But first we’ll look at the Webblog Awards for 2009.

Well, DUH. They didn’t go to Guantanamo in the first place for bad penmanship you twits. Who writes this crap?
Jan. 6 (Bloomberg) — As many as one in five former Guantanamo Bay detainees are suspected of or are confirmed to have engaged in terrorist activity after their release, U.S. officials said, citing the latest government statistics.
The 20 percent rate is an increase over the 14 percent of former inmates an April Pentagon report said were thought to have joined terrorist efforts, said the officials, who requested anonymity. The officials didn’t provide the numbers on which the 20 percent is based.
14% and 20% dissatisfaction/recidivism rate, huh? Do you know that from the magazine bingo-card responses or online questionnaires?
On to the rest of today’s glop.
They offer several possible results to engaging all the mechanisms… bank account drains, interplanetary war triggered somewhere, or perhaps 15 kittens explode.
I love kittens, but for the pure imagery alone I like the expression “perhaps 15 kittens explode”.
