The ludicrous skytop zeppelin hat — :: wants :: (Thanks to danjite.)

Jan. 2, 1860: "Gentlemen, I Give You the Planet Vulcan"

The end of space tourism as we know it — Not enough seats on the bus, apparently.

Property rights and the Tragedy of the Commons in action — A letter from the poorest county in Oregon.

Huckabee's Blood-Lust — "...it's disconcerting to think 'You didn't kill anyone' has suddenly become a criticism in conservative circles."

Should Ron Paul be allowed at Sunday's debate? — It's so cute when conservatives fight. They're certainly all about minor candidates when it's Nader or some Green candidate siphoning liberal-progressive votes.

Mukasey directs US Attorney and FBI to investigate CIA tape destruction — I'd really, really like to think the Bush Administration is actually doing the lawful and moral thing for once, but I can't help but wonder if it isn't just a matter of doing the coverup yourself to ensure it's done right.

An old quote from Pat Robertson — And people wonder why I think religion doesn't belong in politics:
