I suppose Portland lived up to to the "Little Beirut" crack over the last couple days. That was an impressive stunt by Greenpeace. Couldn't be outdone by Seattle.

China's huge radio telescope will have a 500-meter reflector:
Construction is well underway on what will become the world’s largest radio telescope. Once complete, the half-kilometer-wide dish will explore the origins of the Universe and scour the skies for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence.

I don't reckon I can come up with a good reason to disagree with this here redneck:

Ooh--when talking about organic "sprouts", I thought for sure you'd bring up the contaminated (er, unclean) organic sprouts that killed all those people. And maybe contrast that with the complete lack of so much as a sneeze from GMOs. 

That said, I don't see it as a "dirt" aversion so much. I think it's yearning for simpler stuff that they can understand. So many people don't understand the benefits of tech for farmers because so few people farm now. I think people have a sepia-toned image of the past, despite the fact that hunger, famine, and food poisoning due to lack of storage technology used to really problematic. In this way I think it's a lot like the vaccine situation. Our success at solving a lot of these things makes people think the past was better. It wasn't.

"Organic" is a marketing term. An oft used, easily abused marketing term.

This example is perhaps the clearest way to show people how easy it is for any group of people--conservative or liberal--to fall for such nonsense, when they're absolutely convinced they are 'doing the right thing', or that 'they are on the right side'.

Of course, convincing anyone they've been duped is harder than simply duping them. 

>_<

Blurgh.

Regarding the stealth bomber contract, I'm sure they have lobbyists -- still not sure what the ad campaign does.

Official -- heading back to New Orleans for a week in December. Nice 2-bedroom apartment in the Quarter for $650 (won't be in that zoo the whole time, but it's a central location).

Got to get to +Cochon Butcher  in the warehouse district for Le Pig Mac:

Insisted on an ACH bank transfer for the deposit -- not so crazy, but a bit old-fashioned. Now I'm hearing that the transfer was "reversed," and I have no indication that that's the case. I'm hoping these people are just old and confused, and that this transaction isn't fishy. ... will know more soon.

I don't understand the positive reviews. Some people are easily amused apparently. The sandwiches are mediocre at best -- especially considering the other options in the neighborhood.
