When do we get a game show called "Kick Ben Stein in the balls"?

Balloon Juice:

2. The people who have been laid off and cannot find work are generally people with poor work habits and poor personalities. I say "generally" because there are exceptions. But in general, as I survey the ranks of those who are unemployed, I see people who have overbearing and unpleasant personalities and/or who do not know how to do a day's work. They are people who create either little utility or negative utility on the job. Again, there are powerful exceptions and I know some, but when employers are looking to lay off, they lay off the least productive or the most negative. To assure that a worker is not one of them, he should learn how to work and how to get along--not always easy.

Superman vs. Thor; heart surgery edition

First, the background. Superman apparently not exactly going all out to help a man with a heart problem. From an actual comic, Super-Man #701.

Next, the parody. Thor in the same situation.

Finally, and not at all related, the costumes for the new Thor movie. They look kind of... renfaire or fan cosplay to me, but promo pics never look great, so we'll see.

Shakespeare liked to coin new words too

Linking to Sarah Palin stuff feels out of date at this point, but i couldn't help myself with this one. Refudiate me if you disagree.

Obama administration failing on science, too.

LA Times:

In Florida, water-quality experts reported government interference with efforts to assess damage to the Everglades stemming from development projects.

In the Pacific Northwest, federal scientists said they were pressured to minimize the effects they had documented of dams on struggling salmon populations.

In several Western states, biologists reported being pushed to ignore the effects of overgrazing on federal land.

In Alaska, some oil and gas exploration decisions given preliminary approval under Bush moved forward under Obama, critics said, despite previously presented evidence of environmental harm.

The most immediate case of politics allegedly trumping science, some government and outside environmental experts said, was the decision to fight the gulf oil spill with huge quantities of potentially toxic chemical dispersants despite advice to examine the dangers more thoroughly.

This is purely an executive branch thing. No 60 votes requirements to overcome. There's no excuse for this.

Clearly indicates we need to lower taxes on the rich

NYT:

The housing bust that began among the working class in remote subdivisions and quickly progressed to the suburban middle class is striking the upper class in privileged enclaves like this one in Silicon Valley.

Whether it is their residence, a second home or a house bought as an investment, the rich have stopped paying the mortgage at a rate that greatly exceeds the rest of the population.

More than one in seven homeowners with loans in excess of a million dollars are seriously delinquent, according to data compiled for The New York Times by the real estate analytics firm CoreLogic.

By contrast, homeowners with less lavish housing are much more likely to keep writing checks to their lender. About one in 12 mortgages below the million-dollar mark is delinquent.

Though it is hard to prove, the CoreLogic data suggest that many of the well-to-do are purposely dumping their financially draining properties, just as they would any sour investment.
