"Man oh man, 'Dr. Menlo.' Now there's an alternative blog. Kindness to animals, Seattle anarchists, nudism galore, SubGenius, anti-Bush black propaganda, jeez louise, Doc, that thing sure is happenin'." --Bruce Sterling, Schism Matrix

"Ye fucking gods!! Are you nuts!? Those Jesuit bastards will eat you alive!" --Hunter S. Thompson, to me, circa '93
OK folks. We now have what everyone keeps saying no one can come up with. We now have evidence that certainly looks like altering a computerized voting system during a real election, and it happened just six weeks ago. [more]
Are you KIDDING ME?! King County is MY COUNTY! I'm gonna be VOTING ON A FUCKING DIEBOLD MACHINE???
He beat a shortlist that included the nefarious Doctor Octopus, played by Alfred Molina, in "Spider-Man 2"; "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'"s cannibalistic Leatherface; Andy Serkis' creepy Gollum from "Lord of the Rings" trilogy; and Elle Driver, the eyepatch-wearing assassin played by Daryl Hannah (news) in "Kill Bill."

. . . so one day we'll be able to upload our brains onto a (the) net, after all, eh? True immortality is only a . . . ?
Cyber-entities waiting for the body technology to catch up and give them one will have time to kill among the precious bits--imagine how people like Socrates and Timothy Leary would have to hide. "Canvas every info crevice, mountain and molehill!" the Rove-esque present and future monster shouts. "Don't let those cocksuckers be regenerated!" A revolutionary outpost somewhere steals or creates the body tech and presents the open vessels to an underground line: "Calling all seers, subversives and create-o-bots . . . your new body awaits." Let's hope it's not a trap . . . either way, make backups, eh?

Biggest Bush lie that comes first to my mind tonight: "The airís cleaner since Iíve been the president . . . "
But didn't the President of Sierra Club go on Bill Moyers within the last year and tell us all that for the first time in thirty years, under this administration, our air and water have gotten dirtier? Bush is lying; Bush is walking around like he's doing an infomercial: pumped up and yelling. He's repeating the same old phrases over and over again.
Let's listen in on the journalists, eh? "The President really did better than last time! . . . The President didn't make any major gaffes! He was strong and forceful!"
Blinking like you just got sprayed in the eye with pepper water is strong and forceful? Yelling over your moderator when you just have to say something in fury is not a major gaffe? Talking about "rumors on the internets"? Bald-faced lying about the cleanliness of air in America makes you a fucking winner?
