Oh yeah - I forgot that this happened

"The president does not know him, nor does the president recall ever meeting him."
-White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, about Jack Abramoff, the high-powered lobbyist who touched off the largest Republican bribery scandal in the history of Congress.


Time magazine soon produced five photographs of Abramoff and his clients meeting the president on different occasions. Abramoff helped raise more than $100,000 for Bush's 2004 re-election campaign. He is now serving six years in prison and is cooperating with the FBI investigations of members of Congress and the Bush administration.

Usenet shutting down

The Usenet, a sort of alternative branch of the WWW on the information super highway, is shutting down...

Duke University in North Carolina is where Usenet began, and today the institution is shutting down its Usenet server. The college cites "low usage and rising costs" for the decision.

The reason I post this here is that I get a LOT of the images that I post on this site from the Usenet. I don't think there are many who use the system anymore, but I for one will miss it. I haven't heard anything about a replacement - but the possibility exists. There are several large, for-profit companies who aggregate and store the data from the Usenet - maybe they'll join forces to keep it going - or maybe Google will do something to mimic the system.

Otherwise it will take a lot more time to pool enough political images to create a post or two.

Peoples Must Be Stupider Than Evers

It is difficult to believe that in this day and age, there are parts of this country where stupid is the official state of mind. The Governor of Alabama thinks that appealing to that stupidity will help get him reelected. No wonder our educational system is becoming the mockery of the world if this is how our citizens think.

Real Family Values

Real family values include an empathy for others and a progressive view of the world - or some statistics would suggest.

Can it be? One of the oddest paradoxes of modern cultural politics may at last be resolved.

The paradox is this: Cultural conservatives revel in condemning the loose moral values and louche lifestyles of "San Francisco liberals." But if you want to find two-parent families with stable marriages and coddled kids, your best bet is to bypass Sarah Palin country and go to Nancy Pelosi territory: the liberal, bicoastal, predominantly Democratic places that cultural conservatives love to hate.

The country's lowest divorce rate belongs to none other than Massachusetts, the original home of same-sex marriage. Palinites might wish that Massachusetts's enviable marital stability were an anomaly, but it is not. The pattern is robust. States that voted for the Democratic presidential candidate in both 2004 and 2008 boast lower average rates of divorce and teenage childbirth than do states that voted for the Republican in both elections.
