I've been good about sharing some of these over in the Fast Lane, but I'm so far behind on the news today that I'm just gonna have to cut my losses.
* Frank J. explores the pros and cons of replacing Barack Obama with a cardboard cutout of... Barack Obama. Seems like it'd be a win-win proposition to me...
* Get the low-down scoop on what "TWAP" is. I guarantee you'll be hearing about this in the befuddled pages of the New York Times in a month or so.
* Some improvement in Prince William County's residential code enforcement? Hey, it's all fun and games until someone opens up an illegal apartment building in the home next door to you.
* The reason the Washington, D.C. Metro Area has completely escaped the impact of the current recession? Federal employees are now making upwards of $170,000 per year. Believe it or not, this is far above what I make as an EVIL D.O.D. CONTRACTOR for the BUSHITLER/OBAMA WAR MACHINE. Strange, ain't it?
* I can't believe I haven't seen this sooner: A 100-year-old "upside-down" monorail. In Germany, of course.
* Unintended Consequences: Those fancy-schancy new energy-saving LED traffic lights are completely useless during winter storms. Of course, 99% of "Green" technology is 100% useless, anyway, so it's not like it's that big a deal, right?
That's all I've got for now. I'll let you in on a little secret, though -- If you want the latest and greatest news that I don't have time to write about (but think you'll enjoy anyway), you can follow the Fast Lane's handy-dandy RSS feed.
It's like living inside my head. Except with a newsreader.
