Contra Costa Times: Goodwin's gamble leaves Giants with no chance for rally. "Let's give Tom Goodwin credit for being honest. In hindsight, he said it wasn't such a wise move trying to advance to third with the Giants trailing 1-0 and Barry Bonds ready to step to the plate for some potential ninth-inning magic... 'That's probably the first time I've ever tried that play,' said Goodwin, who walked against Byung-Hyun Kim and stole second before David Bell grounded to third baseman Craig Counsell to put the [double-]play in motion. 'With Barry on deck I don't know what I'm thinking.'"

We'll have to see what the Giants can pull off against the very hot Colorado Rockies tonight.

Brent Simmons: "Why did we send Rumsfeld instead of Powell to Pakistan and India?... It's like sending Worf instead of Picard."

Scripting News: "The RadioPoint Tool turns the outliner into a presentation authoring program... As weblogs are showing up at conferences, it makes sense to integrate presentation software into the weblog software. Create your slides before-hand, link the presentation to your weblog so people can get a preview. No need to bring a laptop, just find a Web browser on stage, click on the link, and start talking."

NYT: Bush's Decision on Oil Angers Californians.
In Washington on Wednesday, President Bush sat next to his brother Jeb Bush, the governor of Florida, and vowed to spend $235 million to buy a number of highly unpopular oil leases in a state where his brother is running for re-election and that handed him the presidency in 2000 by the slimmest of margins.

Jeb Bush acknowledged that he would probably gain politically from the plan. But he and the president insisted that it was also sound policy because the move would protect beaches and wetlands.

Protecting wetlands makes a convenient excuse for handing out political favor, but it doesn't add up in my book. I smell a rat. (A rat who looks an awful lot like Alfred E. Newman.)
