Good Morning: 10.18.12

The Yankees were able to stay alive yesterday thanks to some help from the rain. They will now have a fresh CC Sabathia on the hill tomorrow, though Brian Cashman ruled out CC for game seven.


A-Rod was caught mackin' on an Australian model during a game (my dog), and the Yanks are considering shipping his talent, or lack thereof, to South Beach.


Matt Carpenter and the Cardinals' bullpen overcame the rain to take a 2-1 lead in the NLCS.


LSU Freek and Cuppycake are engaged in a GIF duel over on SBNation. High quality work here.

Terrorism isn't something to laugh at, but this dude is the worst criminal, let alone terrorist, I've come across in awhile. He tried to blow up the Federal Reserve in New York with 1,000 pounds of what he thought was a bomb. He thought he developed his terrible plan with al-Qaeda, but actually recruited an undercover FBI agent instead. Needless to say, his efforts were rebuffed and the public was never in danger. Chalk one up for the intelligence community, in general. Great job people.


Need a new phone? Wait 'till the holidays.


An elected official in Chicago wants to try and curb gun violence by taxing bullets. Somehow, I'm not thinking this works.



A large part of the 2012 Presidential election centers around a crucial economic dilemma between promoting a healthy, growing economy and large inequality for many Americans and citizens of the world. Can we do both? The Economist says yes.
