MSNBC news alert email: Actor Don Knotts, TV's bumbling Deputy Barney Fife, has died at 81.

More on the Dubai ports brouhaha. John Scalzi, somewhat in the vein of what I was saying the other day, with Incompetence in Action: "It has to do with how Bush's people could be so tone-deaf as not to see how this particular deal could be (to use a singularly inappropriate cliche) a political landmine. Didn't anyone in the Executive Branch look up from the Kool-Aid long enough to say 'Hey, haven't we been telling people Arabs are, like, bad? Is it possible handing the ports over to an Arab company might not play well'?" I'm just saying, I'm not the only one it occurred to. And then, from the AP: Homeland Security Objected to Ports Deal.

(Hugs for Em. She knows why.)
