Senate Contender in Florida Presses On

Published: June 7, 2006

VENICE, Fla. — Undaunted by a run of horrific poll numbers, staff turmoil and public doubts from leaders of her party, Representative Katherine Harris is thinking confidently beyond November.

Nothing's uglier than in-fighting over embarrassment. And on such a grandiose level too. You know, she only happens to be, single-handedly, one of the tiebreakers in who went on to lead the most powerful nation in the history of the planet vs. who has seeemingly chosen a self-imposed exile as the spokesperson for fixing Social Security because his cronies who want totransfer some wealth have found some scientists who have created "proof" that it'll collapse on itself in 2042. But take it seriously RIGHT NOW because, you know, we can see that far into the future.

Oh wait, he's a spokesperson for fixing the environment because his cronies who want to transfer some wealth have found some scientists who have created "proof" that it'll collapse on itself in 2042. But you better take it seriously RIGHT NOW because, you know, we can see that far into the future.

Silly me, sometimes I get confused about which party in power uses which panic-story because it wants to transfer wealth to its cronies who are paying millions to those telling us how scary the future is to convince that it's okay that they all keep stealing from us.

Enough already, no? (And yeah, I KNOW this was a major digression, but the silliness of the Harris lady running for Senate was a great segue!)

What Netflix Could Teach Hollywood

By David Leonhardt

BETWEEN "The Godfather" and "The Godfather: Part II," Francis Ford Coppola made a movie called "The Conversation." It stars Gene Hackman as a paranoid wiretapper in Watergate-era San Francisco, and the cast includes Robert Duvall, a young Harrison Ford, the woman who played Shirley in "Laverne & Shirley" and the guy who played Fredo Corleone in "The Godfather."

I didn't see anywhere in this article where anybody gave credit to Chris Anderson at Wired, who told almost the exact same story using almost the exact same analogies....oh, about a year or two ago. Just sayin'

Class A Appearance for Clemens, First as an Interior Designer

Published: June 6, 2006

LEXINGTON, Ky., June 5 — When the Class A Lexington Legends staggered into their clubhouse at 3:30 a.m. Monday, bleary-eyed after an eight-hour bus trip, a few of them might have thought they were dreaming.

Clemens is far from perfect, but man, ever since I read about his workouts and work ethic as a high school athlete, I've been a huge fan. Sweet story.

Side Effects to a Remedy for Housing

Published: June 7, 2006

A State Superior Court judge last month stripped two Bergen County towns of their ability to enforce zoning laws and regulate development within their borders. He also demanded that officials read sections of a book by a Harvard professor who opines on fair housing, suburban planning and the virtues of activist judges. It's hard to be sure which of the two actions seemed more galling.

So, so so many ridiculous assumptions and arguments and points in this story. Get the government the hell out of housing so that the poor can afford housing, please. The only way for "affordable" housing to exist is to stop the inequities created by those in power. And that'll only happen when we all clue in to the transparent system of those mafiosos who keep the public convinced that the poor won't have housing unless those in charge choose who builds, who gets paid, where they can build, how much they can build....ah, the sweet feeling of freedom New Jersey style!
