And in honor of this momentous occasion, you should learn how Elvis saved the world from fascism.

UPDATE: I should also point out this Power Line article, which includes the following notes on Elvis’ meeting with Nixon:

Presley indicated to the President in a very emotionial mamner that he was “on your side.” Presley kept repeating that he wanted to be helpful, that he wanted to restore some respect for the flag, which was being lost. He mentioned he was just a poor boy from Tennessee who had gotten a lot from his country, which in some way he wanted to repay.

UPDATE 2: And, of course, Ziggy:

Steak Night!

Those of you who are my FaceBook friends know this has been my dominant thought for the past twenty four hours.

Quote of the Day

“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.”

Quote of the Day

“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be to-morrow.”

–James Madison (likely), Federalist No. 62, 1788

It’s funny

So I’m watching the rerun of Game 4 of the World Series on the new MLB network, and my heart is still breaking when bad things happen, such as when Pedro Feliz popped out with the bases loaded in the bottom of the first. Even though I know the Phils won the Series and this specifically is the game when the Phils scored in double digits.

It shows how baseball can get into your soul even when you know what the final outcome will be. Can any other game have that effect on you?

UPDATE (17:40): Joe Blanton’s home run still makes me laugh.

Reminder

Scrubs Season 8 will premiere with two new episodes this Tuesday at 9 PM on ABC.
