Various & Sundry for the Weekend

by jhwygirl

Seems little Trig has been a very very busy little boy: Scrubbing his mom’s Wikipedia entry. And example of “Young Trigg’s” edits? How about adding a Weekly Standard article, titled “The Most Popular Governor” while removing citations to a Wall Street Journal article titled “Alaska’s Palin Faces Probe”?

Here’s a good before and after, courtesy of Wikipedia. Thank you NPR.

The Arizona Central has some interesting comments from its readers on McCain’s pick.

This is a good article on the effects of biofuel production and its disruption of food supplies.

There was quite an uproar earlier this week of the DNC’s stage set for Obama’s acceptance speech, yet nary a mention of the similarities to George Jr.’s state set of the 2004 RNC.

Obama’s acceptance speech made it to over a quarter of all American households. That’s over 38 million – larger than the opening ceremonies of the Olympics and larger than the audience for the final American Idol (yep, folks, that’s how we measure these things), where the winner is announced.

It was actually larger – Nielsen doesn’t count PBS and C-Span.

Hmmmm, wonder what the average size is of an American household?

Utahan’s like to drive cheaply – Natural gas, at 87 cents a gallon.

It’s a long weekend for many. In perusing this nations newspapers, I’m shocked to see the word “food crisis” and “food bank” in so many. How about taking some time this weekend and clearing off the shelves of some canned good for the local food bank? Put it out in the middle of the floor where you can’t miss it, and get it downtown on Tuesday.
