Facebook is ready to steer legislation with its fresh cadre of former politicians and its large lobby office in DC. Why do we let large corporations have such an unfair influence on politics?

I resolve to ignore America's weapons of mass ignorance and to marginalize their infamous radical ignoramists, whether they be broadcasters or politicians.

How's this been working out for you so far? Stress level still not down as far as you might like?  (They keep building better idiots?) Watch out for the indirect effect ... paying attention to someone who hasn't been quite so diligent. [Perhaps someone like ... myself?]

This is already shaping up to be a good year. I already have 50 dives set up. Now I need to fill the other 49 weeks with more dives.

The claims of millions of cell phones having root-kits seems a little over-blown. There is a privacy concern, but this does not mean your phone has been taken over by hackers. It's your carrier's doing. http://mobilesyrup.com/2011/12/01/rogers-and-telus-confirm-that-carrier-iq-is-not-present-on-their-devices/
