All the news that fits..

The Cali legislature today became the first in the country to legalize same-sex marriage, with the State Assembly narrowly approving a bill that defines marriage as between "two persons" instead of between a man and a woman. Massachusetts has allowed same sex marriage but only due to court rulings. Link to NY Times article is here.

Jack Kerouac was a real trip according to the Navy. He was unceremoniously discharged after 10,count em 10 days of active service..the link to the Smoking Gun article is here.

The Prez has promised to find a whipping boy for all the fuck-ups by the federal government after Katrina hit. He is sending...get this..Dick "Halliburton" Cheney to the gulf area to "cut through any bureaucratic obstacles slowing recovery efforts". Isn't that like putting the fox in charge of the hen house in a roundabout sort of way? The link to the latest bullshit spewing out of the White House and who is pointing a finger at whom now that congress is back from vacation, courtesy of the NY Times, is here.

And MY personal fave...a juicy little tell-all tale about Microsoft and its head nerd Billy Bob Gates. Seems Billy is fond of four letter words(who isn't?) and temper tantrums which drove one of his chief minions over to Google. Microsoft sued his ass and he counter sued. Its rich and I will follow this trial to its conclusion. The link to the newest wrinkle in this trial can be found here.

My thoughts exactly.
Although the thought of old Dickie as a whipping boy does bring a little smile to my face.

Well, I'll have to take Google's side in this, considering Microsoft never invented anything and want to convince the world they invented everything. Pretty soon, you'll hear them say they invented the internet. Might get Al Gore mad though.
