Dews Tuesday round-up

Was thinking I would do a quick analysis of the Choral Arts Society performance last night at the Kennedy Center, being the cultural attache of the blog (I guess?), but other then a very sad Finnish song they played towards the beginning, and one guy's bell not working (he looked a bit confused) it was an amazing show.

I'm not usually the "christmassy" type mind you, but was a very well put together performance and would highly reccomend people see it while it is in town.

Anyway! On to the business at hand, random stuff around the world!

We lead off with more christmas news as a 33-year old woman in Danbury CT apparently likes Santa a bit too much, and doesn't care whether its reciprocated:
A 33-year-old woman was charged with fourth-degree sexual assault Saturday
after allegedly groping a man playing Santa Claus at the Danbury Fair mall.

Sandrama Lamy, 33, of Danbury, is charged with fourth-degree sexual assault,
according to Danbury Detective Lt. Thomas Michael.

"I don't know what the deal was. It was just bizarre," the mall Santa told
a reporter, referring all other questions about the incident to Cherry Hill
Photo, the company that runs the Danbury Fair mall Santa photo setup.

Indeed, took the words right outta my mouth Mall Santa...


Turkey has finally pressed their troops into Iraq proper, possibly eying Tikrit and Kirkuk as bases of operation for larger scale "projects". Those two cities being typically majority Kurds and Kirkuk being one of the largest oil producing hubs in Iraq making them very high visibility and valuable targets to the Turkish government.


Last but not least, McCain looks to be making some sort of return in Iowa for the GOP Nomination. Though he is doing so with a politician I have just as much disdain for as I do for him in Mr. Joe Lieberman...

The Mac is Back," said a hand-painted sign on the wall of the packed
American Legion post where Lieberman announced his endorsement on Monday, a
newly optimistic tone after a bumpy campaign year for the Arizona senator.

The decision by the Senate's best-known independent to snub the Democratic
Party could help McCain win a bigger share of the tide of independent voters who
have been expected to flow to the Democratic field in New Hampshire's
first-in-the-nation primary on Jan. 8.

I guess I should kind of expect these two to be in bed with each other... They've made the end of their careers surround the idea of selling their souls to whomever they think will buy them and back their political ideas (of which they are also easily manipulated to the highest bidder).

That's about all to report for the time being, but I'll be sure to check in again soon with some more...
