Reuben Flagg, Your Life Is Calling

My former employers have summoned Orville Redenbacher back from the grave to pimp dat popcorn. Can Donald Sutherland be far behind? Oh, wait, he's still alive...but so was Reuben. (Lileks)

One of the founders of Greenpeace tells other enviros it's time to leave the loggers to their logging and quit lying about endangered species. (Kate)

The Mount Soledad cross stays; atheist plaintiff in its removal suit dies. ACLU promises to bash on regardless against the new owners of the veterans' memorial, the VA. (Relapsed Catholic)

I blame John McCain for starting this shit. Now Dennis Kucinich wants to get in on the Straight Talk"Free speech for me but not for thee" Express and bring back the "Fairness Doctrine". I guess if you can't beat 'em in the marketplace of ideas, you can always legislate them out of existence, eh Dennis? (Instapundit, though I actually saw the post by Captain Ed first.)

The price of regular up here is under $1.95/gal at a number of places, and some folks think it's not just the warm weather. Does seem interesting that the Saudis don't see a need to cut production even though the price of crude is lower than it's been in over a year. Maybe the sheiks are doing W a favor by sticking it to Chavez and the Iranians, both of whom need oil revenue. Maybe it's a subtle yet unspeakably evil plan by our Dark Lord. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

On that note, I'm calling it a night and crashing early.
