One-man news org busts open local pension scam! Bruce Murphy's Milwaukee World website uncovered a story about improprieties in the county pension fund on October 10th of last year while the traditional outlets dawdled until January of this year. Kind of neat to know that all the solo journalism isn't all Matt Drudge "advances" from old media. (via medianews)

That's cool, but the Simpsons has been all over this with their "Mr. X" episode.

That tip on Quimby's pool was invaluable.

I remember when I used to think that Matt Drudge wasn't a complete idiot. Those were the days, eh?

When was that, exactly? :)
