Rage against the machine: Well, it turns out that one of those black-clad doofuses who vandalized the Niketown store in downtown Seattle on May Day was wearing Nike footwear at the time, police say.

And that’s not all. It seems that in planning their May Day action, the anarchists adopted “Just Do It” as their slogan.

23 skidoo and who?:

To make room, the dictionary’s editors dropped “23 skidoo,” “totally tubular” and “just do it.”

Where are all the burger flippers? The oil and natural gas drilling boom in Oklahoma has generated so many good-paying jobs that the unemployment rate has fallen to 3 percent and employers like the state’s Dairy Queen franchises can’t find anyone who will take their open positions.
