Things I Learned on the Internet Today


1 comment

An hour of web-surfing at lunch can pay big dividends. One can learn so many fascinating things, like:

George Bush told a group of visiting British journalists that he would have endorsed Barack Obama for president if he'd been asked.

Also, he forgives Kanye West for saying "George Bush doesn't like black people."

And I learned that young voters, even in the recent GOP blowout election, are more diverse and tend to vote Democratic, which bodes ill for at least one political party.

Also, the American health-care system works for all of us. Which is why a family is selling pictures their 5-year-old drew to pay for his chemotherapy.

And it turns out that Gene Shalit, whom I assumed was deceased or long retired, is leaving the Today Show. Who knew? I need to get up and watch television earlier in the day, I suppose. Cheers, Gene.

Surprisingly, Sarah Palin, it seems, does read a newspaper. Sort of. Sadly, she's still a whiny, spiteful moron.

And that's your lunch-hour web-surfin' news. Back to work, all of you!
