Venue Change

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

Things change here as of today.
I started this blog in July of 2005, and have published at least one post a day since June of 2006. During that time I have guest blogged or co-blogged at a few notable places: HorsesAss.org, Jesus’ General, Blatherwatch and Upper Left.
Things are changing. [...]

Snowy Seattle Commute

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Big fat lazy flakes have given way to little flurries in a hurry as I pass the Microsoft Redmond campus. Traffic is mostly crawling, even for my bus in the HOV lane.
So I am testing out the blogging software on my android phone.

That’s OLD!

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

One of Washington state’s longest-running political blogs is Peace Tree Farm whose proprietor is known by the moniker N in Seattle. Today, N turns 60!
Happy birthday, N…here’s to 60 more!

NewsBuster UberFail

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

The Dumb-Ass-O’-The-Day award goes to Noel Sheppard of NewsBusters. Noel watches a video of Rachael Maddow mocking Gov. Christie for making a simple math error, and then concludes that she makes THE VERY SAME ERROR as Gov. Christie. Could it be? (I mean, outside of a Wingnut wet dream?) [...]

My nomination is for this one by Josh Marshall.

Friends and Followers

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

If you ask me, this is far more likely to be something the CIA set up…. But it does raise an interesting legal issue. Can one be prosecuted—or, worse yet, declared an enemy combatant—for “friending” bin Laden? And is this worse than being a “follower” on an alternative medium?

FTC Regulates Bloggers

Monday, October 5th, 2009

So, I am sitting here reading away blissfully on my snazzy Samsung NC10 netbook (with a new Crucial 2 Gig memory upgrade), and sipping a delicious mug of insta-coffee from my Philips Senseo coffee maker, and I come across this article:

The FTC will require that writers on the Web clearly disclose any freebies or payments [...]

Breaking: Obama Not Familiar with Provision that Doesn’t Exist in House Bill!

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Imagine, if you will, a conference call between Obama and a bunch of bloggers. And one of the bloggers asks a question about a provision in the health care legislation.
“I read that elderly individuals whose health care costs exceed the value of their potential contributions to society would be ground-up and used as fuel [...]

No Kidding

Friday, July 3rd, 2009

Paul Krugman points out the (apparently) intentional lies from the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal:

[T]he WSJ editorial page has been like this for 35 years. Nonetheless, it got me wondering: what do these people really believe?
I mean, they’re not stupid — life would be a lot easier if they were. So they know [...]

What’s with the Amateurish WSJ Editorial Board?

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

When I read this Wall Street Journal editorial on the Minnesota Senate race this morning, I was annoyed by the abundance of factual inaccuracies and the amateurish feel. It was written at the level of an inexperienced—and angry—blogger whose high emotional state has prevented an objective examination of facts.
It looks [...]

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

Congrats to Goldy and Horsesass for earning the title of Washington state’s best political blog from Chris Cillizza.
(Full disclosure…I blog there, too, but it’s, like, totally Goldy’s doing…totally. Really.)
