The Who Bassist John Entwistle Dies (washingtonpost.com)

Oh, man… I’ve been listening to a lot of Who recently. They were about to go on tour; I would guess that’s not going to happen. VH1 Classic was running some interviews (mostly with Daltey and Townshend, naturally) and he looked fine.

ISNTAPUNDIT IS JEALOUS

Still striding the fine line, tall and proud…

Actually, when I was starting this thing, my runner-up name was “McPundit”, and if anyone likes that feel free to steal it. But I decided to go with “War Liberal” instead. Oh, and Laurence, you forgot “Hokiepundit” and “Expatpundit“.

BBC News | AFRICA | Nigeria Muslims oppose polio vaccination

Nigerian Imams oppose polio vaccinations. Out of health concern, they say. Hey, if this sort of thing catches on in other Muslim countries, a whole lot of our problems will go away.

Warning: Includes a “scholar” who trots out the dead Iraqi Babies canard and seems to have forgotten that the West did in fact intervene in Bosnia.

Babies who are washed every day have a greater risk of eczema as well. In other words, let your kid go dirty every so often, it’s good for them. I doubt this will catch on.

Covert video shows badgers infiltrating cowsheds

Sounds like Fox’s latest reality program needs a bit of work…

Actually, it turns out that English badgers break into cowsheds to steal food and water, and while they’re there they pass on tuberculosis to the cows. As for how they pass it on, don’t ask.

The Nando Times: Alabama prison punishment declared unconstitutional

When the Supremes weren’t busy gutting the separation of Church and state, they were saying Alabama’s policy of torturing prisoners who misbehave on chain gangs was so obviously unconstitutional that prisoners can sue. However, even Alabama no longer chains people to hitching posts with no food or water in the middle of summer. (How many states even have chain gangs anymore?) The policy was championed by former governor Fob James, who doesn’t believe in evolution and is exactly the sort of person who would be named “Fob”.

The vote was 6-3. Guess how it broke down.
