What a Wonderful World

Richard Simmons is autographing his new DVD at my local Walgreen's. Go ahead and top that if you can.

U.S. reports drop in homeless population

I expected to read this, but not for another seven months or so. Perhaps the mere expectation of a President Obama works miracles.

Let Them Eat Cake Arugula

LA blocks new fast-food outlets from poor areas

Freedom is overrated. It's almost as though someone will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual.

"Coal Makes Us Sick"

No doubt Senator Reid, but salicylic acid and paracetamol are derived from coal tar, so it makes us better too.

I would have linked a YouTube video, but oddly, all instances of Senator Reid beclowning himself seem to have vanished down the memory hole. It went from most popular video to vanished in less than a day. I have to laugh at all the people who thought Microsoft was the dark side of the force.

The Oebama Factor

The boy wonder wanders in:

Former Vice President Dan Quayle said Tuesday he respects Democrat Barack Obama "because he beat the Clintons" and fears Republican John McCain has an "uphill battle" to defeat Obama in November's presidential election.

But hey, it's not like he's going to be taken seriously. Heck, he doesn't take himself seriously:

Quayle also acknowledged that he expected Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Mitt Romney would meet in the general election.

Hey it could happen. In 2012.
