Interesting stuff on the Web -- May 20, 2009

Yet another Kennedy is looking for a Senate seat. This Kennedy, though, is willing to challenge others for it and take his chances with the voters.

The voters having shot down by two-to-one margins a battery of tax-raising schemes to cover a huge deficit, Megan McCardle notes that "California is completely, totally, irreparably hosed."

At Donklephant, Alan Stewart Carl asks, "Why we are fat?" and puts the rap on growing portion sizes. But isn't this a chicken-egg thing? We, er, bigger people want big portions, don't we?

JammieWearingFool spotlights a story about why that out-of-control bully, Eliot Spitzer, was hated and feared by most people in Albany long before he became "Client No. 9".

Now, Bristol Palin is on the cover of People magazine with more "advice" for teens. As I blogged before, somebody needs to tell this kid to stay home -- like, maybe, her parents.
