Ok, now I am serious about my computers, and to be honest, there are few things I would hate more than having to deal with a Macintosh. But when a teenage boy throws his PC out the window because he wanted a Macintosh… well even I am not that hardcore. Of course if he were my kid, he wouldn’t have any computer for quite….some…time.
I have made my opinion known on what I think about mandatory vaccinations for HPV. Mr. Big Dubya over at DadCentric gives the most reasoned and well thought out arguments against mandatory innoculations, that I have seen yet. I don’t agree with his conclusions, and Cape Buffalo give an excellent rebuttal as to why, but if our lawmakers actually showed this much thought on the subject, I might actually belive they were considering this matter on the merits, and not how it will affect “their base” and campaign donations.
As springtime and summer draw near, so does the time of year we start looking forward to vacations. Career and Kids has a nice primer on how to Decompress after a vacation and deal with those back to work blues.
I guess I never got around to pointing out that Bill O’Reilly got uninvited from a fundraiser dinner for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, because of some aweful remarks this hate monger made against Shawn Hornbeck, claiming the kid that was abudcted for 4 years, “liked it.” That didn’t stop Oprah from having him on as a “champion” of protecting kids, but the show and Bill are getting lambasted on Oprah’s Message Boards.
The RIAA looks like it may have finally been handed their first real setback in their attempts to sue the world and use the courts to try and intimidate people. The judge in the case awarded the defendent the cost of her Attorneys, and the RIAA now has the nerve to appeal it because, “the fees are more than what we would had made it we had actually won the case.” Well bravo for realizing what makes so many people (and companies) cower and settle with you rather than go to court.
I don’t care who you are, Republican, Democrat or Independant. If anybody actually thiks Neal Boortz has something intelligent to say after his little tirade claiming Teachers Unions are more dangerous to this country than nuclear-armed terrorists, then you really need your head examined. This one is not a debateable point. There is not “other side” to this. The man is just nuts. Although, I suspect this is only the first salvo as things heat up, as the White House attempts to get the No Child Left Behind Act reauthorized.
And finally, the quote of the day from Sister Judith, the director of the department that runs the Vaticans website and was interviewed recently by Robert Scoble,
“We don’t know what OS God uses, but we use Linux.” Â Â
