It’s another installment of the Reactionary Hurl, the series that makes useless comments about things you may or may not care one lick about. You are
encouraged implored to take part by commenting, sending us tips, and spreading the word. Today’s topics: Carson!, Jose Canseco, the Bhutto Assassination, crazy endorsements, foul balls, Bootie, good links, and more! Read it, then emulate me.
- Carsonpedia officially launches. I love it. Good luck to Scott in keeping it going and getting good contributions. I have a hard time saying nice things about Carson, so I’ll contribute when I’m in an especially good mood. (Around Carson)
- Canseco: Vindicated. I’ll be reading it, mostly for the clown factor and the unending “ I told you sos” that will be included. And props to Canseco. He was laughed at when he wrote Juiced but what he said was pretty much true. Now it’s his turn to slap everyone for not believing him, and hopefully tell a little more than last time. (Steroid Nation)
- Amazing photo slideshow of the Bhutto Assassination. From the New York Times comes this slideshow with audio from the photographer who shot it. It depicts the scene before the assassination, the explosion, and the aftermath. If you haven’t seen it, it’s tremendous. (NY Times)
- Crazy person endorses Edwards. Edwards is now officially the “crazy guy” candidate. Yes, moreso than Ron Paul. (RGJ)
- The Roidies! I won’t reveal the #1 overall ‘roid story, but I will say it was a tie between a long list of names and a certain guy whose head continues to grow into his forties. Check it out. There are some good categories. (Steroid Nation)
- “From the when it rains it pours file: Boing Boing has two (2) posts today that I actually could read. First, these cool stickers should find their way to me. And second, The Best of Bootie 2007 is out! I have 2005 and it is a great album. For whatever reason I missed 2006. Wait, that’s because I wasn’t reading Boing Boing then. Go figure. (Boing Boing)
- Foul Ball case update. We covered the case in a previous Hurl and now the full court has decided to rule on it with no further arguments. This could set a crazy or sane precedent, depending on what they rule. Let’s hope it’s sane. (RGJ)
- The best linker’s best links. Kottke, whom I consider to run the finest blog around, gives us a rundown of his best links for the past year. They’re good. My personal favorite was the one to Gladwell’s post about Enron. Go there to find it. (Kottke)
And just to be clear, please read the initial Reactionary Hurl so you can understand the context.
