Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s wife and daughter were in a very serious automobile accident today, rear-ended by a semi-truck:

The wife and daughter of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid were injured today in an auto accident on a Washington, D.C., highway when the car they were driving in was rear-ended by a semi-truck.

In a statement released this evening, his office said the senator’s wife, Landra, 69 years old, has a broken nose, back, and neck but is able to feel her extremities. His daughter, Lana, also sustained an unspecified neck injury and lacerations to her face. The statement said doctors have informed them that their injuries are not life-threatening. [more]

His wife’s condition is listed as serious, his daughter will reportedly be released tonight.

We wish them both a full and speedy recovery.

Yes, that’s a real iceberg. Or part of one. Lagerfeld had it shipped in from Sweden for Chanel’s ready to wear show (undoubtedly at outrageous expense, creating a titanic carbon footprint) where it dutifully and fabulously melted to the patter of fashionably enthusiastic, eco-friendly golf-claps. Supermodels splashayed the arctic catwalk apparently wearing the polar bears from Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth and the slaughtered remains of half the population of Endor.

The only message one could possibly draw from such a display is that if global warming is killing the polar bears anyway (it’s not), we might as well wear their carcasses.

Either that or “climate change” has just about jumped the shark.
