Some Sunday morning reading to share.
The Democrats prove once again that they won't win the 2008 election by attempting to shake up the primary calendar. I have nothing against changing the calendar per se, but it is the way they are doing it that just seems, well, transparently stupid. The Democrats don't have an exclusive franchise on stupidity. Can you say macaca?
We are a Nation of Laws. How many times have you heard that myth propounded? Well this week the myth was laid as nakedly bare as that artist who thinks sitting naked with a pig is art. After a liberal judge said NSA wiretapping was unconstitutional, and the Prez says we will appeal, now we go to a conservative court for that appeal. Yes, we are a nation of laws, when the laws agree with us. The naked artist with a pig is no less disgusting, but at least more honest.
And speaking of naked, look for this mash up of reality TV and poker to hit the airwaves soon. Poker players gamble it all in a Strip Poker contest. It's happening in London now, but that means it is only season or so from coming to American reality TV.
Jeff Jarvis rearranges a little Shakespeare to the same result in First thing we do, let's kill all the critics.
Consumer Reports is creating viruses for testing anti-virus software? Yeah, that's smart.
Wish I was there. And no, not the TechCrunch party. Dropping Knowledge sounds like a fascinating event. 112 artists, scientists, philosophers and others will gather in Bebelplatz Square in Berlin (site of Nazi book burnings) to answer questions in a Global Town Hall. They've constructed a Table of Free Voices that is 357 feet in diameter. Mostly liberal, but hey, I bet some fascinating stuff (good and bad) will be discussed. Wonder who'll be blogging the event? I'm available.
No lighters needed. Traveling to a concert by plane? Worried about losing your lighter to the TSA and not being able to salute your favorite musical moments? Check out the iScorch for you iPod. Of course if iPods get banned...
