How the Grinch Stole Wisconsin's History?
So, here in Wisconsin, the state government managed to screw up the economy so bad that its making historic budget cuts. Rather than take it lying down, anonymous members of the Historical Society have struck back via the Internet. Thus far, the rewriting of "the Grinch" into "How the Grinch Stole Who-story" is classic. Perfect for Friday.

I know it's early for the story of the Grinch,
but I thought everyone should re-read it. It is a wonderful diversion from and a good fable about the 9/11 attacks. Granted, he won't be carving our roast beast, but in some pithy, corny way, Bin Laden may realize that our spirit -- our livelihood "doesn't come from a store."

Not a terribly serious topic, but I saw the Grinch movie on the weekend and hated it savagely. Just deplored it from beginning to end. And as time has passed and I've thought more about my extreme reaction, I've grown to hate it even more. This dude at Entertainment Weekly makes a pretty good case
for why this blockbuster is a big chunk o' crap. Thoughts?
P.S. I did see Quills
last night however, and it was amazing.
