Today I bring you four links, for which I searched far and wide.
1. South Carolina Democratic Party rejects Colbert candidacy:
The executive council of the South Carolina Democratic Party voted 13-3 to keep Colbert off the January primary ballot, saying the Comedy Central star did not meet guidelines requiring a candidate to be viable and to campaign actively for the job. Dissenters suggested their colleagues lacked a sense of humor.
I don't really think it's that humorous. Been done, etc.
2. We all have a favorite cousin, who we might kick the ol' ball around with at family gatherings. Scientists have discovered some new fun-loving cousins: flying lemurs:
Found in Southeast Asia, colugos are colloquially called "flying lemurs," although they are not lemurs and they don't truly fly.
"I don't think you can put an asterisk in the game of baseball," Bonds said, according to a release from MSNBC, "and I don't think that the Hall of Fame can accept an asterisk in their Hall of Fame. You can't, you cannot give people the freedom, the right to alter history, you can't do it. There's no such thing as an asterisk in baseball."
Well, at least I don't think his publicist wrote that one.
Joe Girardi stepped to the podium, put on his new pinstriped jersey and showed off a most appropriate number -- 27.
As in, now it's his job to lead the New York Yankees to their 27th World Series championship.
That's really irritating.
Well, that does it for links.
