More odds and ends. Mostly ends.
Just a couple of quick points before I run to do the Saturday hunting and gathering.
Ah, the latest TomGram
"Down with King George! A July 4th Quiz" by Stephen R. Shalom that I think many of you might enjoy. Hint: It involves The Declaration of Independence
and a certain president. Normally, I cut and paste what I think are the most relevant portions, but in this case I think the 'whole' is better than summing the parts. Besides, for a TomGram, it's not very long.
(new book link), over at Orcinus
, points to some of the latest info on Baby Bush' military records. Looks like another part of a messy background that has resurfaced and refuses to go away. Again, I normally like to link and comment, but I'm having difficulties navigating the site, so head on over and check out his posts for Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of this week. Okay, I will comment about the TIPS program developments that David points to. TIPS SUCKS.
Yes, people should be on the alert for terrorists. Of course, they ought to also be on the lookout for criminals and potential criminals, and they should read Megan's Law
lists and stay current on the pervs living in their 'hood, and probably which gangs control which side of their streets, and they should be ever vigilant concerning corruption in the local, state and federal govts, and...Yeah, they should do alot of things, but beating up or shooting people wearing turbans is not one of them. Only looking for people who 'look' muslim, and then assigning a terrorist label, is worthless.
has been broadcasting the review by scholars of this sessions Supreme Court decisions sponsored by the American Constitution Association. I've caught parts of it three times, but I keep missing any reference to the Hiibel
case. National IDs are almost certainly next.
efforts at site improvements have met w/ little success, but a little is better than none, maybe. I've figured out how to access my web space provided by my ISP, but am still clueless as to how to load things there. I was able to import the Radically Inept
blog into 1st Page for editing, but besides running HTML TIDY
, which did find a lot HTML mistakes, I've not gotten much further there. And finally, I found a really neat template in Publisher, but I don't now how to change some of the imbedded HTML code, to make it do what I want. And, I still haven't figured out how to move the info from Publisher to my web space. Very frustrating. Anyway, it's not all bad, but it sure don't look like it'll happen soonly.
Got to go...
