Interesting Reading in the Interweb Tubes

  • The magical land of NRAnia [1] (“In this land, guns do not kill people. People kill people. Guns are suspiciously present at a number of these incidents, but their friends swear that they were not involved. They just have bad timing[.]“)

Batshit Craziness of the Week

  • A Tennessee man took his bulldog to a shelter to be euthanized because he concluded the dog was gay [2].

Bookish Linkage

Nonbookish Linkage

  • In case you were wondering, calling your doctor “a real tool [14]” isn’t defamatory, at least in Minnesota.
  • A person has to have their priorities in life [15], even at a young age.

I’ve come to believe cable news is slowly killing us, giving us intellectual emphysema, cancer of the mind.
