Michael Dirda: "Michael Mewshaw's 'Sympathy for the Devil: Four Decades of Friendship with Gore Vidal'" (Washington Post)
This book appears just in time. How many people under age 50 even recognize the name Gore Vidal? No, he's not television's onetime horror host Count Gore De Vol. Possibly some millennials will recall a few of Vidal's more famous quips, such as: "Never pass up a chance to have sex or appear on television." Then again, maybe not.

Marc Dion: The Deflated Football Conspiracy (Creators Syndicate)
By now, the world (or that portion of it not reading the Quran and watching soccer) knows that there was some jiggery-poker with the feetballs used in the New England Patriots/Indianapolis Colts game, this year's game of the century. The feetballs, it seems, were under-aerialized in a historic manner. This caused historic debate among fans whose histrionics are the stuff of history. And, of course, it was a conspiracy.

Lucy Mangan: If you don't understand how people fall into poverty, you're probably a sociopath (Guardian)
Why don't abused women just leave their partners? Why don't poor people just spend less? Why do people in positions of power ask so many stupid questions?

Julie Walters: 'People like me wouldn't get a chance today' (Guardian)
She was a working-class kid who got her break in the revolutionary 1970s theatre scene. The grande dame of British acting sounds off about privilege, politics and her drinking days.

Oliver Burkeman: Why getting what you want doesn't always make you happy (Guardian)
'When someone you're arguing with suddenly concedes your point, there's a palpable sense that something's amiss: a crucial process has been skipped'.

Jason Iannone, Kevin Courtney: 5 Awful Realities of Transporting Human Corpses for a Job (Cracked)
Of all the wacky ways to make money, I chose perhaps the wackiest. I transported dead bodies from point-of-death to the morgue for autopsies (and perhaps an inappropriate puppet show or two). Rich or poor, famous or anonymous, all were equal when slumming it in the back of my corpse wagon. I lasted two weeks -- not long enough to encounter any dormant Highlanders or angry zombies, but long enough to be considered a crusty old veteran. The average body transporter quits that fast. Here's why ...

Zeon Santos: The Wonderful World Of Wonder Woman Cosplay (Neatorama)
Wonder Woman is one of the most enduring characters in comic book history, and even though she doesn't look like she has aged a day she has lived many different lives, and worn many different costumes, in the last 74 years. Here's a collection of 30 different incarnations of Wonder Woman, most of which were actually inspired by looks seen in the pages of Wonder Woman comic books.

Robot Soccer Goes Big Time (YouTube)
As the Euro 2012 and this year's RoboCup unfold, we imagine what soccer played by robots might be like if one of the world's most excitable announcing pairs, Ray Hudson and Phil Schoen, called the game.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Many languages do not differentiate between certain colors on the visible spectrum and do not have separate terms for blue and what other color?

      Green                                                      Source

Many languages do not differentiate between certain colors on the visible spectrum and do not have separate terms for blue and green. They instead use a cover term for both (when the issue is discussed in linguistics, this cover term is sometimes called grue in English).

The exact definition of "blue" and "green" may be complicated by the speakers not primarily distinguishing the hue, but using terms that describe other color components such as saturation and luminosity, or other properties of the object being described. For example, "blue" and "green" might be distinguished, but a single term might be used for both if the color is dark. Furthermore, green might be associated with yellow, and blue with black or gray.        Source

  Goodman was one of Noam Chomsky's teachers at the University of Pennsylvania, but if I recall my readings, Goodman was less than sold on Chomsky's political views. I'll go with Chomsky there though.

Deborah said:
   Taking a WAG here - is it green? I speak Spanish, and they have words for blue and green. I speak a bit of Korean and while I could haggle in the markets over a pair of eel skin boots, I don't remember any words for color. And that's what I based my answer on.

   I learned this answer is "green" from the experience of multi-cultural people shopping for colored mat boards & assorted papers

  Green is my absolute favorite color.

Joe S     said:
   I kinda expected the answer, but I looked it up to confirm my suspicions. I acknowledge the answer but I don't understand it. How can two different colors be explained with the same term. I mean this is Blue and this is Green, They're not the same. My 3 year old grandson Wallace knows that. I'm confused.

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

10 Post-Credits Plot Twists That Completely Change the Face of Movies


Respect Issue

Female Vets

The news that a female veteran was harassed last week for pulling into a veterans-only parking space - the assumption apparently being that as a woman, she hadn't served in the military - has struck a chord with a number of female vets.

It's a common story, say female service members. Retired Col. Ellen Haring, an Army veteran, recalls walking into a bar with some fellow female veterans who had been wounded in service.

While the bartender offered free drinks to Ms. Haring's husband, who was with the group, "He never even considered that the women [at the bar] might not just be vets, but combat vets," she says.

In fact, two of the women had been awarded Distinguished Flying Crosses, and three of them had Purple Hearts. "But my husband got free drinks," she says. "He looked like a soldier."

Spain Hunts For Remains

Miguel de Cervantes

Forensic experts began excavating graves and examining bones Saturday in a tiny chapel in Madrid, hoping to solve the centuries-old mystery of exactly where the great Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes was laid to rest.

The author of "Don Quixote" was buried in 1616 at the Convent of the Barefoot Trinitarians in Madrid's historic Barrio de las Letras, or Literary Quarter, but the exact whereabouts of his grave within the convent chapel are unknown.

A team of archaeologists and anthropologists decided to start excavations at the site after identifying what they believe are three unrecorded and unidentified graves in the chapel's crypt.

Evidence marking the location of Cervantes' grave is believed to have been lost during an enlargement of the church after his death. Etxeberria said, back in Cervantes' day, graves were not often marked with long-lasting memorials such as carved headstones.

Gloves From Rematch To Auction


Just months before the 50th anniversary of the heavyweight rematch between Muhammad Ali and Sonny Liston, boxing fans are getting a chance to own a piece of one of the most hotly debated title fights of all time.

Both pairs of gloves from the May 25, 1965, bout in Lewiston, Maine - won by Ali with a first-round knockout from what some saw as a ''phantom punch'' - go up for auction Feb. 21 in New York. They are expected to fetch more than $1 million.

Footage of the fight does not make it clear whether Ali's quick right hand actually connected, and many fans booed. Even the most famous photos of the fight show an enraged Ali standing over Liston as he lay on the canvas, gesturing and yelling at him to get up and fight.

Given the controversial way the bout ended, the boxers' gloves were seized by George Russo, the boxing commissioner for Maine. The gloves remained in the Russo family until they were purchased several years ago by a California collector who is now selling them.

Stolen Wine Recovered

French Laundry

More than $300,000 in world-class wine stolen from a famed Napa Valley restaurant has been recovered from a private cellar on the other side of the country.

But the mystery of who broke into the unmarked wine room at the world-renowned French Laundry eatery and how the 76 bottles of fine wine got to a private cellar in Greensboro, North Carolina, has yet to be solved.

The theft occurred on Christmas, a day after Chef Thomas Keller's restaurant closed for a six-month kitchen remodel.

The Yountville establishment is rated three stars in the Michelin guide and twice has been named the world's best by Restaurant Magazine.

The stolen wine included Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, a single bottle of which can cost up to $10,000. An online wine list shows the bottles sell for $3,250 to $7,950 at the restaurant.

David Gregory

David Gregory nearly traded in a sensible navy suit for an orange jumper, when the former "Meet the Press" host brandished an illegal high-capacity magazine on a 2012 episode, according to an affidavit revealed recently.

During a Dec. 2012 segment on his NBC News program in which he debated the National Rifle Association, Gregory made his point with a real prop. As a result, an affidavit for his arrest on misdemeanor weapons charges was filled out in Washington, D.C., though the anchor was never taken in.

The magazine was not loaded with ammunition, and NBC News was aware of the illegality before Gregory pulled the on-air stunt, the legal document - which was obtained by Judicial Watch and made the media rounds on Friday and Saturday - shows.

Though much personal information is blacked out on the Superior Court in the District of Columbia Criminal Division's Affidavit In Support of an Arrest Warrant, the details are there: An NBC News reporter originally received incorrect information suggesting that the ammo was illegal, but the high-capacity magazine would be OK for civilians to possess.

The affidavit concludes by recommending a warranty for the arrest of Gregory; however, it was stamped as "Declined" on Jan. 11, 2013.

An Inconvenient Truth


Residents of a Montana town whose water supply was tainted by an oil pipeline rupture last week got the all-clear on Friday to turn taps back on, though some reported brown or black material spurting from faucets even after their pipes were flushed.

Drinking supplies for some 6,000 people in and around the community of Glendive became contaminated last Saturday when an estimated 1,200 barrels of crude oil was spilled into the Yellowstone River from a pipeline breach several miles upstream from the northeastern Montana town.

Initial testing of Glendive's water, which is drawn from the river, showed levels of benzene, a cancer-causing constituent of petroleum, well above levels considered safe for human health by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Results of subsequent testing released on Thursday showed that benzene levels had fallen to acceptable levels, and state regulators on Friday said an independent lab analysis confirmed the water was safe to drink after residents flushed their taps of any residual contamination.

But some residents on Friday notified regulators that dark-colored matter was issuing from taps at or near the end of the flushing procedure, state environmental officials said.

Fear Sells


Kansas residents would be allowed to carry concealed weapons without permits under a proposed measure endorsed by a majority of state senators, the bill's author said on Thursday.

Kansas would join Alaska, Vermont, Wyoming and Arizona as states that allow residents to carry concealed weapons statewide without a permit, according to the National Rifle Association, which supports such legislation.

The bill introduced on Wednesday would eliminate background checks, gun training and other requirements that go along with a permit for concealed carry of firearms, Republican state Senator Terry Bruce said.

Kansas already allows open carry of guns without a permit.

Cutting 500 Jobs


DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc will cut about 500 jobs, more than a fifth of its workforce, and produce one fewer movie a year as part of a major restructuring after a string of box-office misses.

The Hollywood studio's shares rose 6 percent to $22.63 after the bell on Thursday.

DreamWorks, which held unsuccessful buyout talks twice last year, said it plans to produce two feature films per year, down from three, and close its Northern California studio.

The maker of the "Shrek" and "Kung Fu Panda" franchises has reported losses in two of the last four quarters, as movies such as "Rise of the Guardians" fell shy of expectations.

Grand Canyon

To those who know and love the Grand Canyon, the names of its historic lodges are synonymous with the national park itself.

Phantom Ranch, Bright Angel Lodge, El Tovar - all bring to mind a place coveted worldwide for its sweeping views, river rapids and history told though layers of geology.

But the fate of those names is up for debate after a longtime Grand Canyon concessionaire applied to trademark them.

Approval of its bid would mean Xanterra Parks & Resorts could charge future concessionaires to use roughly 20 names of the park's most popular properties. It also could walk away with those names, leaving the iconic lodges and other facilities to adopt new identities.

The National Park Service is weighing how to respond with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on the matter, which a spokesman described as relatively uncharted territory.

In Memory

Edgar Froese

Edgar Froese, who founded the pioneering German electronic rock group Tangerine Dream in 1967, has died at 70.

The band said Froese died unexpectedly from the effects of a pulmonary embolism in Vienna on Tuesday.

Froese was born June 6, 1944, in the East Prussian town of Tilsit, now the Russian city of Sovetsk.

He was the only constant member of Tangerine Dream. It released more than 100 albums and soundtracks, ranging from Tom Cruise's film "Risky Business" to the video game "Grand Theft Auto V."

Its sound, which has similarities to that of Pink Floyd, is credited with influencing the later emergence of trance, ambient and electronica.

According to his band, Froese believed that "there is no death, there is just a change of our cosmic address."
