$25 million? I don’t get out of bed for less than $40 million.

South Dakota resumes executions after 60 years.

Headline of the day, from the BBC: “Czech Castration Raises Worries.”

(Later): spoke too soon. Also from the BBC: “Pygmies Housed in Congo Zoo.”

The Senate voted to double the reward for the capture, dead or really, really dead, of Osama bin Laden, in case there was someone capable of doing that, but for whom $25 million was chump change.

Another New York Magazine competition. I only have three more. Does anyone have some old clippings (or a large stack of pre-2000 back issues in a closet somewhere) they’d like to share with the class?
