Dueling for top spot as the Weirdest Reaction to the Easterflap: fans of Easterbrook's retroactively disappeared column on ESPN are using this ancient post of Scott Chaffin's as a kind of forum to lament the loss of their favorite sports read; and Diana Moon (whose Letter from Gotham blog has apparently once again been consigned to the neverland of the Google cache) has declared (see the comments here) that Meryl Yourish is the "Jewish Al Sharpton."

Oh yes, and the DOS attacks just keep a-comin'! Which is why it took me several tries to post this. Also, I think I am playing another Brighthouse my-cable-modem-sucks game.

Diane has been going ever more wacky over the past 6 months. She's more the Jewish Al Sharpton than anyone else.

Sigh. Andrea, did you HAVE to spread it around?

I was trying to let it die a fast death.

Ha! I like Diana Moon more and more all the time.

Wouldn't Meryl need to be having a really bad hair day to be "the Jewish Al Sharpton"? I'm just sayin'.

I must confess, I don't think Meryl could have a bad enough hair day to have hair that bad.

Ian, I had my hair permed a few times, but it was the long wavy kind.

You know, I'd also have to put on about 200 pounds, which will never, ever, ever happen.

And get a REALLY deep tan.

Oh, come on Meryl. Six months of subsisting on nothing but beer and pork rinds, and a few weeks in the tanning salon, and I know you could do it!

Dare to dream, girlfriend!

Hmmm..., I guess y'all missed my TMQ haiku post with requests on Tuesday.

But that's not surprising given my flagging readership.

Charles: Well, I've linked to it now. I updated my latest post to include it.
