Torii Hunter reacts after being asked by Morneau if he "ever hit 30 homers for the Twins." (courtesy of aaronGleeman.com)

I'm working on a couple of big posts. In the meantime, here are a number of links that I have found interesting:

Greet Machine has a very funny discussion of worst songs. Check it out here. Hard to find much to disagree with the song choices.

Twins Ballpark 2010 has a great discussion of potential features of the new Twins ballpark.

Neal Pollack has a funny post about his two year old liking Johnny Cash.

The above picture was from Aaron Gleeman very funny.

Finally at Daily Kos there is a great post on how the media is focusing on political blogs and how many visitors they get etc., asking what it means, what is the message of political, left leaning blogs. Here is a great quote of what it really means:

Let's make it even simpler, shall we? The oh-so-mysterious message to elected officials is: People are sick unto death of war, of unresponsive representation, of incompetence, of corruption, of ever-more-intrusive government, of a spiraling deficit, of lobbyist-owned and corporation-sponsored politicians, of a power-hungry president, of six years of attempts to pass stick-up-the-ass moralizing legislation telling us when and how we can die and when and how we can reproduce. Get out of our personal lives, get the hell out of Iraq and do your freaking job - run the government competently, economically and fairly. Period.

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.


The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

Precisely where do these insane nerds come up with these products? Also, why may possibly you say an item like this?
