It's a day when the Brian Lehrer Show gives me a new reason to turn off my radio for 15 minutes. Because how stupid is this idea? Let's all call in and put a meaningless phrase in front of one thin, utterance guaranteed to have no depth and convey no knowledge. Waste of air time.

So Woodstock's trees planted in India will remove a certain amount of CO2 over their lifetimes, & that balances the same amount emitted by the city over...what? The lifetime of the trees? One year? If it's the latter, I hope they're going to plant more trees every year. And I hope they're reducing their CO2 emissions as much as possible.

It's a day when "the Arab Spring" begins to smell a lot like "the Mediterranean Basin Fall". Pity!

A day that I am now officially more afraid of my government than any potential terrorist. (More NSA spying cover ups and Greenwalds partner beig detained for no reason)

It's a day when long-term problems like climate change continue to not make the front page.

A day when many becry the prevalence of "fables and fairy tales", yet the Ford Focus is marketed to them using Vampires.

Bad enough that a pitcher threw not 1, or 2, or 3, but 4 times at a batter...bad enough that his manager didn't stop him after the first behind-the-body 'warning' pitch.....bad enough that the drunken bums in the crowd cheered every attempt to hurt a batter...bad enough that the ump didn't issue a warning on the first pitch....but the fact that the ump failed to take any effective action to protect a batter who clearly was being thrown at shows that MLB will let any pitcher at any time throw at Arod.

The entire incident from start to finish was shocking & disgusting, from the fans right up to MLB leadership.
