Friday Fun

Hugh Muir in The Guardian: The A-Z of Tony Blair

R is for regions. Blair ceded power to Scotland, Wales, London and created mayors in many regions. Voters in Hartlepool were so grateful that they elected a monkey.

Yes, really.

X is for Camp X-Ray, the Cuban facility used by the US to humiliate al-Qaida suspects. Blair faced legal action because British subjects were mistreated there. Many felt they could just as easily be mistreated here.

Bonus Friday Fun: Cowboys for Social Responsibility presents excerpts from the Ponoka News Police Blotter (not to be missed).

One more bonus: Olbermann on Gonzo-Gate
