ALL YOU CAN DRINK: The British have discovered scientific proof of what Americans, especially those in college, have known for years. Drinking beer makes the opposite sex look better. MSNBC has the story.

BRITISH SCIENTISTS have found even modest amounts of alcohol will make the opposite sex appear better-looking.

“We have carried out experiments which show that what is known in the trade as the ’beer-goggle effect’ does actually exist,” Barry Jones, professor of psychology at Glasgow University, told Reuters on Monday.

THE WICKED WITCH IS BEATEN: The odious, terrorist-loving nincompoop Congresswoman from Georgia was defeated in the Democratic primary by Judge Denise Majette. Hallelujah! And go check out Reid Stott's site for the latest McKinney-related information.

MEETING WITH THE DEAN: In response to my letter criticizing American University's School of International Service, SIS Dean Lou Goodman e-mailed me suggesting that we meet and discuss the matter. I immediately took him up on the offer, and scheduled a meeting for next Wednesday. To adequately back up my thesis that the school (and academia, in general) has a pervasive, anti-US, anti-Israel bias, I'm going to have to show him a smattering of news articles illustrating my point.

This article from Ha'Aretz (the liberal Israeli daily) looks like a good place to start.

FROM QUEENS TO BOSTON: I'm back from my 10-day excursion of visiting relatives and friends up the Northeast Corridor, and the trip left me with many memorable memories that I'll always remember. There were a lot of firsts on this trip. I attended a wedding for the first time (of my cousin), toured a wax museum for the first time, traveled on a record number of commuter trains, observed my friend having his first drunk experience and making the most of it -- to name a few. I wanted to thank all the family and friends who extended their hospitality during the trip, from my aunts and uncles to friends' aunts and uncles.

In short: I had a great time. Now back to blogging.
