    “The Lost Road and the Towers of Doom”

    This one was spooky, and while reading it I kept recalling Andre Norton’s little post-apocalyptic novel Daybreak – 2250. Not a comfortable feeling at all.

    “The Rush Limbaugh advertiser backlash is knocking down the radio networks”

    I hope those radio networks get exactly what they deserve for all the years they’ve coddled the creep. But bad as he is, I swear that crazy woman Dana Perino is worse. I can listen to Limpy for as long as a minute, but after twenty seconds of her I’m fumbling for the radio controls.

    “The Oracle speaks: Alan Greenspan….”

    “Asshole” is really too kind a word to describe Alan Greenspan.

    Re: Anonymous Saved The Election
    I agree it is incredibly disturbing, but given the shenanigans in 2008 and 2004, and the lack of a judicial response to widespread electoral fraud, maybe we should be grateful for any oversight; extralegal or not. I could see myself applauding remedial actions taken to address foreclosure fraud, for instance, or debt collection fraud.
    It is a sad fact that the state has no interest in investigating crimes against the many when committed by the powerful, and we should consider ourselves lucky when someone, anyone, has the guts and the expertise to bugger up the works.
