Wow, I feel sorry for the kid in this, she is genuinely scared. And so, this is slightly NSFW. Scary, but you can’t take your eyes off. Via Chris in Paris.

As anyone who stops by here regularly knows, it’s just us slogging away with a couple wonderful friends tossing in a post or two every once in a while. We’re going to be crazy busy here in the next few months in the final run up to the election, probably one of the most important elections in our lives, and we need your help.
We have to pay to keep the servers humming (we love a humming server, but then again, who doesn’t?), food on our plates (pasta works), and all the various and sundry bits that pop up when you’re not expecting them.
If you’re read us for a bit, you know that we’re both chronically unemployed and I’ve had health problems that I’ve been grappling with. But, there is no whining in blogging, so we just hope that if you enjoy what we do and have a few coins to spare, that you’ll drop them in the kitty so we can wrap this thing up and get back to business getting the news out to you as quickly and amusingly as we can.
Please, if you can, contribute thru the Chip In button below (it goes thru PayPal, but gives us a running tally so you guys can see what’s going on), the ones to your right in the sidebar or email us thru the contact us page for a snail mail address. We appreciate it!!
Love, Paddy and Laffy
We have an ad at the top on the right, so check it out and see what they want you to know. We also have a link up tonight to Amazon at the right for the brand new book by the President for children. If you are planning to buy it for a beloved child, if you bought it thru that link it would be appreciated. If you wish to support independent bookstores, look here. You can also always make a donation through the PayPal button to the right to help us out or choose to make a monthly donation, and if you are thinking of buying anything from Amazon, just using one of our links gets us a couple pennies a transaction
I think this is good news, but I don’t know enough about how this stuff works. Time to read up.
Reporting from Washington —President Obama on Monday is set to create a national stewardship policy for America’s oceans and Great Lakes, including a type of zoning that could dramatically rebalance the way government regulates offshore drilling, fishing and other marine activities.
The policy would not create new regulations or immediately alter drilling plans or fisheries management. But White House documents and senior administration officials suggest it would strengthen conservation and ecosystem protection.
The initiative culminates more than a year of work by a federal Ocean Policy Task Force, which Obama established last year. After the task force releases its final recommendations, the president is expected to sign an executive order directing federal agencies to adopt and implement them.
