Freaks n' Wonks

I seem to have devoted a lot of time to blogging about freaks of one sort or another this week (and I didn’t even mention the Fall’s Mark E. Smith condoning driving over seagulls or Vanilla Ice being arrested for domestic assault), so I may as well throw this disturbing thought in as well.  I can’t decide which of these two headlines from the past week sounds more perverse:

German Scientists Pay People to Spend Two Months in Bed to Simulate Mars Mission

Gag Order Issued in Case of Florida Cheerleaders Who Beat Teen

To compensate for focusing on things like that, though, I promise an entire week of anti-government rants this coming week, in time for Tax Day.  I wouldn’t want people getting the false impression I’ve grown complacent.
