* These kids today, and their games.

* The Post has a profile in motion of freshman House Republican Ted Yoho (FL). The focus is how he’s part of the faction who forced John Boehner to trigger the government shutdown and now wants to move along to default on the national debt. How bad will default be? “I think, personally, it would bring stability to the world markets,” Yoho told the Post.

* In Conversation: Antonin Scalia.

Isn’t it terribly frightening to believe in the Devil?
You’re looking at me as though I’m weird. My God! Are you so out of touch with most of America, most of which believes in the Devil? I mean, Jesus Christ believed in the Devil! It’s in the Gospels! You travel in circles that are so, so removed from mainstream America that you are appalled that anybody would believe in the Devil! Most of mankind has believed in the Devil, for all of history. Many more intelligent people than you or me have believed in the Devil.

You know, Antonin, I believe in the Devil too — and I even know his secret identity!

* Open Letter to Everyone Who Secretly Controls the US Government: Are you okay? Do you need help?

* Why I’m calling on all university faculty to refuse to write letters of recommendation to TFA.

* No, this is Detroit.

* And over 100 long-lost Doctor Who episodes found by dedicated fans – in Ethiopia. Someone’s getting over 100 replica Daleks.

  2. Nice to know that something constitutionally relevant could be struck down by Scalia because he believes a supernatural being with horns and a pitchfork might be behind it.

    Seriously, unless there’s a post called “Witchfinder General,” he needs to not be allowed anywhere near the law ever again. He’s shown himself unfit to render rational judgement time and time again, it’s just this time he’s hung a nice big sign on one reason why.

  3. Not NPR?
    Sometimes NPR. But not usually.

    Talk guys?
    Talk guys, usually.

    That explains a lot.
