I emailed the programmers and they "are aware of the issue and are working on a solution . . . maybe next week". The mobile version of Wonkette is no longer around and my Blackberry shows a version I would have to remove my contacts to read, even at maximum magnification.

Maybe when we fall off/run into the fiscal cliff these and other issues will be resolved.

I'm not aware of the state's demographics but I thought most of the conservatives lived in the upper peninsula (Yoopers?). Has there been a turn to the right or is talk radio and fear blanketing the state?

Okay, I'll open myself up to some abuse here -- I liked Rush.

Polyrythmic, bass-led, reasonably tuneful. What's not to like? I ignored the lyrics, because they were unintelligible. It's only in later years that I've learned that they were apparently loons.

Fuck it. I liked System of a Down, too.

I hate to get into a syntax argument, Weedlord, but it's "wailing on". Or at least it has been since I was in elementary school in whateveritwas BC.

You'd think a 'free bread and circuses' act would be part of the trend but that would obviously cost money that the job creators would be unwilling to part with.

i would like to think that the grossness of the MI legislature will be a salutary lesson for the middle class white folk who voted for republicans b/c they believe republican bullshit and, you know, kenyan in the white house.

but it probably won't.

Look up the massacre of strriking miners in Ludlow, Colorado. Or the police shooting of them on the San Francisco waterfront in the 1930's. The set-up of Joe Hill. Or...sorry, it's a long and sad roster once you get started.
