Links for Tuesday: 4 days without an East River helipocter crash!
I guess the missing ingredient at E Bway is human waste. We have everything else, and heaps of it!
In any case, it's good to see the Dems showing some semblance of backbone on this.
Notable titles that come to my mind are The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, The 25th Hour, The Fortress of Solitude (though come to think of it, neither "Kavalier & Clay" or "The 25th Hour" are that recent).
Speaking of "The Fortress of Solitude" - I was reading it last night on my way home and looked across the train to see an old lady reading it as well. I'm surprised that doesn't happen often since I see people reading books I've read before all the time. I see Me Talk Pretty One Day, Running With Scissors and AHWOSG quite a bit, and I've spotted All The Shah's Men a couple of times.
As amazed as I was by Horry going ridiculously unconscious, I can't help but be frustrated by Rasheed, my favorite Tar Heel. I can't think of a more frustrating athlete in all of sports.
Also, good bye, Shav! We hardly knew ye.
Now, I'm not so completely heartless that I don't feel any sympathy for Jerry Maguire, and those Punk'd-style celebrity prank shows do get old after a while. But why is the stunt still a story? Why are they still talking about assault charges? "I really work hard to make people feel good"?? Does Maverick not understand the concept of pranks? Are Scientologists afraid of water? Why do I ask so many rhetorical questions?
Oh, and help save public broadcasting from the chopping block.
