#featurerequest for a future journalism job board: I want a running list of free agents and a spot to recommend them, or just vote them up.
Thanks for the smoke, Canada. There better be a big-ass slab of bacon coming our way.

OMG FACEBOOK ONLY HAS A 5,000 FRIEND LIMIT! WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO?!? http://j.mp/byoyNi
My mom, after I sent her a link: “Thank you darling daughter. And, thank you very much, Mr. Roboto, for doing the jobs nobody wants to.”
For @Poynter: ROFL - How Astro the dog, Scooby Doo and insufferable people say “awful.”
Whenever I hear someone brag about being a “straightshooter”, all I hear is, “I want people to praise me for being an asshole”.
