Weinergate quote of the day

June 1, 2011

I’ve been avoiding* the whole Weinergate imbroglio, but this line from William Jacobson’s Legal Insurrection made me laugh:

We don’t expect much of our politicians, but we do expect them to know if they’ve taken pictures of their own crotches and uploaded them to yfrog.

We live in strange days, indeed, when something like that can be written in all seriousness.

*Other than a few jokes on Twitter. I’m weak, I know.


North Carolina’s Nanny-Stater of the Month

June 1, 2011

Yes, this month’s award goes to a busybody in the backyard of my blog-buddy, ST. Now, you may think you want your hamburger rare or medium-rare (1). You might even be looking forward to it.

Well, forget it! Nanny knows best what you can eat, so nothing less than (flavorless) medium for you, Bub!

Presenting Reason.TV‘s Nanny of the Month for May 2011, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources:

Thank goodness the State is there to make the choices we can’t be trusted with. 

(1) FWIW, I’m a “rare side of medium-rare” kind of guy.
