Mexican church half-buried in lava — (Snurched from Dark Roasted Blend.)

Terrible Yellow Eyes — Sendak!

On the whole, it was a good colonoscopy — Hahahahahah. (Thanks to goulo.)

Video Surveillance on the Fly: Heres Looking at You! — This must be a hoax. (Thanks to danjite.)

You Should Get Out MoreLiving abroad gives expats greater creativity in problem solving, according to new research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. I've always thought that if every American had to spend a year or two abroad, we would have a very different and far stronger country — greatly improved and significantly more progressive politically and socially.

Suddenly it's OK to call a judicial nominee a racist — More principled consistency from Your Republican Party and the Liberal Media.

Californias crisis and the collapse of the Republican Party.The Edge of the American West with some political history. Their thesis mirrors what I've said about the GOP and the Christian Right for years. Playing into fear and hatred might be a great short term electoral tactic, but it's horribly destructive long term political and social strategy.

My word, the whole mess about Sotomayor has been hilariously awful. I actually received a panicky email claiming she was part of the Mexican Mafia.

I'm sort of embarassed to be sharing a species with some of these folks sometimes.

I've always thought that if all Americans could afford to get to go abroad for a year or two, our country would be a better place.

Of course, being able to afford to doesn't necessarily mean that people would. So you'd have to mandate it as well.

But a lot of us who would if we could don't because we can't.
