DCeptette--Novelty songs for the learning disabled version.

  1. Tales of Craigslist. Woman and her bag gets wedged in door of train, train takes off, no one helps. Woman unleashes wrath on Metro riders. Look, in our defense, we've been through a whole lot lately--Jon Stewart made the people on Crossfire cry, and the Libertines cam to town and apparently stank, and no one knows where their next flu shot is coming from or if Senator Dayton's sitting on documentation that proves we're sitting on a imminent dirty-bomb enchilada. Work with us here...(Craigslist)
  2. Besides, we're all having a little Metro angst these days: Mount Vernon Square floods and no one notices until it's too late. WMATA seems to be quite literally run by the crew from Sealab 2021 (Channel 8)
  3. "I think he's a bit of a jerk, but every time I check his votes, it's what I want." For Jim Moran, this counts as a ringing endorsement. (Post)
  4. The Smithsonian plans to unveil a new exhibit featuring the Space Shuttle. Remember, after the seventeen billionth tourist, the Shuttle Program practically pays for itself. (WTOP)
  5. This is why we need Wonkette: Leiby has items on actual pretty people like Ben Affleck and Paris Hilton, but fronts his column with a totally lame piece on some weak-ass parody of "The Monster Mash" by some crank environmentalist that's sure to just make Dick Cheney weep tears of shame--if not hilarity. We've heard of burying the lede, Leiby makes an art of leading with the burial. (Leiby)
  6. And, more dirty, dirty co-branding: The Diner media family offers thoughts on debates, John Stewart on Crossfire, the Red Sox, and the usual Six of One and a Half Dozen of the Other.
