Welcome Disco Stu to the ever-growing number of Warwick bloggers! And to flesh out this post a bit, a random link-dump from my scratchpad (I haven't done this in ages!)
- Make with the blogbitch catfight! Oh yes! This has potential to run and run, and become even better than the ongoing bitchfight between Andrew Orlowski and the ever-sexy Tom Coates.
- Get a grip, Brad. Your exfoliation is Not Important. This is almost as bad as me blogging my lunch, although I should point out that Kottke has also blogged his lunch, and he's A-list, so who am I to argue? Has Sullivan ever blogged his lunch? Somebody needs to do a roundup.
- Bush's re-election ads have caused a huge backlash from families of September 11th victims and others who rightly think it's wrong to use a disaster over which you had no control and which you did not handle at all well as a key element of your campaign to be re-elected as leader of the country you are currently nose-diving into the tarmac of history.
- The Economist argues The case for gay marriage. I love that magazine more than ever, now.
- Atom? Is this any better than RSS? Explain why, please.
- The Loaded Question: a case study.
3) Do you think people realize that the billions of dollars to be spent building and activating the military and rebuilding and repairing destroyed structures and infrastructures will purchase new products (building materials, vehicles, office furniture, cement, telecommunications equipment, etc.), purchase services (architects, designers, waitresses, etc.) and, therefore pay salaries (construction workers, computer programmers, engineers, truck drivers, etc.)?
Yes, and I understand that it will add to the economic recovery.
- Doonesbury is hilarious. Who knew? (One for Deaniacs, LOL .
- Al Sharpton is the comic relief of the Democratic primaries:
"Bush is trying to go from race baiting with quotas in 2000 to gay baiting in 2004," said Sharpton. "The issue is not who you go to bed with, the issue is whether you have a job when you get up in the morning."
Said Sharpton, "let's make a constitutional amendment against presidents that lie."
- A genius analysis of the puritanical american psyche.
- There are good things about the web, and that is what I love it for.
- DeviantART remains amazing.
- Animals on the Underground is a game everyone should play.
