WBC will picket Mumford & Sons to remind this nation they ought to cast down their false idols and worship the one true God.

From the Westboro Baptist Church’s current schedule of protests, which we aren’t linking to for obvious reasons. (This is not your fault, but mine.) By the way, Vince Gill went all Little Lion Man on the WBC over the weekend, hearing rumors that They Would Wait, They Would Wait for him, and Sigh No More, he made fun of them, piercing through their Babel, which has filled many a White Blank Page.

(Sorry for the Mumford & Sons puns. they’re a good attack vector against hate speech, so I wanted to use as many of them as possible in this post.)

National Weather Service fiscal scandal evokes thunderstorm of cheap weather references by SFB staff
Looks like Tropical Storm Beryl isn’t the only storm brewin’: The National Weather Service just had its director step down after a hailstorm of criticism following an improperly forecasted allocation of bonuses to contractors. We’re sure that while those workers had mostly sunny days, taxpayers have a lower level of barometric pressure these days for misappropriated funds — especially $43 million worth, which is high whether you’re looking in Fahrenheit or Celsius. Recently, the storm trackers — er, auditors — showed up. As a result, Jack Hayes felt the humidity rising in his position and got out after the heat got too hot to bear. (Editor’s note: Sorry. We couldn’t help ourselves.)

The service provides cloud-based storage for files but it specialises in Google Docs, allows users to easily sync, update and share documents between others. Its user interface is a neat alternative to Google’s own interface which turns your virtual docs into ‘physical’ files that are housed on your PC or Mac, making them infinitely more accessible and easier to view than through the standard Web interface. (via Insync: A Google Docs-Loving Dropbox Rival)

Could this startup make Dropbox go “Bye Bye Bye”? The founders seem to be saying “It’s Gonna Be Me,” but we wonder if this is a market whose bubble is gonna “Pop,” with DropBox eventually saying “I Want You Back” and making improvements to its own service. Who knows. Maybe “God Must’ve Spent A Little More Time” on InSync.*

With a Parade of fancy fraud cases centered on Wall Street so much in Vogue, here is Chatter about a swindle lacking Glamour but still possessing a certain amount of Allure. A man not a New Yorker nicked Condé Nast, the magazine publishing empire full of Self-esteem, for $8 million simply by sending one email.
The folks who wrote this lede — journalists at Forbes — need to be shot, not for the story itself, but for the awful, awful prose. You guys think you’re pretty punny, don’t you?
