Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the weekend?

Whoooooo doggies, that was one hell-for-leather weekend. And no, I'm not just talking about my outing to WonderCon, which I'll tell you all about on Comic Art Friday.

To catch up on everything that's been everything over this Lincoln's Birthday weekend, hop on the SwanShadow Express for a whirlwind tour of the headlines:
  • Hey, Dick Cheney: Harry Whittington was only joking when he said, "I told you there weren't any WMD in Iraq, you stupid putz."

  • That, or maybe Dick the Veep thought he was supposed to be shooting Dan Quayle.

  • Now shut up and stick to skiing, Bode Miller.

  • Peter Benchley, the author of Jaws, passed away at the age of 65. You're gonna need a bigger coffin.

  • I'd feel sorrier for you, Michelle Kwan, if you hadn't weaseled your way into a slot on the U.S. Olympic figure skating team that didn't rightfully belong to you. You still owe Emily Hughes an apology.

  • Wouldn't you like to think that the Secretary of Transportation has more important things to do than worry about Britney Spears's driving habits?

  • Movin' on up: Franklin Cover, who played the white guy who married a black woman on The Jeffersons, died. In a parallel universe, he might have been Lenny Kravitz's dad.

  • I probably won't rush out to see Curious George anytime soon, but I'm thrilled to see a traditionally animated feature do well at the box office. Like many folks my age, I remember the Curious George books by H.A. Rey with a certain nostalgic fondness. More than those, though, I remember Rey's excellent guides for amateur astronomers, Find the Constellations and the more-in-depth The Stars. Those books were staples of my youthful library. I still imagine Rey's simple line drawings whenever I gaze up at the night sky.

  • I'm beginning to think there's a reason why they call that man Apolo Anton Oh, No!

  • Art Shell, meet Kim Mathers. I believe the two of you will have a lot to talk about.
