First Word
"While (Obama) may have intended such a mea culpa as a conciliatory gesture to improve our international standing among Muslims, his misdirected fire will likely have a more harmful result." - -Bill Kennedy, Right Here Right Now

Today is Friday, June 26, the 177th day of 2009. There are 188 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:

Five years ago: President George W. Bush won support from the 25-nation European Union for an initial agreement to help train Iraq’s armed forces. A memorial service was held in Egg Harbor Township, N.J., for Paul M. Johnson Jr., an engineer slain by kidnappers in Saudi Arabia.

Watercooler Talk
TUSTIN, Calif. (AP) — Police say a California man donning a bustier and watching porn on a computer in an apartment complex gym was arrested after officers found drugs in his backpack.

Sgt. Todd Bullock says 45-year-old Stephen Murdoch of Tustin was arrested early Tuesday after a security guard spotted him in a workout room that was supposed to be closed and locked.

When police peered inside, they saw Murdoch — also in a miniskirt, fishnet stockings and heels — hiding behind exercise equipment and watching an adult film on a laptop. Officers noticed Murdoch was sweating profusely and talking quickly. They arrested him on suspicion of drug possession after allegedly finding marijuana, methamphetamine and pipes in his bag.

Murdoch did not return a call seeking comment Wednesday.
