Some hideously awful Menorahs make me laugh. The coolest iceberg video you’ll see. And a newspaper’s insane way to decide a firing


Too tired to blog about the awesomeness that was the 12-12-12 Sandy Relief concert last night, but it was awesome. Thoughts on it, and Kanye West’s skirt, tomorrow…
As we are still knee-deep (candle-deep) in the throes of Hanukkah, I thought this photo gallery was particularly awesome.

The folks at Huffington Post compiled a list of the 25 tackiest menorahs, and some of them are truly hilariously god-awful. The Pez one (above) is great, but I highly recommend clicking through to find the “Four Loco can” menorah, and the Dinosaur menorah.

Hey, when you need a menorah and you gotta make do with what you have, this is what results.

**This is one of the most amazing videos you’ll see. It’s from a new documentary called “Chasing Ice,” and I’d like to show it to everyone who doesn’t believe the climate is changing. Four minutes of incredible footage…

**After all I’ve seen and heard about newspaper cutbacks and layoffs in my former profession the last 10 years, I thought it was impossible for me to be surprised anymore.

But Kansas City Star, you win the prize for making my jaw drop today. Check this out: They told two reporters, Karen Dillon and Dawn Bormann, that one of them had to be let go. And then told them that they were to make the decision which one of them would leave.

I mean, really? You’re going to ask two colleagues to figure out which one of them is going to be out on the street? What, do they play the most important game of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” ever? Flip a coin? Race a 50-yard-dash?

Just despicable.
