Saturday On The Web

Ten things you should know about Iraq and won't see in the news.

Chris Rock predicting OJ would write a book, from 1997. He even got the title right.

How dumb is your dog? Shai Shai is a pug and her breed is ranked number 57 in the smart department. Of course this is based on obedience and the ability to learn commands quickly. According to this chart it takes 40 to 80 repetitions. What a crock. Breedists!

Shai learned the down command hand signal without ever being trained. She watched my brother train his Ridgeback and followed the command the first time and every time since. Sometimes not as quickly as I would like but she always does it. She also knows all her toys by name. I got her a new squeaky frog toy yesterday and even though it doesn't look like her first one, she knew exactly what it was. My favorite trick of hers is when she pretends that something is wrong with her. She doesn't do it often, like she knows not to overuse it, but it works every time and she gets my immediate attention. Dumb? I don't think so. Manipulative? Very.

Onions and garlic are not only tasty, but evidence is mounting that they are linked to lower rates of some cancers.

Do you know God's three pet peeves? It looks like I might be warm for eternity.

The original contract with America. Soon to be null and void.

Do you know the ten things that are bad that are good for you?
