Wednesday, Wednesday.

* Why is Boing Boing giving valuable blog real estate to global warming denialism? I see Cory has admirably tried to push back against the guest blogger, but still. What a sad day for Boing Boing.

* Michael Bérubé just took the GRE Literature in English subject test again. And lived to tell about it.

* Rethinking plagiarism? Sorry, but this isn’t that hard. Students know exactly what they’re doing when they plagiarize. Turn them over to Judicial Affairs and don’t think twice.

* Ten privacy settings every Facebook user should know.

* Joe the Plumber is now advising the GOP. WTFRepublicans?

* Fimoculous has found Wikipedia’s list of lists of fictional things.

* The New Yorker’s Hendrik Hertberg was not impressed with Obama’s first inaugural. More shocking still is the unabashed anti-Hindu prejudice expressed in a demand that they be listed last in the litany of religious belief, even after hated atheists. Via Edge of the American West.

Joe the Plumber Goes to Israel

Sometimes I get the impression the right-wing doesn’t take the world very seriously.

Joe The Plumber is putting down his wrenches and picking up a reporter’s notebook.

The Ohio man who became a household name during the presidential campaign says he is heading to Israel as a war correspondent for the conservative Web site pjtv.com.

I’m sure there’s something about this is not totally ridiculous.

He tells WNWO-TV in Toledo that he wants to let Israel’s ”’Average Joes’ share their story.”

Aha, of course! Now it all makes sense.
