Apparently sombody at TheStreeet.com reported that “in order to get customers from Verizon, Cingular is going to give away 18 months of service free if you purchase an iPhone.”Â Of course I didn’t have to look too hard to find somebody who already debunked the story.Â I mean it certainly would get them some customers… but that wouldn’t mean much when they started hemoragging red ink from that sort of promotion.
I have avoided writing about the State of the Union address.Â Now it seems I don’t have to, because Rude Cactus, has the perfect description of my feelings (right down to the what I “didn’t say”), except going a bit light on the whole No Child Left Behind debacle, which is a post for another day.
I will however say though, if Dick Cheney really believes that the notion of failures and blunders in Iraq is “hogwash”, we really need to consider whether the man is still competent to hold public office.Â
How does a parent, on trial for murder attempt to blame is 12 year old daughter?Â First he says he covered it up to protect her, but now on the stand decides to “tell the truth?”Â Am I the only one not buying this story?
Who are these people that believe that taking things back to the stones ages is a good idea?Â We have worked for years to get past the stereotypes that made people think that boys and girls learn at different speeds and need to be segregated.Â But apparently the cavemen are not just back in Geico Commercials, but are trying to run the school systems as well and have brought back this stoneage idea.
Of course I am guess I shouldn’t be surprised.Â I mean, people are clearly still shaken by having a woman speaker of the house.Â Just look at Mike Barnacle, who starts out blogging for MSNBC on the night of the SOTU, with how much (he thinks) Nancy Pelosi’s outfit costs.Â
So how sad is it, that in Janurary, the fact that it is cold here inÂ NY/NJ metro areaÂ is NEWS?
I’ll be spending my time trying to find ways to stay warm.Â What have you got planned?
