I am now one of the pod people

Yeah, I got one for Christmas. I am now the proud owner of a 60 gb video iPod. My wife, my father and my step-mom went thirds on it. I must have been very good this year. After watching me run around buying an auto power adapter, cassette adapter, protective case and slightly nicer headphones, […]

More like Nixon Every Day

So… just foreign telephone intercepts, y’say? Just bombers of weddings and commuter trains? Despite all the news accounts and punditry since the New York Times published its Dec. 16 bombshell about the National Security Agency’s domestic spying, the media coverage has made virtually no mention of the fact that the Bush administration used the NSA […]

Contract workers fucking it up for everyone

Two big stories in the news this week where contract workers were used in place of Union workers and/or career employees, and promptly fucked things up royally. First, we have the explosive decompression of an airplane, and the terrifying flight back to the airport while the passengers wore those drop-down plastic masks. Sweating, praying and […]

Dear Peter B, pt. 2

One more thing before I jump in the car. You may remember I heaved a brickbat at a Windows flunkie named Peter B a few weeks ago. I wonder if he saw this headline at CNN: Apple juggernaut shows no sign of waning You thought Mac users were smug before…. I, for one, welcome our […]

A Festive Pressure’s Off-mas to you all!

Hope everyone is enjoying Pressure’s Off-mas. Somehow our P.O. holiday has been postponed in favor of ten hours of driving today. Watching this space for the usual content will probably not avail you of much of interest today. Huzzahs to the gang at The Alternate Brain for blogging at their usual pace despite the pressing […]

Hey, Happy Christmas, everyone.

Mrs. Dog and I are dashing around seeing family and old friends here on Christmas Eve, so you probably won’t hear from me again until Pressure’s Off-mas starts on the 26th. Here’s hoping everyone has safe travels and good cheer for the holidays. Best, -patrick

Hey Mister…

Fucking Ted Stevens…. this guy would pimp his sister to Big Oil for a little piece of the action. He’s been trying to get some sort of three way going between the federal government, Exxon and ANWR for what, now, twelve years? Well, with all due respect: fuck you, Senator. Again.

Slouching towards Washington

The monster that is Jack Abramoff’s knife in Tom DeLay’s back is coming up the stairs to Little Tommy’s bedroom. Pull the covers up tight, Little Tommy! He’s gonna getcha!! At the same time, prosecutors in Washington have been sifting through evidence of what they believe is a corruption scheme involving at least a dozen […]

The emerging threat

The NYPD apparently feel like there’s a connection between protesting bike messengers and the rise of militant islam. Or something. It’s apparently important enough to infiltrate their organization, then stage a mock arrest (!?) of one of their agents provocateurs to get everyone stirred up. Beyond collecting information, some of the undercover officers or their […]

Credit Where Credit is Due

It seems that in his short blogging career, my dearest Twin Brother has created an internet phenomenon, referred to as “Trexxing.” The term is based on his nomme de guerrre, TRex, and it seems to have caught on over at firedoglake and it works like this- If you have a weblog and you are having […]
