Blurb from Drudge: “During first 36 days of Katrina, Bush made 7 visits to Gulf Coast. . . So far on Day 36 of BP oil leak, Obama has made 1 visit to disaster area.” The president doesn’t need to go to a disaster area, of course, but it’s amazing how much flack Bush took in the MSM contrasted with the MSM’s treatment of Obama. * * * * * * * Hmmmm. Marc Faber is the dude who endorsed the (so far, a little bit optimistic) book I blogged about yesterdayFaber: Nations Will Print Money, Go Bust, Go to War…We Are Doomed.” The article is great for the time-strapped reader. It’s merely a bullet-point presentation of Faber’s various points, like this one, “The next 3-5 years will be highly volatile.” * * * * * * * On quitting the Black Eyed Peas concert tour. “The show opens with “Let’s Get Retarded In Here.” Seriously. That’s the hook. It was like Idiocracy: the Musical, with the crowd as extras.” * * * * * * * Blog etiquette: Give credit for the site where you found stories. I often neglect this finery, but should mention: the last two articles were found at Lew Rockwell. * * * * * * * Humorous Jimmy Fallon: “This week is National Safe Boating Week. Step No. 1 in boating safety: Don’t light a match near the ocean.”
