You can't expect every WH staff member to be in the Gulf, can you?

Not all White House staffers are taking the BP crisis as seriously as our president. Well, I guess we should give them some slack, right? They work hard...

"From what we know of the future DSM-V, Anakin is a 'good' to 'very good' match to the future BPD."

DSM-V = Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition.

BPD = Borderline personality disorder

Anakin = Anakin Skywalker, AKA Darth Vader.

Yes, some French psychiatrists and psychologists had time enough on their hands to create a biopsychosocial assessment and diagnosis for the Lord of the Sith. I guess we should applaud them for their efforts, but how much honor should they get for spending so much time and energy diagnosing someone who doesn't exist?

Federer out of Roland Garros

For the first time in six years, Roger Federer will not play in a semi-final match at a Grand Slam. Fifth-seed Robin Soderling beat the #1 seed in four sets.

"a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together"

The Gores are no more. Some people may, of course, think it great fun to ruminate on reasons for their split, but it's a tragedy in the end. The article reads, "The Gores crafted an image as a happily married couple during his eight-year stint as vice president in the 1990s and a presidential candidate in 2000." Was it just an image? Perhaps they were deliriously happy during the Veep years, and it wasn't just an "image" to "craft." Ten years ago, marital separation may have been the furthest thing from their minds.
