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.

Refrigerator magnet of the day
I like to give home-made gifts. Which one of the kids would you like?
Political quote of the day
The founders of Ben & Jerry's ice cream are endorsing Barack Obama instead of Hillary Clinton. Which makes sense, because Baracky Road is a catchier name for an ice cream than Pantsuits and Cream.

Quote of the day
The word meaningful when used today is nearly always meaningless.
The Net interprets censorship as damage...
... and routes around it.
A practical example of John Gilmore's observation is the Wikileaks site, which had its DNS records removed by court order, but is still accessible at its IP address, 126.96.36.199. Note that the news coverage by the mainstream media is -what a shock- incorrect. The Bush-appointed Court did not "shut down the site"... it just made it a bit more difficult to access. So much for the concept of free speech, though.

Headline of the day
Obama Calls Plagiarism Flap 'Best of Times, Worst of Times'
Tells Hillary: 'Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner'
"Some may never live, but the crazy never die."
With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market quotations, there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.
America... just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.
Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas.
Faster, faster, till the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.
Going to trial with a lawyer who considers your whole life-style a Crime in Progress is not a happy prospect.
I have a theory that the truth is never told during the nine-to-five hours.
In a nation ruled by swine, all pigs are upwardly mobile.
Old elephants limp off to the hills to die; old Americans go out to the highway and drive themselves to death with huge cars.
Politics is the art of controlling your environment.
They don't hardly make 'em like him any more; but just to be on the safe side, he should be castrated anyway.
Today's winners are tomorrow's blinking toads.
The music business is a cruel and shallow trench, a large hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.
There's no such thing as paranoia. The truth is, your worst fears always come true.
The only ones left with any confidence at all are the New Dumb. It is the beginning of the end of our world as we knew it. Doom is the operative ethic.
I feel the same way about disco as I do about herpes.
If you're going to be crazy, you have to get paid for it or else you're going to be locked up.
Morality is temporary, wisdom is permanent.
Last year's fun is today's crime. Even tying your shoes in an airport can get you locked up.
When the going gets tough, the weird turn pro.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.
No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun - for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax - This won't hurt. (suicide note)

Why we're doomed, #611
My mortgage company doesn't know how to spell "principal." I think. Or perhaps I inadvertently obtained one of those interest-only mortgages, and what they're collecting is a fee based upon the principle that any money I'm willing to send them, they can keep. Which would explain why they lost a couple billion in the subprime market last year...
Places I really want to see, #23
And after leaving New Zealand, I'd swing through Tasmania to see the devils, then stop in Sydney on the way north to visit my buddy Bruno.

Matt Groening edition... for those who liked the Valentine's Day quote:

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...
