We've lost another member of the B5 security team. Coincidence, or Vorlon conspiracy?
Actor Jerry Doyle, best known for his role in the sci-fi series Babylon 5, has died at the age of 60.

Looks like American Express is beginning to realize what they've done to themselves by blowing their Costco partnership. They're starting to seriously hawk their referral program. I wonder if the falloff in usage is actually dramatic enough to have already been the cause of this email I just received.

Written elseweb, and I felt like it deserved preservation on its own:

I contend that there is a paradoxically narrow and hazy line between a being that will probably eventually become an aware, reasoning human being, deserving of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, and one that already is. I further contend that any person prepared to say they know where to draw that line has too high an opinion of themselves.

Gonna be really happy when +Google+​ solves this new mention-spam situation.

Found these new at Costco. Based on nutritional information, ingredients, and ultimately, taste and consistency, I'm pretty confident they're either manufactured by +Quest Nutrition or use their recipes and processes. This is awesome, as it gives me a high-quality, inexpensive supplement to their branded line.

I love Quest's protein bars because they're low, not just in sugar, but in sugar alcohols, and they don't use that god-awful sugar-free "chocolate" crap. Even their chocolate peanut butter bars, pretty much the staple of low-carb meal replacement bars, are pretty good.

In a brazenly optimistic attempt to see the good in something that annoys the hell out of me, I will note with interest that "bae" is coming into common usage as a completely gender-neutral pronoun. That may actually be enough for me to, if not actually use it, at least be encouraged by it.

Resist, I hate that word just as much as tots or any other millennial shortened word.

OK, this one has come up again, and it still pisses me off. These artists have a simple way to prevent politicians from using their music, but they don't have the guts to actually do it: leave ASCAP. As soon as they agree to take ASCAP's money, they've lost all right to ask that their music not be used in ASCAP-licensed venues (and the allegation in this particular song that these uses are unlicensed is just false).

So, simple solution. Handle all your own licensing, instead of following the crowd and taking the scattergun-easy money. Otherwise, your music will end up everywhere, used by people you don't like.

And #JohnOliver? If you're pretending to be a journalist, at least pretend to be one. A satirical take on the news is great, but a little fact-checking would be cool, too.

When I start to look past the histrionics of the article, this is what I see:

1) Dude's got a small-ish collection of Nazi paraphernalia, which may or may not indicate an unhealthy obsession with them. Note that the flags have pretty solid creases, so it seems likely all the small stuff was packed in that green crate, and the police spread it all out to look like a shrine.

2) A small selection of WWII-era rifles, probably to go with the Nazi gear. Interesting, hardly scary.

3) A pistol and a shotgun. Probably illegal under New York law, and mostly legal in the rest of the US. Very basic self-defense fare.

4) Unless those "assault rifles" are actual, selective fire assault rifles, I'm sure they are illegal in New York, and again, legal in most of the rest of the US. I'm sure I know plenty of people with a more impressive collection.

5) Almost no ammunition. The police love to spread out all the varied ammunition in these staged shots. I see one small plastic bin of what looks like a handful of ancient loose cartridges.

6) "Bomb-making instructions". Yeah, and I've got a copy of The Anarchists's Cookbook that I bought because I was a damned curious teenager. Note there were no bomb-making materials.

7) Some pot and 'shrooms. If anything tells me this guy wasn't much of a threat, it's that. Nobody get stoned then goes out to blow away the Jews.

So the whole "We prevented another Orlando" schtick is almost certainly total bullshit, and they've arrested some dude with a barely-interesting and marginally-illegal-in-the-gun-hating-Big-Apple gun collection and a minor obsession with a WWII whack-job. I'd love to know what the actual warrant was for.
Edward Perkowski, 29, was arrested on weapons and drug charges after the police discovered assault rifles, $40,000 in cash, Nazi paraphernalia and marijuana.

This is starting sound more like a fan of Wolfenstein. Bet he have some Jedi/Sith gear left out of the picture to.

Interesting to see that this is consistent with the Oklahoma State survey last year, in that 80% of people surveyed still favor mandatory labeling of foods containing DNA.

Actually, Jackson's own record diminishes him just fine. Good riddance.

Room was adequate, typical for a budget motel. Internet was solid, but slow. My biggest complaint was that there was a single ice machine for the entire massive complex. Overall, I'd say it was ok, but not worth the price premium over other budget motels.
