Weekend link dump for November 7

Have we recovered from the election yet?

Blogs may have finite lifespans, but I have no plans to quit any time soon.

“A historic global treaty to protect the world’s forests, coral reefs and other threatened ecosystems within 10 years was sealed at a UN summit.”

The 100 best signs from the Rally to Restore Sanity.

How immigrants create jobs.

A truly awesome photo of the sun.

RIP, Maurice Lucas.

I sure won’t miss some of the people who won’t be back next year.

What exactly makes one a bad juror? Thanks to the Attorney General, we may never know.

Where the deficit comes from.

If you’re going to claim that dead people are voting, it would help if the dead person you cited as an example were in fact actually dead.

Where the Jolly Roger came from.

Don’t mess with the man in black. Or his daughter.

Conservatives don’t care about the deficit, no matter how much they rant about it.

The view from nowhere.

We could learn a lot from the Dutch.

What’s next after this? “Mud Wrestling With The Stars”? Actually, I might watch that…

Gurning it loose.

The one thing I’ll add to what Ezra says is that if you think Democrats should have done something different, you need to specify what exactly should have been done. Don’t say “They should have focused on jobs”, say HOW they should have focused on jobs.

RIP, Sparky Anderson.

LB = TP.

Okay, creepy.
