Militia nut openly calls for Obama`s assassination on FacebookAnd what troubles me the most is when I see crazies like this fueled by every Republican conspiracy from Benghazi, to bitherism, to Obamacare, to guns. Words have consequences, and a number of us have said for a while that while no sane person would listen to conservative hate-talk and pick up a gun, but we’re a bit country, and I’m not worried about the sane ones. The crazy ones can all too easily get a gun as well.

No, no.

"The Mesoamerican god Quetzalcoatl is one of those great all-purpose deities — in contrast to, say, Verminus, the strangely specialized Roman god of cattle worms. "

This is my favorite sentence of the week.
