The Post's top ten online stories for 2007 (by page view, I guess) are very weird, not to mention embarrassing. Funny how "Haggard says he is "completely heterosexual" at number four exactly matches his finish in 2006 with "Haggard admits meth buy."

Speaking of which: "Museum to show ax of heroism."

I'll take a Russell Means Columbus Day over a Peace Mom Rose Bowl any time:

There could be some discord during the Tournament of Roses Parade as demonstrators promise to raise issues during the holiday spectacle that has been going on for more than a century. Human rights advocates plan to protest a float honoring the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and anti-war activists, including "Peace Mom" Cindy Sheehan, intend to rally for peace.
You knew Peace Mom couldn't stay retired.

Saturday Night at the Radio!

Information Please, this one with Ben Hecht (30 August 1938).

And since parades came up, Vic and Sade: "No Marching for Sade" (25 February 1941).

Funny review of Arthur M. Schlesinger's Journals by P.J. O'Rourke (via T. Blair).

Update: Michelle Malkin links to the home page of the Rose Bowl protest. Note the typical self-aggrandizement in their appropriation of the anti-Nazi White Rose for their own utterly safe and pointless call for impeachment.
