http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2007/09/11/2007-09-11_joel_klein_vows_probe_of_queens_schools_.html - I've said it before and I'll say it again: "Zero Tolerance = Zero Intelligence"

http://www.populistamerica.com/impeach_and_indict - You're damn right America is going to flip the channel back to American Idol and go right back to sleep. Where the hell do you think you live? In a country with an actual IQ, and some actual courage? GTFO!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lz-PxpPGXo - See previous item, Re: IQ of America. (Can I nuke DC yet? PLEASE??)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/09/11/AR2007091100544.html - Now that is pretty damn fucked up right there.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,,2166974,00.html - Again I ask: where are these women? Anyone know them? Introduce me?

http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/entertainment/reviews.nsf/book/story/3F8CDD1B4D0F872086256EC9007931DC?OpenDocument?referrer=reddit - What a buncha whiners! Turn off the TV and go outside once a while. Everyone's so damn politically correct. Also, get off my lawn! Or I'll rattle my walker at you! ;]

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/e1281bc8-604c-11dc-8ec0-0000779fd2ac.html - Petro-dollar, meet cliff. You two have fun now!

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/24813.html - ScrewAttack's top ten 2d shooters. What was I saying about my lawn and my walker again?

There was interesting article in the Colorado Daily today about how Harley-Davidson is trying to get more women to buy motorcycles. Though I'm with them in spirit, I wish it was Kawasaki or Yamaha doing it instead of H-D. I know a lot of people like the whole retro look, but even the new Hardly-Ablesons are horrifically overpriced, and the old ones are a maintenance nightmare as well. We'll forget about the whole power/weight ratio thing, since only adrenaline-junkies like me give a damn about that stuff - most people are in it for the image.

P.S. Dark City rules.
