If at first you don't succeed, try to interest them in vegetarianism

TAIPEI, Taiwan - A man leaped into a lion�s den at the Taipei Zoo on Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was bitten in the leg for his efforts.

�Jesus will save you!� shouted the 46-year-old man at two African lions lounging under a tree a few meters away.

�Come bite me!� he said with both hands raised, television footage showed.

One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right leg before zoo workers drove it off with water hoses and tranquilizer guns.

From Reuters via MSNBC. Maybe he got the idea from the "Nero" scene in that Mel Gibson movie.

For every penny earned, two squandered

George, in his first post-election news conference:

I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it.

Maureen Dowd, in the same day's New York Times:

The president got re-elected by dividing the country along fault lines of fear, intolerance, ignorance and religious rule. He doesn't want to heal rifts; he wants to bring any riffraff who disagree to heel.
