Don’t let me die here:

— Whale penis leather is not just for weird Russian cars it’s also the subject of Chapter 95 of Moby Dick.

— Someone replaced Mickey Kaus with this fellow making smart points about Fox News.

— Innovative new forms of dishonesty in conservative climate bill opposition.

Tim Lee and Kerry Howley are both making sense, but the upshot is that the most persuasive form of libertarianism isn’t really libertarianism at all.

— What’s good for Goldman Sachs is not necessarily good for the rest of us.

If you want an actual example of a much-loathed song that’s actually pretty good, look not to Creed but instead to Evanescence and “Bring Me Too Life”.
