* BREAKING: The rich are getting richer.

* ThinkProgress covers the growing Clarence Thomas ethics scandal and notes other justices have been forced out for what Thomas is known to have done.

* Empire, Nevada: The last company town shuts down. Via MeFi, which notes the connection to the Burning Man festival.

* Muppetational: YouTube has the trailer for The Muppets.

* And Hendrik Hertzberg explains the Anthony Weiner scandal.

Weiner’s sins, being wholly online, basically onanistic, pathetically “immature,” and totally without direct fleshly carnality, are literally ridiculous. They lack the swaggering macho that pushes more traditional, arguably crueler male transgressions—having affairs, whoring, fathering children out of wedlock—into the comparatively (though only comparatively) safer territory of “boys will be boys” and “men are like that.”

Let us never speak of it again.
