When life gives you lemons...

The graduation speaker at Wesleyan this weekend was supposed to be Ted Kennedy. But, what with the brain cancer and all, he won't be able to make it. So the class of 2008 will have to make due with the last minute replacement that the university could get on Thursday afternoon to come on Memorial Day weekend... Barack Obama. Even for those of you who aren't Obama supporters, you have to admit that he'd be an impressive speaker to have at your college graduation. And the New York Times, of course, is typically derisive of Wesleyan.

super villain

My sister and brother-in-law have been watching Heroes. So that led them to the topic of what superpowers they would want. And my brother-in-law decided that I can't be trusted with any superpowers because I would just use my power to become a super villain. Besides the fact that I'm just kind of offended, I would also like to point out that superpowers are in no way necessary for super villainy. Lex Luthor is the ultimate super villain, and he doesn't have any powers to go up against Superman. And Lex is the president. Not like those Batman villains who are just going up against Batman - who has no powers himself, just cool gadgets.
