A new video from the great folks at the Tax Foundation, and yours truly:

China to Censor Journalists' Internet Access?

I wish I could say I was surprised. If I were a newspaper editor, I would pull my reporters from Beijing.

I've never agreed with all the people who say "the international community should should boycott the Beijing games,"--but I do think more thought should be given to selecting a host anybody actually surprised this is happening?

Brickyard 400

More like Brick-YAWN 400! HEY-OH!!!

I was very excited to watch the Brickyard 400, but what a terrible show. It was kind of interesting to see the different strategies teams used in the unchartered waters of repeated competition cautions in a way--but I would hardly even call it a race.

I wish they went back to the old cars. These COT ("car of tomorrow") races aren't nearly as captivating, for the most part.

The Brickyard 400 is one of the biggest races of the season, and it was turned into a glorified tire-testing session by the COT.

Teen Witch

I just saw this movie. The musical scenes are quite possibly the best thing ever. For example...

Kotecki TV vs. MSNBC?

James Kotecki, of and EmergencyCheese/PoliticoPlaybook on YouTube, is having a "feud," of sorts, with a couple on-air personalities from MSNBC. It seems as if the MSNBC folks made some comments and James...well...take a look at his hilarity from the past two episodes:

Being called "unoriginal" by somebody reading someone else's words off a teleprompter? Odd.

If it were up to me, I'd give James a 10. I hope they invite him onto their show!

John McCain

I just came across this first-hand account of his time as a prisoner of war, first published in US News in 1973. Love him or hate him, John McCain is an American hero.

Friends' Blogs...

I recently began reading two new blogs, both of which I thought I'd share with you (and add to the roll on the right).

My friend BJ (who you may know from his co-starring roles in "Thunder Rolls: The Taco Bell Version" and "Washington Capitals: The Hockey Song") just started a funny blog about his daily dining experiences called "Lunch Abominations Made with Love." Here's the blog description from his site:

My dad bought a deli. He says business is good. He brings me lunch almost every day. What he brings is questionable at best. Here I will document some of the best culinary disasters. Sometimes they go straight into the trash, sometimes I pick at them, sometimes I eat them out of pity. I don't have the heart to tell him.

Check it out here:

The other blog is a hilariously well-written glimpse into the life of a new mom. I heard about it and went to check out the latest entry--I ended up reading the entire archive. Here it is:

Just 4 Mom

Hope you enjoy them!

July 4th

A little delayed, but I hope everybody had a great Independence Day!

As for me, I ate eleven cupcakes and completed the greatest Monopoly comeback of all time. In sum, best day ever.

I thing I used up all my good patriotic video links on Memorial Day...except this one...
