Link of the Moment
Morbidly romantic, Mix Tape for Dead Girl. A bit enigmatic as well. Though when I stop to think about it, it's probably cooler to read about than actually hear, being mostly conceptual in nature, so maybe it's good it's not going to be listened too to much.

Political Quote of the Moment
"Until then, we've got an Ichabod Crane economic policy--headless, and galloping wildly on a horse named Tax Cut."
--Slate article from last week. I think that was before GWB picked his canidates, but the article called it ahead of time, none of the guys are very impressive or confidence inspiring.

Poll Results of the Moment
A really big poll shows much of the world becoming disenchanted with the USA, surprise surprise.

Quote of the Moment
"If Jesus Christ played baseball he would be the best ever; but if Babe Ruth was the Messiah the Catholics would have beer and hot dogs at communion."
--Bill Engvall...people use it as a retort to hypotheticals along the lines of 'but if X was still in the game, things would be totally different'. Still, I think I like it more for its sound than its sense.
