1) Connect A to B

Eva Mendes, where art thou?
The actress's recent stint in rehab appears to have included an intervention by a celebrity plastic surgeon.
The photo above appears on the cover of today's Parade magazine Sunday newspaper insert.
Compare her now-generic prettiness with her unique pre-under-the-knife look below —
especially her nose, which was her best feature.
In my opinion, at least.

'The client never speaks' — Edward Bennett Williams on why John Edwards should shut up
The legendary attorney — Williams, not Edwards — had only one rule for someone who sought to retain him.
There's another saying, less easily attributable, you've perhaps heard, to wit: "A man who represents himself in court has a fool for a lawyer."
That also holds for a attorney who speaks for himself on TV yet doesn't understand the simple fact that putting a shovel into a hole invariably results in the hole getting deeper.
Sometimes smart people are the dumbest ones in the room.
Edwards's ongoing self-destruction via media is a case study in how not to deal with a crisis.
The only thing that might explain his behavior is that he's retained Gary Hart as counsel.
Got big hair? Barbecue Ball Cap
Think outside the barbecue space.
From the website:
- Barbecue Ball Cap
A backyard twist on a 400-year-old classic
Toque blanche, the French call this imposing hat, a mark of culinary mastery for 400 years.
While we admire the traditional design, we felt it wasn’t as functional as it could be for backyard barbecue usage.
So we created this Barbecue Ball Cap in 100% cotton twill — just as grand as the classic French version, but with a bill that shields your brow from the sweltering sun.
Band adjusts to fit the head of most any grillmeister.
Note: Many toques have exactly 100 pleats, supposedly the number of ways a chef can prepare an egg — we lost count of the pleats on ours at sixty-something.
Includes wicking sweatband.
