But seriously, I had a great Thanksgiving and I hope you did too. Today is also the first Sunday of Advent, the preparation for Christmas. Huzzah!
Here are a few quick hits that I found interesting over the last few days, but didn't have time to write about:
- Sen. Mary Landrieu (D - Chevron) basically dismissing the dangers associated with offshore drilling in front of a picture of the catastrophic oil spill off Australia. Money quote: "The fact is, these things happen." Okay, Mary. Let's see what "just happens" to Louisiana tourism after an Australia-magnitude oil spill.
- From NYT: Use of food stamps is on the rise, and the stigma associated with them is disappearing. One in eight Americans and one in four children are now fed by the once-scorned "handout." A troubling sign of the times.
- There was supposedly a minor earthquake in the Amherst/Nelson County area of Central Virginia last week. I say supposedly because we know earthquakes are a hoax. The liberal elite "seismographs," which are paid for by Al Gore and George Soros, showed a 2.5 magnitude earthquake last Wednesday. Lies. The rumbling was actually caused by Hokies on tractors rumbling up 29 towards Charlottesville. When will the media learn?
