New York Times Slapping Down the Paywall

They said they were going to do it and they have kept their word. Today, the New York Times slapped a paywall on their site effective March 28th in the United States (Canada gets a head start on the whole paying thing because, hell, whose afraid of Canada complaining). That intake of oxygen you heard […]

I Was A Very Dangerous Boy

I know we live in a heightened state when it comes to written comments or pictures directed at anyone which could be considered a threat. I understand to ignore something is a ridiculous thing to do. We have seen far too many tragic events which could have been stopped if warning signs had not been […]

I have no idea what I am going to do […]

The X-Files South Carolina Style

South Carolina is the gift which keeps on giving. I mean I don’t think I have ever had more fun following another state’s election. It has gotten so good it is the first thing I search for any time I have a few extra minutes on the internet. First, Alvin Greene wins the Democratic primary […]

South Carolina Politics is Awesome Sauce

> Election day is so wonderful. Nothing like the constant reminder we really don’t have a choice in our fake democratic society. The Democrats will pick their bozos for us to choose from. The Republicans will run out their bozo candidates and somehow we have to figure out what bozo won’t screw us the most. […]

Geeking Out With My Towel

> I think you ought to know I’m feeling very depressed – Marvin the Paranoid Android. This really sums up my week. It seems like nothing is going right and yet I know it is so much worse for others. Sometimes I get mad at myself for falling into the trap of depression. Marvin really […]
