I Can't Be More Direct -- Watch 'Terriers'

  • The Monologue:
    • Best line from this article: "U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said Wednesday's verdict confirms that the Obama administration's decision to try Gitmo detainees in civilian courts 'was a mistake and will not work.'" Also not working for Rep. Hoekstra: the 14th amendment.
    • The Air Force is warning its troops not to use FourSquare or Facebook Places. Private Johnson is now Mayor of Fallujah! (@Fallujah with 13,999 others)
    • Bristol Palin and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino teamed up to make a PSA in favor of abstinence and safe sex. That video is so like a black fly in my Chardonnay.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • I can't say it any more clearly -- FX's Terriers is the best show airing on TV right now, by far. It's funny, sad, suspenseful, and brilliantly acted and written. I can't recommend it enough.
    • Now the two best players in this season of Survivor -- it's all relative -- are out and it's wide open between six of the remaining nine contestants. A big twist in tonight's episode shows that even in an off-year, the format still works.
    • Human Target returned tonight. No better mindless fun on TV. Hawaii Five-0 is a distant second.
    • I was playing with my Yahoo Music app and I found that with its new Pandora-like format, you can get stations called "Class Reunion" that let you pick only songs from a specific year. Now I can totally avoid any new music.
  • Random Video:
    • Wherever does Lady Antebellum get the ideas for their music?
