PM Linky

As I sit here watching Bill Clinton speak at Coretta Scott King's memorial service and pine for the times when a president could express himself clearly, I offer you these fine links:

--Apparently shows like CSI and CSI: Miami and CSI: Des Moines are making criminals smarter, which in turn is making pre-meditated crime easier. Truly fascinating. But my question is, if that's true, how come when people tune into The West Wing they're still apathetic morons? And how come the young women and Asians who watch drivers' ed videos are still terrible drivers?

--From the love thy alma mater files, Northwestern University President Henry Bienen had to step in and assure the world that engineering professor and lovable ol' Holocaust denier Arthur Butz is a total idiot and speaks for himself. Butz, who I'm not sure was ever born, 'cause hell, I didn't see it, made some moronic comments to an Iranian journalist recently, and I'm sure he's working on a dynamite political cartoon right now.

If you'd like to know more about NU Prez Hank Bienen, his likes and dislikes, see this interview from the 10/23/00 issue of NUComment: The man enjoys squash and tennis, Bob Dylan, Wild Strawberries, doesn't care about Disney and doesn't know the lyrics to Tony Orlando and Dawn's "Knock Three Times." Amen, Biens.

--Are you ready for an aphrodisiac soda? When I heard that "a new soda promising to sexually arouse the person drinking it will soon be available in stores nationwide," my first thought was...eh, I got nothing funny here. Nothing's happening. Let's just make this a fill-in-the-blank contest. Sound off below.

--Yes! Yes! Yes! Say goodbye to Bradway, Jets fans. And say hello to a newly minted royal Tannenbaum.

--And finally, here's another YouTube classic: "Before there was Anna Nicole... there was Elvis. Between January 20 and August 16, 1977, Elvis' doctor prescribed 5,684 narcotic and amphetamine pills to him (an average of 25 per day). This clip is a tribute to that man."

So the soda was banned in two other countries, and it's gotten past the FDA? I don't have anything funny to say either. The name of the soda is Turn on? Lame.

it's a weird day in jetland...bradway is great at evaluating college talent, and at least he's staying on in that role. i happen to know a little about tannenbaum, and have been a fan of him for a while. he did what i dream of doing...go from law school to the front office of an nfl franchise. i'm not nearly as down on bradway as others are.

how can you be so down on bradway when you thought he built a super bowl team coming into the season? i place most of the blame for the failures this year on herm. he was apparently very weak on the players in offseason strength and conditioning, which is one area in which parcells and other great coaches always emphasized as being incredibly important in maintaining a HEALTHY football team through the year.

I don't know, Poontang Pop comes to mind. Is it me, or is Florida a bastion for the absolutely absurd? Their TV stations and newspapers always report the most inane news. Yet another reason to chop it off and let it float the Atlantic all by its lonesome.
