Mascots get the shaft
CNN | Submitted by: UscFiend
"Outlawed would be Redskins, Indians, Braves, Chiefs, Apaches, and Comanches, as well as any other American Indian tribal name. Under the [California] legislation, a state commission would then add to the banned list any other names it decides are "derogatory or discriminatory against any race, ethnicity, nationality or tribal group," and schools would be forced to comply." There goes the Encino Nignogs.

Dog fight heats up in Korea
American Prospect | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"Because dog meat is technically illegal in Korea, you'll never find it on a menu per se. Instead, you have to keep a keen eye out for what is called poshintang, or "tonic soup." Particularly popular in the summer, during the dog days of the Chinese calendar between July 19 and August 18, poshintang is alleged to make men more "vital." Even putting a drop of the soup on your foot is supposed to make you stronger. Dog soup tends to attract men of a certain age, the same ones lapping up Viagra the world over."

German Chancellor's hair-dye debate ist Verboten!
International Herald Tribune | Submitted by: Son of Benway
Now on a campaign for re-election, Gerhard Schroeder has gone to court to prevent the press from speculating about his hair color. An appeals court is expected today to uphold an injunction "that effectively prohibits any news organization from even suggesting that Schroeder's has been dyed, tinted or touched up in any way." Dye job or not, German voters now know for sure that he's flaky.

The Sublime Beauty of The Rat
MSNBC | Submitted by: Dominus Bishop
"To overcome bias, fans and pet stores call such beasts "fancy rats," claiming they are no more like their gutter-crawling cousins than a wolf is like a terrier. Scientifically, they are identical: the same Norway Rat species commonly seen near the trash."

North Korea's Jesus: road worker, air traffic controller
Japan Today | Submitted by: Dominus Bishop
"Kim Jong Il enjoys legendary status, being credited with developing socialist philosophy and famous for his regular field trips across the country to dispense "on the spot guidance." He has toiled to help workers widen roads, guided operatic productions and once prevented a disaster by taking over from air traffic controllers to guide a military plane to a safe landing during a storm."

Hotmail fucks users over
Eastside Journal | Submitted by: Soylent
"The latest is a doozy. Yesterday an irate reader tipped me off to the fact that Microsoft has changed the privacy settings for Hotmail... In short, if you are already signed up for and use Hotmail, Microsoft has given itself the right to share your e-mail address and other data with outside companies, even if you explicitly told Microsoft not to do so when you signed up."
