I finally decided to get hip and get an iPod today. I ended up getting he iPod+hp sold at Radio Shack. Unfortunately, I'd like to say it's a cool, fun device, but I'd never know because it's a freakin' nightmare trying to connect to the PC.

Many people seem to think that Southpark and its creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, are somewhat bipartisian and indescriminatory when it comes to picking on demographic groups or political issues. The reality is much different. Southpark's creators are Republicans and are politically-active, albeit in a low-key way.

This would be fine and dandy had the pair continued to quietly promote their conservative agenda of subtle stereotype reinforcement, but they've become more bold as the election approaches.

No cellulite treatments work permanently, but we keep trying them anyway. Guess what, there is no miracle cure for cellulite, but people will try anything!
