Baltimore resident Julie Baker raised $43K on GoFundMe to make her yard more gay after posting a letter she says she got from a neighbor complaining about her "relentlessly gay" yard decor. Snopes ...

I dunno what the point would be - Snopes exiats, and the next time this happens and you say hey this is just like the last time, the same people are going to say NO IT ISN'T.

Also, I suspect that the kind of people who do shit like this would like being on a site like that. A lot.

"I guess I'm confused... Why weren't anti-trust suits brought against Apple for price fixing iTunes song prices at $0.99?"

Look who was president the whole time. Apple announced they were getting rid of DRM (but only on music) as soon as a Democrat got elected - they at least do a little antitrust work.

They did get busted for the iTunes/iPod monopoly in the EU, but not here, not with Bush in office and not under his DoJ.

Anyway, this article's stupid. Apple just acted like Apple in a new space they don't care much about, and not with a Bush in office. Amazon hasn't gotten in that kind of trouble because they haven't conspired to fix prices/costs like Apple is used to doing when it can get away with in.

The other number that's interesting in the chart is the "Quit looking for a job" number. Those seem to be more like folks that would not work and live the best they can on BI, about 1%. But even they might find productive activities that don't fit into the current definition of "work."

+Jon Munger You made me grin. And alas, on the internet, everything is new for the person who hadn't heard it before, so there can be no difference between doing something this morning and doing it decades ago.

I'm also surprised by the way things get "telephoned" on the internet. Sometimes what actually happened bears little resemblance to the accusation.

Flat tax is bad for the lower classes, they end up paying disproportionately MORE.

I may have to share this for very personal professional reasons...the "person" I used to know who was the most rabid flat tax proponent was also married to a banker.  (Not sure his wife was bald or if she wears a top hat, though.)

There's certainly an eager audience out there for their daily two minutes outrage.

The core problem is that we have police who get away with murder.

A few thoughts about The Phantasmagorical Cross-Cultural Sexual Cogitation Panel
I was just at Fourth Street Fantasy, which was up to its usual high standards.  All of the panels consisted of smart and amusing people, and "The Phantasmagorical Cross-Cultural Sexual Cogitation Panel" was no different, so when I quibble, please note that ...

+Will Shetterly You're not wrong, but Egan seems to take it a bit too far. I've read almost everything he's written and this seems to be a consistent theme.

Just to be clear, I'm not suggesting that it says much of anything about him personally, more that he seems to take this particular conscious approach to sex scenes.

Only because you wanted "liberal" but it was already taken.
