media.org is an interesting and perplexing site. Definitely worth browsing.
The site includes an intersting article on intellectual property theft.
I recommend reading “First in a Series of Sex Stories That Lose Their Way.” Do not be intimidated by the long title, as the story itself is not particularily long. Also do not be intimidated by the fact that the story contains sex. Unless you are my grandmother, you will not be offended. If you are my grandmother, I promise to write soon. Sorry.
Isn't it odd how some Canadians get more involved and excited in the American elections than they do in their own? Some sort of political penis envy, no doubt.
Speaking of Americans and phallic imagery, check out www.ProtectAmericansNow.com. Propagandist ads and a zipcode specific report of how vulnerable you may be to missile attack: interactive and fun!

Let in be known that I too have feelings. Why, just this evenings I almost cried watching the standing ovation received by the now retired Wendel Clark. There were tears in my eyes. Honest. Swear to God.
See, I can admit to an actual emotion without being ironic or sarcastic.
Let's see if the justice system works.
Read the title a couple more times. You are so jealous. In related news, Radiohead will be appearing in Canada. I will not tell you where or when, or how to get tickets, until I have tickets safetly within my greedy little fingers.
While in Maine, I was encouraged to see home-made Vote Nader signs among the glossy Gore/Lieberman/Bush/Cheney signs.
Gore/Lieberman bumper stickers seemed to be the choice of discerning Cadillac drivers throughout the state.
