Blog Till You're Dead As A Dog?

The NY Times has a scary story about bloggers who have heart attacks,
working 24/7 under so much stress they only eat junk food snacks.
To be sure, there is no official diagnosis of death by blogging, and the premature demise of two people obviously does not qualify as an epidemic.
Instapundit has a roundup of amusing remarks.

Sooner or later, I'll have to die,
and when that comes, I plan to try
to blame it on blogging, and then sue
my ISP for damages due.

On the other hand, maybe they're not really worried about blogger health.

Maybe they're worried about the diminishing wealth
of their own paper, which seems to be bleeding
money away
because fewer are reading
their paper today.

And so, perhaps, they mean to frighten
bloggers who think they can better enlighten
as to the meaning of current events,
and are thereby threatening to put the Times in the past tense.

Give It All Back

You've probably seen that Mexican Absolut ad, where a lot of the U.S. goes back to Mexico.

But shouldn't they also run a Canadian version, where all the northern parts of the US go back to Canada?

Was our revolution really legal?
Bring back the Queen and get rid of the eagle!


On further reflection, I see that there's much
logic for yielding New York to the Dutch.
