* I hope someday my admirers are moved to unearth my terrible college fiction: Wes Anderson’s “The Ballad of Reading Milton” (1989).

* The true size of Africa. Also has the true side of Australia and the USA as a bonus.

* Liberal blogs are trotting out cell phone effect again. Looks like it’s time to call November for the GOP.

* “In these challenging economic times, it’s good to know you can get some financial protection for unexpected illness and injury to your pets,” the e-mail reads before listing the many benefits. Federal Employees Can Purchase Health Insurance For Their Pets, But Not Their Same-Sex Partners.

* Running it up the flagpole: Wheel of Fortune‘s Pat Sajak argues at National Review Online that public employees shouldn’t be allowed to vote in at last some state and local state elections.

* And in twenty years, we’ll need another Earth to sustain us. Time to get building.

  1. I suppose I’m a little late to comment on Sajak’s rambling, but here is my two cents anyway:

    When the state I work for has a budget crisis (like this year and the next two), there are two major options to get back to even – cut spending and raise taxes. In my case that means my salary/benefits/etc get cut, but then I am taxed more heavily on what remains. Every move is likely to impact me two fold and for that I should get less power to vote?
