The Morning Blog

It appears as though things might be calming down someone on the Korean peninsula, hopefully everything will be great in time for Spring Break!

The Scott sisters who were sentenced to life in prison for taking part in the robbery of $11 are now free. A few pretty big questions remain: Is it constitutional to mandate that someone donate one of their organs as a condition of their release? Also, who exactly will be paying for this operation? The sisters clearly do not have the funds to cover it.

Here's something close to my heart: Long distance relationships are difficult. Very difficult. However, technology assists in so many profound ways.

Speaking of which, hey Sarah are you reading this? Mom and Dad really want you to get on Skype or some other video chat service.

Having done my duty as an elder brother...

Here's a piece about the dangers facing Pakistan's Sufis. Definitely worth reading. I think that people tend to view Islam as a monolithic belief system without any sort of diversity outside of the strife between Shia and Sunni. What's forgotten are smaller groups like the Sufi who by all accounts, are a pretty groovy bunch.

Outside of the pistol-whipping, at least they were polite.

Troy Polamalu would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Considering how he's been playing on the field, perhaps more Steelers should consider taking up fasting.

Enough with the waterworks already! Seriously Boehner, get a hold of yourself man!

I'm not-so-secretly phobic about pigeons. I think they're disease carrying hell-birds with crazy homeless people eyes. They give me the screaming willies. So what does Animal Planet do? Naturally, they take my phobia and combine it with Mike Tyson. Thanks Animal Planet. Thanks loads. So much for being able to sleep at night.

Good boy! Seriously. Wow. Almost scary wow. If you're someone that owns a dog, you might want to consider buying him or her a dictionary.

For the love of God. I thought this was over with. Sigh...Once again, I am compelled to write about Four Loko. Now people have figured out how to turn the crap into ethanol. That's right. Your car is going to be running on this turd brew.

On a personal note: Four Loko is back on the shelf at the store. Not surprisingly, the first person to try to buy some didn't have an ID.

They might be little more than human bumper stickers but who the hell doesn't love a good t-shirt?

On a far more serious note, this is a perfect example of why euthanasia needs to be legal. I can't imagine how devastating this must be for the family.

Bill Murray doing stuff.


The rest of the world doing stuff.
