Dowd and Out
He can’t handle the truth.
A young computer programmer on his way to a pheasant-hunting trip last November offered a cri de coeur about government groping: Just substitute “Leave the copter, take the corpse” for “Leave the gun, take the cannoli.” Was this, I wondered, the same guy who sometimes showed up in the ’70s with mismatched shoes? Talk about your misty watercolor memories. What’s too painful to remember, we simply choose to forget.
Once upon a time, Cinderella fell out of favor. Nevertheless, Rand is blazing back as an icon of the Tea Party, which overlooks her atheism, amorality in romance and vigorous support for abortion. Our heroine, starting with a family disadvantage, faces hypocrisies, cruelties and obstacles on a perilous journey to a thrilling new world, and uses her wits and integrity to triumph. A new documentary about Cunningham offers a tonic of simplicity and a paean to women after Sheen’s excesses and contempt for women. Jerry Brown doesn’t know who Charlie Sheen is.
We’re bargaining with the shadow of a shadow. Once funeral homes began live-streaming funerals, it was probably inevitable. The antisocial nerd, surrounded by his army of slaving minions, has been holed up making something so revolutionary and magical that it turns him into a force that could conquer the world.
The doomed caribou gazed calmly across the Alaska tundra at Caribou Barbie. Hunting seems more sporting with birds — at least they have a better chance to get away. Unless the hunter is Dick Cheney, who would shoot pheasants that were pen-raised and released from a net to make slaughtering them easier. Hey, dude, you’re a politician. Act like one.
Sound familiar? That’s because all of the above is pieced together from lines out of NYTimes columnist Maureen Dowd’s columns.

April Fool’s! Those headlines are all from real pieces covered in Science Daily. You see what we did there? We’re such tricksters. PS. Even though we’ve been known to poke fun at you, we love you Science Daily, never change.

Blogically Speaking has been purchased by teen-fave TV network, the WB. Site co-founders ev and lebvs stated that they were initially unsure about the merger, but that the decision was finalized when they were offered lead roles - and writing/production leadership - in Felicity and Dawson’s Creek, respectively.
The merger is considered a boon for the tv channel, whose popularity has dwindled since the 1990s. In fact, most of the American public was largely unaware that the network still existed until it made headlines for its purchase of Blogically Speaking.
When asked to describe this merger’s effect on Blogically Speaking though the use of bizarre transportation imagery, ev and lebvs said:
Far from changing our editorial approach, our culture, or our mission, this moment will be for BlogicSpeak like stepping off a fast-moving train and onto a supersonic jet. We’re still traveling toward the same destination, with the same people at the wheel, and with the same goals, but we’re now going to get there much, much faster.
