  • Worth more than a couple 'heh's: Google Future News checks out the Ron Paul presidency.
    Citing market forces as "a more powerful deterrent than mutually assured destruction" President Dr. Paul announced a bold plan to sell off more than 600 Minuteman and Trident nuclear missiles on the open market.

  • Also amusing is this actual news item:
    In a move that might make some people scratch their heads, a loosely formed coalition of left-leaning bloggers are trying to band together to form a labor union they hope will help them receive health insurance, conduct collective bargaining or even set professional standards.
    Radley Balko scratches his head. Shawn Macomber was actually on hand at YearlyKos:
    Yesterday I attended a workshop entitled, "A Union for Bloggers: It's Time to Organize!" during which a moderator posited, "I think all bloggers, in one way or another, view themselves as professionals" and a woman bemoaned the travesty of her and husband's inability to quit their jobs and become full-time bloggers because the "social safety net is in tatters." In other words, Why won't society foot the bill for her hobby? Better organize!

  • Black humor, but I couldn't help but snicker:
    Either way, man, that is not good way to die unless your name is Michael Vick.
    [But it wouldn't be too funny if it were you being mauled by dogs, would it?—ed. No, I guess not.]
