What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Four on a Thursday

Look! Jim Hines just got a fab deal on selling two books. You go, Jim!

The ever famous new shopping bag designs. This is a designer meme. Some of them are quite good, some fall into the "just WTF were you thinking" or "you think this is funny" category, some are of the "you have to hold it just right to get the effect", and some may not be work safe for you (YMMV), all of these might be seen on the street, so your choice.

Reason number one why you should learn your history correctly. So you don't make an ass of yourself. Dear Senator Barton, Davy Crocket was killed at his Alamo. Did you really mean to say you'll be a martyr for your cause? You do know Christian martyrs don't get those 70 virgins, right? (Actually, neither do Muslims, it's a corruption of the Assassin/Hashshashin legend where the Old Man of the Mountain would get his agents high on hashish, show them a "Garden of Earthly Delights" and promise if they did die, they would be rewarded in the afterlife).

Oh, so those were the programs the conservatives wanted to cut. Well then, we're good to go. Sigh.
