Here at The Atlantic Wire, we respect and value the social media editors who share the links that make our jobs easier. Sometimes, though, we have no idea what they're talking about. So after a day of staring at Twitter, we're sharing our favorite head-scratchers.
Blind Film Critic Seeing Success - Would you trust his reviews? http://abcn.ws/jyidOd

U.S. drone strike in Pakistan; protests over bin Laden http://t.co/AzpU6gb

James Traub: How Obama became the Jack Bauer of law professors: http://bit.ly/ktuwx8
Traub has obviously never watched 24, since the second half of the piece is all about how, with bin Laden out of the way, Obama can return to the quiet world of liberal institutionalism. Was Jack Bauer ever able to return to anything? No way. And he always wanted to. Once you're Jack Bauer, you're Jack Bauer forever. You can't go back to listening to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon after that.
Because it's important to understand the human side of our enemies. Also, because Al Qaeda might have a Border Collie sleeper cell somewhere in America.
Last year, 95% of all race horses in the U.S. were on performance-enhancing drugs. Should Kentucky clean up its act? | http://ti.me/ktOYZy
Don't blame Kentucky. The Commonwealth isn't doping horses. The Commonwealth isn't forcing them to run at dangerous speeds. They do control the sugar lump trade, though. That's big.
Beware the Ponzi schemer next door http://wapo.st/kiU31x
Solid weekend advice for us all.
