still access my account. Anyway, off I go to delete my facebook account.
