THERE – I FIXED IT
That’s the name of a website – thereifixedit.com – that testifies to the sometimes scary ingenuity of the American public. I couldn’t find a way to highlight favorites, but here’s one (imported to a different site) to give you an idea. And here’s someone’s top ten.

. . . had hit after hit Monday. First this piece on “scaring white people”; then this one on a Tea Party guide for avoiding black neighborhoods if you attend Glenn Beck’s odd civil rights march this weekend; this one on the alleged year of the anti-incumbent (except the incumbent seems to keep winning); and this one on the credit card reforms that have just kicked in (you can no longer be charged $29 for exceeding your credit limit by $5 or have the interest jacked up on stuff you’ve already purchased).
Quote of the Day
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.'~Martin Luther King, Jr.
