    • I’ve known about the Jalopnik automotive and racing site for years. I didn’t know they had a military spinoff site.

  3. Danica is back on the lead lap! She fell back early and has been one spot from getting her lap back several times. Now she’s on the lead lap, 21st place, fifty laps to go!

    • She finished 17th. At one point, a caution could have helped, but all she needed about 12 laps to go was a splash of fuel to make it to the end.

  4. 1994’s version of Dick “Head” Cheney explains why the US military didn’t march into Baghdad to take out Saddam Hussein and topple the Iraqi government.

      I want to take them all home.

      • That’s a cheap shot to your own face. That’s one player grabbing the other’s arm and hitting himself in the face with it.

  5. We finally hit 90 today, just for a brief period. This is the latest I can remember getting the first 90, but all next week we’re predicted to make it to 90 or a little over. I had to play lumberjack yesterday, so I’ll have to go out and mow my grass in a little bit. The back yard is three weeks behind thanks to the rains.
