Catching Up

Wow, I'm glad I didn't miss this on The Onion's Newswire this past week:

Narcissist Thrilled To Find Symptoms In DSM-IV
In more serious news, following Josh Hamilton's latest relapse ESPN reports that the Texas Rangers:
have hired Shayne Kelley as a major league staff assistant and part of his duties will be to support Josh Hamilton, general manager Jon Daniels said Tuesday night.

Daniels said that Kelley has already started in his position and accompanied Hamilton to New York on Monday as the slugger saw two doctors, one with MLB and one with the union. Daniels said he's expecting a full report on that meeting within the next few days.

The meetings with doctors were Monday, a week after Hamilton said he had "three or four" drinks during dinner in Dallas and then had more drinks later that evening. Hamilton apologized Friday without taking questions about what happened, saying he had a "weak moment" that stemmed from "personal reasons" involving a family member.
Found this quote on The Daily Dish. Perfect for this every four year insanity we are in (for all of the every four years, I am afraid):
“Political language—and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists—is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind," - George Orwell in “Politics and the English Language."
And thanks to Wired Science for posting a number of videos of the earth at night from the ISS. This one goes up the East Coast of North America from the Gulf of Mexico:
