Linking Fool Friday

It's been a while.

Here is as fine a high school graduation speech as you will ever read, largely free of fluff and bullshit.

Rush Limbaugh gets called out during Weiner-gate, and doesn't take too kindly to it.

A thing that makes me want to hurl: Senators making themselves bigger experts on esoteric fields than actual experts, for blatantly political reasons.

It's a little distressing to see the Nats' relatively new ballpark near the bottom of this ranking of ballparks based on Yelp ratings. I guess I'm not surprised, though. First, as Silver notes, the Nats have been wretched over the last few years (OK, all of them), which invariably colors people's opinions of the park. And second, it's a very OK ballpark, when you get down to it. Yeah, it's nice enough, but there's nothing truly great about it. Anyway, it's worth noting the drop-off between Nats Park's score and the truly wretched parks underneath it.

A more positive baseball item: Drew Storen thinks the Nats should be America's Team!
