University of Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin announced he's leaving to be the new head coach at USC. I couldn't find any mention on Google News at this time, but lots of tweets are being sent out that civil unrest is bubbling over in Knoxville.

Google News

As a reference point, a Google News search for "Knoxville Riot" at 08:30 EST hit an article from, CNN-SI, and a couple of blogs.

Moderation purgatory

And "yippee!" that my block finally expired (or was cleared). I've been in moderation purgatory ever since I tried adding an object (a Lulu player of "Hey, Ya") in response to Jonathan's comment.

Brandon Berg?

Off-topic: Is Brandon Berg ok? Haven't heard from him in a bit, so I'm curious.

Perhaps his comments are also in moderation purgatory, ready to burst forth in a torrent...

Although I'm not so sure if it's the best one around in the internet since there are a lot of other website options.
