The ink of scholars is weighed on the Day of Judgement with the blood of martyrs and the ink of scholars out-weighs the blood of martyrs.
Muhammed, as quoted in Al-Jaami’ al-Saghîr by Imam al-Suyuti
Dunno why exactly I chose that particular title or the above quote. I am kinda tired, sore and spent, from several days hard work. Well, ya I kinda do know why. I take a few days off from writing articles due to being busy at work, and the market has the worst week it has had since the market bottomed out last March, unemployment went up 2/10ths of 1 percent to 9.9%, despite a non-farm payroll increase of 290,000 jobs, oil is still leaking by thousands of barrels a day from the wellhead in the gulf of Mexico that blew up last week.
And apparently Neanderthals mated with humans and left their imprint on the human genome. Now we finally know where Glenn Beck, Hank Paulson, and Simon Cowell REALLY came from.
Short article tonight. I’m hella tired.

Viddy of the day: Rachel Maddow talking with Dean Baker about the economy.
Quote and pic of the day: I have never seen more senators express discontent with their jobs. … I think the major cause is that, deep down in our hearts, we have been accomplices to doing something terrible and unforgivable to this wonderful country. Deep down in our hearts, we know that we have bankrupted America and that we have given our children a legacy of bankruptcy. .. We have defrauded our country to get ourselves elected.
