Invading Burma: Redux

Apparently, some pretty smart think tank people in Washington are reading Gikku.Com, because they seem to be coming around to the idea of a humanitarian invasion of Burma. It turns out that the US Navy happens to be in the area conducting some war games, so it would be pretty easy to go up the Irawaddy Delta to deliver supplies to all the people who are…well…dying.

That might be nice.

Time Magazine seems to agree with us.

It’s being covered in Slate too.

Even my friend Robert Kaplan, who’s a fellow at Center for a New American Security thinks it might be kinda cool, as expressed in a recent New York Times editorial.

Elvis After Dark

In Memphis, in a mini-mall next door to the Graceland Visitor Center, there is a small, adjunct exhibition gallery entitled “Elvis After Dark”.  It chronicles the nocturnal adventures of Elvis, who only ventured out at night to avoid being mobbed by an adoring public.

Imagine my utter joy: the first thing you see upon entering the exhibit was a TV that Elvis shot with his handgun.  Apparently, it is only surviving existing example of the many appliances that Elvis shot:

As If We Needed Another Reason to Keep Gikku.com on the Down Low

“Cho left a long and vitriolic note in his dorm room, law enforcement sources told ABC News. It contained an explanation of his actions and states, ‘You caused me to do this,’ ABC News reported.

“It also railed against ‘rich kids,’ ‘debauchery‘ and ‘deceitful charlatans‘ on campus, according to the Chicago Tribune.”

Looks like we here at gikku.com are batting 1.000 on this latest list of sins.

Went out to the range yesterday. I maybe hit that 15″ steel plate 4-5 times out of 40?

 You understand that we will have to go out to the shooting range in Vegas and try out the automatic weapons, etc.?  It’s de rigeur.
