Query: Does this MSM editor (Harold Jackson) know how full of shit he is and is saying what he’s saying despite knowing better or is really as clueless as he appears? I mean of all the people deserving of a public platform, John Yoo — well, he’s nowhere on that list. Correction: The dip is even more full of shit than you could imagine; his lies about hiring Yoo are laid out here.
Maybe this world is another planet’s hell. — Aldous Huxley
What a lovely idea. Wrong in a way, but lovely.
Headline of the day:
Speaking of which: What happened to Neanderthals? Did they just die out as part of the rise of us Cro-Magnons? Or did we them all up??
Look at this, what we need: A model of the Battle of Stalingrad.
All about debt collectors (a growing field, I’m sure).
Illegal downloading of music: What a wonderful way to hear music before you buy, something the recording industry clearly believes is no longer necessary for sales, that not being able to hearing what you’re buying before you buy actually hurts sales.

Radio no longer lets you hear what you otherwise might buy; outside of illegal downloads, where else can you go for a free sample? Sad and scary.
Revealed: Where Dick Cheney was hiding all them years. As if.
A thought: In the old days, you’d read the paper and read news you saw the night before on the T.V. Now, you read the paper and read stuff you read two days earlier online. Newspapers give you the world on the web days later….
Anyone here really care about Michelle Obama? Me neither.

One more time: Rummy’s artful briefing papers. What bothers me more than the gratuitous (to say the least) religious quotes is the gross over-reduction of information to a pretty imbecilic level.
Pay your bills on time? Jamie Dimon and his ilk want to punish you and make you pay for not drowning in debt.
Oooh, what a momma!
Sad but true:
