“LAKE WORTH, Texas (AP) — A teenager jailed on accusations that he delivered drug-laced cookies to a dozen police stations was released Thursday after tests showed no drugs in goodies taken to two departments.
Blue Mound and Lake Worth police said tests by the Tarrant County medical examiner showed there were no controlled substances in cookies delivered this week by Christian V. Phillips, 18, who had been jailed in Lake Worth on $75,000 bond on a charge of tampering with a consumer product.
Phillips walked quickly out of the jail without commenting while accompanied by his father, who then drove away with his son.”

From the Fort Worth Star Telegram (with another pic the source of which I blanked out. See yesterday.)

"A Watauga teenager was arrested Tuesday after he delivered cookies laced with LSD to the Lake Worth police Department, officials said.
Christian Phillips, 18, of Watauga may have delivered drug-tainted cookies and candy to a dozen area police departments, based on a list he was carrying that named 25 departments with 12 of them checked off, police said.
Watauga police ate all the cookies taken to them.
A basket was delivered Monday to the Fort Worth Police Department’s downtown headquarters, and at least three officers, including a sergeant and a detective, ate some of the items, Fort Worth police said.
Fort Worth and Watauga police are investigating whether the food they received was drugged and whether any of the officers who ate it suffered adverse reactions, authorities said.
Investigators believe the teen may have started dropping off the baskets with candy and cookies about a week ago. The baskets included a logo indicating that they were from Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD.
But Lake Worth police were ready for Phillips. MADD officials had called the Lake Worth department Tuesday morning after they learned that someone had been delivering the baskets to area police departments, claiming to be from that agency.
MADD officials said they had nothing to do with the baskets.
Phillips was arrested about 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Lake Worth police station when he attempted to drop off a basket of cookies and peppermint candy, saying they came from MADD.
Phillips remained in the Lake Worth Jail late Tuesday on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance."

As Iran rattles its rockets, I can only reflect that we have been so fucking lucky with regard to thermo nuclear global annihilation that I fear it has made us all kinda blasé. After finessing our way through the sixty some years since Hiroshima and Nagasaki, through the Cold War, Mutually Assured Destruction, Vietnam, the Reagan era and two Gulf wars. Pakistan v India, and Kim Jong-il without popping so much as a single nuke, we may now be pushing our luck. Nuclear proliferation was one of those things that George Bush didn’t much like and thus idiots were put in charge, which essentially allows Bush buddies in the Pakistani almost-military junta to sell nuke tech to anyone who can pony up the scratch. I mean, Wal-Mart could have a bomb if it wanted one. Or Paul McCartney. (And don’t even mention the Russian mob in the context of nukes.) Without drastic and probably impossible international reforms, it’s a Vegas certainty that a real nut-job will get an atomic WMD and then, brothers and sisters, we will really see history being made.

I picked up this fine piece of art while shamelessly tolling cyber space for images. I think it came from the blog of a regular Doc40 reader, but when I got back to base I’d forgotten where I stole it. So if you recognize the pic, post a comment and I’ll post a link.
The question was answered. Check out here and here.

The secret word is Malcontent


(I kinda felt obligated after all the Google searches that have been initiated since we published the infamous Katy Manning nude-with-Dalek pic in May of 2007.)

HCB sent over the image, reminding me that, sixty one years ago today, the Roswell Army Air Field issued a press release stating that personnel from the field's 509th Bomb Group had recovered a crashed "flying disc" from a ranch near Roswell. New Mexico. Later the same day, the somewhat irate Commanding General of the Eighth Air Force stated that, in fact, a weather balloon had been recovered by RAAF personnel, and definitely not a "flying saucer." And that’s how it went on for six more decades, with official explanations of weather balloons and marsh gas that insult our intelligence and do nothing to explain all the flying discs, EBEs, MJ-12, the fact that our pal from Pin Bush, NY is up to his ass in black triangles, and all the other alien stuff that paranoia to heir to. A new cycle of demands for full disclosure is currently thriving, and demands are being made for either a confirmation or denial from the government that Eisenhower made a secret treaty with the aliens in the early 1950s. Of course, the tendancy is to assume that the US government is the author of all this secrecy. If, however, it was the little grey bastards with the skinny fingers and big creepy eyes who wanted, and still want, to stay on the downlow, aren’t we kinda fucked?

A couple of days ago, I posted a nostalgic print ad for the Dick Tracy Two-Way Wrist Radio. This prompted Lost Jimmy and ib to bring up the subject of those damned sea monkeys that they used to advertise on the back of comic books. Sea monkeys were supposedly these small sentient beings who lived in miniature 1950s tract homes, watched microscopic TV sets, ate tiny TV dinners, and drank miniscule martinis, and every kid wanted a family of them, except, in the form that they were advertised, they never really existed. The first time I sent off for some sea monkeys, nothing happened. The second time, I received a bunch of lousy brine shrimp that were nothing like creatures in the advertising, and would no more watch TV than fly in the air. At the same time, I had my first indication that the adult world – despite all of its father-knows-best moral posturing – was the habitat of crooks and liars and totally couldn’t be trusted. Since that time, like-minded crooks and liars in the adult world have given me Dadaist drug laws, a handful of bloody wars, a mess of assassination conspiracies, oil dependency, and a ruined planet. (And I still think of the forces ranged against my perception of reason as the adult world. I guess a petulant teenager still lurks somewhere inside me, complete with shades and a turned up collar.)

There is a natural order at Doc40 that we can’t go for very long without posting a picture of Marilyn Monroe. The last one went up on May 22nd. And now it’s definitely time for another…


I would really be a whole lot happier if, at the end of his term, George Bush didn’t walk away scot-free. (This is assuming that Cheney and Rove haven’t come up with some Reichstag endgame to nullify democracy and extend the Bush reign indefinitely.) The man has wrecked the USA (not to mention Iraq) for everyone except the super-rich and his oil baron masters, and, one way of another, he should pay for it. I’m aware that a Saddam Hussein internet execution is out of the question, and I’m also aware that the Democrats won’t proceed with impeachment this side of the election, fearing a sympathy backlash. But once the election is done, I’d be like the proverbial dog with two tails if Georgie was hauled away in handcuffs, made to do the perp-walk, or otherwise penalized for the enormity of all that he’s done.
