A Farewell To Canopies

Okay, this is the last of the canopy shots, I promise. Although I still reserve the right to post pictures of netting…




Not canopy.

Quick Surge Comment

The Bush administration handles troop deployment the same way it handles the federal budget.

Spocko Is Dead, Long Live And Prosper Spocko!

I really can’t add much of anything to El Gato Negro and spocko’s background and action plan info at Online Blogintegrity. Suffice it to say that spocko has been on a righteous and sometimes successful crusade to make advertisers aware of the truly vile things their sociopathic wingnut sponsorees (primarily Melanie Morgan, Lee Rogers, and Brian Sussman) have been saying on KSFO radio.

Worse yet, KSFO is a subsidiary of Disney, which means that:

A) They bask in Disney’s family-friendly aura, which makes companies feel safe advertising with them, because Hey, it’s Disney, so it’s not like they’re going to say anything sadistic, racist, or violent, right?

B) They have virtually unlimited resources to crush wee bloggers and private citizens like spocko, and have been trying to do just that, which is why spocko’s blog has been offline for a while: They sent his chickenshit hosting company, 1&1 Internet, a groundless cease-and-desist letter for supposedly hosting copyrighted content (the audio clips in my second link, which fall very comfortably under the provisions for fair use). 1&1 gave spocko 24 hours to remove the content, he complied, and then they pulled his plug anyway. Lovely.

Fortunately, spocko has been getting some help from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), and has found a new host for his blog, so he should be back online soon. And as a result of Disney’s bigfoot tactics, this has metastasized from being Spocko’s Lonely Crusade to being a lefty blogosphere cause celebre. Smooth move, Ex-Lax.

So, to sum up: Yay spocko! Yay lefty blogosphere! Fuck KSFO! Fuck Disney! Fuck 1&1!

Oh, and a pre-emptive fuck-you to KSFO/Disney professional troll “blogicalthought.” I don’t typically delete troll comments, but I’ll delete yours – if your masters don’t want to let spocko have his say, I don’t see why I should let you have yours. And before you start blathering about how he’s trying to suppress KSFO’s “freedom of speech,” I’ll just point out that there’s a big difference between informing advertisers of what they’re paying for, vs. actually silencing someone through legal action and plug-pulling. So bite me.

Merry Christmas, Army Style

Well, this is just lovely…

The Army said yesterday it would apologize to the families of about 275 officers killed or wounded in action who were mistakenly sent letters urging them to return to active duty.

The letters were sent a few days after Christmas to more than 5,100 Army officers who had recently left the service. Included were letters to about 75 officers killed in action and about 200 wounded in action. The 75 represent more than one-third of all Army officers who have died in Iraq since the war began.

“Army personnel officials are contacting those officers’ families now to personally apologize for erroneously sending the letters,” the Army said.

I suppose it was inevitable that they would get desperate enough to start recalling dead people, especially now that we’re on the verge of a surge.
