New post on Smirking Chimp 2/14/09


Here's the short version of my new article of at the Smirking Chimp.

Blackwater, the mercenary thugs so loved by the Bush administration, wants to change their name to Xe, pronounced "zee".

Catch: There's already a company called Xe, completely unaffiliated with Blackwater.

Oopsie.

Upside: If you bought a Blackwater shot glass at their website, it could become a collector's item.

Matty, I think they chose the name XE because of the Element Xenon which is a "colorless, odorless, tasteless gas". Blackwater is trying to become invisible. I like the tastless part... they are certainly that.
