Bought and paid for

forwarded without comment: SUPREME COURT The Supreme Court has tossed out a lawsuit that accused two oil companies of inflating gasoline prices by at least a (b) billion dollars. Justices unanimously ruled gas distributors didn’t prove ChevronTexaco and Shell violated antitrust laws. The joint venture started in 1998 and ended four years ago. In the […]

Is it redneck in here? Or is it just me?

Between the incessant nattering about cars and engines and pictures of my bird dogs comes e p o n y m o u s’ condemnation of canned hunting and defense of regular old huntin’ and fishin’. On a more personal note I’d like to add that while I’ve never hunted, I did grow up fishing […]

Dodge Day Afternoon

Here is the text of a post I made on the Mopar web board I use. I mentioned (I think) half of my regular readers in it… so I thought I would bring it here so you guys could see your names in lights… [snip] The Sludge Strikes Back: Several people on the Mopar web […]

Annoy the NSA

I don’t know how familiar you might be with PGP. A brief history can be found here. Essentially, PGP is bulletproof encryption for your web communications. It’s .gov strength message security for everyday folks. There was a big stink back in 1997 or so, when the NSA lobbied congress to ban it, and back then […]

But there’s a least a grim chuckle in the Nation’s recap of “David Horowitz’s Restoration Weekend, a traditional gathering of the right-wing tribes” by Marc Cooper: But here’s the serious part: there’s a lot of fear and trembling going […]

I can answer this one, professor Black!!

Atrios sez: Still, when/if the time comes it’ll be incumbent on journalists figure out how to respond to such actions by the Bush administration.
