the high state of the law

Saw an ad in the subway for the
Fitzgerald & Fitzgerald law firm. The ad was telling people if their kid is autistic or retarded there might be someone that can be sued for it. Okay, we live in a litigious society and lawyers advertise in subways for clients, and that's how the world is. But in the ad, the company was offering a free cap with their logo (a leprechaun with boxing gloves) to anyone who came in for a consultation. That is just so fundamentally wrong that I am not even going to bother eplaining why that is so fundamentally wrong.

You need this

The ever resourceful Google has created a way to search your PC for information. It indexes everything on your computer, so it searches way faster than the Windows search. This is great for me. It searches files, documents, email, and other stuff I turned off because I don't want it. Finding email in Outlook is very difficult, you have to figure out which folders to search and I always first just search the subject because it takes forever to search the entirety of each email (I keep most of my email so there's an awful lot). I can find anything right away now. It could use a few more features, but it's still in beta and I imagine more will be coming. But what's there is fantastic, a necessity for anyone who can't keep track of their files, documents and email. Trust me.

Be Afraid. Be Very Afraid

Is there such a thing as a well-informed, rational Bush supporter? I'm thinking no.

Can you read the New York Times and still support Bush? Here's some information on how his minions are working to keep Democrats from voting. Take that, Democracy.
The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Columnist: Block the Vote

Here's something to read if you want to really be scared by our future with Bush.
The New York Times > Magazine > In the Magazine: Without a Doubt

Frank Rich, my favorite Times columnist (outside of myself), basically says, you thought Nixon was bad, you ain't seen nothing yet.
The New York Times > Arts > Frank Rich: Will We Need a New 'All the President's Men'?

If you'd like to see something I didn't read in the Times, here's something for those who consider it hyperbole to say the Bush administration is heading to fascism.
Fascism Anyone?

Read all this and still vote Republican and there is no hope for you as a human being.
