Links For Friday

Stuff to read:

Nate McMillan's Blazers were the best team in the league immediately after timeouts. Fascinating piece in the WSJ. (Courtesy the WTB).

Pakistan is sending Afghan refugees home. An incredibly sad story. The UN agrees with me.

After robbing a bank and getting away, should you really try and get on public transport for free? (Hint: the answer is not "yes").

Hey, if athletes can use steroids, why can't scientists use brain-enhancing drugs?

The News tells us that our "Foreing" Minister has refused access to the NCA to any foreign officials. I mean, foreing officials.

Nicholas Schmidle, one of our favorite journalists, returns. He's in Saudi Arabia now.

Despite largely being right on every big question concerning America's security, Obama is being slowly cast as the "wimp" candidate. I swear to God, if the Republicans win this year, the Democrats should fold up and quit. I'm not even joking. They really serve no purpose as a political party if, despite everything being in their favor, they can't pull it out.

Hahahahaha. The Wednesday poll took a week off without informing anyone. Rumour has it that her husband left her for a younger woman, so she's sort of disappeared and didn't come into work this week. We tried calling and paging her, but she seems to have vanished. She did send us an email though, saying she'll be back next week.

also, i dont miss the poll as much as the poll analysis (but dont tell her that, shes hurting enough already)

Are you making fun of my poll analysis? If you are, you should know the only reason I recap the results is for posterity's sake. Blogger does not archive polls, so we like to have a record of (a) what the questions were, and (b) what the response was.

naqiya said...

not at all. i think your analysis is great. truly.

Oh, whatever.
