Cheap AC's

Target is going to be selling cheap AC's - 5000 BTU units for $75 each - in Herald Square on Thursday, and then on Saturday at the Second Avenue Festival. If anyone needs an AC, this is a great way to get one. And it even comes with a pull cart to drag it home.

US Congressmen crown Moon King of the Universe

The Reverend Sun Myung Moon was coronated with a jeweled crown by not-so-God-fearing members of Congress. No joke. (Although it wasn't actually as King of the Universe, just King of Peace. )

King of Peace? I guess all I have to say is: What Would Jesus Think?
