My dog hates OSX: "What we need is a killer application which returns us to the good old days of the occasional system crash, spinning cursor of doom, or the half-hour recompile."

I kept stalling out on posting this story because I was trying to think of something nifty to say about it. Everything I think of remids me of my late dog, Maggie, though, so I'll just let you read it and draw your own conclusions.  9:03:58 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

KOTV Channel 6, The Spirit of Oklahoma: "According to an Oklahoma City police report, the unidentified man walked into Ace Cash Express on the northwest side Tuesday afternoon and showed a clerk a bill with $1,000,000 printed on it. It looked like legal tender, the police report stated. "

Should I be more worried about the guy who tried to pass of the million dollar bill, or the cop who thought it looked real?  7:02:27 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Rotten pecans start fire that destroys Missouri home: "The $210,000 house was wiped out last Sunday by a fire that investigators think was started by spontaneous combustion in a pail of pecans in the garage. "

In case you didn't have enough to worry about.  7:01:31 PM  permalink   Add a comment   

Bob Edwards. "Now I know what a statesman is; he's a dead politician. We need more statesmen." [Quotes of the Day]

Speaking of which: Legislators say code of ethics too strong

"...Another [bill] would make it a crime, punishable by up to a year in jail, for citizens to reveal they have filed an ethics complaint against a legislator."
