It's Friday the 13th! Time for some cheesy horror movies, pointless superstition, and choice linkage...
‘Affluenza’: Rich Teen Gets Light Sentence for Murder After Claiming He’s Not Used to Consequences [Mediaite] - Seriously, if this isn't evidence that there are truly two Americas, I don't know what is.

Firm that employed fake interpreter at Mandela service has ‘vanished’ [WashPost] - How in the heck does something like this happen? How does a fake interpreter (who was once charged with MURDER!) get within arms length of the President? What the heck was the Secret Service doing?

As House passes budget deal, Boehner criticizes tea party [WashPost] - So TanMan and Co finally decide to put their boots down and tell the Tea Party where to take their tyrannical asses. Personally, I think this is about 4 years too late, but whatever. What's hilarious is that the GOP seems to think this will help their case in 2014. It won't.

U.S. considers cellphones on flights but no calls [WashPost] - I'm glad some common sense prevailed. So you won't have to worry with some moron sitting next to you jabbering on the cell phone your whole flight. You will have to watch that moron Skype, which is another issue altogether.

Insisting Jesus Was White Is Bad History and Bad Theology [TheAtlantic] - I couldn't have said this better myself.

Mega Millions Jackpot Hits $400 Million [Time] - Yeah, I played. You?
Question: What's on your mind today? Drop some links, start a convo.
