Riot dog

Monday, October 31st, 2011

You may have heard about the famous riot dog that’s become a symbol of Greek resistance (or Greek mayhem, depending on your point of view). Well, check out these photos. And this being Halloween, be sure to check out the very last one on the linked page.

Famous riot dog of Athens confronts police in a cloud of gas

I’m surprised cops haven’t puppycided him yet.

Monday miscellany

Monday, October 31st, 2011
  • The road from self-reliance to self-pity.
  • Whole gangs of “constitutional sheriffs” in Northern California? Wonders never cease. (Too bad this intriguing article never gets around to mentioning the very important state of Jefferson.)
  • Via Wendy McElroy: You’ll never believe the latest group the FBI considers a threat. (I’m going to have to create a new topic category for Stupidity Above And Beyond the Call of Even the Government.)
  • While I don’t agree with this writer’s snarky take on Occupy Wall Street, it sure does seem some young lefties are learning some real-life lessons. Including one right out of Atlas Shrugged.
  • Scott Olsen update.
  • Hard to know whether to say OMG on this Stupid Government Trick or what the hell did you think would happen when you got in bed with the regulators in the first place.
  • Speaking of getting in bed with the wrong people … lessee, you get yourself on a TV show that’s promoted as being all about “drunken dares … to war-like fights and sexcapades” … then you claim they didn’t treat you nice???
  • Let us focus on a more intelligent species: The six best dog Halloween costumes on the Internet. Plus two, courtesy of Joel.
  • Steve Jobs’ wonderful last words. And a touching eulogy from his sister.
