Miscellany

• The Senate Republicans kill the minimum wage increase. A mere week after Congress gave itself a $3,500 raise. More to come on this...(Hint: it pisses me off)

Ozzie Guillen is in early this week for another run at Dick of the Week.

• I admit it. I don't care a bit about the World Cup. And, unfortunately, many of my favorite sites and bloggers do (looking in your direction, Pooh)

Bush's nominee to head the Corporation for Public Broadcasting has some serious D.O.W. upside.

Mac Attack: Over at slate, poor Seth Stevenson gets his panties bunched over Apple picking on PCs in their new ads. Ads which I happen to think are hilarious and brilliant. Yes. I use a Mac—one of the many reasons why I am so damn cool...

Here's To Beer: I know somebody who's going to ad this site to their links.

• Oregon unveils their ugly-ass new Nike Atari uniforms. Are the Ducks going to be playing football or Running Man?

• The Kung Fu Monkey hearts Jon Stewart. And for good reason. KFM makes a good point about hiring comedians as political consultants.

• SportswriterChad Finn already had a great blog. Now better with comments.

Oh, the aforementioned link will indeed be added, even though it is sponsored by Anheuser Busch. I'll get over it. Really.

I didn't go to far into it, and I figured it was some corporate deal, but I just like the logo and the concept...

I'll see your lack of interest in World Cup Soccer (or any other soccer) and raise you an annoyed groan over all the "American Idol" hype, which is like kudzu overgrowing the sorry excuse for pop culture we've got going on these days.

I'd agree with you on American Idol, except this time, I did watch a bit because I liked Taylor (grey-haired guy who won) right from the start. Never thought he'd win.

Overexposed? You bet.

I love me some World Cup, and you're not going to change me, damnit...
