Fantasy Book Critic is giving away a set of Mainspring and Escapement

Toonopedia — For all your cartoon trivia needs. (Thanks to lt260.)

Snow's Barbecue, Lexington, TX — Mmmm. Brisket. (Thanks to my Dad.)

What will globalization do to languages?

Some discussion of the McClellan memoir — My favorite bit is when he describes the Bush White House as "propagandistic, disconnected from reality, dangerously insular, allergic to transparency." Ambinder refers to this as a caricature, while I would call it a life drawing.

Clinton, Florida and Michigan — A reminder that she was for the stripping of the Florida and Michigan delegates long before she was against it. Useful reading if you're a Clinton supporter concerned about the alleged cynical disenfranchisement of the delegates in those two states.

Gore Vidal on JFK, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama

U.S. Experts Bemoan Nation's Loss of Stature in the World of Science — Thank you, conservative America, for this one. We may be a generation recovering, if we ever do. Hope you guys are proud of yourselves. Was it worth the votes?

Time in saddle: 0 minutes (still recovering from surgery)
Last night's weigh-out: 0
This morning's weigh-in: 261.2
