I think I'm done screwing with my posts now, for the day, and I kind of wish I'd gone to bed before checking my news feed again.
Jack LaLanne, the fitness guru who inspired television viewers to trim down, eat well and pump iron for decades before diet and exercise became a national obsession, died Sunday. He was 96.

LaLanne died of respiratory failure due to pneumonia Sunday afternoon at his home in Morro Bay on California's central coast ...

He maintained a youthful physique and joked in 2006 that "I can't afford to die. It would wreck my image." ...

LaLanne (pronounced lah-LAYN') credited a sudden interest in fitness with transforming his life as a teen, and he worked tirelessly over the next eight decades to transform others' lives, too.

"The only way you can hurt the body is not use it," LaLanne said. "Inactivity is the killer and, remember, it's never too late."
I'm gonna go for a long tromp in the woods tomorrow. Jack was right.

Oooh, nooooo....
A $21.7 billion development fund backed by celebrities and hailed as an alternative to the bureaucracy of the United Nations sees as much as two-thirds of some grants eaten up by corruption, The Associated Press has learned. ...

It was on the sidelines of Davos that rock star Bono launched a new global brand, (Product) Red, which donates a large share of profits to the Global Fund. Other prominent backers include former U.N. secretary-general Kofi Annan, French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, whose Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gives $150 million a year.

The fund's inspector general, John Parsons, said donors should be reassured that the fund is serious about uncovering corruption: "It should be viewed as a comparative advantage to anyone who's thinking about putting funds in here."
CRIKEY!

Documented evidence of war crimes....

Ya think....?

Wasn't I just screaming about pre-crime...?

Damned excuses....

Chewing up the Palestine Papers....

About the damn depressing size of it....

Got off with no time, but immediately arrested again... aaaaaiaiayeeee....

Creepy how short this page is, no?



I'm going to have to go to bed almost as soon as I get up, right after my tromp in the trees, now, to get back the coveted early to bed and early to rise thing. All because of Jack LaLanne being followed by badly erring celebrities. RIP, Jack. You're well out of it.

love, 99
