Weekend link dump for November 17

The original Addam’s Family set photographed in color. Not altogether ookie at all.

Can we agree that a sports team shouldn’t be called The Arabs, please?

The Willie Nelson corn maze. How is it we didn’t have one of these before this year?

“What these social conservatives don’t understand is that we just don’t give a crap. We, as a movement, have no more craps to give.”

“The awful state of American evangelical Christianity after Billy Graham”.

“So here’s the scenario: The NFL doesn’t exist. Pro football is starting anew in the United States. We don’t really know which markets like football more than others, so we can only go on playing the percentages with market sizes and hope for the best. The new league has hired me (at a lucrative salary, of course) to come up with a projection of where teams should be placed, what the divisional alignments should be, and what their team names ought to be.”

So I guess the difference between the 60 Minutes story on Benghazi and their story on Dubya and the National Guard is that no one is being held accountable for the Benghazi story. Of course, no one is admitting they did anything wrong with that story, so I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised.

“Imagine enjoying a seasonal drink at a Christmas party without the risk of a hangover the next day, or being able then to take an antidote that would allow you to drive home safely. It sounds like science fiction but these ambitions are well within the grasp of modern neuroscience.”

Dan Amira listens to Sarah Palin’s new audiobook so you don’t have to.

The only known photograph of Albert Einstein deriving his famous E=Mc^2 equation.

Does Richard Cohen still have a job? Seriously, why does Richard Cohen still have a job?

Wendy Davis is in your Parks and Recreation. Symbolically, anyway.

In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco of Spain Andy Kaufman is still dead.

You’ll be happy to know that the dustup between the Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County and the Tattooed Hippie Pirate Mommas over the latter’s pinup calendar has been resolved with no hard feelings on either side.

RIP, Ming the Mollusk, 1499-2006.
