I feel old

Flipping through random journals tells me that. People born in 1986 in college. Ack. I remember shit from 1986, yo, some of it pretty well (i.e. Challenger, Bears winning Super Bowl, moving to Europe).
And, I’m bored. So I took the following…..

I am 35% Asshole/Bitch.
Part Time Asshole/Bitch.

I may think I am an asshole or a bitch, but the truth is I am a good person at heart. Yeah sure, I can have a mean streak in me, but most of the people I meet like me.

Yea, right.

John Leo, a guy I don’t often like has an interesting column today, which kind of harkens back to what I wrote the other day here (It didn’t get posted to LJ, because LJ was down at the time).
Fascinating, and disgustingly true. Yes, there are some complete idiots on the right (google for “Paul Revere Society”), granted. But engaging in an argument with the left these days is an excercise in futility for the most part. Something about “politics of personal destruction.” Well, maybe not quite. But namecalling and ridicule is par-for-the-course…..Al Gore’s extra chromosome remark comes immediately to mind. And yes, I know what an extra chromosome causes, Al.

Air America, Again

I went over and actually took a look at WLIB’s overall numbers from Arbitron. In the book prior to Air America’s arrival, WLIB-AM scored a 1.1, and 1.2. Spring and Summer, they scored a 1.3. Now they’re back to a 1.2.
I have to say, in light of these amazing results, that Air America is a wonderful success. They’ve taken a station that broadcast its programming in three different languages, and managed not to change the ratings at all, whatsoever.
“Yeah, but we’re number 3 from 18-34!”
Nobody cares. 🙂 Certainly not advertisers.
Just for kicks, I tuned in last night, and it’s just as bad as it was the first week on the air. The production quality still sucks — even pub^H^H^Hstate radio sounds better. Janeane Garafalo has two arguments:
1. Republicans are stupid.
2. Republicans can’t understand complex concepts.
She was interviewing a guy who’d written a book about the evolution versus creation debate. Yes, “intelligent design” is pure bullshit. No, the earth isn’t 6000 years old. The people who believe that happen to be very vocal. But they’re also the minority. More progressive Christians accept evolution as valid science. Roman Catholics accept evolution. When the catholics get behind something, finally, it’s probably really tough to question its legitimacy. I hear they’re working on getting rid of the every-sperm-is-sacred thing. It’d be a start.
You’re not going to be purged as a right-winger if you believe evolution should be taught in schools, or that creationism (intelligent design, or whatever euphamism they’re using today) shouldn’t be taught. But the groupthink mentality of the left, where there’s a set of core values from which you may not deviate (pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-affirmative action, anti-federalist, pro-class-warfare), doesn’t exist on the right…..even if Janeane thinks it does. But I guess that’s a complex concept she hasn’t mastered yet.
Will cross-post to LJ laaaater, because LJ is fux0r3d.


Well, it appears I can do damn near everything I need to do on the NeXT.
It’s pretty cool, actually, seeing just how useful NeXTStep is, after all this time. I do need to put together one good machine to work on, and perhaps get a copy of OpenStep 4.2 to install.
But, god I love this keyboard. I really need to find something this good for my other jank.
