Turns out someone archived the original Viking Kittens, featuring "The Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin. Enjoy!

Popped Culture Corner
Well, sorta. Reaction that add-water-and-stir cotraversy from the MTV music awards... from Stevie Nicks (!). She actually has some good points. ( I thought the bit about J.Lo was funny, too. )

Overblown Rhetoric Award
Todays prize, a bronzed bag of hot air goes to Andrew Sullivan for his paragraph entitled AND THE BATTLE BEGINS. Among the gems crammed into these few sentences: the US is banning "married couples" from coming in and banning "gays". Well, um, no... the US government is simply requiring that people who are coming in fill out the right paperwork. Geeez.... And, to top it all off, he somehow ties this all to allowing people with AIDS into the country... as if there was some kind of logical link. Four stars!

Anti-bono Legal Work
Lawyers will get one third of molestation settlement. Holy crap! Oops, unholy crap! Check this out:
Attorneys in the Catholic Church sexual abuse settlement yesterday defended their one-third share of the $85 million accord, saying their "lawyers' payday" is diluted by the enormous cost of suing the Archdiocese of Boston. "We have had as many as 20 people at one time working on these cases," said Roderick MacLeish Jr., an attorney with the law firm of Greenberg Traurig.
Let's see... $85,000,000 / 3 = $28,000,000
There were at most 20 people at any given time, but lets assume there were 20 full time.
That gives us: $28,000,000 / 20 = $1,400,000 per person on the team, even the flunkys working in the copy room.
Yeah, they're goin' broke at that rate.

Seattle's proposed espresso tax went down in flames. The idea was that they'd tax every cup of coffee if it contained espresso and gived the money to a preschool program for kids. What was the connection? None. But it was for the children. I will celebrate tomorrow with a latte from Peets.

The state kills the killer of a killer for us. The sad thing is this: at each of these killings, someone was happy about it. Arg.
