Round-Up: Wednesday, Apr. 7, 2010

News: "People are all upset with Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell because he signed a proclamation celebrating Confederate History Month. The crux of their concern seems to be that the language in the proclamation makes no mention of slavery, but let's be fair: The Confederacy wasn't about slavery. It was about raising up arms against the government of the nation because certain states were upset by the results of a legitimate election. The whole point of the thing was the treason. The slave-owning was more of a side benefit." - The Awl

Pictures: Pictures of the crisis in Kyrgyzstan. A must see.

Watch: Evan Kleiman of KCRW's Good Food has great informational videos you can see here. I personally loved the "Herbs" one because I just bought rosemary, thyme, oregano, mint, and parsley plants to grow on my balcony. I'll have to try her tip in this video of throwing in the blender some garlic, salt, rosemary, and fennel seed to put on almost anything. She also has another video talking about salt, so added to my shopping list is Diamond Crystal kosher salt and Maldon sea salt

Laugh: Possible Lost spin-offs; best parking ticket dispute letter I've ever read, what an honest Facebook debate would look like,

Watch & Laugh: Megan Fox on CA Schools, plus some great Schwarzenegger jokes
