Tuesday odds and ends
Cartoons and whatnot
- In no particular order:
- Was just half-listening to NPR (WNYC's the Brian Lehrer show), and I think he just quoted a news story as saying that the Saddam trial has "more scoops than a Ben and Jerry's ice cream store." Are we that desperate for metaphors these days? Have we been taking our Spunk and Bite a little too much to heart? (As a disclaimer, I actually bought that book this weekend in an attempt to punch up my writing).
- Keith Knight celebrates the high profile of black women in Hollywood.
- Matt Bors designs some fashionable technology to keep the women of South Dakota on their backs.
- Leilah Rampa gets impatient.
- M.e. Cohen diagnoses Milosevic.
- Ted Rall jumps on the hipster-bashing bandwagon, but I know for a fact that he loves Soft Cell more than the kids in his cartoon, who are probably way more into the Decemberists or Fiery Furnaces or some other such indie rock troop. I actually have no idea what the Fiery Furnaces sound like, but I did read a cartoon about them the other day that claims they are "nigh-incomprehensible".
- You might notice that today's Boondocks contains the link to Granddad's Myspace profile, and I am proud to note that I am currently one of his Top 8 friends. Really, go look.
