Steevil News Network

This afternoon's news tip updates from Steevil, famed NASA rocket scientist and quahogger--

From Arkansas--someone must have gotten an advance copy of Bill Clinton's book on public service. And yes, there must be something in the water.

From Afghanistan--Steevil notes it might be best for Satari not to laugh, in that if mama's not happy, ain't nobody happy.

From Florida--THEY'RE KILLING THE ARCHITECTS! By way of Bldg Blog, by way of Ann Althouse, the fascinating story of a novel pest control scheme.

From Missouri--will it be good-bye to the enigmatic #33? Devotees of fermented hops and malt (i.e., Steevil and Jimbo) say probably so.

Finally, from Italy--Steevil points us to this cruel japery from the Brothers Judd blog, delivered at the expense of the nation that gave us Sophia Loren. Please, can't we encourage them to do what it is they do best, and leave things like using explodey stuff and firearms to us?

We would like to express our thanks to Steevil for this roundup. Thanks, Steevil!

I think the Arkansas story should say "nabbed" and not "napped".

In Afghanistan, it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that bling.

Regarding Rolling Rock, Yuengling is better anyway.

And Kentuckians and Soul Patrollers are one thing, I'm not messing with the Eye-talians, I watch the Sopranos.

A bit more from my email to Terry:

"Luckily, Anheuser can't get at these guys,, as easily, because they're privately held (owner/ operator/ CEO is Dick Yuengling).

Rolling Rock was the first PA brewery to go from survival to prosperity by doubling their prices and making their bottles taller. Yuengling saw that and did the same thing."

Soul Patrollers, Kentuckians, Mafiosi--feh--I'm much more worried about them women from the Temperence Union coming in here and busting the place up with hatchets.
