That’s Not Cool, Man!

Hi, everyone. It is a pleasure to be back in these hallowed blog-halls.

I have very little to say about the British parliamentarian who offered a bounty of £10 million for the capture of President Obama or George W. Bush. I guess I should denounce it? Does it even rise to that level, or is the abject stupidity so overpowering that any mention of it contains an implicit denunciation?

Okay, whatever. Hey, British parliamentarians: Stop encouraging people to kidnap our president!

Stay tuned for meatier fare (I hope). If you like anything that you enjoy, then you will probably find my blogging palatable.*
