It’s not so much that I want the Patriots to win the Super Bowl—although I do, I’ve lived in New England—as that I really don’t want Eli Manning to have the satisfaction of taking them down.

Vanity plates I have seen.
In honor of tonight’s football game.

What I’ve learned: Questioning the validity of the Ohio State-LSU [football] game as a true national championship game will inspire a certain segment of the population to write mean-spirited e-mails accusing you of belittling “how hard these young men have worked” to achieve their goal of a national championship.
No “A” for effort, people. Good to know the sportswriters got our backs.

Would someone please write a meta-article on the coverage of Tim Tebow, white quarterback at Florida who is out-rushing practically everyone? Rushing is frequently considered the province of black quarterbacks, coded “athletic”. Tebow just set records for being the only Div I quarterback to both rush for and throw more than 20 touchdowns, apparently, and might win the Heisman. I really want to know how this is playing out.
I also really want to know if the off-the-grid/survival/prepare-for-the-apocalypse people are buying the One Laptop Per Child. I don’t know much about the OLPC, and presumably if there’s an apocalypse the net will be down, but if you are already stockpiling gold and MREs, a laptop designed for the developing world seems like it might be a worthy investment. Cheaper than gold.
