28,779 words and naked tango

  • BOOK UPDATE: Editing, editing, editing. I expect to finish up my first draft of the second part by Sunday. Then I will take the day off to celebrate John Peel's birthday and start in on the third part on Tuesday. I have no idea why I am explaining this to such a degree -- I doubt very much anyone is marking his or her calendar.

  • So, wait. Doing this is somehow wrong?

  • Note to thieves: When the police show up at your door, don't answer whilst holding what you stole.

  • One is inclined to believe that the admission standards for the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith are not very high.

  • I learned today that three-point line in Olympic basketball is three feet closer than the line in the NBA. That makes it even more depressing that U.S. players can't shoot threes -- a factor that came into play today when the U.S. was knocked out of gold-medal contention with a loss to Argentina.

  • Meanwhile, in other heartbreaking Olympic news, Paula Radcliffe -- the great British marathoner -- fell out of the 10,000 meter race.

  • I love the idea behind this blog -- celebrating Olympians who come in last. Hooray failure.

  • Personally, I'm not a huge fan of comedian Tom Green, but he has a blog and I have to admit that it's cool to see a "celebrity" blog. And it is sort of amusing that he loves to use his audio blog feature so much.

  • Here's your Jerry Springer moment of the day.

    In the naked tango story...

    "[p]olice told The Ann Arbor News for a story."

    As opposed to telling them as a secret? Or just for kicks?
