The World Outside...


Because there actually is one.

We got a biography of Sarah Palin in at work today. It was 150 pages long. Quite a storied career, there. In other news, Anonymous is claiming responsibility for the hack on Palin's Yahoo!Mail account that went down the other day. ArsTechnica asks the important question: why the hell is a state governor using free web-based email to conduct state business?

Oh right, we're having an election, too. Yawn. On that front, Stephen Harper is saying he'll stick by Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, despite Ritz making jokes about the 17 listeriosis deaths resulting from the Maple Leaf tainted meat scandal. Ritz referred to the incident as the 'death of a thousand cold cuts.'

This is why I can't do Canadian politics. Americans make asses of themselves so much better than we do. Canadian politicians all seem like your creepy uncle.

Speaking of your creepy uncle, some Liberals are begging Stephane Dion to go the way of those who came before him, and shift his focus from the environment to the economy.

After a collective 'huh' from the peanut gallery over his VMA performance [and subsequent leaked studio version] Mr. West goes back to the lab to retweak his upcoming single 'Love Lockdown.' That's more like it, Yeezy.

In what will be the last item I post on the subject, the New Yorker has an obit for David Foster Wallace, as well as links to stories he wrote for the magazine from 1994 to 2007.

Now why did it take me this long to find the New Yorker's fiction page? Not bright, Windsor.
