Why ya gotta hate on the hair

The one guy also had a wandering eye, hence my loyalty to them as a young dude.

From Eddie Murray to Edward Murrow

Keith Olberman does his best Murrow, and it's worth the look/listen. I still wish he was on ESPN though.

Yes Men strike again, spotlight HUD's failures

ENNER, Louisiana (CNN) -- A man who pulled a hoax on Louisiana officials and 1,000 contractors by presenting himself as a federal housing official said Monday he intended to focus attention on a lack of affordable housing.

"We basically go around impersonating bad institutes or institutes doing very bad things," said the man, who identified himself as Andy Bichlbaum, a 42-year-old former college teacher of video and media arts who lives in New York and Paris.

"That would be HUD. At this moment, they're doing some really bad things."

Masquerading as Rene Oswin, an official at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Bichlbaum followed Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to the lectern Monday morning at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner.

Hangover newsflash: U of Texas-Austin tops party school list

AUSTIN, Texas - The Texas Longhorns earned another national title Monday, not for football but as the country's best party school.

The University of Texas at Austin beat Penn State University, West Virginia University and last year's winner, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in the Princeton Review survey of 115,000 students at campuses around the country.

It topped the overall list — its first time atop the Princeton Review chart — by ranking second in the use of hard liquor, third in beer drinking and 13th in marijuana smoking.

For the ninth straight year, Brigham Young University was voted the most "stone cold sober" school.

UT spokesman Don Hale said campus leaders don't take such rankings very seriously.

"I know there were a lot of good parties here after we won the national football championship, and I'm going to guess that a lot of the kids who filled out the survey remembered those parties," he said.

Student body president Danielle Rugoff said the school had a vibrant social scene even before the top ranking. With about 1,000 student groups, including more than 50 social sororities and fraternities, it's easy to find a way to unwind after a long day of studying, she said.

"It's such a unique environment," said Rugoff, a senior government major. "It allows for students to just live life to the fullest and have such a rich academic environment and rigorous academic program and still have an amazing time and enjoy being in college."

The party school list is included in the Princeton Review's "Best 361 Colleges" guide, which goes on sale Tuesday. The company is not affiliated with Princeton University.

It contrasts with U.S. News and World Report's annual guide to "America's Best Colleges," where UT-Austin tied with four other schools in 47th place.

Rugoff said administrators and student leaders work hard to help students make good decisions about alcohol and drugs.

Despite those efforts, a freshman died of acute alcohol poisoning in December as a result of fraternity hazing.

Tests showed Phanta "Jack" Phoummarath's blood alcohol level was 0.50 percent, more than six times the legal limit. University officials canceled Lambda Phi Epsilon's status as a registered student organization until 2011 after an investigation found new members were expected to drink large amounts of liquor.

The author of the Princeton report, Robert Franek, said the lists are simply meant to provide more information for high school students.

"It's simply finding that community both inside and outside of the classroom that I think is the challenge for many students," he said.
