On Lonely Planet Travel Guides Dumped At "Big Loss" By BBC

I still have an old 'Let's Go' Europe edition, kept to salivate over the $4 lunch specials in restaurants that are now probably Ikea stores.

On Great White Shark Is California's Newest Cuddly Endangered Species

Eventually humans will be reduced to eating each other. Let's hope Chris Christie is the future of the American diet.

On Here's Your 2013 State of the Union Drinking Game (Political Ritual Edition)

Too many rules. I'll just do a bowl full and see how far that gets me. Maybe a couple of beers for the GOP response. OK, I'll need high test vodka for the tea party caucus response.

On Obama Might Allow People To Smoke Marijuana In States Where It's Now Legal

Simply being a med pot client in Washington state is the current ultimate. The state doesn't maintain a registry of eligible patients, all that is needed is a note from a doctor (which is not a prescription but an authorization to use cannabis). State law allows a defense if arrested that even if you didn't have that note you potentially could have gotten one.
The personal amount permitted is what the state decided was a 60-day supply: 24 OUNCES! As well as 5 plants. Law again allows the defense that you need a larger amount if you can prove it is medically helpful.
Some Washington communities (surprisingly Bellingham) still raid dispensaries on occasion but Seattle and many cities are more enlightened.

On Up And Down With Andrew Sullivan

I'm surprised Sullivan isn't taking some sort of medicine. It would seem he ran out of his SSRI (been there!) and simply flipped out. I have no excuse for the people on the right, though, who are truthers/birthers/whatevers.
