What Choo Talkin Bout Obama?
Alaska crude closed at $128 a barrel on news that President Obama was out touting bio-fuels made from algae in 60 years as an alternative.
Oil industry leaders as well as most Americans reject Obama's claim to have given significant support to oil production.

Sentencing for lunatic Craig Christy of Pennsylvania has been delayed in his harassment case of Sara Palin. He’s been granted time to try and find a doctor to dispute the findings of a federal psychologist. Time being relative, he should find one by 2050!
Sally Jean Maki of Juneau pleaded guilty to laundering drug money. She deposited the drug money as business receipts for Southeast Alaska Tour Company which was just a front for the laundering.

Sen. Murkowski told the legislature that drilling will happen in ANWR, but don’t hold your breath waiting for it. Yes, thus ends this segment of “Things my Grandpa said 50 years ago”!
People both for and against proposition 5, the equal rights initiative, spoke out in meetings this week. It’s interesting how a so-called religiously affiliated group spoke out against the measure. Most churches support equal rights for ALL and so do I. The initiative will be on the April 3 ballot.
Assembly member Paul Honeman is critical of Mayor Sullivan’s handling of snow removal. So is everyone else, BUT, think of this: We’ve had 108.7 inches of snow this winter compared to an average of 49 inches, and we’ve already spent 8.1 million on snow removal and that’s at a contract price that is lower than previous years.
A LA man sold his vintage comic book collection for $3.5 million. The man plans on taping the dollar bills together to form the shape of a girlfriend.
Many fans are wondering why Rihanna would be willing to work with Chris Brown. These are apparently the same people that have never heard about money.
Russell Brand has been playing the field since his split with Katy Perry. What a bizarre and truly unique way for a famous man to deal with suddenly being single.
