Jewish date: 22 Kislew 5770 (Parashath Wayyeshev).
Today’s quasi-holiday: The International Day Against Corruption.
Worthy causes of the day: “Friends of the Earth U.S.: Breaking from Copenhagen: U.S. colludes in plot to shunt poor country demands”, “AARP - Health Action Now!: Tell the Senate- Close the Doughnut Hole!”, “Enact Health Care Reform Based on These 7 Guiding Principles - The Petition Site”, and “Tell the Senate Democratic Caucus: Don't give up on the public option,”
Today’s news and commentary:
Mystery Science Theater 3000, the famous comedy show in which they made fun of bad movies, up on Hulu. In celebration, today’s weird thing is the Mystery Science Theater 3000 attack on The Giant Gila Monster. The Gila monster is the best actor in this film, strangely enough. Enjoy, share the weirdness, and bask in the glow of Joel, Crow, and Tom wisecracking about the sheer badness, which is 5,000% more fun than the badness of Religulous.
