Sorry about no blogging yesterday...I had a huge piece half-finished about why Americans feel we have a right to be immortal in the context of the New York Times
article about the difficulty in recruiting subjects for clinical trials. But it ended up not making sense, and I ran out of time, and duty calls.
But the world doesn't stand still just because I have to go to work, so here are some fun tidbits until they put up Keith Olbermann's masterful Worst Persons from tonight, which, when taken in conjunction with Sunday's New York Times
article revealing the alleged peace agreement between Olbermann's and Billo the Clown's corporate masters, either gets him fired or it's the greatest piece of synergistic viral marketing I've ever seen.Skippy has some good stuff
about the supposed "Kenyan Obama Birth Certificate." I wonder what it's going to take wingnuts to recognize that there's now a thing called the "internet" and that anyone with half a brain can debunk utter horseshit like this. Now remind me again why ANYONE takes these idiot "birthers" seriously?
Somewhere along the line, we forgot our fifth blogiversary on July 31. Five friggin' years I've been at this.
