Quick Hits

Just a few things to share today, of varying importance.

First and most important, it is time (once again) to step in and save NPR and PBS. For those who like news, entertainment, education and muppets, you can't just sit there and watch public broadcasting have its funding slashed again. It is bad enough that after Charlie Rose or Tavis Smiley i have to sit through Toyota commercials, or how This American Life is brought to you by Volkswagon, but do you really want your kids to grow up in a world where there is no Sesame Street? I think not...

Just sign it, dammit:

The Mets have only lost 5 series so far this year. They have tied/won the other 15 they have played. That is pretty staggering. Taking 1/2, 2/3, 2/4, 3/4, or an entire series 75 percent of the time? I'll take that anyday.

And finally, check out the trailer for the fantastic film BRICK. One of the best films i've seen all year:
