For the record

If the Clippers win the Pacific dividion for the 2006-2007 season, Pat owes me a pitcher at Delerium. If they do not, I owe Pat a pitcher. Further, if the Lakers and the Clippers meet in the 2007 playoffs, Pat owes me a pitcher at Delerium should the Clippers win and I owe pat a […]

Because we’ve nothing better to do

Our lovely senate (co-led gleefully by asshat California senator Diane Feinstein — keep this in mind next time she claims to have a clue) is voting today on a constitutional amendment to allow congress to place arbitrary limits on the first amendment. Yeah, it’s the flag burning amendment. I’ve got a certain cognitive dissonance about […]

Is the National Academy of Sciences a terrorist group?

In a report to congress, the National Academy of Sciences had the gall to contradict well-established science fiction and suggest that the earth is hotter than it should be and it’s that way because of human activity. The Earth is the hottest it has been in at least 400 years, probably even longer. The National […]

BillG

Joel’s commentary on BillG is amusing. Watching non-programmers trying to run software companies is like watching someone who doesn’t know how to surf trying to surf. “It’s ok! I have great advisors standing on the shore telling me what to do!” they say, and then fall off the board, again and again. The standard cry […]

Three cheers for the 1947project!

My favorite kooky preservationists over at the 1947project updated their site recently. Everybody loves a good redesign, and it’s got the obligatory Powells advert, so you know it’s cool. The best part, for me at least, is that they now seem to have a full RSS feed so I’ll actually, you know, read their stuff. […]
