Another Friday so it’s time to post all the things you missed if you logged on to this here site every day this week to find out what’s going on in the world and instead found one measly post.
The most wanted man in America (since the death of Osama bin Laden) was arrested. Whitey Bulger, notorious Boston kingpin, was arrested in Santa Monica on Wednesday. The last two most wanted men in America both worked closely with the US government (bin Laden with the CIA in Afghanistan and Bulger with the FBI for years helping them dismantle the mafia, because the FBI likes Irish mobsters better than Italian ones). Maybe CIA and FBI officials will learn that using sociopaths will usually not turn out the way you might have hoped.
The House of Representatives rejected Obama’s measure to authorize U.S. military action in Libya, with a whopping 70 Democrats voting against the President’s proposal for a final vote of 295 to 123, and only eight Republicans voting in favor of the measure, although they might have been busy sexting pictures of their genitals and not realized what the vote was about. Many Congressmen are angry at the Obama administration for taking action without seeking their approval, a move Republicans say violates the Constitution’s 1973 War Powers Resolution. Obama now realizes that it is best to follow the W. Bush playbook and just do whatever the fuck you want and don’t bother to ask Congress for approval at all.
The NBA draft was held with probably the worst draft class of the last ten years, ensuring that Cleveland with the 1st and 4th picks will continue to be fucked by LeBron James for years to come.
The Winklevoss twins are suing Facebook. Again. They finally dropped their appeals of their last suit and are now suing again. These two just won’t give up the ghost. What is it about twins who are men that makes them downright creepy? The Winklevoss twins. The Sedins. Those tennis playing twin brothers.
The Florida Marlins hired 80 year old Jack McKeon to be their manager. Hopefully they play a lot of daytime games so that Jack can still catch the early bird special and be in bed by seven-thirty to catch Matlock reruns.
