This list has been pretty slow lately. Thought I'd pass on a couple of
items from the Atl. Constitution's weird news briefs section:
REALLY HUMAN: The protection against discrimination on the basis of
sexual orientation in Cincinnati's new human rights ordinance was
repealed in November 1993. However, the ordinance has the nation's only
provision forbidding discrimination against "Appalachian Americans."
[in Australia] members of Parliament traditionally address one another
much more aggressively than [in US Congress] Among the names recently
overheard on the floor of the Parliament: perfumed gigolo,
brain-damaged, harlot, sleazeba, scumbag, mental patient, and dog's vomit.
This is probably mild compared to what's been going on in Russia lately.
