This is the worst way to begin the day, but it demands to be read. My favorite part:

"Justice Scalia cited the work of a criminologist, Samuel Walker, to support his point about increased police professionalism. Professor Walker responded with an opinion article in The Los Angeles Times saying that Justice Scalia had misrepresented his work."

In other news, the Republican Party's timing makes me just a little cynical.

Finally (and not bullshit), check out the beautiful photos on Yuv's blog.

For the Love of Dolly

This is a trailer for a documentary about Dolly Parton fanatics. My friend Amanda got it from a $1 DVD vending machine the other night and loved it. She and I both like her a lot -- maybe not "everything but her bras and panties," but definitely a few of her albums.

I still don't understand why This American Life doesn't get as much love as Mad Men or 30 Rock. This episode is inspirational - take half an hour and treat yourself. You can purchase other episodes through iTunes.
