Or so says this Somali pirate:
”The mere killing of three and capturing one will not make us change our mind,” said one pirate holding a German ship anchored in the Somali town of Harardhere who refused to give his name. ”We are determined to continue our business regardless of the recent killings and arrests.”

It was a hard decision that took months to make, unlike easy questions like spending trillions of dollars we don’t have or restructuring private industry, but Obama is the Decider and he’s opted to eschew the easier, softer way of just picking up a dog at the pound and instead has chosen to accept a Portugese water dog from a fat, murderous millionaire. The dog’s name? Mary Jo.
From The Virginian: Obama flies chef and his partner 860 miles to make pizza for the White House. Let’s see: waste of my money? Check. Ecological disaster? Check. Hubris? Double check. Houston, the turkey has landed!
Great news on The Wall Street Journal. I want to be a Navy Seal when I grow up. But the ship’s captain is a pretty cool dude, too.
