On Vox: What a way to start the summer. . .

Wow, the past two weeks were nothing short of remarkable.

A subway train smashes into another on a line I ride regularly.

Not unexpectedly, Ed McMahon and Farrah Fawcett dies.

However, Michael Jackson and Billy Mays die rather suddenly.

California literally goes broke and resorts to paying its bills with IOUs!

The Washington Post figuratively goes broke and considers resorting to selling its reporters (and what little respect and credibility it has left) for up to a quarter million dollars.

Mark Sanford, while supposedly on the Appalachian Trail, hiked his way into a multi-year affair down Argentine Way.

Sarah Palin finally has her breakdown and resigns from the Alaskan governorship. She gives a speech that is nonsensical, even by Palin standards. Nobody has a clue what to make of it. Except Bill Kristol, who is always wrong.

And some guy shoots an employee at electronics store where I frequently go to not buy products.
