Wednesday Night Link-Fest

I don't know where Ace is or what he is or isn't copulating with, but as long as he's gone I'm just gonna keep tossing stuff up here so people can have a chance to complain about how he's better than me.

First up, more good news from Afghanistan.
You have to go to CNN to read the whole thing, but I found it at Jawa so that's who I'm linking.

Two civilians thwarted an attempted terrorist attack Tuesday when a vehicle loaded with explosives attempted to crash through the front gate of a U.S. base in the Afghan capital, according to the U.S. military.

The two men, an interpreter and a security guard, dragged the apparent suicide bomber from the vehicle before he could detonate explosives, said Col. Tom Collins, the chief spokesman for U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

"I think it's a pretty amazing and heroic event," Collins said.

Seconded.

Next, you can move over to Hot Air, where they've got something that's more of a downer: Mark Steyn's speech to the Heritage Foundation.

Why is Steyn always so damn pessimistic? Well, stuff like this probably doesn't help:

MOSCOW -- Russia said yesterday it had delivered new anti aircraft missile systems to Iran and would consider more requests from Tehran for defensive weapons, immediately drawing criticism from the United States.

...

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov told reporters in Moscow that Russia had supplied the modern short-range anti aircraft systems TOR-M1.

"We're developing our military and technical cooperation with Iran in accordance with international law and will continue to develop it," he said. "And if Iran wants to buy defensive, I underline defensive, equipment for its armed forces then why not?"

I underline that if an American jet ever gets shot down by Russian weapons, I'll be in favor of bombing Moscow.

In a follow-up to my post the other night about the woman who died in the "Hold Your Wee for a Wii" contest, it seems that the DJs who ran it have been sacked:

A Sacramento, Calif., radio station has fired 10 employees after a woman died in a water-drinking contest to win a Nintendo Wii, the Associated Press and other media sources are reporting.

...

John Geary, vice president and general manager of Entercom/Sacramento, the parent company of KDND, sent an e-mail to reporters Tuesday stating that "effective immediately, the 'Morning Rave' program is canceled and 10 employees are no longer with the station."

Among the fired employees were three morning disc jockeys.

Unsurprising, but obviously appropriate.

My question: Did the contest winner get these games too? (link NSFW)
