Forget It, Jake, It's Blogville

Cheaper Than Therapy Can a woman feel lust for a truck?
The Anchoress reads carefully and finds "This book is filthy dirty!" Then she reads between the lines.
Bill Peschel John Cleese undergoes surgery "The good news for all Franz however, is that the infected bit which has been cut out by the surgeon, will be offered for sale on the website in the next few days."
BlameBush! asks "Would You Hit a Grieving War Mom With Glasses?" [We report, you decide.]
Achenblog: "I can't help but notice that Science asks us to believe in things we can't see. Quarks? Never seen one. Black holes? Ditto. Circulation of the blood? Seems to me it just pulses in place. Earth spins on its axis? Not that I can tell....."
Wizbang takes a long, hard look at the new "girly" condoms.
Radio DavidByrne is currently running a stream of really great hits from the 60s. Impeccable taste.
Banterist finds Apple guilty of "Homophone neglect, a misdemeanor." But fails to comment on The Penguin Movie. Loss of down.
Chris Lynch's A Large Regular, -- "stool pigeon."
badscience, the blog: Ben Goldacre's Bad Science column from the Guardian and More…
Ace of Spades allows that Elizabeth Edwards now feels a connection to Cindy Sheehan.
Rober Cadenhead @ Workbench wants Idris Elba cast as the new James Bond, completely ignoring the fact that I am available and will take the call.
AdScam/The Horror! : "Hunter went off in style yesterday. His ashes were fired from a cannon on top of a 150 foot tower at his compound in Aspen. Celebrating the occasion, guests included Sean Penn, Lyal Lovett, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Johny Depp, who paid for the cannon." [Ed: I would have tossed a buck in the hat to see that too. Years ago.]

I had a look at the Bad Science website. The interesting thing is that the Guardian is very much in favor of Kyoto, etc. But Goldacre never once --and I checked his archives-- mentions "global warming" as a subject of inquiry, in spite of the dubious science invoked by so many GW fanatics. It's the 500-lb. gorilla in Goldacre's parlor.
