more dramatic proof of the impending fall of civilization:

Nader who? The name sounds vaguely familiar…

Independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader accused Sen. Barack Obama, the presumed Democratic Party nominee, of downplaying poverty issues, trying to “talk white” and appealing to “white guilt” during his run for the White House.

Silly EPA, they just needed to title the email “Funny Cats!” or “LMAO!” and everything would have been fine:

The White House in December refused to accept the Environmental Protection Agency’s conclusion that greenhouse gases are pollutants that must be controlled, telling agency officials that an e-mail message containing the document would not be opened, senior E.P.A. officials said last week.

The document, which ended up in e-mail limbo, without official status, was the E.P.A.’s answer to a 2007 Supreme Court ruling that required it to determine whether greenhouse gases represent a danger to health or the environment, the officials said.

amen, hallelujah. Vaporizers in the mainstream, by way of Elle magazine. A thimbleful is all it takes:

After a day’s work, I pinch off a small amount of marijuana and put it in a steel-tooth grinder. The flowers, covered in tiny white diamonds of THC, release a piney scent when crushed. I turn on the TV, and instead of taking a glass of wine with my evening news, I take out my vaporizer and set it on the coffee table.

when children get left behind in the romper room, this is the kind of thing that happens:

“He had credentials. He had a badge. He had a phone number to call for verification,” said Gerald Mayor Otis Schulte. “I don’t know what else we could have done.”

… Bill Jakob arrived in this small town with an offer to help police curb the community’s methamphetamine problem. He had a badge and a gun and told officials he had previously worked as an anti-drug agent in Illinois. He even drove a fully equipped Ford Crown Victoria, which he said was for undercover work.

There was just one problem: Jakob was no cop. He was an unemployed truck driver with a criminal record and had recently filed for bankruptcy.

… A cursory check of public records would have revealed that the mysterious lawman had a checkered past.
