Did You Know...


Sunday Open Thread

A fairly nice day in Las Vegas will mean that I’m out wandering instead of in the hotel writing where I should be, so here’s an open thread for discussion.

Possible topics:

In February, GM sold just 281 Chevy Volts. That number is actually down from January. Sure, only 281 were sold in February, but since we’re all paying for it, the “lives touched” number is well over 300 million.

Michael Moore is in solidarity with labor unions — except when he’s not.

If you had “60” in the “guess how many rounds of golf President Obama has played since taking office” pool, collect your winnings.

Nice to see Charlie Sheen continuing to pull himself together in a dignified way.

Somebody spiked Chris Matthews’ coffee with an extra heavy-duty Hope & Change rufie last week: “Everything Obama has done has been for the good of the country.”

An intervention is in order.

Five-dollar a gallon gas in Los Angeles and climbing, and people aren’t happy. Well, not all people, but most. Chris Matthews probably thinks it’s for the good of the country.

And finally, speaking of Las Vegas, the Kobalt Tools 400 is going on today, which helps explain why I saw Tony Stewart in the lobby a couple of nights ago. Seemed like a nice guy.

Have a great afternoon and evening, all!
