Man, that US open was off the hook. Probably the most entertaining golf tournament I’ve seen in a while. (Note to USGA: people really, really, really enjoy compelling golf, and it doesn’t have to include tricking out a golf course so its nearly unplayable!)

The special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District has now cost over $50 million. Just goes to show you that these fuckers have way, way too much power.
The Electric Daisy Carnival still gives newsmen the vapors. I bet there were fewer incidents than at a typical Vegas NASCAR Winston Cup, er Nextel Series, no, I meant Sprint Series no, no, no…Monster Energy Series race.
Don’t worry. I’m not gonna subject you to techno. But there will be synths.
Make it a great day, friends.
