It is almost, but not quite, completely unlike tea.

A nuanced view

Here's our governor-elect, Mike Beebe, speaking on how he'd like to work with the legislature:

"I expect I'll probably be a little more like Clinton," Beebe said. "I like members of the General Assembly. Virtually all of them are friends of mine. I was a product of the legislature, so I understand some of the nuisances of the way they think and act."
I think he meant to say nuances, but you never know.

That stinks!

Watch this video with the knowledge that I had to be in the same building with this man later that same day.

Man, even the camera stunk.

Diminishing returns

While browsing Amazon tonight for a new television, I was presented with the following offer:

Yes -- Amazon suggested that since I'm looking at a large-format television, I might be interested in buying two of them. First I was flattered, but now I'm starting to feel a bit patronized. Are they trying to make some kind of subtle statement about how many times I've looked at this TV on their site?

This also brings up the question of how these "Better Together" offers are generated in the first place: is it via humans (obviously not very smart ones), or from past purchases... by people who impulse-buy a second television.
