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.

Military Intelligence strikes again
Windows 7, the replacement for the universally despised Windows Vista, is being released in a few months and is already available for evaluation download. Office 2010 will also be out shortly. So, of course...
WASHINGTON (Army News Service, May 20, 2009) -- The Army is migrating all of its Windows-based computers to Microsoft's Vista operating system to bolster Internet security and standardize its information systems.
The systems change, which includes swapping Office 2003 for Office 2007, is set to be completed by Dec. 31.
No doubt, the migration is being referred to as an "enhanced computing technique." Someone call the ACLU.
And in related stories, the DOD has named "New Coke" the official beverage of the armed services; the Apple Newton has been certified for use by the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and in all recreational venues, beer will be no longer be available- Marines will now quaff Zimas.

Happy Birthday Cher
A girl can wait for the right man to come along but in the meantime she can have a wonderful time with the wrong ones.
I don't know how many more times I can beat this face into submission.
I would have gone home to my mother, but I'm not that crazy about my mother.
I've come back so many times. Someone once told me that after World War III, the only things that will still be around are cockroaches and Cher.
If grass can grow through cement, love can find you anywhere.
If Michelangelo painted in Caesar's Palace, would that make it any less art?
Mother told me a couple of years ago, "Sweetheart, settle down and marry a rich man." I said, "Mom, I am a rich man."
Sometimes I feel like an old hooker.
The only grounds for divorce in California is marriage.
The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing- and then marry him.

Spock has been on many minds lately, and not entirely because of the new film. Big thinkers in both print media and the blogosphere- from New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd to MIT media moguls- have referenced the Enterprise's science officer in recent months, drawing parallels between the dependably logical half-Vulcan and another mixed-race icon: Barack Obama.

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...
