While I'm still not entirely un-miffed at the Daily's shoddy-ass journalism from earlier this week, their cover story today has a pretty damn amazing/powerful picture.

Not yourself.

What, no Lou Ferrigno? I'm so disappointed.


And no, I don't feel like letting it go.

Adam West is the only real Batman. Christian Bale? Michael Keaton? Val Kilmer? Wankers all. And Neil Hefti's theme is the best TV theme ever.

Great job Associated Press... now everybody thinks there's a place called "Seattle College". Your dumbass formatting rules and stylebook haven't fucked you this hard since you decided I'm no longer a "Native American" and am now officially and "American Indian".

Oh and if you go to University of Washington and see someone start pouring a can of liquid on themselves in the middle of Red Square... do something. I can't go for two months without hearing about someone offing themselves at the U.

Fucking shit. Way to start the day...

Andy, you know that bystanders are mostly useless when it comes to something like that.

I told you talking about putting up a fence on the Aurora Bridge was a bad idea, and now we have people lighting themselves on fire in Red Square as a result ...

God damn, you are a rancid asshole, Will.

BA, if I turned into Keith Partridge, Mrs. Fnarf wouldn't give me a moment's rest.
