GOTTA RUN . . .

Definitely a "gotta run" morning (though there are some very interesting -- as in "good" -- developments to report on from the work front, which I'll discuss as soon as I can).

Hopefully, things'll free up a bit later today, so I expect to have Part II of the Preview tomorrow, and maybe (but less than 50/50) a very short FSMOMYOTD. We'll see, and I'll do my best.

In the mean time, a couple more choice links to things worth reading to tide you over:

1. DED has a solid little report on Sirius, XM, satellite radio in general, and the efforts of the big media fuckwads including hired gun John Ashcroft, to derail an industry that seems to be doing a good job in that regard on its own. "Huh?" Yeah, I don't know what I mean either. Check out DED's piece.

2. Mort discusses Ron Paul, The Fed, Ben Bernanke, and Cheap Money. I used to post more often on these topics, but it gets me too pissed off. Mort's is worth reading and he remains calm throughout (probably because he's more cynical than I am).

3. Mr. Furious has a comprehensive run-down of all things Gonzo-gate: Gonzalapalooza. Hey, it's his title, not mine.

4. And finally, George mocks our wretched existances, not only by reminding us that he lives in Santa Barbara, but by informing us that he spent three hours last Saturday drinking Belgian Ales . . . and was then driven home by his mother-in-law.

Thanks for bearing with my schedule the last few days. Actual post(s) tomorrow. Truuuuuuuuust me.

Belgian beer fest....I am swooning.

Sounds like one of my versions of heaven (minus the virgins).

I prefer to have someone with some experience as opposed to a virgin. Virgins are too much work.
I don't want a porn star, just someone who has done it a few times.

72 of them? Is your name al-Smitti?

You know, if there's actually a heaven, and part of their retirement plan is a supply of willing women, I'm taking whatever they're giving: virgins, porn-stars, nurses, nuns, sadistic librarians, rugby players.

It's all good.

Solar laser? Dr. Evil's preparation H? We must know.

Now, now Mort. Everyone's equal here in the Nabe.

Uhhh, except me. I'm number one actually. But everyone else is equal.

Too late, I'm number two. :)

Mike, thanks for the shout-out. While I do live in Santa Barbara, the beer festival was 3 hours away down by San Diego. Good thing the in-laws live there.

And as for I'm taking whatever they're giving: virgins, porn-stars, nurses, nuns, sadistic librarians, rugby players--I think you've given away too much of your fantasy life here, Mike.

Smitty, not that I have any firsthand knowledge, if that's the right body part to be first with, but my guess is if you're at a beer festival you're out of luck when it comes to virgins.

Thanks for the props, Mike.

And I'll side with Ed regarding the virgin thing.

Nah, that was the PG-rated version.

And with Ded taking the "experience" vs. innocence route, I think we'll have to declare the virgins the big losers here today.

Then again, virgins always lose in the end, don't they?

Like the old mason man told me years ago: "Women are like bricks, sooner or later they all get laid."

That's pretty cool . . . but also pretty creepy. LOts of cameras all over NYC, just filming us as we go about our days.

Big Bro is actually watching you in New York. He'll even let you watch too. I thought you might like that. I was trying to find real time traffic cameras around here when I found that link. I just love watching the traffic go by.
