Coyoty eats candied olives.

Dried preserved sweet olive candy from China.  Ingredients include "fresh peel" (I assume olive peel), salt, sugar, liquorice, and "chilli".  Purchased at A Dong Supermarket in West Hartford, CT.

The above ingredients appear to be for the marinade.  The real main ingredient is dried olives, complete with huge pits.  It takes awhile to chew the flesh off each pit, but it's not unpleasant.  They're a little spicy from the chili, and candy-sweet, but I can still taste a little olive flavor.  You'll need someplace to put the pits while eating.  there are two ways to eat them.  You could gnaw each olive until you get most of the meat off the pit, or eat them like you would tiny corn cobs.  Gnawing takes longer and doesn't get as much meat, but it's cleaner.  Corn cob style is quicker and gets almost all the meat, but makes your fingers sticky.

They're good, but my limit is four, because they're so sweet and so much trouble to eat.  I think I prefer my dried olives dryer and pitted.

Madame President?

With the new Democratic majority, Rep. Nancy Pelosi is expected to be the first female Speaker of the House, and the highest ranking woman ever in the U.S. This will make her next in line after Cheney for the Presidency. If anything were to happen to Bush and Cheney, such as impeachment after the Democrats dig up juicy dirt on them in the coming flood of investigations, that would make her the first woman President.

Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
