RIP Lily Munsters (aka Yvonne De Carlo)

I was a big fan of the Munsters as a kid. I don't suppose this will stop all the other 'Lily Munsters' hitting the goth though - so at least that's a bit of good news.

I was also interested to read a bit more of her background in the BBC news article covering her death. I never knew she's been a fairly high prfile film actress and beauty queen in the 40's and 50's!

US Troops Storm Iranian Consulate

The stupidity should not actually surprise anyone anymore. Still, what f**kwit decided it was a good idea for the US to storm the Iranian Consulate in Iraq?

That's exactly what the region needs? Oh, sorry, no that's exactly what Bush needed for his keynote seech he delivered a few hours later to help back up his plans to send another 21,000 Americans to Iraq.
