The 'media' focus shifts temporarily to report the really dean news that longtime buddy "The Bong" (below) was pranged in his car by a 120mph nutter last week, and broke his leg 'n' pelvis. Positive things to focus on:
It could have been alot worse, at that speed.
The dick who rammed him was fleeing from the law, got caught, and is going to prison, where he'll most likely be somebody's plaything.
There'll be some compensation dollars in the pipeline.
In the meantime, though, please send your prayers and positive brain messages towards Brother Bong. He deserves them, being awesome.

It looks like as of today, both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are purchasable on iTunes. What's the deeeeeal, I hear you asking? The deal is 16 episodes (4 weeks) for $10; for a working man with a ViPod, this could almost be a viable alternative to BitTorrent faffage, no?
I came across this intriguing article about new research which discusses, amongst other things, how poverty and stress (and Prozac) affect the ol' brain - it is fairly long and meandering but structurally satisfying, so bear with it.
