Item #1: Detroit has a 22% unemployment rate. (click the link for a nice NPR audio story).
Damn. Just…Damn. Michigan as a whole has a 12% unemployment rate, and it goes up even higher if you count people who have stopped looking for work.
Item #2: Texas is up to more creationist shenanigans. Sigh.
Item #3: Michelle Bachmann. Oh, no more big scary socialism–now we’ve gone back to calling people communists:
“We are headed down the lane of economic Marxism,” said Bachmann.” (YAD wins on the coverage with best contextual use of “teabagging” in a political commentary.)
Item #4: Alan Keyes is runner up to Michelle, for…well, this, among other things:
“Obama has moved with impetuous determination to prove his claim to the mantle of High Priest of the Worldwide Abortion cult.”
Ok, back to bugs tomorrow. Just wanted to point out the Detroit story, which is very well done, and thought I’d throw in a little extra WTF for good measure.
