Al Gore Was Right After All
With scientific data piling up showing that the world has reached its hottest-ever point in recorded history, global-warming skeptics are facing a high-profile defection from their ranks. Bjorn Lomborg, author of the influential tract "The Skeptical Environmentalist," has reversed course on the urgency of global warming, and is now calling for action on "a challenge humanity must confront."

Palin Is Not Only Cheap But Has A Temper. Tick Tock.
Palin does not always treat those ordinary people well, however—it depends on who is watching. Of the many famous people who have stayed at the Hyatt in Wichita (Cher, Reba McEntire, Neil Young), Sarah Palin ranks as the all-time worst tipper: $5 for seven bags.
During the campaign, Palin lashed out at the slightest provocation, sometimes screaming at staff members and throwing objects. Witnessing such behavior, one aide asked Todd Palin if it was typical of his wife. He answered, “You just got to let her go through it… Half the stuff that comes out of her mouth she doesn’t even mean.” When a campaign aide gingerly asked Todd whether Sarah should consider taking psychiatric medication to control her moods, Todd responded that she “just needed to run and work out more.”

I Always Disliked That Sunburst Rug in Bush's Oval Office, It Reminded Me Of A Billboard Ad For A Trailer Park
When President Barack Obama moved into the White House
last year, he didn't rush into the presidential tradition of redecorating the
It wasn't a priority given the state of the economy and how much was on his plate, aides said. Besides, Obama liked the golden-hued "sunburst" rug that former first lady Laura Bush had chosen for the room, the one that President George W. Bush often gushed about for the sense of optimism he felt it conveyed.
However, while the Obamas vacationed this month at Martha's Vineyard , a quiet makeover of the Oval Office was under way, right down to removing the rug that embodied Bush's sense of how sunny the world could be.
