  1. Would it be fair to say that we don’t get to know until tomorrow? But that doesn’t make sense. The whole “get the news first” crap means we aren’t waiting to hear it announced tomorrow like the rest of the peons. And yet it’s 5 o’clock here on the east coast and- nothin’.

  2. What the hell is this Ackerman fellow going on about? If he’s afraid his sense-of-place Old Bay crab chips are going to mark him as an arriviste, then I have a suggestion for him. Go to your barber across the street, and ask for a full Detroit. Detroit is a place.

  3. [re=66855]irisheyes[/re]: I heard on NPR (or maybe GMA) that it will be timed so that the maximum amount of people have access to their phones/blackberries. For instance, lunchtime Friday, 6 PM EST or evening Friday. Or maybe all day Saturday or Sunday. Possibly Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday or even Thursday five minutes before he heals the world. Barring that we should definitely know before November 4. I mean probably.

  4. [re=66866]Outstando[/re]: How can you say that? I live in hope that the body found at the bottom of an elevator shaft is any one of several people I consider eminently expendable. Beelzebubba, for instance.

  5. “Blonde Charity Mafia” is bound to give Diamond whores a bad name.
    — Eliot Spitzer
    And I suspect that none of them has ever met Mother Teresa.
    – Cindy McCain

  6. So happy to see the return of these useful service pieces. There is nothing more diverting than a listicle (unless it’s a charticle).
