Dude, Release The Hounds!
Off the Reuters wire: Energy Secretary Says Oil Prices 'Dangerously High'. For some reason, when I first read the headline I thought it said, "Energy Secretary 'Dangerously High'." I thought the article was going to be about how the Energy Secretary (turns out his name is Bill Richardson) had been found in a janitor's closet down the hall from his office furiously taking hits off a 4-foot bong. I expected to see a quote from an under-secretary along the lines of "the President asked for a recommendation with regard to releasing some of the Strategic Reserves and Richardson was like, 'Dude, release the hounds!' He was really stoned." The article, of course, has nothing of the sort; however, I'm sure it's very important.
