Krauthammer seems to think that John Tyner coined the euphemism “junk” for his genitals. He deserves credit for what he did, but not for that… the Weedwhacker is a bit out of touch, isn’t he?
The mad woman that Californicators just re-elected to the Senate compares our policy on gays in the military to that of North Korea, Iran, and Pakistan. Let’s see…we don’t allow out homosexuals to serve in the military, and they don’t allow out homosexuals to live. One of these things is not like the other.
The pens that Pres__ent Øbama uses to sign bills which require money borrowed from China are made in…China. Khruschev, sales, rope; some assembly required.
Terry Mattingly fisks the NYT on dissident “Catholics” in Belgium.
It’s totally bizarre to say that “in the view of Rome” these independent believers are not Catholic priests who are leading Catholic rites.

Do what needs to be done.
Atlas is shrugging. My microfilm score project has been stalled at Preservation because of a shortage of microfilm leader. Sharlane is having a difficult time finding any. Now, this is essentially just 35mm film without photochemicals. One could in a pinch use somebody’s reel of old porn shots, though that would be confusing to the patron expecting a collection of motets. Yes, digitization is becoming ever more popular, but film isn’t totally obsolete.
TSA even screws with our soldiers. Money quote:
This might be a good time to remind everyone that approximately 233 people re-boarded that plane with assault rifles, pistols, and machine guns–but nothing that could have been used as a weapon.
