:: From [info]zevshir, this gem of an April Fools' joke:

This is too funny.
The PA Wing website (www.pawingcap.com) has been updated for April Fool's Day. Here's a sample:

Notice of Proposed Regulation
Wednesday, 01 Apr 2009, by JColgan

Part 2, Section 972 (a) 1 (c)

Section I
No CAP member, or person or persons acting on the direction or suggestion or supervision of a CAP member, may try, or attempt to try, or make attempt to try to comprehend or understand any or all, in whole or in part, of the herin mentioned Regulation, except as authorized by the National Commander or an agent appointed by, or inspected by the National Commander.

Section II
If a CAP member or any group of members becomes aware of or realizes, or detects, or discovers, finds that he/she, or they are understanding or have been beginning to understand the Regulations, they must immediately, within three (3) days, notify, in writing, in triplicate, the National Legal Officer using CAPF 129a, Notice of Impending Comprehension.

Section III
Upon receipt of the above-mentioned notice of impending comprehension, the National Legal Officer shall immediately rewrite the Regulation that is in imminent danger of being understood. Such rewriting shall be done in such a manner to eliminate any further hazard of comprehension.

Section IV
The National Commander may, at his/her discretion, require the offending CAP member or members to attend remedial instruction on Regulations until such time that the CAP member or members is too confused to be capable of understanding anything.

"The Wounding Moment"
Chris Ransick

Don't try to tell me now
we were otherwise kind to the girl.
Such lies mock both the truth and
what we've become since with our
accumulated years. I know I will walk
backward through nightmares forever,
trying but unable to catch her tears
in my outstretched palm.
When you tormented her that day
at the woods' edge, summer sky
stormed because your words
curdled clouds. Yes, she was fat,
and her skin raw with blemishes.
I flinched when she raised her head,
red-rimmed eyes fierce, and learned
from her how to speak none of it.
I was, as always, captive in my
little-brotherness to you, my captain,
but I disowned you there with the
sunlight glinting off your blond hair,
all your beauty still somehow less
than her anger, sheathed.

:: The comments on this entry of [info]atheism are creative-solution-finding WIN.
:: From Fizzy, State faces 'worst-ever' fire season I'll be over here, worried sick for Fizzy and her family for the next several months.
