Quotes of the day

A politician should have three hats. One for throwing into the ring, one for talking through, and one for pulling rabbits out of if elected.

I am an idealist. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way.

I tell you the past is a bucket of ashes.

Life is like an onion: you peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.

Our lives are like a candle in the wind.

Slang is a language that rolls up its sleeves, spits on its hands and goes to work.

Sometime they'll give a war and nobody will come.

The greatest cunning is to have none at all.

The history of the world and its peoples in three words: "born, troubled, died."

There are some people who can receive a truth by no other way than to have their understanding shocked and insulted.

There is an eagle in me that wants to soar and there is also a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

Yesterday is done. Tomorrow never comes. Today is here. If you don't know what to do, sit still and listen.

I won't take my religion from any man who never works except with his mouth.

Six feet of earth make us all one size.

There are people who want to be everywhere at once, and they get nowhere.

Time is the storyteller you can't shut up.

Signs of the Apocalypse, #820

15 Mile Long Alaskan Blob Of Goo Baffles Experts

Here's what we do know...
1. It's 15 miles long.
2. It's not oil.
3. It's organic in nature, so it's alive (sort of).
4. It appears to be growing larger.
5. It's not affected by extremely cold temperatures.
6. AND, it's "eating" things that fall on it or that it envelopes as it slowly travels the Arctic Ocean.
I am officially terrified.

The state of television news, 2009:

Putting it in perspective

Those under the age of 40 might not appreciate the influence the late Walter Cronkite had on our perception of the news.

The population of the US today is about 306 million. The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams the top network news program, averages about 8 million viewers, which means it reaches about 2.6% of the population.

When man landed on the moon in 1969, the population was about 202 million. Forty-five percent of those watching the moon landing followed Cronkite's marathon 27-hour coverage of the event. His regular evening news had twice the ratings of today's, with a third less televisions tuned in.

Cronkite was part of a generation of journalists whose felt their responsibility was not only to inform but to educate. When he spent 14 minutes explaining

The only television "news" program I can tolerate these days is The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, which nightly points out the excesses and failures of the modern broadcast media:

There's something fundamentally wrong when Jon Stewart is now the most trusted man in America.

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
