I know Patton Oswalt is not well-liked around these parts… Heck, apart from his role as Remy in Ratatouille and his epic Star Wars rant on Parks [...]

European Kleptocracy

Everyone’s favorite British Member of European Parliament, Daniel Hannan is at it again… tilting against his favorite windmill. From the Daily Mail UK:

Viewed from Brussels, the Westminster expenses crisis looks Lilliputian. Call that a scandal? Bath plugs and massage chairs, patio heaters and lightbulbs? How paltry. How quaint.

Still Hypocritical

Vote Dry… cuz your Congressman was going to wet his whistle anyway… serf. From The Atlantic:

In a yet-to-be-gentrified area of Northeast D.C., a nondescript warehouse was unusually lively last Saturday afternoon. Inside? A spirited bottling party.

The Ivy City warehouse is home to New Columbia Distillers. Started in 2012 by Michael Lowe, New [...]

HHS Secretary Sebelius Resigning

This is what passes for accountability these days. A good, if long overdue, start. From ABCNews: The president will nominate Budget Director Sylvia Burwell to replace her.

Sacrifices Must Be Made

William Blake (1809), The Flight of Moloch — one of Blake’s illustrations of On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity, the poem by John Milton

What do you do with rubbish? You burn it of course.

The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used [...]

Key and Peele and Truth

One of my pleasures in 2013 was getting to appreciate the humor of comedy duo Key and Peele on Comedy Central and via YouTube (natch). In Time (remember them) Magazine’s “Ideas Issue” they have an op-ed about humor and political correctness. Here’s a bit

But what we strive for–and what we think more people should [...]

Not Lovin’ It

A couple old enough to be fritz’s slightly older siblings was recently kicked out of a McDonald’s for sitting too long.

The pair were enjoying their regular routine of a mid-afternoon McDonald’s snack they call “scrunch” (between supper and lunch), when they were stopped by an employee cleaning up. Ms. Becker told WTTG Fox 5, [...]
