Holy socks, someone actually fell for that Nigerian banking scam. I pity anyone doing business with a law firm dumb enough to hire this broad, and I must ask again how I can know so many honest and intelligent people going around unemployed when dingbats like this one are employed. (Well, she was employed. Not so much now.)
A year ago John Perry Barlow told me that he was concerned that presenting ID at airports amounts to a Soviet-style internal passport. Want to see something else Soviet-style in the airports? Remember: You think it can’t happen to you, but you know in your heart it can. Your hope belongs to another America. There was a coup. That America died.
Support Internet Radio! Take a couple of minutes to send a letter to your Congresscritter, asking for a stay of execution on the unfair royalty rates set by the Copyright Office earlier this year. It’s simple to do and I will count it as your Good Deed for the week. Get to it!
Says here that all the world’s natural blondes will be extinct by 2202 — the victim of a too-recessed gene. Who ya gonna tell all those jokes about then, sparky?! (UPDATE 2 Oct 02: Tee hee, a hoax! Love it. Notice BTW that the debunk comes from a Seattle paper — land of the Scand.)
Repudiating your own founder over her progressive political views? How very corporate-whore of The Body Shop — not the image I think they mean their brand to project, and not an image I will support with my body-care dollars. I told ’em to let me know when they come to their senses; they’ll find me at the Burt’s Bees kiosk.
Check out SammyDMan — a nice kid, an articulate kid, getting threatened by schol administraors for keeping what they referred to repeatedly as a “b-log.” Nice to know this child’s parents’ tax dollars are being well spent to employ utter idiots, and nasty ones at that. I’m hoping to follow up with the writer himself; stay tuned.
Randy Moss: The guy plays when he wants, and apparently threatens cops when he wants. Seeing as he’s so down with the carefree lifestyle, I suggest the Vikings finally step up and give him his walking papers — not only for the good of the NFL, but so the guy can devote even more time to these productive leisure pursuits. (But can we keep a football out of his hands? Oh, wait, he did that himself during the last Vikings game. Loooooooooser.)
