Thursday Night

Rock on.

Thursday Evening

Be excellent to each other.

Happy Hour Thread

It's Friday, right?

Outsider Insidery


Um, David?

The fact that people think you're an asshole and treat you accordingly is not actually more important than, say, the widespread discrimination against African-Americans in our criminal justice system.

...oh the horror....

Coming Across The Border

I do love that everyone accepts that as code for "coming from Mexico."

Hi Canada!

Oh, Orange County

Drought isn't going to empty your fake lake.
Tampering with the lake's water can be a touchy subject for some longtime association members, who chafed at the suggestion of reducing or changing the lake levels.

"We love coming down here where there aren't too many people," said Carlos Lopez, an association member whose 4-year-old daughter, Dayleen, splashed in the water. "She's a fish. I'd have to take her down to the beach, and that's a pain."

Thursday Is New Jobless Day

287K new lucky duckies.

Wakey, Wakey

Gee, you guys can't catch a break. Atrios tells you to go the fuck to sleep and I tell you to wake up.

Go the fuck to sleep.

How To Deal With A Serial Killer

Obviously we couldn't arrest, prosecute, and imprison a serial killer, especially if he promised not to kill again, so I guess we're out of options?
A mixture of new issues and lingering problems could violate earlier settlements that imposed reforms and fines on the banks but stopped short of criminal charges, according to lawyers briefed on the cases. Prosecutors are exploring whether to strengthen the earlier deals, the lawyers said, or scrap them altogether and force the banks to plead guilty to a crime.

That effort, unfolding separately from a number of well-known investigations into Wall Street, has ensnared several giant banks and consulting firms that until now were thought to be in the clear.

Maybe if we make them pinky-swear this time?

Wednesday Evening


The Most Useless People In America

The Cleveland Plain Dealer editorial board.

Such a mystery why newspapers are dying.

Sleep, Disrupted

One of those nights for various reasons, so I just woke up. Well, I woke up at 3, 4, 5, and 6, too. You get the idea.

Lunch Thread

I had a hotdog. Burp.

Shorter Reverse Frank Bruni

If only there was some way to attract smart, talented, and dedicated people to work in this profession which we think is the most important thing in the world because after all we love our children.

hint: pay them and give them job security and stop demonizing them in national newspapers for the failures of the highly paid people who are supposed to be in charge of the system

The Worst Charity

Really just never give to the Red Cross.
