Paul Krugman with some moralizing on the moralizers. As a friend said over the weekend, "You can't be a fiscal conservative and support Medicare D." Or as I say, "You can't be a fiscal conservative and not want to end the Bush era tax-cuts." Neither were paid for. Both caused massive damage (the first by funneling legislative overpayments to the insurance sector - ie. Republican lead congress instilling fraud within the system, fabulous, and second by taking us from surpluses being used to refuse the debt to record deficits in record time).
Hey look, statistics in the wild! That's a technology review article on the use of fake Twitter accounts to simulate "political grass roots movements."
And, it may be a bit late for you, but I remember. Part of the reason I am no longer a conservative (that, and being driven out by the whackaloons). Thanks, Jeff, I remember too.
Jim Hines talks about the still prevalent caveman philosophy of business. It's almost as if the 90s never happened. Seriously, if your company hasn't gone through sexual-harassment training by now, several iterations of with, you all just aren't up to speed with the 90s. When going to work, turn on telencephalon, turn off the limbic system (except hippocampus). Can you tell I just had a test over the neural system? In plain talk, switch on the upper brain and ignore the lower/base impulses. Or, when putting on a tie, it shouldn't cut off the big brain and allow the little brain to rule.
And linked to from Cherie Priest, I'm Going to be a College Professor. One of those talking head videos. OMG, how farggin' true. Bangs head on table laughing so hard. "So, will you write me a recommendation?" I'm going to have to show this to Bette. I don't know if she'll cry or laugh.
