Even though it’s
unnecessary now that so many persuasive voices have railed against plans to
rescue the crippled U.S.
auto industry, I’m jumping on the “no bailout” pile. My hatred of domestic cars
has always been intense, and I enjoy stomping once bloated adversaries while
they’re on their knees begging.
And everybody wants to be Irish. So it all works out.
We predicted that the world would embrace America's first African-American president, but never imagined they'd actually hijack his heritage. Cannot wait for the German edition.
For my first science/techie blog I was going to write about the bacon iPod case. Ok, it's not that scientific or techie, but come on it's an iPhone wrapped in bacon!! Ok, it's not really bacon, but it's still pretty ingenious. It's actually a bacon-looking felt case wrapping an iPhone, and really asks the deeper question of what isn't better with bacon? That's deep.
At dinner before Jim Norton’s Saturday nightcap at The Comedy Connection’s Wilbur Theatre, I commented: “I want to sit like Lincoln.” For anyone unfamiliar with where the 16th president was assassinated, I meant I wanted balcony seats. No shit – I really said that.This was a passing hope; I’ve never in my life been blessed with such exalted digs, and I didn’t expect this time to differ.
Today, the panel of experts (and Lance Gould) discuss the best place in Massachusetts to raise a family...Malden?

No, seriously. Shocker.
This photo, which seems to be authentic, is hosted on whitehouse.gov, accompanying a press release about President Bush welcoming 2008 NCAA champions to the White House. Perhaps, as my colleagues surmise, he thinks they're all throwing a pitchfork, as homage to the Arizona State Sun Devils?
TONE DEAF5 years agoNovember 14, 2003 | Chris Wright thought it strange that the Globe delivered trivial corrections in the same tone as it did significant ones.“There have been many wonderful corrections in the Globe over the years. ‘Because of an editing error, a photo accompanying a story on admitted arsonist Francis K.
Some of you may
have already seen this Chris Hedges editorial/polemic/essay, since it was
posted on AlterNet two days ago and has already inspired more than 300
comments. It's titled "Forget Red vs. Blue - It's the Educated vs.
People Easily Fooled by Propaganda." In one sense, this could come off
as the most despicable bit of intellectual snobbery since GING (or my
referring to it as such).
Mission Not Accomplished, but hey.
FireJoeMorgan.com, a site that became famous for its scathing critiques of baseball commentators, talking heads, columnists, beat reporters, and even on occasion other bloggers, has announced today that they will shut it down.
FJM was handily one of the funniest sports-related sites on the internet from its inception in 2005.
The world of snacks is complex. And supermarket shelves, with their unwavering tendency to be stocked for aisles with snack option after snack option (and imitation after imitation), offer little solace. What's tastiest? Cheez-It's or Cheese Nips? Nilla Wafers or VAnilla Wafers? Cheez Doodles or Cheetos Puffs? Where's the confused and overwhelmed snack addict to turn?
We're happy to alert everyone to this news, but it seems everyone's already aware. This was the line moments ago (photos © me):
A Spokane Vally, Wash. man was arrested for breaking into a liquor store by smashing its front window.
His first attempt to smash the liquor store's window with a rock failed, so he went up the street to a hardware store and purchased a hammer for $11. TWith said hammer, our friend successfully broke into the packie, and stole...a $9 bottle of wine.
about five years since I’ve inhaled the delicious, nutty tang of a
second-hand cigarette puffed indoors — since I’ve reclined and watched while whorls of
smoke hover and shift and dissipate through the room’s still air. I’d forgotten
what a nifty bit of atmosphere it adds to a conversation.
1. As soon as Obama uttered the words: "Sasha and Malia, I love you both so much, and you have earned the new puppy that’s coming with us to the White House," on November 4, a certain subset of people (you know, just smaller media outlets, like the San Francisco Chronicle and Reuters, and pretty much everyone else who was tired of covering real news.
Join a growing mass of human rights activists and everyday
