Tweet As my Mom says, racism is alive and well. I’m not going to post here the image used to greet Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, as you can see the story with a click here. But I will state that the Palestinian media does that country’s efforts at building World support a lot of damage with this kind of crap, proving once again just how stupid and animalistic people can be. Think about it. Isn’t the smart move by Palestinians to curry favor from other minorities Worldwide? Pretty dumb for them...

Tweet Look. You know and I know this is fake — but it’s hella funny. If you were a reporter who was doing a story on exploding manhole covers, would you stop and stand on top of one to give your report? Of course not. And if you did, the camera person should have stopped you. So that’s two checks against that action. Still, it’s funny to watch. She just goes right into the air. ...

Tweet The one glaring problem was my Mountain Mike’s Pizza friend Robert Gallery getting beat on the Raiders’ second series for a sack. Offensive Coordinator Tom Walsh can help him by installing three-step drop passes.

Tweet Masood Mortazavi says this: …Apparently, Jon had the good fortune of attending Peter Hirshberg’s birthday party during which Peter showed off some of the new cool things about Technorati, but what grabbed my attention was Peter’s discussion of the way Technorati is constraining its tag system. For some reason, I never read about these constraints anywhere else when I first started using the tags. Here’s a quote from Jon’s article: Lest omnivorous bloggers try to game the system and claim they...

Tweet The Wall Street Jounal, looking to get a lot of links, asked John Jurgensen to pen an article pointing to the “Moguls of New Media.” Give me a break. Hey, I’m glad they gave Amanda Congdon some more exposure– too much is not enough in this case — but John forgets her ex-partner Andrew Baron. Big mistake. But it underscores what a joke of an article this is. The definitions of Mogul are: -a bump on a ski slope-a member of the Muslim dynasty that ruled India until 1857-baron: a very...
