Quote of the Moment
From the cries of Sinn Fein to the whines of Jackie Mason, everybody's got an agenda and everyone thinks he or she is right. Trying to change someone's mind usually becomes an excercise in futility, so it is your job to pretend to care. Offer some tepid advice and move on. Cultivate the Switzerland of your soul and remain delightfully detached.
--Janeane Garofalo, "Feel This Book", co-authored with her one time boyfriend Ben Stiller. I really like that "Cultivate the Switzerland of your soul and remain delightfully detached" line.
News of the Moment

Creepy Clown. Looks like a little quiet web meme-- wouldn't be surprised if it blossoms into another "All your base", though it lacks a really catchy hook. What is it that can be so disturbing about clowns?
