Anti-Koch writer Jane Mayer quotes from a nonexistent AFP pledge, blames it on an editing error, and then attacks +Phil Kerpen.

"My concern from day one is that this is a very simple straightforward self-defense case, yet it's been turned into what one of the people has said is the greatest civil rights trial of the century," Mark O'Mara told "Nightline" anchor Dan Abrams. "It's absurd. This is still ... just a 'stand your ground' self-defense case." WATCH #ZimmermanTrial LIVE  http://abcnews.go.com/live

Fished this ball out of the water yesterday. I get the feeling it's been in there a while.

Star Wars + Shakespeare = pure awesomeness.
An excerpt from William Shakespeare's Star Wars®: Verily, A New Hope by Ian Doescher, published this month by Quirk Books. ACT V, Scene 5, lines 279-329. Space. BIGGS           Make haste, O Luke. Methinks they do approach                     E’en faster than before. I shall not hold                                           ...

A whole lot to take issue with on this list, but a fun read.
I realize you're going to spend Independence Day happily drinking whatever cold adult beverage you're served, because you're polite and you're an alcoholic. And I trust you'll have a fine old time no matter what you drink. But that doesn't mean America's shitbrews are all the same. The list below breaks down 36 of them, from worst to least-worst.

I like the respect PBR gets here. Can't let the hipsters steal a great american beer from us.

Via +Ben Domenech, 1000% of this:

“We are obliged to conclude that the Declaration of Independence represented the movement of a people. It was not, of course, a movement from the top. Revolutions do not come from that direction... The preponderance of all those who occupied a position which took on the aspect of aristocracy did not approve of the Revolution and held toward it an attitude either of neutrality or open hostility. It was in no sense a rising of the oppressed and downtrodden. It brought no scum to the surface, for the reason that colonial society had developed no scum. The great body of the people were accustomed to privations, but they were free from depravity. If they had poverty, it was not of the hopeless kind that afflicts great cities, but the inspiring kind that marks the spirit of the pioneer. The American Revolution represented the informed and mature convictions of a great mass of independent, liberty-loving, God-fearing people who knew their rights, and possessed the courage to dare to maintain them.” – Calvin Coolidge
