You watch HANNIBAL and you want to think no one could be that disconnected from basic humanity and then you see Nancy Grace's hashtags…
"Joe Romm draws our attention to the third slice of the latest IPCC report on climate change, on the costs of mitigation; the panel finds that these costs aren't that big -- a few percent of GDP even by the end of the century, which means only a trivial hit to the growth rate. At one level this shouldn't be considered news. It has been apparent for quite a while that given the right incentives we could maintain economic growth even while greatly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. But there is, in fact, some news that greatly strengthens the case that saving the planet would be quite cheap." - Andrew C (✔)
"As a practical matter, the fallacies of the right are much more important -- indeed, they may destroy civilization. What's notable about right-wing commentary on the economics of emission reduction is how people on that side suddenly seem to change their views about the effectiveness of markets. Normally they extol the magic of the marketplace, which can brush aside all limits; but... more... - Andrew C (✔)
"In fact, it's possible that solar will displace coal even without special incentives. But we can't count on that. What we do know is that it's no longer remotely true that we need to keep burning coal to satisfy electricity demand. The way is open to a drastic reduction in emissions, at not very high cost. And that should make us optimistic about the future, right? I mean, all that stands in our way is prejudice, ignorance, and vested interests. Oh, wait." - Andrew C (✔)

Domino's Unleashes Its Fried-Chicken-Crust Pizza | Food Experiments | Washingtonian
"Love pizza but wish the crust were more like fried chicken? The folks over at international pizza chain Domino's sure do. As of yesterday, the chain's newest product launched in the Washington area: the Specialty Chicken, a poultry/pie combo that consists of a dozen crispy white-meat nuggets "covered in toppings, sauces, and cheeses."" - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

"Although it’s comforting to know that there are thousands of people out there voicing their incredulity, the fact remains that someone thought that this was an OK email to send. Someone thought this was an acceptable reason to cancel a comedian who had already been booked for a gig.

Ugh. US taxes done; Canadian taxes still to be done. The latter aren't due for two more weeks.
Also, a hearty fuck you to TurboTax in general for lobbying to not simplify US taxes and specifically for trying to upsell me $25 to e-file CA state taxes. I opted to just e-file on CA's own website for free instead. - Andrew C (✔)
