I Got Nothin'

The New York Times is cutting 500 jobs. Analysts do not expect the paper to stop sucking, however.

Harry Reid has promised to vote against the confirmation of John Roberts as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The only surprising thing about this is that the New York Times is surprised by this news. Since November of 2004, Reid has apparently made some drunken wager with his friends that he could out-Daschle Tom Daschle but not lose his job. Considering he barely edged out John Ensign five years ago, I think we can bid farewell to Mr. Reid. Anyone who lacks the political savvy to discern that Roberts is going to sail through doesn't belong in elected office.

Madonna reportedly ... wait, I don't care enough to link that one.

The ACLU is reportedly coming to the defense of this guy, claiming that the government is chilling his right to dissent.

I cannot in good conscience recommend the movie "Andromeda Strain." Maybe it was a great flick back when it wasn't so technologically dated, but that ship has clearly sailed.
