TigerLilly suggested this one after GypsySoul thought she deserved an Iron Bladder Award, or some such, for superhuman endurance as reported in the Bathroom Break topic. So nominate your pals for silly awards here. Silly but kind awards...

for Snodgrass, for carrying the famous banner 1,200 miles across country-collecting signatures on the way. Brilliant idea, and monumental follow through. Yay Snod, and all who contributed! The good news is that it's not to late to contribute your love to this project-should you have missed the banner, for whatever reason. Snod and perhaps me here in Europe, will be collecting signed patches of cloth, from anyone who still wants to take part. The patches will then be sewn togther as a border for the existing banner. More info on where to send soon. ********************************** Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. Mark Twain
Buddy Plant for being away the longest? "Being away the longest award".......stay here Buddy-you have the killer posters & great sense of humor......
actually I propose the Get Back Home Where You Belong and Don't You Run Off No More award to Buddy, Kid, GRTUD, and a few other long-lost folks I've seen around here lately...
you beat me to it Marye! Of course people come and people go from here, but when long standing members disappear lots of us worry. Now can MarkintheDark come back please. He was all over this place and now he has just vanished...
Mark! We miss you!
I'd also like to thank the academy, and my parents, and all the little people who have made this award possible. I'd particularly like to thank my Great-Grandfather for settling in San Francisco in the 1880's, after migrating from somewhere in Germany, then on to Liverpool, before finally landing in the "City by the Bay". Beats the heck outta Bakersfield...

But am compelled to give him the... Star Squirrel Photographer of the Year Award. Golden nut trophy for your mantlepiece Buddy. Soon you'll have a waiting list of squirrels wanting you to photograph their special occasions. ********************************** Clothes make the man.

Happy 153rd birthday, Nikola! Google is doing a nice tribute for him today and if you head over, there's tons of sites with info on one of the greatest scientific minds that ever lived. Thanks NT, for (almost) everything! "All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet. What a fool I was to defy Him."
Golden Road. And yes, Happy Birthday Nicola Testa.
i dunno if it deserves an award, but the crossword puzzle for last friday had merl saunders as one of the answer (37 down jazzman _____ saunders)....thought it was cool....by the way, the same crossword is found in many papers.
The first annual Galileo Looking Glass Award for outstanding literary achievement goes to (drum roll)... Matt Taibbi! I've cobbled together some bits gleaned from an interview Matt did with campusprogress.org recently and interjected some quotes that I felt enhanced the gist. Matt's articles from Rolling Stone Magazine this year on both the economic meltdown and health care reform are outstanding imo. Thanks Matt! CP: You wrote a column in the New York Press a few years back referring to journalism as “shoveling coal for Satan.” I believe you also said that journalism as a career was worse than being a worker in a tampon factory. Should any sane young person consider a career in journalism? MT: If you have no real knowledge or skill set and you’re lazy and full of shit but you want to make a decent wage, then journalism’s not a bad career option. The great thing about it is that you don’t need to know anything. I mean this whole notion of journalism school—I can’t believe people actually go to journalism school. You can learn the entire thing in like three days. My advice is instead of going to journalism school, go to school for something concrete like medicine or some kind of science or something and then use the knowledge you get in that field as a wedge to get yourself into journalism. What journalism really needs is more people who are reporting who actually know something. Instead of having a bunch of liberal arts grads who’ve read Siddhartha 50 times writing about health care, it would be really nice if some of the people who are writing about health care were doctors. ~ from campusprogress.org ________________________________________ "...there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms." - Hunter S. Thompson ________________________________________ …for these people, with the proximity to power, being able to sit in an airplane with Hillary Clinton or with John Kerry or John Edwards or Barack Obama—that’s like the sexiest thing they’re ever going to be involved with. And it’s a lot of fun for these people. It’s intoxicating. You can’t take some 25- or 26-year-old kid who is just out of college, put him in that environment, and expect him to be totally objective about it. ~ Matt Taibbi from campusprogress.org ________________________________________ "I'm shopping around for something to do that no one will like." ~ Jerry Garcia ________________________________________ CP: ... Rudy Giuliani you called “the electoral incarnation of Tommy Lee Jones’ acid-bath-surviving Two-Face character.” And you referred to Joe Biden’s “creepy poof of blow-dried gray pubic fuzz.” Do you or your editors ever hear from these guys? MT: Yeah sometimes. The biggest thing I get is people not wanting to talk to me again after. Nobody ever calls up and says, “Hey, I don’t have pubic hair on the top of my head.” I mean, what are they going to do, argue? There’s no upside in getting into an argument with a media creature like myself. With somebody who has to maintain a respectable air of decorum like a politician, there’s no winning end game to getting into it with a lowlife like myself. ~ from campusprogress.org ________________________________________ "If we confuse dissent with disloyalty — if we deny the right of the individual to be wrong, unpopular, eccentric or unorthodox — if we deny the essence of racial equality then hundreds of millions in Asia and Africa who are shopping about for a new allegiance will conclude that we are concerned to defend a myth and our present privileged status." ~ Edward R. Murrow

Sir spamalot is back!!
just sends it to the top of the heap in current topics. No real need to do this...
i was just havin' fun
it's always something! It just kinda dawned on me that from the spammer's standpoint promotion is promotion and all attention is good. They probably love to be hated.
... for news anchor reporting on an historic event goes to * cue Mickey Hart drum roll* Stephen T. Colbert and The Colbert Report! (sorry Jon, I still love ya) After watching TV almost non-stop for the last 26 hours and being a full fledged politics junkie... I'm strung out and stressed like some kind of sub-human primate in a dissociative drug experiment and this is good medicine!

I dub Johnman "Sir Spamalot" for his War on Spam!********************************** I am not young enough to know everything. Oscar Wilde

dub Johnman Sir Spamalot, tireless foe of them who oughta know better!
ah din' do nuffin'......heck
I was thinking more along the lines of the Spaminator. What say ya, marye? Wanna take a run at Gov? At least we can trust you around the hired help! Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
Johnman!!! :)********************************** I am not young enough to know everything. Oscar Wilde
spamnoodle spambreathed spammerer....we must send the flying monkeys to steal their beer!!
Where ARE the flying monkeys when you need them??
that's for sure...
but that would be just, plain mean.....
extremly tired, not a sec to rest, that is me
You want a typo award now too, or what? Not to be controversitous or anything!
Spammers making up words now? oh MY!********************************** I am not young enough to know everything. Oscar Wilde
TL, I have to say. If I was sure of how to pronounce it, I'd start sprinkling into conversation just to get a reaction. "Hey, that's some controversitous garden you got growing their, Molly!" "Quite the controversitous call by that ump last night, don'tcha think?" "I don't think that I've ever had such a controversitous time in my life!" "Where'd you buy that controversitous, anyway?"
deleted the spammer accounts and links but left the controversitous post for ongoing derision.
I like it too, Dean! This conversation could get quite controversitous, just as long as we don't get derisoversatious as well! ********************************** I am not young enough to know everything. Oscar Wilde
