Dear Discovery Channel:

Your new song is very cute. Catchy, even. That’s the problem. It’s stuck in my head. It has been for the last 48 hours. I will require you to come remove it now. Thanks, pdb.


10:13 Ben Winograd – The Court has released the opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller (07-290), on whether the District’s firearms regulations – which bar the possession of handguns and require shotguns and rifles to be kept disassembled or under trigger lock – violate the Second Amendment.

Today’s The Day!

Got my morning OJ, got the munchkin on my lap, got my SCOTUSBlog loaded up. All I need to do is wait 2 hours like a moron in line for an iPhone to find out if I’ll need to surrender my lead launchers or place an order for some machine guns. As usual, reality will […]

That’s My Boy

Ladies and gentlemen, my offspring, in all his demure glory.

My Internets Be Broked

New Firefox = teh win! But not being able to install Adblock Plus (Not yet compatible with 3.0) = teh suck. There are all these ads all over commercial websites! Has it been like that long? Everything takes so long to load! Why do people put up with that?

Squeaky got there first, but I’ve got more to say. I’m sure you’ve heard about this appalling story out of California: TURLOCK, Calif. — Police killed a 27-year-old man as he kicked, punched and stomped a toddler to death despite other people’s attempts to stop him on a dark, country road, authorities said. But if […]
