This cannot be true; from PostPolitics (Nashville Post):

Since taking steps to make his home more environmentally-friendly last June, [former Vice-President Al] Gore devours an average of 17,768 kWh per month –1,638 kWh more energy per month than before the renovations – at a cost of $16,533. By comparison, the average American household consumes 11,040 kWh in an entire year, according to the Energy Information Administration.

The report must have slipped a decimal place...right?

Weekend Miracles.

Not only did Tiger Woods play the most "Transplendent Golffe" at Saturday's third round of the U.S. Open, but as he passed the gallery, the lame threw their crutches down, the sores fell away from the lepers, and blind gained their sight. Yowzers, he's good!

P.S. - Rocco made him work for the trophy today, but we worry that Tiger's knee may be in very serious condition. Don't expect to see much of him until the British Open.
A Bold and Courageous Action.

With tonight's endorsement, Al Gore has cinched the nomination for Barack Obama! Uh...yeah, that's it...yeah...
Farewell to a Decent Man.

Tim Russert was a good, decent man, and our public life was enriched by his service. His life on Earth was short, but rich and robust. May we all live as well. R.I.P.
