hair of the dog, and then some

Very well; so resilient I shall be. All I need is some of Saddam Hussein's humanitarian aid. But this is my favorite spark of brilliance from today's news:

Sources also told CNN that "Operation Infinite Justice" is the tentative name selected for any retaliatory strikes, pending White House approval. On Thursday, Rumsfeld said the name is being reconsidered because in the Islamic religion only Allah can provide infinite justice.

Also, someone's talking to Robert Kaplan about this, which is good. He is so smart. He is dreamy. The "end of Wilsonian idealism" is fairly depressing, but he's right.

Now then: two links courtesy of Chelsey. Firstly, the naked webcam girls and their wishlists, which is a whole angle that this site can't hope to compete with. I usually update right after I get out of bed, at which time I tend to look like an emaciated Jon Cryer with hair sticking everywhere. Secondly, the media pranks of Kembrew McLeod. My favorite is the one where he trademarks the phrase "Freedom of Expression" and has his lawyer send threatening letters to people:

We represent Kembrew McLeod of Sunderland, Massachusetts, the owner of the federally registered trademark, FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION ... Your company has been using the mark Freedom of Expression ... Such use creates a likelihood of confusion in the market and also creates a substantial risk of harm to the reputation and goodwill of our client. This letter, therefore, constitutes formal notice of your infringement of our client's trademark rights and a demand that you refrain from all further use of Freedom of Expression.
