Yesterday, I did what I said I'd do.
Went to Fry's and bought these two DVDs of Doctor Who.
And for dinner, I had a ham sandwich.
Remember a long time ago, when I said that GIPF Project Expansion #3 was due out in January? Well, I never saw it anywhere.
Then one of my gaming buddies pointed me to TimeWellSpent.org.
So I did more shopping and ordered one. Woo hoo!
MoveOn.org ran a full page ad in the New York Times that was a political smear on Gen. David Patraeus.
What's interesting is that, despite NYT needing the revenue, they gave MoveOn.org a discount of $102,000 on that ad. Here's the article.
Expect gas prices to go up - oil has hit $80/barrel for the first time.
But wait - that shouldn't have any effect on gas prices! And neither should declines in gas supplies! Nor the fact that demand is still strong!
Bush controls gas prices! The cost of raw materials - not to mention supply and demand have nothing to do with anything!!
Got an early meeting today at work.
Be seeing you.

Having worked in the biz, the rate card is as inflated as the actual retail price on The Price Is Right, or what is listed on the rate card on the hotel door. You never pay full rate card. So this is a lot of hooey by people who have nothing better to do than to sniff out 'bias' in some organizations and ignore it in others. A NYT sales dude probably thought they could get more sales from Move On if they cut them a deal. It happens ALL of the time. And the ad is nothing like the attacks put upon a true war hero, Max Cleland.

What anyone did to Max Cleland does not, in any way, justify doing the same to David Petraeus. I've heard that argument and I just ain't buying it. BOTH sides were wrong.
