The day I was blocked by Keith Olbermann

Today I got blocked on Twitter by Keith Olbermann.

I shall choose to look on this as an accomplishment.  Since some time Saturday, Keith Olbermann has been blocking feminist tweeters using the tag #MooreandMe and directing calls to Keith Olbermann (@keitholbermann) and Michael Moore (@mmflint) for retractions of and apologies for the deliberately inaccurate information they they aired via Twitter and cable T.V. to hundreds of thousands of their fans.

I don’t have any finished book reviews and my shoulder is giving me grief again after feeling better at the end of last week, so today you get links instead! Isn’t this fun? 😉

I’ve done something to my shoulder, and typing up a review today has just not been possible.  Not much of anything besides sitting watching tv with an ice pack has been possible.  So instead of writing I’m watching Princess Bride, and hoping to be up to typing tomorrow.
