It looks like the French troops in Mali are going to get
chased all over the place. They sent their best elite 
regular troops, looking like scared, undernourished, 
big-city gang members. Even after the French Air Force 
bombed the Islamists for hours, their ground troops were
chased and the Islamists took another town.

Eduardo del Buey, a United Nations spokesman, said Monday 
that an estimated 30,000 Malian civilians may have been 
displaced since the French started "fighting" last week. 

If they want to make a noticeable difference, they will have
to send in the French Foreign Legion. You can tell the 
difference instantly. Instead of pale and scared kids, the
Legionaires are usually older, well fed and muscled, and
because they live in Madagascar and on Corsica, are quite
nicely tanned, as you would expect from somebody, who chooses
to sign up for training and body-building in the sunshine
for 25 years, or whatever time it takes, until what he had 
done is no longer a reason to chase him. 

I worked in Corsica one summer and got to know some 
Legionaires. Unless things have changed drastically, those 
guys would not have been chased out of town by the Islamists.

So for now, France is just dropping bombs. Lots of them, 
and hopes to get reasonably accurate by mid summer.

Have FUN!

The Greenbaum twins had stumbled across a dead horse. 'What shall we do with it?' asked Johnathan. 'Let's raffle it,' said Joseph. '£2 a ticket, limited sale of 201 tickets.' 'But what happens when the winner finds out it's dead?' reasoned Johnathan. 'So, we'll give him his money back!' was the reply.
As the funeral procession went by, the American tourist inquired of a Dublin policeman: 'Who's dead?' 'I'm not sure,' said the Bobby, 'but I think it's the feller in the front car.'

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Vanessa Brooks, 22, St. Petersburg, Florida Jailed After Stealing Police Cruiser, Fleeing To McDonalds Reported by The Weekly Vice Vanessa Brooks, a 22-year-old Florida woman was jailed Saturday after she allegedly stole a cell phone, stole an officer's patrol car and then fled to a McDonalds in Tampa. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, police had been called to a St. Petersburg apartment complex on a domestic violence complaint when one of the officers left his patrol car running because a fight was in progress at the scene. Another officer arrived on the scene and parked directly behind the first officer, but did not leave the keys in the car. While the officers were dealing with the domestic dispute, Brooks flagged down a motorist on a nearby road - then reached into his vehicle, grabbed a cell phone out of his car and then fled on foot. She then ran to a nearby apartment building, where police were dealing with the domestic dispute case. She got into the running police cruiser, backed into the parked cruiser, then took off with the vehicle. The officers were unaware of the incident until they were finished with the domestic case. According to the Tampa Bay Police Department, the stolen cruiser was spotted by officers around 10:00 p.m. with Brooks sitting in the driver's seat. When Brooks saw an officer approach her, she jumped out of the patrol car and fled on foot. She was apprehended a short distance away. Brooks was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail and charged with grand theft auto, obstructing an officer, and burglary. Amazing what some people will do just to get a free glamor shot at the Hillsborough County Sheriffs office!

A teacher caught a student in the hall during class time and said, "Brooke, tell me, whose class you're cutting this time?" The young teen said, "Like, uh, see, okay, like it's like, I really don't like, think like, that's really important, y'know, like because I'm, y'know, like I don't get anything out of it." The teacher smiled and said, "It's your English class, isn't it?"
