Hey, baby, ain't I good to you?: How about this --- a diamond five times the size of the earth

by John MacBeath Watkins

This Just In: "A team of astronomers dotted across the globe have discovered an unusual planet circling an old, dead star about 4,000 light years away that appears to be a gigantic, solid diamond."
Josh Marshall, over at TPM, perhaps the greatest blog ever, adds this.

Late Update: @mseyfang dubs inhabitants "Blingons."
Okay, I've seen How to Marry a Millionaire. I've seen Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend. I've heard the phrase, a diamond as big as the Ritz.  But a diamond five times the size of a planet?

Hey, baby, ain't I good to you.
