Good reads/random cool sites (1/30/2008)

I dislike hyperbole, so "heartbreaking" isn't an adjective that I toss around much, but I don't know what else to call CV Rick's memoir of Alma the Lamanite. It's so good, i.e., so painful, that I'm almost sorry I read it, if that makes sense.

In his State of the Union Address Bush asked for $20 per poor child and $287,000 in tax cuts per millionaire. Since the number of poor children and the number of millionaires is roughly equal, Greg Palast asks, why not give each millionaire $20 and each poor kid $287,000?

I'm really not sure why, but there's something about an extremely foul-mouthed robot insulting people that just cracks me up.

The funniest "lol cat" ever?

  1. Thanks, Kuri. It took me a couple decades to get the perspective to write it.
