I wonder if Tonya Harding will make another sex tape with her new husband?

Also, the Guardian article on the death of the American novel was a bit pedantic, I thought.

Also also, Happy Independence Day!

You're calling Jefferson a hack because he accidentally wrote "subjects" in a draft of the Declaration, wiped it out with his thumb, and then wrote "citizens" over the smudge? You're nuts. That's way more badass than just writing "citizens."

I"m sitting at Union Square drinking a doppio from Il Caffe.

It's bright and sunny. I am wearing a red shirt, faded beige pants and bluish New Balance shoes.

I am the Last American.

There are no iPads here. Only netbooks. Everything is a sham, if you see beneath the camouflage.

More appropriate to your surroundings, @3:
Honey, it's all drag. Cop drag, priest drag, wrestler drag, geek drag, drag drag. It's all drag.

Here's a happy fourth of July to all of you and to think about what freedom really means, and why its so easy to take it for granted and the danger of doing so.

So let me make sure I have this..... Jefferson composes the greatest document in history and will be remembered forever, and he's a hack, and when your internship runs out and you're either writing a blog no one reads or working for I Can Haz Cheeseburger, you'll still consider yourself a writer. Got it.

@8: Don't count on TJ being remembered forever, what with Texas taking him out of their history classes. Fucking Dumbfuckistan.

We Can't All Be Spider-man...

Instead of focusing on expensive solutions that they immediately refuse to anyone without insurance coverage, perhaps, doctors and hospitals could learn to be more practical. ...I dare to dream.

For example, instead of denying the use of an essential wound healing device like a wound vac machine, which are expensive machines that cost a patient about $100 per day to use (give or take other, added charges), perhaps we could fund brilliant projects like this one from an MIT student who has developed a $3 manual, wound vac machine.
