Fashion Week Observed
This fashion week has been entertaining. First, there was the spectacle of watching fashionistas travel to Brooklyn for Alexander Wang as if they were George Washington crossing the Delaware.
Then, the walls at Opening Ceremony ran with chocolate. Fun fact: the show coincided with a cable rerun of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Coincidence? We hope not.

Remember that petition urging the White House to facilitate job creation by building a gigantic Death Star a la Star Wars? With a little help from 4chan, the petition reached the 25,000 signature threshold it needed to elicit a response from the White House.
Less than a week ago, only 7,000 people had signed the White House petition urging the president to begin building a Death Star, the space station/superweapon from Star Wars, by 2016.

And who says the Internet savvy are politically lazy?
