"Junior Seau: Song of sorrow"

Very sad. And article contains this almost unbelieveable statement: 

Within 12 to 24 months of retiring, three out of four NFL players will be one or more of the following: alcohol or drug addicted; divorced; or financially distressed/bankrupt.

News from the party of tolerance and diversity

"Obama supporters rally around anti-Mormonism".

Nowhere is this more obvious than in the media, where pages upon pages have been devoted to Romney’s religion. Vicious, anti-Mormon rhetoric, ramping up in the final days leading up to the election, has been spread by MSNBC and CNN hosts, the New York Times (they have devoted anentire section of their website to articles about Mormonism), Washington Post, and the Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan, to name a few.

Like the Washington Generals

Only for real. The San Marino soccer team, as of 10/12/12, had played 115 international matches. They've lost 110. Tied 4. Won 1.

Against Liechtenstein. 

"Is the universe just a computer simulation? Now, we can check"

A refutable hypothesis? Now we're talking.

"4-year-old boy finds Lexus trunk latch defect"

Lexus needs to test its trunk latches better

Sad and very sad

"Congress Is Forcing The Army To Buy Tanks It Neither Needs Nor Wants".

"Why PBS Always Wins".(Link fixed. Thanks, Elliott.)

"Chris Christie: What I've Learned"

Words to remember:

If you try to play footsie with these union folks, they often interpret kindness as weakness. And you can't have that. You have to be able to perform acts of kindness to show people that you have it in you, but you also better be able to show people your tough side. If you don't, they'll try to walk all over you.

And a fine little story:

Last Saturday, I brought my first child to college. That night I was putting my twelve-year-old son to bed, and as I was tucking him in, he said to me, "Dad, do you miss Andrew?" And I said, "Sure." I said, "Do you?" And he said — this is a twelve-year-old — he said, "More than I have words to describe."Whew. So I tucked him into bed, and I said, "Well, listen, if you need to talk, you know you can talk to Dad." And he said, "Sure. You're my man." And I go to walk out of the room and close the door, and he said, "Dad, come here for a sec." So I came back in, and he said to me, "And Dad, if you need anything tonight, I'll be right here."

"Obamacare’s rhetoric vs. its reality"

You impose a financial penality on firms if employees work more than 30 hours a week, guess what happens? Go ahead, guess

"Latest in mortgage fraud: Flopping"

Go ahead, blame this one on greedy bankers, evil capitalism, or the Tea Pary. I dare you. 

Why would anyone spread possum urine around a house, turn up the heat and close all the windows for a few days?

Because they're flopping, of course.

I know our government is really powerful . . .

. . . but c'mon, this is ridiculous: "Fargo woman completely missing the point behind deer-crossing signs".
