Facial Hair, Bruuudevold, Cool Dead Women, and Black Jews From Nebraska

Baseball, fund raising and silly facial hair. Sweet.

Voter turnout in North Dakota town is a big whopping zero. Mayor Darrel Brudevold wins (without even voting for himself)!

“Brudevold said he intended to vote, but that he had crops to tend.”

The title of the obituary already makes it a winner: “Dorothy King, 99; Proud Passenger of Public Transportation,” but even better she had a son that died in 1927. This woman’s son died eighty-one years ago. Wow.

Another great obit, this woman is my new hero: Anne C. Martindell. Just read it, k?

Instead of Goodnight Moon, Goodnight Bush. Here’s an exerpt:

“A grand old party to war in a rush/And a quiet Dick Cheney whispering hush.”

Young Man From Omaha May Be Perfect As Brooklynite. (Yes, a black Hasidic Jew. From Nebraska.)

On another note, I’m going to really miss Tim Russert.

    The S2 bus almost made me cry the other day.
