Beltway Traffic Jam

My last day telecommuting for a bit. Back to the office and traffic tomorrow. Possibly having lunch with Cam Edwards as well.

The Tuesday linkfest:

  • Kate McMillan contends that Alanis Morisette’s pseduo nudity had more to do with Canadian sense of inferiority than censorship.
  • Kevin Aylward has the Bonfire of the Vanities back on Wizbang.
  • Steve Verdon reports that Al Franken’s show “isn’t very good.”
  • Jeff Jarvis wonders whether bloggers could win Pulitizers.
  • Spoons explains why GWB is JFK.
  • Atrios spots an amusing–and fast–Andrew Sullivan flip-flop.
  • Bill has a caption contest at INDC.
  • Jen has decorated her site in some hideous plaid in celebration of a bastardized version of St. Patrick’s Day.
  • Matt Welch posts on paying child support for someone else’s kids.

    Hey Jen, are you going to stand for that?! How about you, Ith? I do believe the man just insulted Tartan Day. Sheesh…

    What can ye expect – the man’s nary a drap o’ Scots bluid in ‘im: it’s plain t’see.

    Have some mercy on the puir soul… he’s probably Irish mair’s the pity 🙂

    I’ll admit that the plaid is a bit hideous – it’s orange (and it’ll be gone tomorrow). But to claim that Tartan Day is a bastardized St. Patrick’s Day – that goes too far!

    Sure, St. Patrick saved Ireland from a bunch of snakes. But the Scots declared independence from a worse bunch of snakes – the Brits. And our own US Declaration of Independence derives directly from the Declaration of Arbroath.

    And you know, we Scots have a much better brogue.
