sweet buddha on a cracker, do you have disembowel yourself on youtube if you're caught drinking in that band?

Do giggling gay geriatric German geophysicists greet Greek Gods germinating geraniums gleefully?

Shocking news that gun therapy might possibly be sub-optimal as a treatment for PTSD.

I respect Nate Silver as much as anyone (well, maybe not as much as Fnarf), but just a couple of weeks ago he was predicting a New England/Seattle Super Bowl. I think his math models may need a lot more fine tuning when it comes to predicting team effort and results vs. team potential.

I'd never heard of the guy before he made the news last night, but isn't it unusual for vets to essentially boast about their kills the way he did--at least so publicly? People usually use words like "the mission" or "my service," don't they?

Southwest airlines just posted support for the Ravens on Facebook.

First time I've heard of a national corporation declaring for one team over the other!

Item number...TWO!

Has anyone noticed that even big news organizations are paying less attention to editing. Not only are grammatically incorrect sentences allowed in articles on ABC News, CNN, and others, but sometimes the words come out absurd (the way someone dashing off a comment might write):

Example:

“The group recently put out a report card on the nation’s schools, where just two states – Louisiana and Florida – earning the highest grades, with B-minuses.”

Like Zoe Barnes (House of Cards) editor (she leaves the pseudo Washington Post to work at a pseudo Politico, Gen Mmmie blog) says, get it out fast...

Whoppeee doo dah, "Obey Authority" clowns....

Except sgt_doom calls it for the Bmore Ravens --- will Wall Street stooge Silver be correct, or will the notoriously correct predictions of SD once more win the day!

Stay tuned, gullible ones, and we shall see. . . .

Tidbit for the day:

Who is David Cohen?

The Department of the Treasury's Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, appointed by Mudede's fave fellow, President Brock Obomber. And he worked at two interesting shyster firms prior to this most recent appointment.

Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP

In the late 1980s, Hale and Dorr partner Jerome Facher successfully represented Beatrice Foods in a suit by eight families from Woburn, Massachusetts who claimed that Beatrice, along with W.R. Grace, had polluted the town's water supply, resulting in an elevated number of leukemia cases and immune-system disorders.

In 1986, Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering represented corporate raider Ivan Boesky in high-profile Department of Justice and SEC proceedings, as well as multiple class actions based on his alleged participation in insider trading violations.

Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering represented Swiss banks accused of profiting from the Holocaust in their settlement negotiations with plaintiffs. The firm also represented Siemens AG, Krupp AG, and other German companies accused of exploiting forced laborers during the Nazi era.

Since 2005, WilmerHale has represented Senator William Frist with regards to an SEC insider trading investigation.

Miller, Cassidy, Larroca & Lewin LLP

Which was merged into Baker Botts on 01/2001 (That would be James Baker's shyster firm, 'natch!).

Suitable source, your friendly neighborhood Wikipedia!

The story that intrigued me today was the popular reception received by French President, Francois Hollande in Mali by civilians. While the verdict is still out, it seems likely that the Islamicist Rebels will be removed. This is another exercise of French power/intervention in one of their former colonies. This one may go well.

While reading the JZ Knight article, this song kept running through my head.

@3 Ha ha. Still funny. I think I'm the only one who's noticing. Yesterday was lesbians. Today it's gays. Tomorrow bisexuals? That one's harder. You're running out either way.
