Ta ta for now

I’m heading out for a friend’s wedding in wild and exotic El Paso. Be back late Sunday night, and Zeitgeist will probably try to entertain you until then.

Me? I’m taking Neal Stephenson’s Quicksilver with. Nothing like a 1000 pager to keep you busy on plane trips.

    The Russians have killed Kyoto.

    The head of the Russian Academy of Scientists sys the only people who would be affected by the abandonment of Kyoto “would be several thousand people who make a living attending conferences on global warming”. Bwahahaha!

    They’re refusing to arrest a Zimbabwean accused of torture because it’d cost too much. Such moral clarity.

    The usually liberal Slate has a pretty convincing defense of the Maha Rushie: statistically, McNugget is much worse than Tampa’s Brad Johnson, and he ain’t exactly hawking soup. OTOH, I’m still not convinced it’s a pure race play: the media more or less leave Daunte Culpepper alone despite his NFL-leading QB rating. Perhaps it’s his proximity to the man sportswriters consider Satan Himself, Randy Moss?

    Moreover, Bill Maher not only defends Rush, but he’s pretty funny doing so! (both via White Glenn)
