This how they should handle cheating in baseball

STLtoday - News - Missouri State News

Jones, 60, is an avid angler. A divorcé with no family nearby, he sometimes stayed at the shop for hours. He had friends here. So when he placed second in a fishing tournament two weeks ago, the regulars expected he would show up the next morning to crow about it, just as he did after a win the week before.

But his moment of triumph — his trophy plaque and $886 — was the one that got away. He left the winner's circle that day in handcuffs, facing a felony count of theft by deception. Fishermen at the boat ramp cheered his arrest. Others were moved to anger. Fishermen can forgive all kinds of transgressions, but not cheating.

I found this story fascinating. Who knew that cheating was so rampant in professional fishing? Even in rinky-dink tournaments like this.

More global-warming BS

I love global warming stories. The more studies that are published, the more full of shit enviromentalists appear. 2 more news articles about global warming:

Agriculture: We are what we eat - National -

The world's livestock (mainly cattle and sheep) are the fastest growing source of agricultural greenhouse emissions, already producing more greenhouse gases than all the world's planes, trains and automobiles.

Targeting rice paddies may reduce greenhouse gas emissions

I am certain that eliminating rice paddies will go over real well in Asia.

So to save the earth all we have to do as a global community is quit eating meat, quit eating rice, stop driving our cars, going on airplanes, never use coal again (that will make winters pretty tough), don't breath to hard, don't listen to rap, or Neil Diamond. Sounds easy enough to me...
