Most-updated blog!

Of the three blogs I post(ed) too (this, eurotrip04, and oniondreams), this one, as of this post, has the most posts. Eurotrip04 of course has lots of posts because it's one post per picture, because that was easiest from flickr.

Anyhoo, here's the actual post:

From the annals of Oniondreams

Says Paul Krugman in today's opinion piece,

To understand where the budget deficit came from, you can't do better than the Jan. 18, 2001, issue of the satirical newspaper The Onion, which predicted the future with eerie precision. "We must squander our nation's hard-won budget surplus on tax breaks for the wealthiest 15 percent," the magazine's spoof had the president-elect declare. "And, on the foreign front, we must find an enemy and defeat it."

So, for those of you new to badass title, or just generally not in the know (out of the know?) there was for a short time last summer another blog called oniondreams, which linked articles in the real news that looked more like The Onion than they did like real news. Now, it has come full circle, and the actual news has come to resemble an actual Onion article. Well, i guess it had happened by a year or two ago, but this doesn't change the fact that The Onion pre-emptively reported the actual news.
