Conceived above a saloon, delivered into this world by a masked man identified by his heavily sedated mother as Captain Video, raised by a kindly West Virginian woman, a mild-mannered former reporter with modest delusions of grandeur and no tolerance of idiots and the intellectually dishonest.

According to this, I'm a "Supreme Nerd", ranking in the 91st percentile of nerdiness.
I suspect it's my recently adopted all-black wardrobe that put me over the edge.
Better than being a serial killer or a far-winger of either party, I guess.
What a great idea!
The President has a swell idea. The federal budget's too scary? No problem! Don't include the costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and ignore the pesky trillions necessary to fund Social Security after "reform" starts diverting funds into the pockets of Wall Street movers and shakers.
Ok, everyone. Write your Congressmen and Senators and request they pass a law that forces credit reporting companies not to list your mortgage or credit card debt on their reports.
Suddenly, the world's a much happier place, isn't it?

Patriots? Eagles? I was rooting for the Lab mix.
While I did venture out to the local Chicago pub for the annual Super Bowl festivities, it was mainly just to acknowledge George and Peggy for their efforts. The ladies go all out, decorating the bar and making certain the regulars are well positioned. George even bought two new tvs a few weeks ago.
I don't even know if I won anything on the pool. I stayed through halftime, had some of Peggy's peerless thin crust pizza (free!), about a pound of peanuts and three Michelobs.
I returned to my sub-penthouse studio apartment hovel to tackle some nasty HTML for a client and to watch Animal Planet endlessly re-run their "Puppy Bowl", which consisted of a dozen or so puppies cavorting around a large pen decorated like a football stadium. Every once in a while a referee with a roll of paper towels would declare a foul and stride into the friendly ocean of fur to clean up the accidents.
You know, Animal Planet may have something here. If people will watch a televised image of a burning yule log, they'll watch puppies playing. Especially on a Sunday afternoon when there's nothing else on, anyway.
Especially when someone else is cleaning up the poop.

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