Well how about that…

Lex got a big, fat block quote on the front page of Crooks and Liars today. And in a strange twist of fate, the author of the post also included a classic Sesame Street clip to help make the point.

Hunter S. Thompson used to say, “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” I may have to amend that quote to include “mean” and “sarcastic”. Mean and sarcastic is a niche i can fill.

  1. Well done! Do you know what my first cynical thought was about the Underpants Bomber? A ploy to get us to accept those horrible full body scans.

    Just a few weeks before UB hit the scene much ado was being made in Seattle because we are about to get five of those machines after the first of the year. http://www.seattlepi.com/local/412606_naked24.html

    Then today I see in a Reuters feed this: http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6020TQ20100103?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+reuters/worldNews+(News+/+US+/+International)&utm_content=Google+Reader

    I don’t know, but Whyhawk’s S&R piece may come true yet!

  2. Maybe we should just put the whole country on lock-down: nobody in, nobody out.
