Jonah Goldberg draws no conclusions

Jonah Goldberg at The Corner:

Some fascinating maps of major American cities, highlighting ethnic breakdown.

Meanwhile, Red State cities like San Antonio and Houston are much better integrated.

It’s not an argument, just an observation.

Hey! Jonah Goldberg wants to show you something.

But he’s not saying it means anything.

He’s not even sure why he’s telling you about it.

He just kind of randomly copies and pastes links into his blogging software.

Not that I would dare suggest anything by mentioning this.

The sad story of human billboard David Jonathan Winkelman

Winkelman became a human billboard for the radio station KORB in late-2000 after a disc jockey offered listeners a six-figure payout if they tattooed the FM station’s call letters and logo on their forehead. Winkelman and his stepson, Richard Goddard, went to a local tattoo parlor and each emerged with forehead ink promoting “93 Rock,” the “Quad City Rocker.”

But when the two guys tried to claim the money, the radio station said it was just a joke. They sued, but the suit was dismissed.

Winkelman just got arrested for something or other, so we’re all treated to the mugshot below. Poor guy…

Episode 5 – “Don’t Be a Hero”

Suspense and adventure is afoot. As well as the next big fad: near-porn. It’s Dave versus the death ray. And big brother versus football. And giraffes versus their necks. And Pac-Man versus the ghosts. Enjoy!

Two new dinosaur species pick up the fallen Ceratops mantle

Good news! We have replaced our old and broken Triceratops with the new and shiny Kosmoceratops and Utahceratops, both discovered in the Utah desert.

The Utahceratops has a large horn over the nose and short eye horns that project to the side rather than upward, similar to a bison. Its skull is about 7 feet long, it stood about 6 feet high and was 18 to 22 feet long. It is believed to have weighed about 3 to 4 tons.

The Kosmoceratops has similar facial features at the Utahceratops, but has 10 horns across the rear margin of its bony frill that point downward and outward. It weighed about 2.5 tons and was about 15 feet long.
