When I first heard of that British dessert I thought it was a form of venereal disease. I want to try it sometime - since I've tried everything, even dog meat - but I just can't bring myself to go in a restaurant and say "can I have the spotted dick?"

My colleague Shaun offers a withering critique of Environmentalism As Usual in the wake of Carl Pope's long-overdue ouster from the Sierra Club. Excerpt:

"Instead of slowing the subsidized onslaught, environmental groups are encouraging it. The Sierra Club recently circulated a petition supporting the American Wind Energy Association's request to maintaining the "production tax credit," which has made the destruction of mountains and desert landscapes and bird life a lucrative cash cow for investors. The Club's petition never mentioned that the tax credit would support wind facilities in California Condor habitat or next to a large population of Mexican free-tailed bats."
