By Senator Chuck Hagel, R-NE

We have misunderstood, misread, misplanned and mismanaged our honorable intentions in Iraq with an arrogant self-delusion reminiscent of Vietnam.

Glad to see the Republicans finally face reality. Although it sounds kind of hollow now that they're no longer in power.

Hop Scotch

Where I will be today: Hop Scotch Spring Beer and Scotch Festival.

Update: The beer selection was mediocre, the food was passable and the woman giving us scotch tasting tips compared scotch to hot wings. Overall, a C+.

Now With 20% More Placenta!

I don't pretend to understand women's hair products. I'm astounded every time I walk though my drugstore's hair product aisle. There are creams to straighten hair, sprays to lighten, conditioners to add "volume", and rows upon rows of small boxes of dye featuring disembodied heads with hair blowing in some unnatural photo studio breeze. But yesterday I saw what was perhaps the weirdest product of all: Henna 'n' Placenta.

Yes folks, it contains real animal placenta , for that right-from-the-salon look. On the one hand, props to them for putting the word Placenta in big bold letters, and not giving it some fruity name like "Nature's Goodness (may contain placenta)". On the other hand, why the cute 'n'? Is it an attempt to soften the blow that you're dousing your head in real animal placenta?

News Flash: Pong Is A Hit

From the March 3rd BBC News Front Page:

Does the BBC understand video gaming?

Judging by that 90s-era graphic, I'd say probably not.
