Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Weekend Linkee-poo calls Alice when she was just small

Still at work. Hope you're having a weekend.

Wendy's novel outlining omnibus. (Grokked from Catherine Schaff-Stump)

Verizon is up to its old tricks again. Yes, Verizon wants to direct you to their preferred (read: the people who give us more money) sites and slow down others. Drat those old laws prohibiting them from doing that. (Grokked from WannaBeWriter06)

Insurance companies fielding their own teams of firefighters to protect the homes of their insurance customers during wildfires. It's good to know that they report to the incident commanders, but it doesn't sound like they take orders from them. Good thing we have a classless society so, you know, the rich people aren't protected any more than the rest of us. D'oh. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

I wonder if we'll now see the Clean Coal Hyper-Marketing Campaign also address the black lung problem. And while the regulator agency responsible for checking these things basically went to sleep in the early 2000's (Gee, what happened the, Grandpa?), the new MSHA is trying to get regulations with stiffer penalties passed. Guess who is blocking it.

And the Train of Crazy keeps steaming along. "Retired retroactively"? WTF does that even mean?

Alligator Quotient: Whaddayamean they got to go to Comic Con? I bet everyone thought they were in costume.
