Horseshoe Crabs have 10 legs.

That's really freaky, man.

...And becomes very suspicious of said human's shoes.

Well, that raps it up for Friday Cat Blogging. Tune in next Friday for more photos of Mitzi.

Check out the Carnival of the Cats at Ibejo.

Mitzi loses interest in the human holding the gray object in its hands...

It's my grandmother's cat, Mitzi, again. This picture is dark because it used no flash, and Mitzi is inquisitive because it is most unusual indeed for humans to brandish gray objects at her and not worship the ground Tsarina Mitzi strides upon. Oh well, she'll let this provocation pass.

CBS is Defeated

Since January 10th, there have been over 1,000 news articles published containing Dan Rather's name.

James Pinkerton asks in Newsday, "Why do Rather and his boss still have jobs?"

David Letterman has a Top 10 list ridiculing CBS news for its failure in Memogate.

The former producer of 60 Minutes, Don Hewitt, has said, “Does anybody really think there wouldn’t have been more scrutiny if this had been about John Kerry?”

Mary Mapes, a major person behind Memogate has been fired. Not just asked to leave, but publicly shown the door. "Terminated." She will never work in mainstream journalism again.

In USA Today, Andy Rooney, of the original 60 Minutes, has said “The people on the front lines got fired while the people most instrumental in getting the broadcast on escaped.”

Howard Kurtz has reported in the Washington Post that political bias is a likely possible eexplanation of how Memogate occured.

Les Moonves has indirectly connected Rather's retirement from the Evening News with his failure in Memogate.

Howard Fineman has said that the MSM stopped being politically unbiased a long time ago, and their downfall has begun.

CBS News has been strategically defeated, and it doesn't really matter what isn't in the report, because everyone who is aware knows what has been left out, and they understand the magnitude of CBS's scandal. They also understand the inadequacies of CBS's response. CBS's reputation has been permanently damaged, and Rather's resembles swiss cheese. This will serve as a lesson to any future journalist that if they try to lie to smear a political figure, and pass it off as investigative journalism, they will be caught and punished for it. CBS lost. The public won.

More Memogate Report Blowback

A great case for the firing of CBS News President Andrew Heyward on grounds of negligent incompetence, from Ernest Miller.

Celestial Convergence Watch

Earlier this night, the moon was very yellow and very low in the sky. I'm positive that somewhere, someone, probably someone drunk, looked at that and thought it was a UFO.
