And now, the news...

Things that caught my eye in the headlines today, in no particular order:

Thirteen million a year. To play baseball. That's just bullshit.

The New York Yankees grabbed center fielder Johnny Damon away from the rival Boston Red Sox, reaching a preliminary agreement Tuesday night on a $52 million, four-year contract.
Not to mention Steinbrenner's beard-n-hair rule. Poor Johnny will likely have to cut his crop, which is, in my opinion, the only thing that sets him apart from any other player. I hope the shave and haircut have the Sampson effect on him.


I could see this coming a mile away.

In one of the biggest courtroom clashes between faith and evolution since the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial, a federal judge barred a Pennsylvania public school district Tuesday from teaching “intelligent design” in biology class, saying the concept is creationism in disguise.
No shit, Sherlock.


We could be phuqued.

Scientists are monitoring the progress of a 390-metre wide asteroid discovered last year that is potentially on a collision course with the planet, and are imploring governments to decide on a strategy for dealing with it.
It WILL happen, sometime. Might as well be in 2036.


Poor, "poor" Michael.

Lawyers for Michael Jackson and a key creditor are in talks to keep the pop star from defaulting on $200 million in loans secured by his prized stake in the Beatles’ song catalog, an attorney for the singer said Monday.
I don't want to seem like I'm rooting against Michael... but I'm rooting against Michael. Anyone who lives that far beyond their means needs an adjustment.
