This is a one-off, but we just found it a bit amusing that Alaska Senator Ted Stevens—that guy behind the famously wonky "series of tubes" internet rant—has been indicted for allegedly failing to report $250,000 in gifts from the VECO Corporation. (The VECO Corporation is known for running the Alaska oil pipeline.) We can only assume that Stevens somehow got his analogies crossed and thought he'd been making money off of "click here to win" banners. [NYTimes] Thanks OMG-Ponies!
