  • The latest arctic ice map. Northwest Passage fully navigable. It's this Summer's chart. The dotted line is where the ice usually goes. But I'm sure someone will say that this happens every year and was more open in the Nineteenth Century, when all those guys died of exposure and frostbite looking for The Passage. In July.

  • "If you shoot the geese that are flying south for the winter, does that mean that winter won't come?" I'm sure that's a metaphor for something, but The Great Dumbing-down has muddied up the irony.

  • It's "be assured" OR "rest assured," NOT "be rest assured." Make any necessary adjustments.

  • These so-called "money crises" only serve to prove what I've been saying all along: There is no such thing as money.
