Politician's Syllogism

As explained by wikipedia:


We must do something

This is something

Therefore, we must do this.



Which is ultimately why I am distrustful of trillion dollar bills rammed through Congress, even though I think we do need something.

Google Marks Whole Internet Malware

Seems to be fixed now. stopbadware.org was down this morning (which Google partners with to warn of bad sites), and Google defaulted to marking everything as malware, even itself.

UPDATE

Unfortunately (and here's the human error), the URL of '/' was mistakenly checked in as a value to the file and '/' expands to all URLs. -- Google Blog

Milestone

It's taken less time for David Paterson to choose a successor to Hillary Clinton then for James to hear back about whether or not he's got a job he interviewed for 2 months ago.

Your tax dollars at work, grinding away slowly.

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

This one is for (e:james)

image

On Amazon:

As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton-and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she's soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead.

Inauguration Day

For me, the best part of today is not that it's Obama's first day in office, but instead that it's the 43rd time that power has been transferred peacefully between presidential administrations. Obama is the 44th president in a chain stretching unbroken back to the founding of our country.

It's easy to forget what happens in some other countries. Seeing what happens in Zimbabwe and Myanmar, it's a relief to me to live in one of the countries that's moved beyond institutionalizing personal or party power above all else.

So, cheers to all the Presidents, Washington through George W Bush, who have stepped aside and let the political process govern who gets power.

We're not a perfect country, but we do get many things right and this is one of them.
