Cartoon of the week

That's what I hate about this city. You roast in summer,
you freeze in winter, and the rest of the time
it's carnivorous pig bats.

If variety is the spice of life, marriage is the big can of leftover Spam.

Velveeta exists so that vegetarians can have Spam too.

The shopping carts have cooties.

According to studies done on shopping carts, more than 60 percent of them are harboring coliform bacteria (the sort more often associated with public toilet seats). "These bacteria may be coming from raw foods or from children who sit in the carts," says Chuck Gerba, Ph.D., a microbiologist at University of Arizona. "Just think about the fact that a few minutes ago, some kid's bottom was where you are now putting your broccoli." According to studies done by Gerba and his colleagues at University of Arizona, shopping carts had more bacteria than other surfaces they tested-- even more than escalators, public phones and public bathrooms. To avoid picking up nasty bacteria, Gerba recommends using sanitizing wipes to clean off cart handles and seats, and to wash your hands after you finish shopping.

Quote of the day

If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is... If the person has the violated law, that person will be taken care of.
-George W. Bush

Yep. He's a man of his word. Scooter Libby certainly was "taken care of."

Quote of the day

It must have been a sobering moment for extraterrestrials when, performing mind-scans on the humans they had brought on board their spaceship in preparation for establishing contact, they first learned the concept of "lawsuit."

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