Wednesday link-o-rama

  • Somewhere, a bawdy, syphilitic queen is weeping. And the wind cries Mary.
  • Notre Dame fans are illiterate, insecure assholes. [Link corrected. -ed.]
  • Pissed and Petty somehow manages to make poker sound interesting.
  • Gratuitous self-aggrandizement: "CrimeNotes, you are a prophet, my son." (remark addressed to me in the comments on MZone's post about expanding Michigan Stadium)
  • Forget basketball for a second. Who knew that Todd Jones just surpassed Mike Henneman as the Tigers' all-time saves leader? I still have Henneman baseball cards somewhere in my parents' house.
  • Every Day Should Be Saturday captures the essence of Lloyd Carr in a single image.
  • Barely Legal Blog brings back memories of lousy professors who didn't give a shit.
  • Our Baghdad Bureau Chief confirms via e-mail the recent reports that Iraqis love Lionel Richie: "it's totally true — i'm embarrassed to admit that i didn't know that "loving you" song was lionel richie... it's ubiquitous in baghdad..."
  • Requisite serious linkage: there are many interesting articles in the current New York Review of Books.
  • In a hilarious case of mistaken identity, BBC believed that it had booked a technology expert to comment on the British litigation over whether Apple Computer infringed the Beatles' Apple Records trademark. Instead, it booked a cabdriver of the same name. Neither BBC nor their guest realized the mistake until the questioning was underway. The look on the guy's face is priceless ("I'm very surprised to hear this verdict come on me, because I was not expecting that.") but he holds up like a champ.
