* You know who else loved gay soliders? That’s right.

* BP failed to provide protective equipment to the volunteers who helped in the initial cleanup of the Deepwater Horizon spill. Of course they did.

* Great anti-BP, anti-right-wing political cartoon from Tom the Dancing Bug: Lucky Ducky in “Slick Deal.”

* Progress: we now live in a world without (new) Hummers.

* Meet Ardi Rizal, a two-year-old Sumatran baby who smokes some forty cigarettes a day. The government has offered to buy his parents a car if he stops, but they claim he gets too angry without smokes.

* A Duke University archive of television advertising has gone live just in time for my Watching Television class to use it.

* Film Studies for Free does Wes Anderson.

* And here’s a neat video of Airplane! side-by-side with the original 1950s film from which its script was apparently directly lifted, Zero Hour!
