* From Cathy Seipp’s year in review:
I discover I’m included in some lefty blog’s nominations for world’s worst blogger. By “worst” what these types really mean is “rightwing blogger that most gets under their skin.” But naturally I’m pleased to be there, even if I’m only mentioned as having a “head like a Q-tip.” (Too big? Too small? I guess it’s a reference to my hair.)
* “Fake but accurate” is kinda played out, notes Jim Treacher. Click to vote on his alternatives.
* Hmmm. Looks like Australian authorities are just as oppressive as those Homeland Security guys who don’t investigate Mao readers. (Speaking of which, Josh Tinley writes: “When I think about my first reaction to the [Little Red Book] story, I find it absurd that, as someone who cares deeply about civil liberties, I was so excited to report on an incident in which those liberties were apparently violated.”)
