Quite frankly I would’ve said ‘C-section before the season starts. I need to be at opening day. I’m sorry, this is what makes our money, this is how we’re going to live our life, this is going to give our child every opportunity to be a success in life. I’ll be able to afford any college I want to send my kid to because I’m a baseball player.’
Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason • Ripping New York Mets star Daniel Murphy for daring to take a three-day paternity leave this week, a period which just happened to coincide with the start of Major League Baseball’s regular season. Esiason, a radio talk show host, has his priorities in check, apparently.

You may have heard about the "Marine Todd" meme, but as shown by this clip from this past weekend’s protests over the Albuquerque Police Department’s shooting of a homeless man, the meme apparently has a ring of truth to it.

I like to think that David Letterman announced he was retiring today because this clip with Bill Murray, Lady Gaga and a bucket list was so amazing and weird that he realized there was no way he could top it.

This drug cures most cases of hepatitis C, but there’s a problem

  • 90% the percentage of cases of hepatitis C that can be cured by the drug Sovaldi within a three-month period
  • $1,000 the cost, per day, of said drug, which has far fewer side effects and is less invasive than cheaper alternatives; the high price has led to strong criticism of the drug’s maker, Gilead Sciences
  • $227B the cost, according to one healthcare company, of the drug if everyone who had hepatitis C in the U.S. used it; that’s roughly three million people
  • $260B the amount spent on ALL DRUGS made in the U.S. during the entire year source

jesustilapia says: did anybody besides okcupid boycott (or kinda boycott) mozilla because of the CEO?

» SFB says: Yes; the whole thing really heated up after the company Rarebit announced it would stop making products for the Firefox Marketplace specifically because of Brendan Eich’s appointment. OKCupid’s boycott came roughly a week later. (Rarebit, led by a married gay couple, expressed sadness that Eich ended up stepping down.) Also, the foundation’s board lost three members during this period, though the members insist they didn’t leave because of his donation. — Ernie @ SFB

I want to assure all of us we going to get to bottom of what happened. Any shooting is troubling. Obviously, this reopens the pain of what happened at Fort Hood five years ago. We know these families, we know the service to their country and the sacrifices that they make.
