Reasons to Party!
If you act quickly, there's still time to send nominations for the History Carnival (#27) and the Teaching Carnival (#7) that go up tomorrow at Rob's History: Other and at The Salt-Box. Nominations of exemplary posts in history that have appeared since 1 March should be sent to: rob*at*ifanything*dot*org. Directions for making nominations for the Teaching Carnival are here.
On another front, Stephen F. Hayes of the Weekly Standard announces that the Bush administration has finally agreed to the release of documents and digital data captured in Afghanistan and Iraq. This comes at the end of a long campaign by the Weekly Standard for the release.
Finally, Caleb McDaniel and Nathanael Robinson have crawled out of their hidey-holes. While waiting to defend his dissertation, Caleb reviews Allen Guelzo's Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President; and Nathanael sends you a picture of his randy rabbitt, Milli. Do not even think about the ways in which a dissertation committee is like a randy rabbitt.

Oh, that's too good to pass up....
There's the obvious and obscene (splitting hairs), the blatant zoological/satirical (tendency to overproduce offspring), the disturbing zoological/satirical (in times of crisis, females reabsorb or eat their young), the twisted (their idea of editing? they cut off your foot, if you're lucky).
That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I hope Chris Bray and Manan Ahmed weigh in on this one, though: they're much funnier than I.
