Amusing Headline of the Day

by Steven Taylor on 28 September 2009

TweetVia the LAT:  Lions win (and that’s not a typo) Of course, not so amusing if one is a fan of the Redskins (but amusing to everyone else, especially fans of the Cowboys…).

Football 1959

by James Joyner on 16 September 2009

Mad Men Jumping the Shark?

by James Joyner on 9 September 2009

TweetThree weeks ago, I wrote “Mad About Mad Men,” explaining why the AMC series was the hottest show on television.  So far though, both my wife and I have thought season three has pretty much sucked.
