In every state in America, a bar owner is liable to lawsuit if a bartender serves too many drinks and a customer dies in an auto accident. Hand a chainsaw to a child, you're in legal trouble. Until Bush signed the 2005 protect-the-gun-makers law, the same common law against negligent distribution applied to firearms.
What a terrible thing that happened at Va Tech! Fucking Pyscho, I hope he rots! And if we really give a shit about waht happened and don't want to see it happen again, then we have to shut down these right wing nuts that believe that the constitution provides for the common joe owning a Barrett .50 cal. It's retarded to allow violent, sick, people access to high powered rifles and hollow points. And by sick, violent people I mean ALL AMERICANS! Don't think we are sick and Violent? Go back and watch "Bowling for Columbine" or don't take Michael Moore's word for it read, "Overthrow" by Kinzer; he's got plenty of material to demonstrate the violent historical nature of our country. And by the way, how is it that the same nuts who are ok with little kids murdering each other with AKs have such a problem with a woman deciding when the kid she can't take care of or love would be better off dead? Whats the fucking difference whether it's in the womb or the street or in the 3rd tri-mester or sixth grade? The fucking hypocrites should be hung by their cocks.
In lighter news, I ran into Ernest Borgnine at LAX the other day. He asked me what flight the luggage coming down the conveyor belt in front of us was from and as you know, I am very easily star struck so, I just froze up and pretended I was deaf and retarded. He was a great guy. Shook hands, even signed an autograph, with a huge smile I might add, for a youngster. You know he is cool, after all he saved Snake in that alley. I wonder how he got through airport security with those molotov cocktails in his luggage? He is not to be harmed in the race war!
Newt Gingrich is such a douche bag. Not only does this not mke any fucking sense but, he just goes on and on and ultimately he's so off the mark. The only ones that want to silence people are his buddys on the religious right. Fuck him:

I have never been driven to tears by the death of a public figure. Few, if any, deserve the emotion or salt. But, the death of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. is a very heavy loss. I have, for decades now, been a devoted fan of this most brilliant genius amongst men. The "Titans of Siren" made me laugh and gave me reason to love fiction. "Mother Night" and "Breakfast of Champions" are, without argument two of the greatest novels to grace the shelves of my personal library. I know that from this point on out his stories will be optioned by hollywood types and that his life will be analyzed through his writing but, no movie or eulogy will ever capture the true greatness of such an amazing writer. Humanity has lost something unique and special today. There will never exist another writer that can match or come close to this master of fiction. Hunter S. Thompson finally has someone reasonable to talk to. God Bless you Mr. Rosewater, you will finally know if "why not?" is the answer to your question.

6.5% alc. by vol. Not bad for a first time! Of course the good folks at www.homebrew.com (free plug) made it possible. The bad part is I have to wait four freaking weeks for it to finish fermenting. It might look a little less cloudy by then too if all things go right. I'm going back to that same ol' place tommorrow so I'll see my old buddys and you can all gasp at how long my hair is now. By the way, I saw Nikki Sixx at Universal City walk today. The man is living testimony that heroin and pussy are the key to eternal youth. He's gotta be 50+ and he looks younger than me. Maybe I need more heroin?
