Friday's Fritters and Some Cheesecake Too!

Didn't You Used to be Famous?

It is a rather slow news day...the perfect time to remind you that at one time the Aging Disco Diva graced the covers of every fabulous magazine in the world...well, my dreams....but that counts.

Drudge is a slug without a shell

Drudge, the sludge, put (IMHO) Price Harry in great danger by reporting that he was deployed in Afghanistan. Harry is the royal who, thank goodness, looks NOTHING like the horsey set on his *wink-wink-wink* father's side.

Whatcha think? I just don't see the resemblance....

but as always, I digress.... I was impressed with Prince Harry's desire to do what he perceived as his patriotic duty and annoyed that someone was willing to put him in greater danger to garner a few more website hits.

The Defense Ministry announced Friday that Prince Harry, the third in line to the British throne, would have to come home from Afghanistan because it was too risky for him to stay there.

Harry, 23, has been in Helmand Province with the British Army since December with the knowledge of most of the British media, which agreed to keep the news secret for security reasons. Details of his deployment became widely known only after they were reported by The Drudge Report on Thursday and the British media decided that the agreement was off.

The Defense Ministry said in a statement that although Harry had been expected to remain in Afghanistan for a few more weeks with his unit from the Household Cavalry Regiment Battlegroup, "the situation has now clearly changed."

As a result, the chief of the defense staff, Air Chief Marshal Jock Stirrup, had decided "to withdraw Prince Harry from Afghanistan immediately," the ministry said.

General Richard Dannatt, chief of the general staff of the army, said he was "very disappointed" that "foreign Web sites" had thoughtlessly posted the story without asking for permission.

"This is in stark contrast to the highly responsible attitude that the whole of the U.K. print and broadcast media, along with a small number of overseas, who have entered into an understanding with us over the coverage of Prince Harry on operations," Dannatt said in a statement.
