Stand by Me

This is a great concept.

Loves me some Morford.

Hello, Poetic Justice / O.J. goes to prison, CEOs beg and mope, Hummers as STDs. Where are we?:

"How easily the world flips over. How stunningly everything can shift and mutate. How do you like your spectacle? How do you like your poetic justice? Full of irony and winking mischief? Or straight up, with a bittersweet chaser? Right now, we've got it all."

Daily Kos: Traditional marriage, Bible-style

A. Marriage in the United States shall consist of a union between one man and one or more women. (Gen 29:17-28; II Sam 3:2-5)

B. Marriage shall not impede a man's right to take concubines in addition to his wife or wives. (II Sam 5:13; I Kings 11:3; II Chron 11:21)

C. A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin. If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed. (Deut 22:13-21)

D. Marriage of a believer and a non-believer shall be forbidden. (Gen 24:3; Num 25:1-9; Ezra 9:12; Neh 10:30)

E. Since marriage is for life, neither this Constitution nor the constitution of any State, nor any state or federal law, shall be construed to permit divorce. (Deut 22:19; Mark 10:9)

F. If a married man dies without children, his brother shall marry the widow. If he refuses to marry his brother's widow or deliberately does not give her children, he shall pay a fine of one shoe and be otherwise punished in a manner to be determined by law. (Gen 38:6-10; Deut 25:5-10)

G. In lieu of marriage, if there are no acceptable men in your town, it is required that you get your dad drunk and have sex with him (even if he had previously offered you up as a sex toy to men young and old), tag-teaming with any sisters you may have. Of course, this rule applies only if you are female. (Gen 19:31-36)


This was a cool find in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Ex-Cal kicker blogs from Alabama:

That is, it's cool. " 'Bama doesn't believe in the L sound, at least not at the end of a word."

Such are the musings of former Cal placekicker Tom Schneider on his wry blog Bama Tom, on which he described his recently concluded football season at the University of North Alabama.

On the team's trip to Carrollton, Ga., he decided that "Florida is maliciously hogging 'Bama's coast line. ... It got me a little fired up, so I ranted to some people on the bus and got them angry too."


Preferably, deez:
