It looks like the axis of evil has a new member.
I’m watching a police chase on KCAL. I’ve been watching it for over an hour. I feel so trashy… but I can’t take my eyes off. :)
UPDATE, 10:49 PM: The driver has managed to evade five spike strips so far. (He’s driving at like 30 miles per hour.)
UPDATE, 11:06 PM: People are going to the freeway overpasses to watch the chase live. Well, I would do that too, if it wasn’t in Glendale. :)
Earlier, this guy drove through a movie set and almost hit a leer jet prop.
Oh, and this is the second police chase today in Los Angeles.
UPDATE, 11:11 PM: They just successfully got him with a spike strip, so his right tires are flat — and his left rear tire fell off. And he’s still driving!
UPDATE, 11:14 PM: I wish this guy would stop. I have to go to the bathroom, but I don’t want to leave because I might miss the dramatic conclusion!
UPDATE, 11:23 PM: He just gave up.
A major breaking news story? I’d rather be golfing.
University of Connecticut men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun was diagnosed Friday with prostate cancer, and he announced Monday he will have surgery Thursday to “attack this thing,” the UConn Daily Campus reported. Calhoun is taking a leave of absence from the team, and is expected to be off the sidelines for three to four weeks.
It all started with an InstaBoost. Then came the domino effect, in the form of links from Cursor.org, Slate, MSNBC, and others. The result: nearly 5,000 hits in the 30 hours since InstaPundit put me on the map. That’s roughly 40 percent of all this site’s previous hits — ever — since Feb. 23, 2002.
The final daily total for Feb. 3, 2003 was 3,326 unique hits — a record that seems likely to last for a while.
