I like how the guy did it to raise awareness about how unfairly homosexuals are looked upon by the Southern Baptists. I couldn't think of a better way to change the group's mind then taking a leader of theirs hostage at bottle-point.

I used to frequently win web design arguments at meetings by bringing half a smashed glass bottle with me, it's nice to see the use of that brilliant tactic catching on.

Thanks for the tip, Matt.

I've got a departmental meeting tomorrow to discuss a site redesign, and up to this point I've been fighting a losing battle trying to get the marketing wonks to cut out some of the technobabble so I can lighten up the pages. This time, though, I'll go in with a renewed sense of resolve – and a jagged glass bottle. Betcha they'll listen now.

I like that the perpetrator operated an "extensive homosexual website".

If anyone can help me find out if that website is an inny or an outty, I'd appreciate it. Somehow it seems important that I know.

I assume it's this one.

I can't wait till IT finds my query for "san diego gay website" in the logs. I anticipate some odd looks tomorrow.

You asked for it, UncleFes, you got it.

Now all we need is a mousepad.

"The incident took place...while David Powell, 44, minister of maintenance and media, was shampooing carpet..."

Minister of maintenance and media?
