Most of you know what a fan I am of Keith Olbermann. The latest issue of The New Yorker has a profile, titled One Angry Man: Is Keith Olbermann Changing TV News?. I know the answer, but of course I read it anyway.

A rare male seadragon is pregnant. Apparently this is normal. Aquarium officials altered the lighting and thinned the plants to create mood.

Yellowstone National Park officials have moved the 45th parallel line. For safety reasons. The one that I remember had been 3/4 of a mile south of the correct position. The newly-relocated marker is 1/4 of a mile north of the correct position. Apparently, the correct position is unsafe too. Screw them – next time I’m taking my GPS with me, with its super-duper antenna, and figuring out where it is for myself. If you can’t trust the park service, who can you trust? Trimble, that’s who.

Cherie Blair, wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, said that her and her husband’s heart “sank” upon hearing of George Bush’s victory over Al Gore in the 2004 presidential election.

I found this website, listing foreclosures in Missoula – or any other zipcode you decide to put it. I also looked at Bozeman (13), Helena (30), Great Falls (116), Kalispell (74), Butte (1) & Billings (125). There were 69 foreclosures in Missoula last Friday. This morning there were 61.

On that note, Steve Iskeep of NPR interviewed author of Bad Money Kevin Phillips. The book theorizes that the American economy is in danger because of its reliance on financial institutions as an industry in and of itself – the most dangerous of all pyramid schemes. He goes into the history of the fall of the European economies, and the lessons learned there. Phillips was a senior strategist for Richard Nixon’s 1968 campaign, and wrote bestseller American Dynasty, about the Bush family, along with American Theocracy, which exposes the extremism of today’s republican party, along with its greed and fiscal irresponsibility. He is, obviously, very much pissed off at Republicans.

…which gives me a segue for this: I discovered late last night that my beautiful gorgeous pooch is a toilet drinker. Here I was thinking I had plumbing problems, coming home to low water levels in the toilet. I guess I should be relieved, but honestly, I am ashamed. Where did I fail?
