Wednesday, boils like acid

So I did get that email from the ACLU yesterday – about 45 minutes after (snarkily) making comment on not having done so.

The stories I’ve been watching have turned a bit. Peanut-borne salmonella is supposedly the subject of outrage in Congress – Some small part of me is starting to hope that the relevant parties will actually get their asses handed to them over this. Hoping. It’s certainly a change from what I expect Congress to be doing – like dickering over the draperies. That money figure moves a few billion in either direction every time I see it. Because those few critical billions are all that stand between dark barbarism and ….oh never mind. File under “tax cutty bullshit” and leave it at that. Sometimes the GOP can display the maturity of a 12 year old.

The FCC, apparently to quash the conspiracy theory minded nutters, are now acting to scrutinize stations wanting early DTV switch. Why is this such a big deal in government-oh right lobbyists, I forgot. /P

Howard Kurtz at the Washington Post,about hits the nail dead on.

I’m not an economist, but when Tim Geithner unveils his long-awaited bailout plan and the Dow plunges nearly 400 points, that’s probably not a good sign.

FBI, bailout watchdog expands criminal probes – about damn time.

Who won the Israeli elections? Well, no one.
However, Beiteinu cheerful – methinks forming that government will take a looooooong time.

Don’t forget -fake plastic holiday, coming this Saturday to a relationship near you.
