It's on. It's off. It's on again. It's off again. It's on again. A Swedish prosecutor now says she wants to seek the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after all, another twist in a rape case that's been simmering for months.
That shit is spreading. God-scorned Haiti's cholera outbreak has extended its tendrils into Florida. The disease, of course, is hard to spread if you wash your hands, don't touch your poop, and have a safe water system. But, then, this is Florida...
I'm rubber, you're glue, etc. Fox News' jowly boss, Roger Ailes, says NPR is run by a pack of Nazis. He also calls Jon Stewart "crazy." He also pleasures himself while watching film of Sarah Palin. (Hi, omnipresent Fox News Big Brother lawyers! That last one was a joke!) Previously, Ailes said Obama hasn't been "very successful."
Don't make "you're fired" joke. Don't make "you're fired" joke. Don't ... YOU'RE FIRED! Damn. Ugh.

As for Mama Pitbull Cougar Grizzly Lipstick Reality TV Star? "I'd take her on."

It was "accidental." For 18 minutes on April 8, 2010, 15 percent of ALL INTERNET TRAFFIC ON EARTH was re-routed through the servers of a state-owned Chinese telecommunications company. Among the gems? E-mail sent from the Department of Defense, NASA, and the U.S. Senate.
HEY, BLAZERS FANS! Stop weeping into your homebrew, already. And be here tonight when Rob Simonsen live-blogs all of tonight's hot, hoops action.
