Thought of the day
I stood in my office, the light slicing through the Venetian blinds,
and I looked down at the street. A street of disillusionment, where
con artists and gangsters operate freely under one disguise or
another, the insane preying on the ignorant, but as Thomas Jefferson
wrote in 1798, after one of his defeats, "A little patience, and we
shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and
the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to
its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering
deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long
oppressions of enormous public debt... If the game runs sometimes
against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we
shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have
lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake." Thank you,

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A naked man was bit in the genitals by a police dog while being arrested for running nude and entering homes in a Minneapolis neighborhood. The man was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.
According to police reports, a police canine unit found the nude suspect shortly after noon Tuesday in a house on the 5400 block of Park Avenue South.
While the officer was ordering the suspect out of the house, the suspect began hitting him, police said.
The dog, which was still leashed, bit the suspect to protect the officer.
Officer Ron Reier, a department spokesman, said police dogs are trained to bite if their partner is attacked. However, dogs are not trained to bite in the groin area. Reier said the dog likely just jumped and bit the man, who was moving around at the time.
"The dog did what the dog is trained to do, and that is protect his handler," Reier said.
After the man was bit, he continued to attack officers and police used a stun gun before eventually restraining him, police said.
The dog was removed from street duty while the incident is being reviewed, and the suspect is in police custody, Reier said.

Roll your own
Back in the days when KGB Consulting still existed, the phone calls would start around this time of year... people wanting a KGB Consulting pop-up tetradecagon calendar. (If the business had had as many customers as persons requesting calendars -sigh- but I digress.)
No, I'm not bringing them back; but now you can roll your own. Just go here and follow the instructions.
The site refers to the calendar shape as a "pentagon dodecahedron", but Stan Kelly-Bootle agrees with my nomenclature, since it's a 14-sided polygon, albeit three-dimensional.
Think of it as physical therapy. If you print it out on card stock and paste a rubber band inside, you can pretty closely emulate the pop-up quality of the originals.

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