    Okay, THAT really angers me. And deserves a diary of it’s own.

    Everybody, go read and contemplate on that link.

    Boxturtle (Calif actually had the chutzpah to argue that in front of a federal judge)

    Yeah, but she THOUGHT she won. Or at least I think she did. It’s very possible she suspected that the records in the Doris Day sleeves were NOT Doris Day.

    Boxturtle (Eventually, I hid the Cheech & Chong records in Glenn Miller sleeves)

    Yeah, I remember that. If you buy an indulgence, keep the receipt in case you get dumped to hell anyway.

    Boxturtle (keep the pink copy, white copy goes to St. Peter, original stays in church files)

    Ah, yes. I remember that. Mom played it a lot.

    Boxturtle (Trying to keep me from listening to the Rolling Stones)

    Is this the story?

    C&L has good stories, but is horribly indexed.

    Boxturtle (They need to hire a good webmaster)

    It came to me via my great grandmother. Where do such sayings come from? Why not “as sure as God made Red Ripe Tomatoes”?

    Boxturtle (Or “as sure as Satan made tofu bacon”)

    Officer Wilson in talks to resign.

    Says he wants to do it to protect fellow officers. But won’t if an indictment is returned. And doesn’t want to announce anything prior to the GJ decision for fear of looking guilty.

    Boxturtle (Don’t worry, Officer Wilson. The fix is in)

    Not sure how Texas does Amber alerts, but I’ve signed up for them on my Iphone and I get them for whatever locality I happen to be in. Even if just passing through.

    Boxturtle (I wonder how many amber alerts are actually found by smartphone users)

    Dunno. Facebook is based on the premise that they will find out everything about you and being able to make a non-person account would be in direct violation of that. I suspect they do a lot behind the scenes to link accounts to real persons.

    Boxturtle (Facebook hates privacy)

    I liked the speech too, though I read it afterwards rather than listening to it live. As with all things Obama, we must wait to see what he actually does, as opposed to what he says. I think his stated actions will be a significant improvement in our current situation. I wish this Obama had [...]

    Facebook IS God. Omniscience. Omnipotent. Omnipresent. Answerable to none.

    Boxturtle (And capable of damning people to internet hell)

    A church is a business, just like any other. Seems like every business now has a facebook page. I wonder if they get user data from facebook about their “friends”.

    Never been on facebook, not going there either. Though I have been tempted to create a totally bogus facebook page so I can “visit” with friends or comment to my local news stations. But then I wonder how long it would take facebook to determine that Mr. Bogus was actually me and update their back [...]

    Why are you wasting time with news like that? Don’t you know Snooki is down to 99lbs? Ty Herndon is gay? And African Sushi is shaking up Japan?

    Boxturtle (The above are actual front pages stories on “news” sites that have no room for Black Elk)

    This is excellent. Thanks for keeping us updated on this. Oddly, my local newspaper, CNN and Fox do not consider this worthy of reporting.

    Boxturtle (Nevertheless, they seem to find time to report that Snooki is down to 99lbs)

    (Yesterday I permanently deleted my Facebook account.)

    BAWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    How do you feel about Santa Claus and the tooth fairy?

    Boxturtle (Delete a facebook account and only the advertisers can access from then on)

    Yeah, I get them too. When my credit card company calls, it shows their name on the caller id. If I don’t see that name, I know it’s bogus. I really wish the FCC would take some time and hunt down the worst of these spammers and make major public examples of them. Like fine [...]

    I’m starting to get “survey” calls on my cell phone. When i gripe, they say they are exempted because it’s a 1st amendment political survey. As soon as I hear 1st amendment, I hang up. I finally got pissed enough to have my lawyer send a registered letter to the survey company demanding removal. No [...]

    MUCH better! My ancestors came over in the early 1800′s or so, depending on the ancestor. I was a kid at a party once when a Blue Blooded Snob(tm) told my Grandmother that HER ancestors came over on the Mayflower. My grandmother replied “That’s probably good. The immigration laws are much stricter now”. Boxturtle (The [...]

    It’s not that you’re a luddite, afraid of the technology and worried that it will take your job. It’s that you’re intelligent and know what will be done with the data once you feed it in.

    Boxturtle (You’re not paranoid if they really are out to get you)
