Oui, J'aime blog!
In the beginning
There was darkness on the face of the deep
The links that keep it shinin'

"HOW ABOUT A PAIR OF PINK SIDEWINDERS/AND A BRIGHT ORANGE PAIR OF PANTS?" Put down the GQ and step away from the Vogue! You need Rev. Tony's Summer 2002 Fashion Special! You could really be a Beau Brummel, baby, if you just give it half a chance!Thursday, July 11, 2002
DONCHA MISS COLLEGE? I'm a bit late on this, but I do believe that the Laughing Boy had just about the most interesting weekend in the blogworld! I mean, Canadian strippers, fetching co-eds and pissed-off, literature-mangling ex-girlfriends? What more does a guy need?
DROP THAT REPORT OR THE BEAR GETS IT: The World Wildlife Federation and their Chicken-Little keening have driven mild-mannered, Ken-Layne-putting-up-with Laura Crane to new heights of panda-beating fury!
DOWDY DOWD: Yeesh, it is dead out there! Formerly amusing columnist Maureen Dowd rips off a moldy quip, and from the blogosphere, ... silence! (Well, except for a bit of credulous snickering from a couple lefty bloggers) Yesterday she said: "Can a Bush — born on third base but thinking he hit a triple — ever really understand the problems of the guys in the bleachers?" Oooh! That sharp wit! Sound familiar, anybody? A quick Google finds that this chestnut was famously said in 1988 (or maybe 1992!) about George the First by (pick a colorful liberal): Tom Harkin, Ann Richards, Molly Ivins or Jim Hightower! Also attributed to a Jim Boutin (er, Jim Bouton, perhaps?) in regards to George Steinbrenner! Also Barry Switzer! Methinks it was one of those age-old Texas cracks that didn't break out until it hit the national campaign circuit. Good work, Maureen! Way to be on the cutting edge!Sunday, July 07, 2002
