Five By Five: Vodkapundit's Plan for the November Elections
It's simple, do-able, and would actually help:

• 5-year moratorium on new regulations

Susan Sarandon Working On A Ping-Pong Reality Show
Well her new beau is a 31 year old ping pong player and they're investors in SPiN, a NYC ping pong club. Sometimes documentaries on oddball things turn out to be great, but I'm not counting on this one.

Seattle Residents Don't Do It Very Much
But when they do they like it outside. A lot.

Is the World Ready for the Waterless Urinal?
Maybe. In my last office they had some and they seemed to work okay. Of course the plumbers union hates them.
