Briefly Noted


  • Courtesy of The Wife, who says that this is worst headline ever, and I am not inclined to disagree: Student Slain to Death Near U of Chicago. This is a tragedy, of course, and we should not be making fun. It is also sad that the student was killed.

  • Courtesy of homie Michelle: not a hoax, freerice.com exercises your brain and donates food. Only follow the link if you have time to kill. Warning: after 200 or so words, you'll start to see repeats.

  • i dont see how bad it is?
    (i mean, sure, anyone getting killed is not good)

    but is it the "near (yo)U ?" that is what is so inappropriate?

  • I object vociferously to "Slain to Death."

    If you're slain, you're dead. There's no other type of slain, except maybe in "The Princess Bride" where Westley is only mostly dead. :)

    It's sort of like saying "I closed the door and shut it" or "The bomb exploded and blew up".
