Another installment of the Reactionary Hurl, the series in which I take the easy road to blogging and react to news in short, opinionated, useless snippets. I used to think I’d reject any press release I got. But with the addition of the Self importance meter, how could I?
- Galena wins state. The only reason I really care about this is that they ran the race at Rancho San Rafael Park. I ran the course there twice in my high school running career, and I doubt I ever broke 20 minutes. And I was on a team that took second at state in the biggest school category, so these kids are fast. My story is that I knew I was always in the back parts of races (I was the seventh guy on the seven-person team), but the start at Rancho was on a wide road that ran right in front of the Wilbur May Museum. I saw photographers there and made sure I looked like a total hero out front before drifting back to where I belonged and could actually maintain. The result, there’s a killer picture of me and my mullet flowing behind me in someone’s archives, and they probably have no idea how great that is. (RGJ)
- This sounds familiar. Apparently, even the bigtime bloggers care about how they’re portrayed. (Instapundit)
- Gladwell makes a triumphant return! I hope his blogging picks back up to the point it was a while ago before he stopped. This guy is one of my favorites and returns with a good look at how the FBI profiles serial killers. He is a must-read for anyone who likes culture, sociology, and good writing. (Gladwell)
- New KUNR show to debut Friday. KUNR and KNPR in Las Vegas will begin a new show, “State of Nevada” on Friday at 9 am, according to Kate Grey. According to the release, “State of Nevada addresses issues of importance across the state, including the economy, water, the environment and government. KUNRâ€™s northern Nevada host Brian Bahouth wants listeners to hear what people in the state are talking about, and engage them in developing this conversation further.“ (KUNR)
- Oh, oops. All I can say is that I’m outraged that the Republicans would be so stupid as to let my donor information be exposed to potential ne’er -do-wells. I think I’ll post a comment on the newspaper website excoriating them for their business as usual approach to the whole thing as well. I mean, come on, not even an 800 number? Bastards. Wait, what? It was the Democrats? Better yet, the guy responsible is buddies with the Gleaner? Meh. (Inside Nevada Politics)
- Seriously, this is not a joke. If this story is true, and it was done by someone trying to get back at The Muth for whatever reason, that person should die in a fire. (Muth’s Truths)
And just to be clear, please read the initial Reactionary Hurl so you can understand the context.
