    William K. Wolfrum’s Morning – June 21, 2010

    BP CEO Tony Hayward, relaxing at home with the small people now that he has his life back.


    Burn it all: Burning of oil in the Gulf of Mexico means death to wildlife. Also, there’s a lot more oil gushing than previously reported.

    Politicizing the Oil Spill: It was all bi-partisan teamwork on the oil disaster until Democrats started mocking Joe Barton.

    Let Them Drill: There’s no evidence that Deep Water drilling is risky, say plaintiffs.

    Israel Eases Gaza blockade: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that easing the Gaza blockade will weaken Hamas. Maybe they could have figured that out pre-flotilla massacre.

    Also: Rapper “The Game” shot and killed, humanitarian and former NBA fan-favorite Manute Bol dies.

    Odd News

    A Heady Day: Finally, we can answer the age-old question – how many human heads can you fit into three boxes?

    Catholic Priorities: Remember, it’s much worse for a comedian like Louis CK to make jokes about pedophile priests than it is to defend pedophile priests.

    Today in Tasering: Not wearing a seat belt? Tase him!

    Put the camera away: If you happen to be being beaten by a Maryland cop, for God’s sake, don’t film it.


    Brazil Handily Wins: Luis Fabiano scored twice (albeit once illegally), as Brazil continued South American domination of the World Cup with a surprisingly easy 3-1 victory over Ivory Coast. Brazil’s only complaint? Kaká being tossed from the game for allowing an Ivory Coast player to run into him.

    Anarchy in France: At the 2010, the French can’t win a game and is in the midst of a player revolt. Couldn’t happen to a nicer group.

    U.S. Open to McDowell: Graeme McDowell survived a tough Pebble Beach to win golf’s U.S. Open, leaving big names like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els in his wake.


    Tomfoolery: My Day with Karl Rove.

    EZKool: If you watch only Fox News, you know for a fact that the British Petroleum Oil Spill is all the Federal Government’s fault.

    Political Carnival: Blackwater forced to pay the price for their sins – by getting a new $120-million government contract.

    Pam’s House Blend: What you missed this weekend.

    Tweet of the Day

    Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes Mark Kirk’s resume.”
