and all around you
was beauty you could measure
against any beauty that there is

* RIP George Carlin.

* Top ten conservative idiots. excerpt:

10. John McCain

"And finally, last week I noted that John McCain is a serious luddite - when asked by an interviewer whether he uses a Mac or a PC, he responded, 'Neither. I am, I am a, er, illiterate that has to rely on my wife for all of the assistance that I can get.'

"Well it's a good job that Cindy is on board, because last week the John McCain Facebook page launched its debut application and there's now no doubt that come November McCain is going to snatch that youth vote right out from under Barack Obama's nose.

"After all, who wouldn't want to get a taste of John McCain's Campaign Cribs? The Campaign Cribs application gives you all kinds of exciting facts about the Straight Talk Express, such as:

* The Straight Talk Express has a shower that's never been used.

* Every member of McCain's advance team has to know how tall the Straight Talk Express is, so they don't get it stuck under a bridge.

* They store luggage underneath the Straight Talk Express, just like a regular bus.

* It has a 550 horsepower engine, just like a regular bus.

* The McCain campaign likes to "roll in style" so the Straight Talk Express has "eight tires sitting on 22 inch rims." Just like a regular bus.

"When you're done with the Campaign Cribs video, don't forget to check out McCain's newest Facebook application, Pork Invaders. No, it's not a title from the Straight Talk XXXpress DVD library, it's an exciting videogame where, according to CNN, players must...
...dodge incoming projectiles from flying pigs. If a user takes a hit from one of the application's pigs, the user loses one of the three lives granted at the beginning of the game. How do you kill the flying pigs? By shooting off vetoes. With each pig killed by a veto, users rack up millions of tax dollars as their score, and progress to the next level.
"You know what, I think I'll stick with Grand Theft Auto IV thanks."

* "Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money." -- George Carlin

My only real quibble with that profile of Berman is this:

"After a serious suicide attempt,"

I really didn't know that there were non-serious suicide attempts!
