In case you haven’t heard, John Hughes died this week of a heart attack at age 59. Of course, you probably have heard, because you can’t login to Tumblr or Twitter or Facebook without seeing this clip or this clip or this image or this clip posted about a million times. “Don’t You Forget About Me.” How could we?
In other news, other stuff happened! Here’s a look back at the week that were:
Bill Clinton revved up the X-Presidents Jet and rescued a pair of journos from the icy clutches of the ever-so-ronery Kim Jong Il.
The Wall went up at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Blanche Lincoln stepped in it, tossing around the word “un-American” a little too freely.
No one is buying the Austin American-Statesman, probably because they want too much for it!
Rupert Murdoch will make you pay … pay ever so dearly.
Lou Holtz considered a run for Congress, by God. Then decided not to.
At last, we can scream from the mountain tops that Jeremy Hutchinson is running. For something.
Twitter and Facebook got hacked, and now The Arkansas Project is down, its servers overwhelmed by thousands of David Kinkade’s conservative acolytes seeking their daily dose of Project-y goodness. Here’s hoping it’s back up soon. Meantime, God be with them.
The Blog Hawgs (or is it Blawg Hogs — or why not Blawg Hawgs?) wrote a lot about the, er, Hogs.
