See, this is why I always read Lindsay first thing in the morning. Puts the right perspective on the rest of the day.

They blame 'a shrub', but it's yew. It's Yew. YEW did it!.. & yew'd do it again, given half a chance! (oh, the humanity... the huMANity!)
"The investigators said it was unclear if the cold truck may have contributed. "The audit team is unable to ascertain how much of a factor the air temperature was in this case," it said.."--
Obviously, an audit team with a headcold needs to ride across the Rocky Mountain front at midnite, strapped to the roof of a pickup... coats optional. ^..^

Oh right, blame the yews.
There's a word for that, you know.

I can't believe no one's commented on the elephant's name yet.

My wife had the same reaction that Rabbit did. "Bush hits a new low", though she was a bit more vehement about it.

btw I am SURE someone at the Trib did that on purpose.
