P, you may be in for a wait with those Sunday morning talk shows:

http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/09/palin-media-a-2.html

"Sarah Palin won't subject herself to any tough questions from reporters 'until the point in time when she'll be treated with respect and deference.'"

Oh, oh!  I should have reported: she is apparently sitting for interviews with Charlie Gibson this week, to air Friday or Saturday.  Given his abysmal performance at the Democratic primary debate last spring, I expect he will be very "deferential."  Crikey these people are manipulative and infuriating (a la jeffislouie).

Blondie in the Heart of Glass video kind of makes me want to chop my hair chin-length again but dye it really excessively blonde, too.

I think this would be lovely!

Also, OMG my seminar reading is so repetitive and long and I have not gotten to my reading for any of my three classes tomorrow. Boooo!

::high fives::

...

Make that ten, actually.

ETA: Does this sentence strike anyone else as incredibly insipid? "Instead, some complex socially constructed system combining organizational structures, rules and procedure, and technologies must be crafted."

Yes.  Why "must [it] be crafted"?  And what will this presumably achieve? 

I think the worst part about this sentence is not the content, however, but the passive voice.

So this strikes me as depraved:

I could see this taking off.  It's kind of terrifying.

Deference?  Who does she think she is, the Grand Poobah?

aren't we supposed to like Chris Brown? I should preview some tracks.

Quality dancer, the music's pretty boring, IMO.

Can anyone think of a movie where hackers save the world or do something heroic and catch the bad guys using their computers and their big ol' brains alone? There must be lots like that, right?

You mean like . . . Hackers?

Hackers

(that's the title)

Yeah... That's the only one I could think of. I was hoping for something slightly less far-fetched, but was coming up short.

ETA: But thanks!

Actually, as I think about it, it doesn't have to be hackers. I'm just looking for a video clip of people using computers to solve crimes.

You mean like . . . War Games?

Or certain bits of Real GeniusGoldeneye?  Most of the "CSI" canon?

ETA:  Does it have to be something a computer can actually do?

I say throw her to Mike Wallace.

Would that be like the TV news equivalent of "harpooning" or more along the lines of "dolphin safe tuna"?

So Mu I dropped Mobile Me, turns out I can just use Igoogle and google mail/calander to do everything I wanted. I just wanted to be able to check my mail/clander from anouther computer that did not have outlook on it, so I could keep one primary outlook and just check e-mail and stuff from any computer. Gmail and igoogle seems to have solved that and auto checking for e-mail on iphone is free, I not as worried about have to delate mutplile same e-mails as I am not being able to check if something comes in but on my main outlook computer. Does this sound like to you the easeist and free way to do that?

I'd say it's more like the TV news equivalent of "step on your head and pop it like a zit." I haven't seen him pull any punches with people who could start a global nuclear armageddon, so I don't know why anyone in the McCain camp should feel she needs to be handled with kid gloves.



because she has no substance?
