Alleged president George W. Bush gave his State of the Union speech last night. For those of you who missed it, it consisted of him saying what boiled down to “We are going to turn the USA and Earth in general into Utopia, never mind that I have no idea how to do that and have been actively working against that for the past four years. Now start investing your retirement money in the stock market so you can make my good buddies on Wall Street even richer than they are now. Blah blah blah.” The Democratic rebuttal usurped Bush’s religious and moral overtones (to which he never had a legitimate claim anyway) and rightly slammed Bush for working against the interests of senior citizens and our troops.

Today’s weird thing is “Small Asteroid Passes Between Satellites and Earth”, which shows how little most of us know of what is going on up there.
