This is not the Easter Bunny (or the Spring Bunny). Her name is Autum and she needs a permanent home. Clickon her picture for more information on helping rabbits.
World Net Daily fumes about the left-wing attack on yet another Christian holiday ... Easter.
See what Shakespeare Sister does with this ....

This week, I found Catty's advice to be fairly benign. She does still deliver a healthy dose of hypocrisy along with a rather nasty scratch at a reader. Overall, she continues to fall far short of the bar set by the advice goddesses, Ann and Abby. How much longer will the Post-Gazette force us to endure her clumsy attempts to channel Sex in the City?
Note to PG: Sex in the City is off the air. If you want to deliver a saucy pop-culture influenced dose of advice, find us an Earl or a Dwight Schrute.
Correspondent's Call: When she writes " Why should it be the right of a self-selected group of people to determine the proper attire at a social function," Catty should take a long hard look back at her comments on the proper attire for women to wear on dates. I guess it is different for someone paid by the PG to dish out obnoxious advice.

From the latest edition of Vogue comes this ad for Marc Jacobs (click on the image to see the larger ad). To see the whole thing for yourself, go to his website click on the rat (???) and then click on Ads under the Collections menu.
Most ads are just annoying. This goes over the line. It is clearly a scene involving a violent crime against a woman. How does this tie in with selling clothes? Clothes for women?
Hmmm ....I think I'll cancel my subscription to Vogue (ha ha). I wonder what Stella McCartney thinks?
You can let Vogue know what you think about this kind of advertising firstname.lastname@example.org

In a stunning human rights travesty, Gay City News reports that gays and lesbians are being systematically kidnapped, beaten and murdered on a daily basis by Iraqui death squads.
Following a death-to-gays fatwa issued last October by Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, death squads of the Badr Corps have been systematically targeting gay Iraqis for persecution and execution, gay Iraqis say. But when they ask for help and protection from U.S. occupying authorities in the Green Zone, the secure area officialdom has carved out within Baghdad, gays Iraqis are met with indifference and derision.
Under the Iraqi Constitution-virtually written by the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, Zalmay Khalilzad, and his associates-Sharia law, which mandates death for homosexuals, is the foundation of all Iraqi law.
