    I am watching David Letterman right now and I have just seen the most bizarre thing in my entire life. Paul Anka doing Nirvana's "Smells like Teen Spirit" with a swing beat in front of a big band. I think the end of the world is nigh.

    17 February 2008 ( #Current Affairs )

    Sen. Chuck Schumer certainly is fond of the word "internecine" in reference to the Democratic Party's selection of a presidential candidate. Scary thing is, I knew what he meant. :-P Sunday's Meet the Press guest list - Meet the Press, online at MSNBC-...

    06 March 2008 ( #'Sconsin stuff )

    Life in Wisconsin just took a break for the press conference, carried live on probably every single station in the state. Those of us who weren't already crying in our cheese curds shed a few during Favre's emotional goodbye. It sure was a fun run, wasn't...
