A Totally Effed-Up News Day

What a weird way to start the work week…

“Spitzer? I hardly knew her!”

New York Governor Eliot Spitzer has been implicated in a prostitution ring. Now, I’m going to be honest, if Governor Spitzer dallied with a working girl (or, if you prefer, escort) at some point in his past, I’d have no problem with that. I’m sure everyone has some things in their pasts that they’re not proud of. Hell, I’d give him a pass if he was in a “loveless” marriage and wanted to hire someone to deal with his…ahem…executive staff. But, dude, a ring??!!?? Jesus Christ!

Vatican Rewrites Book of Oa

If you’ve been reading Green Lantern, you know that the Guardians (the little blue bastards who run the Green Lantern Corps.) have recently started compiling ten new laws for their Book of Oa. Well, today, the Vatican unveiled seven new “Social” Sins, because, I guess, everyone was doing a really good job of avoiding the first seven. The new “sins” include genetic tampering, polluting, and “excessive wealth” (that last one is pretty funny when you realize that the Pope sleeps in a solid gold bed).

This story made me realize something that I felt the need to share with you all–The Pope is a Guardian! Check it out:

  1. One must love the Vatican telling everyone excessive wealth is a new sin. The are the epitome of excessive wealth.

  2. Seriously.

    I’m waiting for the day that the Pope announces the creation of the Alpha Cardinals.

  3. Wow. New sins. Wait, aren’t those supposed to come from God? Did someone get him on the phone or something?

  4. I think the Big Guy uses e-mail these days. Maybe Facebook.

    As sins go, these are pretty lame. The classics never go out of style. Lust, gluttony, sloth…now these are sins I can get behind.

    Oh, and wrath. Love me some wrath.
