8/31    Awesome editorial cartoon on the Opus controversy
        \_ Is this old news?  This seems like it is years old.
           Maybe it's not.  Inflammatory Islam cartoon is so old
           and boring.
           \_ The opus thing is current.
        \_ Correction: boring editorial cartoon on WaPo's ridiculous
           decision. The original Opus cartoon is much better:

11/6    Four more years!
        \_ Yay! I look forward to 4 more years of doing absolutely nothing.
           It's a much better outcome than the alternative, which is 4 years
           of regress.
           \_ Can't argue with that.

12/5    Romney is right after all -- our military does need more horses and
        bayonets!  Romney for 2012!
        \_ I'd never considered Romney's campaign as an ad for Revolution,
           but I guess that makes as much sense anything else.
        \_ The tax cut removal is ill timed.
        \_ holy crap. This is scary. US troops are most vulnerable as it is

5/16    Can anyone tell me what Greece is hoping for by rejecting austerity?
        From here it seems like the austerity is a pretty generous attempt
        to keep Greece from imploding entirely.   Are they hoping the
        Germans will put them on eternal state welfare, or what?
        Also, why would an outright default mean they must leave the Euro?
        Is it just that they won't be able to pay basic gvmt services

        San Jose and San Francisco... not a surprise. Northern Cal
        is still the best place to live.
        \_ What are you talking about? San Jose was 6th (above SF) and
           SF was 15th. If you rate "best place to live" as "best place
           to find a job" (which I don't) neither of these qualify and

5/28    Washington Post Correction:
        The May 27 editorial "The President's Pick" incorrectly referred
        to Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as the daughter of
        "immigrant" parents. Judge Sotomayor's parents were not immigrants
        but were born in Puerto Rico after passage of a 1917 law that
        automatically conferred U.S. citizenship on island-born residents.

        \_ Good thing the legislature passed the biggest tax increase in

Washington Post, Other Newspapers Won't Run 'Opus' Cartoon Mocking Radical Islam. Jerry Falwell without incident one week ago was deemed too controversial to run over the weekend because this time it took a humorous swipe at Muslim fundamentalists. The Washington Post and several other newspapers around the country did not run Sunday's installment of Berkeley Breathed's "Opus," in which the spiritual fad-seeking character Lola Granola appears in a headscarf and explains to her boyfriend, Steve, why she wants to become a radical Islamist. The Washington Post Writers Group syndicates "Opus," and the Post is the cartoon's home newspaper. The syndicate sent out an alert about the two strips in question, according to Writers Group comics editor Amy Lago. com that the strips were shown to Muslim staffers at The Washington Post to gauge their reaction, and they responded "emotionally" to the depiction of a woman dressed in traditional Muslim garb and espousing conservative Islamic views.
