Another Great Day for Geekdom

Lost in the hoopla of Sonia Sotomayor's appointment to the Supreme Court this morning was that she also grew up watching Perry Mason. Erle Stanley Gardner, at one time the best selling novelist in the United States, was actually a champion of the underdog in his legal practice, devoting his life to working for the underprivileged and exploited. If the Republicans could draw a line connecting his real-life legal practice to Sotomayor's probable stance on the bench, they'd have a real hissy fit.

In real life, by the way, Gardner did marry his "Della Street."

Is Fox News Anti-American?

As Conan O'Brian's insult dog might say, poup on you. Wait 'til Fox gets pelted with the fact that Grey Poupon is owned by Kraft Foods, which employs more than 98,000 Americans. Of course, when did Fox News ever let a silly little thing like facts get in the way of an attack on liberals?

If you at all like Grey Poupon, you'd best stock up quick; it's likely to fly off the shelves, if Americans' fascination with all things Obama is any indication.
