Yeah, that whole Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz thing probably wasn't gonna happen for me, otherwise. So, thanks, #Youtube.— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) August 28, 2013
Ethanol back in the news:

We want to be shocked or amazed but we're not... they're simply hypocrites:
http://t.co/KAye1WAUPf The anti-war left? Probably got hung up on the subway. Should be here aaaannny minute now.— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) August 26, 2013
Maybe we can incentivize the anti-war left by telling them the protest will be held in a ditch near Crawford, Texas. #Syria— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) August 29, 2013
If we call it OPERATION LINEBACKER, will that wake the anti-war left from their stupor?— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) August 27, 2013
We know how this will play out...
1. Bomb country. 2. Arm rebels 3. Dictator gets overthrown. 4. Loose coalition of Islamists takes over. 5. Chaos ensues. #ForeignPolicy— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) August 27, 2013

Back to Syria:
Obama knew Assad was evil enough to massacre his own people, but he had no idea Assad was racist enough to call his bluff.— LK (@OrwellForce) August 27, 2013
So, we're going to bomb Syria b/c Assad gassed his own people, but we don't want regime change?— Dean R. Riehm (@deanriehm) August 27, 2013
The North Korean regime executed Kim Jong Un's former girlfriend and 12 members of a couple of musical groups. They were accused of selling pornos of themselves and some apparently were found with Bibles on them. One person was executed via a mortar round. Charmed, we're sure.

Just one for that hack-fest that was the 50th anniversary commemoration of MLK's "I have a dream speech". What a shame:
