An Independent Round-Up

An Independent Round-Up

We'll give you one guess to try to figure out who's still hung over from their company 4th of July BBQ. (Here's a hint: We woke up just long enough to type up this paragraph and passed right the hell out again in the company parking lot.) It was just chaos last night, folks. Somebody got arrested, a blogger ate a cat and one of the interns woke up covered in a stripper's blood. While we all try to find our keys and dignity, you all enjoy a list of our best articles of the week.

You've gone a whole week without hating anything, let Gladstone teach you how to hateagain. Sick of learning to hate from Gladstone? Let Chris Bucholz teach you how to hate America. Or, let Ross teach you how to hate Websense. Or, let Swaim teach you how to hate Los Angeles. Or, let DOB help you re-hate America. Or England. It's not very clear. Hate hate hate!
