big posting day…WWP talks about another great sadness: the church’s heinous treatment of gays. Follow the link to Sullivan’s article as well, it’s a should-read.
Check out this post over at zeros and ones. Pretty freaky implications about cross-species blood transfusions. Someday, you may receive a blood supplement that was derived from an anteater.
Alright, I’m now pretty convinced that PUD is where it’s at. I’ve been leaning yes but wanted to catch some opinions and maybe a fact or two in the haze. Here’s my take: power companies are greedy, and want to monopolize. The government handling utilities may not be perfect, but as long as we need to pay for them, there’s probably not a lot of better ways to do it. PUD will honor existing contracts/employment, though with caveats I’m sure. This will help to sever ties with bad bad Enron and the white house’s good’ole boys. PUDs are more progressive with alternative energy that private utilities (no complaint about Pac. Power here…I get the Blue/Green Mountain/Sky through them…though we can always do better). It’ll piss off people who I think do bad things to good people. Tax increase will be minimal. Thanks for the legwork Jack Bog, BiX, and Emma! So unless you hear otherwise, I’m a go for yes/yes.
Does anyone have any idea what the heck is up with all these spams that have zero intelligible content, in any language for all I can tell. Spam me, that sucks, but now you’re just wasting. I suppose at least they’re not sending l3wd pictures to children. I hate all spammers.
An interesting article on the widely varied conditions of two schools in Iraq. I think that what we learn from this is a reminder of the liberal stance from the VERY BEGINNING of this fiasco. And this is something that is being twisted once again by the lying Bush administration. That we wanted the war to go through the proper channels. Or not at all. But the mad rush, the insanely driven mad rush to shove this war down everyone’s throats using FALSE evidence (which was considered suspect from the first…so don’t act innocent and blame bad intelligence, if I was suspicious, you HAVE to be!). Lately I’m hearing Bush (heh, I heard the Australian heckling on Fox News) saying things to justify the war, like nobody disagrees that the world is a better place with Saddam deposed. Well, I/we never thought we would disagree on that. That was NEVER in question. Now the schools, the suffering, the costs, it’s outrageous, and you lied, and you blew it. Own up. Of course, once again W toed the line between terrorists and Iraq as well…I couldn’t tell if that’s what the heckling was about.
