Monkeys Kill Mayor of Delhi

I think the monkeys were angry about domestic policy.  It's about time these monkeys stood up for what is right!  I say continue trading with countries that offer more bananas and peanuts, so that my reincarnated great grandaunt can eat and roam freely.  Trust freedom!  No need for a monkey-on-monkey crime.  This will all the more escalate monkey terrorism.  We need peace and understanding, and more bananas and peanuts!

Good gracious! It's happening!

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

When I was in New Delhi both times, monkeys were all over the place.  We are not talking about Curious George here!

I like how one of the solutions to the monkey problem is.... more monkeys.

I think they should just pipe in the kind of tunes which will lull the monkeys into a state of submission, round them up, and ship 'em out.

For music:

"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

May his memory be eternal.

I was reading in the paper this morning about another bizarre death. A Massachusetts newlywed was killed this past weekend hiking in New Hampshire. She and her new husband were sitting on a felled tree trunk when it snapped, causing them to fall off. A 20-foot section of the tree then rolled over the woman, killing her. I can't imagine what her husband is feeling right now.

It's such a reminder that we go to our doom at any time, without warning.

Bet those monkeys wouldn't appreciate how cute Davey Jones was considered by 13 yo girls way back when.
