Office Space in Real Life

Wonkette reports that Friday is sports jersey day for MSNBC staff!

In keeping with the fun casual Fridays we've expanded on the Hawaiian shirt Friday concept and would like to offer some additional suggestions for the next 12 Fridays. You can certainly wear your Hawaiian shirts every Friday of the Summer but if you're looking from some alternatives please review the list below.

The list includes entries like "7/9 70's Disco Day - no hotpants please" and "7/16 Crazy Hat Day." Gawker was first to get a hold of the memo.

I've come across a few other odd things tonight, including Newt Gingrich's Amazon reviews (lots of spy novels and such, via Political Wire). From House Speaker to top 500 Amazon reviewer in less than a decade is quite a precipitous fall.

Then there's the Ryan Reynolds weblog, which currently leads with the following message: "This is not the Ryan Reynolds who is dating/engaged to Alanis Morisette." He says his traffic has spiked since the engagement was announced the other day, and he also denies being related to Glenn Reynolds.

Since all semblance of coherence is now lost, I'll close with my favorite letter to the editor of the week regarding the "under god" case:

To the Editor:

At least Michael A. Newdow's daughter has the choice to refuse to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, because it goes against her father's beliefs. The children of parents who believe in God and creation have no such choice when they are in biology class every day and are forced to learn about evolution.

Might there be a slight difference between teaching students science class and making them recite a pledge, Mr. Shirey? I feel like banging my head on the computer screen when I read stuff like this.
