Best tweet of the weekend:
@discovietnam: Watching the Jets is like watching True Blood: interested to see what happens each week but I know better than to get emotionally invested.

Maybe Atwood's turnip could form an alliance with Michael Moore's ficus!

To the producer: But it's still not clear in the description for that segment that comments are being taken there, & there's no link to the it's-a-free-country site.
