uh oh! The Braintrust (British Son of The Onion): Anthrax found in email attachment "It seems that Middle Eastern warmongers have succeeded in creating a strain of anthrax which can be sent as an email attachment."
The Times of India has several stories of interest right now:
- Omar may be living in the back of a car (never more than 4 hours in one place)
- The Village Where Nothing Happened
The Independent newspaper's Richard Lloyd Parry travelled to the destroyed village, which he caustically described as "the village where nothing happened".
This was in a reference to the Pentagon's tough-talking rejection at the weekend of reports that innocent civilians at Kama Ado village had been killed en masse. In response to questions, the Pentagon had said, "it just didn't happen...nothing happened".
But Parry said he travelled at great risk to himself along the road out of the city of Jalalabad to Kama Ado, where the houses were now just "deep conical craters. He said he unearthed "a small fragment of 'nothing'... the tail-end of a compact bomb. It bore the words, Surface Attack Guided Missile AGM 114, and a serial number: 232687", he said.<
He added in a tone of angry incredulity that "till nothing happened, it was a large village with a small graveyard, but now that has been reversed. The cemetery on the hill contains 40 freshly dug graves, unmarked and identical. And the village of Kama Ado has ceased to exist".

I usually don't step into this one too much.... The tragedy of open source. Migration path from Zope (open source) to Frontier/Manila. And corporate IT department policies.
are you an e-bore? I'm just about average, which is "You're displaying early symptoms of e-bore Syndrome, though it's not too late. Just watch what you're wearing." Some questions don't apply (I have no TV, and by now all my grandparents have died). [via dangerousmeta]

Elephants and Full Moons
The new outdoor mall (oh, 'scuse me, it's an 'Entertainment Complex') at Hollywood and Highland (where there's yet another loud clattery California Pizza Kitchen, a Starbucks, the Kodak Theatre (home of the future Academy Awards), and a hotel....captured by a photographer with a snarky attitude, waiting for the right moment to capture the full moon peeking from behind the clouds.
Just another Wintry Sunset and oh, yesterday's was rather spectacular. Here are two views of the clouds to the west....
