Still kicking Nixon

All the President's Tweets: News junkies would do well to take in the Discovery Channel's "All the President's Men Revisited" on Sunday. In addition to interviews with some of the key players in the Watergate story and President Richard Nixon's fall, the documentary also examines how the news media landscape has changed and how, in the age of 24-hour news cycles and Twitter, Watergate might have been covered today.

Our guess: Deep Throat would have had his own Twitter account and CNN would have announced the arrest of a "dark-skinned" Nixon.


Don't you kids have homework? A Philadelphia skyscraper was set to become the world's largest Pong game on Friday night. The building was outfitted with hundreds of LED lights that would mimic the ball and paddles of the pioneering video game.

The game was postponed, however, when Dad came home and demanded to know "what's this crap and why isn't the news on?"


Can we still get the Bikini Inspector Cards? Gov. Jay Inslee says he may continue to allow the Central Intelligence Agency to use fake state ID cards, even though lawmakers say their intention was to limit such IDs to law enforcement agencies.

Inslee, D-Decoder Ring, said he had assurances from CIA officials that their agents wouldn't use the cards to go across the border and buy beer in Idaho.
