FOR OUR READER

Editors

Stockton & Tweed and Bad Vernacular will be signing off for a few weeks (maybe four, maybe six, maybe eight). We are not abandoning BV or the fight to return good drugs and hot women to the White House.

However, a variety of things have become apparent. First of all, lampooning Bush has lost much of its relevance because Bush has lost much of his relevance. He's a lame duck, very unpopular now and making fun of him on a regular basis makes as much sense as making fun of Warren Harding.

Secondly, we'd never be able to keep up the pace through to the next election. That's a fight we want to join in and we don't want to be burned out for 2008.

Thirdly, the Schiavo matter has left a bad taste in our mouths (along with the cheap bourbon we drink). No matter where you stand on the issue, and there are plenty of grey areas, the circus that erupted was despicable. Yes, it was the fault of the Christian Right, but that makes the spectacle no less despicable.

So, we are going to go on hiatus. We'll post if we feel like it and do nothing if we feel like it. Basically, it's time to re-charge the batteries and see what direction we are going to take Bad Vernacular. We may end up doing more social satire than political for now. Who knows. We may abandon our serious entries for more of a comical look at the world. Either way, we hope to be back refreshed and ready to go.

In the meantime, we leave you with this, possibly the best damn link ever. Have fun with it.
We've had fun making the cut-outs.
