Our friends at Untamed Beer get in shape for bathing suit season by doing a taste test between Michelob Ultra and Gatorade. A must watch for sure.
David Brooks Op-Ed on the GM situation is full of wonderful smarmy goodness.
Some companies are in the steel business, some are in the cookie business, but General Motors is in the restructuring business. For 30 years, G.M. has been restructuring itself toward long-term viability.
But if you are in the restructuring business, you can’t let these stray thoughts get in the way of your restructuring. After all, restructuring is your life. Restructuring is forever. Restructuring is like what dieting is for many of us: You think about it every day. You believe it’s about to work. Nothing really changes.
Today, G.M. and Chrysler have once again come up with restructuring plans. By an amazing coincidence, the plans are again insufficient. In an extremely precedented move, the Obama administration has decided that the best time for possible bankruptcy is — a few months from now. The restructuring will continue.
Well, that's depressing. My hometown, Martinsville, VA, was recently featured in the New York Times. It was not because the once self proclaimed "Sweat Shirt Capital of the World" is doing well in the down economy.
It did speak very kindly of the NASCAR track. That was nice.
Have you seen the Telsa Model S yet? It's Tesla's newly announced sedan and it looks pretty damn sweet. Good news, it's not suppose to be offered until the third quarter of 2011 and by then I might be able to afford one.
Just purchased the new John Swartzwelder's book Earth Vs. Everybody. Though none of his books have been as funny as his first, "The Time Machine Did It" (an out and out masterpiece) all are worth the money and time to read. I'm glad a new Swartzwelder book is going to be in my life soon.
Our friend Slusser is not happy that bacon didn't win the meat bracket.
His logic that bacon isn't a meal is bunk. The fact that bacon is so
versatile should count for something. You can take a perfectly bland
piece of chicken or steak and bacon it up into a perfect hybrid meat.
Add it to any sandwich or burger or salad. You can stop that.
This simple fact that you can make salad bowls out of bacon should
have trumped all things. The only thing that might beat bacon would be
a team of small Mike Ditka's.
