What do you do when you walk out and this rain-wet kitten covered with flies drags itself out of the empty lot onto your property? You think it won’t make it a few more steps and it mewls when you get close and when you get close it’s covered not only by flies but maggots […]
An O&B reader tipped us off to a news item that will no doubt dominate the airwaves for weeks, if not years, to come; it’s likely to even surpass the recent Michael Jackson Corpse-stravaganza in newsworthiness. Yes, something dreadful this way comes, and we’re proud to be the website to unleash it. So shocking is […]
CA’s State Parks Generate $4.3 Billion Annually Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to close 80% of California’s state parks to address the state’s $24 billion budget deficit—even though park visitors pump $4.32 billion into the economy each year. In Grave Danger, Flat-Tailed Horned Lizard Gets a Reprieve The rare reptile may have one last chance, thanks to […]
Larry King, godfather of the softball question, published an autobiography earlier this week, called My Remarkable Journey. In the book, King finally answers all of the softball questions that have plagued our minds since he took to the airwaves in 1913.

In many ways, the first 100 days are the most important time in a president’s career, perhaps due to the lopsided attention and arbitrary, question-begging importance bestowed upon them. If you’re looking for 100-days coverage, you’re in the wrong place. Maybe Maury […]

From SFGate.com: After two decades, the memory of the spill persists for the commercial fishermen and Alaska natives whose livelihoods were destroyed by Exxon’s recklessness. Sadly, the oil persists, too: A 2007 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration study showed that 26,600 gallons of crude oil from the spill are still lingering below the surface of […]
Involuntary servitude—slavery—is alive and well in Florida. Since 1997, law-enforcement officials have freed more than 1,000 men and women in seven different cases. And those are only the instances that resulted in convictions.

Holy shit this is funny: Clips of O’Reilly from the audio-book version of his obviously terrible 1998 work of fiction, Those Who Trespass. Someone needs to do new O’Reilly remixes with such great quotes, in his voice, as: Say baby, put down that pipe and get my pipe up. I would like you to unhook […]
