Happy “Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike” Day, GN!

Free seats are priced right. Kinda like free love.

In either case, watch out for splinters. (Hey…that was the most Wheel-friendly of teh numerous off-color and downright crass rejoinders which popped into my head.)

I’ll be here all week; try the free kawfee seat…it flips!!1!

Is that not the most precious thread picture ever! Can’t wait to show it to Mrs Sven!

Speaking of Mrs Sven, she lost another boss the other day--her department’s Director this time. The announced reason? For “fostering a culture of deception”. She agrees about the deception part, but feels that maybe this person was the fall guy for others misbehavior.

Hai, Sven!

I see the Q1 GDP was -- unexpectedly!!!1! -- revised downward to – 2.9%.

That’s right…a great big minus sign. So let’s print some more currency, have yet another round of “qualitative easing” and spend our way to prosperity!

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa and Sven!
We had a good time at the game last night -- no splinters!
Teh Older is on his way to Bakersfield for a job interview this morning at a very large nature preserve.

In re teh GDP: I’m surprised the revision came in that negative. The talking heads on the left were tossing around numbers in the -1.8 to -1.9 range, so I figured they could spin -1.4 as a positive (“Hey! It wasn’t so bad!”)

Hey, Paddy!

Math Economics is hard.

Glad your MLB experience was splinter-free.

Good luck (and safe journeys) to Teh Older!

Just heard SCOTUS ruled unanimously that a warrant is required to search your cell phone if you’re arrested.

Every once in a while, they get it right. (Which doesn’t excuse disastrously farked-up decisions such as Raich and Kelo.)

Cops are going to hate that…GOOD!

Just made a new cell phone wallpaper.

Feel free to use and distribute…preferably without attribution. ‘Cause I’m a publicly-minded citizen. 😉

Courtesy of Government Executive magazine, we learn that the EPA -- while exhorting us about cleaning the environment and creating reams of BS regulations -- can’t keep it’s employees from literally carping in the hallways:

It appears, however, that a regional office has reached a new low: Management for Region 8 in Denver, Colo., wrote an email earlier this year to all staff in the area pleading with them to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior, including defecating in the hallway.

Guess they need even moar regulations.

In the email, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor mentioned “several incidents” in the building, including clogging the toilets with paper towels and “an individual placing feces in the hallway” outside the restroom.

Heh.

Well it does give me an idea for a new name for the Redskins: the Washington Shitters.
