Easy riddle to solve

ABC News wonders why people don’t realize the economy is actually doing great. Somebody got a mirror for them?

  • Scientiists discovered that immersing plants in extremely high levels of CO2 makes them grow faster. I’m shocked, *shocked* by this development.

  • I can’t drive 75

    Texas raised the limit on the world’s most boring stretch of freeway (I-10 basically from mid-state to the New Mexico border) to 80 mph, which is freaking out the usual nanny-state suspects.

  • Ted Nugent vs. the UK MSM

    For a bit of a backgrounder on how lame the UK is now, they’re considering banning sharp knives now because murders with them have become an epidemic since they confiscated all the guns. You might imagine old Ted has some fun at their expense. (Link fixed!)

  • Helen Thomas goes down again

    She started going off on Tony Snow, but he was more than capable of handling her.

    UPDATE: The tastefully named Ian has video. Now that I’ve actually seen it, I have to note that Tony was really enjoying this, a lot more than it came off in the text transcript.

  • Katrina’s real failure: the press

    Mississippi (which is run by conservative Republicans) is back open for business despite actually taking more direct damage from Katrina. But you don’t hear that reported much.

  • Don’t mess with Marines

    This story turns out about how you’d expect – 5 guys with guns jump a Marine with a knife, the Marine wins. Neal Boortz was screaming bloody murder about it on the radio this morning because the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s headline was the rather more inflammatory “Marine kills pregnant robber”.

  • Nearly 1/2 of Americans now believe stuff like this, incidentally. Anyway, the latest: a group of shape-shifting Jewish space aliens (Mel Brooks, call your office!) are involved. Really. Because that makes way more sense than the “official” version where some turbaned tumblef**ks hijacked airplanes.

    Also, I repeat my standard challenge to such theories: please produce any of the dead passengers in good working order. I’m sure Ted Olsen would love to see his wife alive.

    The IDF got 4 Pallies while they were setting up rockets. Note especially that an AP photographer was *watching them set them up*.

  • That media bias

    Hizballah in Lebanon (under control of the Iranians) fired rockets into Israel today. The IDF, naturally, bombed the camp the rockets were fired from. Guess how the MSM reported it? The LA Times’ headline was particularly deceitful, but they all suck.
