Drip, drip, drip, drip....

The New York Slimes is hemorrhaging. While the rich trust fund kids who own the paper may have to cut back on private jet travel, the smug little twerps who write on the news and editorial pages (but I repeat myself) are actually going to take some financial pain. Revenues are down 10-15% over the past year, and this has been going on for some time. It sucks to be them! Maybe more people would buy their newspapers if it wasn't such a tendentious piece of crap.

The Culture Wars

This is chilling to watch and this is what I am afraid of, here in Obama's America. You say that Argentina is a "far-away country", Mr. Chamberlain? Is Canada close enough to worry you? Either way, the infection of intolerance has already crossed the border: the most pro-abortion president ever, and the demonstrated tendency of his far left supporters to suppress anyone who disagrees with them.

Interesting iPhone Software

I've been using some free iPhone software called Instapaper for a couple of months now and recommend it highly. The idea is that you can quickly and easily save web articles you run across on your computer to your iPhone for later reading. The articles are well-formatted for the iPhone screen and are immediately and comfortably readable with no tapping or pinching to get the text aligned and at a useful font size. Also, reading long text-heavy articles on your iPhone is a lot easier on the eyes that reading it on your computer screen, although it still isn't as nice as reading it on a printed page or your Kindle. And once installed, it is dead easy to save the articles: merely click a "Read Later" bookmark in your web browser's "Bookmarks" toolbar and you're golden!

Henry V Today, or, Dodd Man Walking

Power Line links to the above frankly inspiring video after seeing the latest polls described as follows.
"Just as the economic news was relentlessly negative until the last few days, poll numbers for Republicans were horrific for months. So the GOP should be heartened by the first encouraging polling news it has received perhaps since Lehman Brothers defaulted in mid-September: Republicans have pulled even with Democrats on the generic congressional ballot test, according to a survey by a respected pair of firms."

Oh, HELL yeah!

Bring Cuba in from the Cold

The Brits are saying that Obama will begin to open contacts with the Castro government. I say, it's about time. I stopped caring whether Cuba stayed above the waves or not when the Soviets collapsed. And when the Cuban expatriates in Florida stopped making the difference in carrying the state for conservative Presidential candidates, well, that was icing on the cake. So here's a good office pool question: How long until Cuba becomes another China and starts owning all our debt? Silly Communists! Buying U.S. bonds is for saps! :-) Why? Because they're denominated in dollars and *we* define what a dollar is! We used to pull this crap on the Europeans all the time in the first half of the nineteenth century! (Nelson Muntz voice) HA-ha!
