These links were not brought to you by FEMA...
Lamentations of the Father. A classic from The Atlantic. I know this is a linkpost, but I'm going to quote a little anyway:
For we judge between the plate that is unclean and the plate that is clean, saying first, if the plate is clean, then you shall have dessert. But of the unclean plate, the laws are these: If you have eaten most of your meat, and two bites of your peas with each bite consisting of not less than three peas each, or in total six peas, eaten where I can see, and you have also eaten enough of your potatoes to fill two forks, both forkfuls eaten where I can see, then you shall have dessert. But if you eat a lesser number of peas, and yet you eat the potatoes, still you shall not have dessert; and if you eat the peas, yet leave the potatoes uneaten, you shall not have dessert, no, not even a small portion thereof. And if you try to deceive by moving the potatoes or peas around with a fork, that it may appear you have eaten what you have not, you will fall into iniquity. And I will know, and you shall have no dessert.
Just For The Record, by Dwight Meredith. In late 2002, Dwight Meredith wrote a series of post on his weblog, P.L.A., comparing Democrats and Republicans in those areas in which Republicans claim to excel over Democrats - budgets, size of government, and so on. Because his weblog is on Blogspot and therefore not always reliable for finding archived material, Avedon Carol did us all the favor of collecting them and publishing it all on her site.

An important Abe Vigoda update (thanks, Patrick!).
Whither Jessica Simpson? Yeah, I can't believe I just wrote that, either.
OMG. Houston's messiest apartment. That may be the grossest thing I've ever seen - do NOT click that link if you've just eaten or are about to eat. I think even Kim and Aggie would run away screaming. Via Swamplot.Posted by Charles Kuffner on September 28, 2008 to Blog stuff
