Cartoonaroony: GOP dinosaurs vs. Obama geek squad

Paddy usually covers the political cartoons, but when I saw this in my L.A. Times today, I had to share. I'm a huge fan of David Horsey, and this particular effort was utterly deelish.

Best bonus ever: Moment of Obama Geekitude.

Note: Title and content have been corrected.

Video Mid Day Distraction- Epic Star Trek Apartment

Bummer. Via Boing Boing, more pics here.

Tony Alleyne, the trekkie, club DJ, and "house-modder" who redesigned his British flat to be a faithful replica of the Starship Enterprise? Looks like he may lose it in divorce proceedings. His ex owns the flat, and wants to sell it as "a conventional dwelling," according to tabloid reports.

I did a story about him for NPR way back in 2006 (MP3 Link). I remember him as one of the most cheerfully obsessed Star Trek fans I've ever met (and buddy, I've met a lot of Star Trek fans in my time).

British tabloid The Sun broke the bummer news a couple of days ago, and quoted Alleyne: "To say I'm gutted is an understatement. It is my life's work. I admit there were tears."
