BBC: "I've got the world's longest tongue!" 

OK, if you like tongues, here's an even bigger one. 

Heard on NPR. "Oy my son went to a psychiatrist and it's not so good," said one Jewish mother to another. "He has an Oedipus Complex." "Oedipus Shmedipus," said the other woman. "As long as he loves his mother!" 

This joke was told by the daughter of the author of The Joys Of Yiddish, Leo Rosten. It makes a great Christmas present!  

Dan Gillmor: "John Robb, who served in the U.S. Air Force special operations unit and is now president and chief operating officer at Silicon Valley-based UserLand Software, has been thinking about asymmetry and its consequences. I asked him how we could use the power at the edges of networks and society to counteract the bad guys." 

John Robb: "Dan Gillmor is onto the right approach to improve our society's immunological defense against terrorism. I have an idea on how to get our nation's governmental organizations to work together to improve their responsiveness to acts of terrorism. K-Log knowledge networks. This is how Silicon Valley can contribute to this war without stomping on personal privacy." 

Gretchen Morgenson: "The last of the Internet imposters overheated stocks posing as growth companies has at last been unmasked."
