Weekend link dump for March 1

If this were next year, it would still be February.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Alex Rodriguez. Unless you didn’t want to know anything about him, I guess.

The prospect of Hillary Clinton running for President is helping Democratic recruitment efforts in some red states.

Just a reminder, the Duggars of 19 Kids And Counting fame really, really don’t like gay people.

“Humans have not been back to the moon since 1972. With our retreat to low-Earth orbit, I sometimes feel as though we have lost some of the globally galvanizing magic of traveling to space. But I think it is possible—and important—to recapture it. My conviction is not simply about space exploration as a foreign policy tool. It is also about doing valuable science.”

So what is the difference between corned beef and pastrami, anyway?

Former SNL cast member and current (Democratic) candidate for Congress Gary Kroeger writes about his experience at the “SNL 40” event.

“That’s right folks. Instead of learning about the basic concepts of modern capitalism, players can disembowel their enemies, raise dragons, and avoid White Walkers — all in their quest to sit atop the Iron Throne.”

“In all seriousness, the Rudy story is a bummer. It’s not easy to love America and hate half the people who live there.”

RIP, Donald Keough, who led Coca Cola through the New Coke debacle.

Google makes like Facebook and bans sexy content on Blogger-hosted blogs.

Of course there’s a Fifty Shades of Gray royalties lawsuit. It would have been surprising if there weren’t such a lawsuit.

Have you been missing Pee Wee Herman? Well, then, I have good news for you.

Poor CPAC. Hashtag campaigns are hard.

Of course legislative cliffs are back. They never went away, and they’re not going to as long as the modern Republican Party is in control of Congress.

Mighty big black hole you got there.

RIP, Leonard Nimoy. Truly, he lived long and prospered.

RIP, Earl Lloyd, first black player and coach in the NBA.

“Researchers from Cambridge University and Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science are claiming a stem cell research breakthrough that would allow a baby to be created from the skin cells from two adults, no matter their gender. This potentially allows for infertile couples to have their own children without resorting to sperm or egg donors, and may provide the means for same sex couples to produce their own babies.”
