    “Except maybe Bowen, who claims to have tracked $1.2 billion to $1.6 billion (note the uncertainty factor of $400,000 dollars)”

    That would be 400 Million not thousand.

    Order of magnitude you see.

    $400,000 will hardly buy you a good lunch with your Washington lawyer (hey, billable hours don’t come cheap you know).

    ThumbnailAdapted from The Breakfast Club- Science and Tech Thursday RawhideLast week I was surfing my Tech sites when I ran across an article celebrating the demise of Windows 7 OEM pre-installation packages which HP and Dell (among others) buy in bulk and re-sell at a reasonable price to roll-your-own and custom builders. The author’s expressed hope was that [...]

    Thank you for the response. The Corrente model then. Now all I have to do is hope I’ve been sufficiently entertaining.

    C’mon Al, you know you’re cool with us. If there is a ‘white list’ and you’re not on it, I’ll mention that there are other blogs. DocuDharma has been in continuous publication since 2007 and The Stars Hollow Gazette since 2010. They are moderated by TheMomCat and I and are left oriented, non-partisan sites that Google quite well for [...]

    I’d like to echo wendydavis @ 45-

    Does this mean new diaries are still allowed, but that they will just post directly to the Front Page @ MyFDL or does it mean something else?

    Thumbnail EK Hornbeck supports Zephyr Teachout. Unlike some I still have a thin shred of hope in the power of the ballot because I don’t think people are stupid as a whole, just slow to learn and easily influenced. We’ve had 40 years at least to prove that neo-liberal, trickle-down, perfect market economics do not work. [...]

    Thumbnail I tease my mother by calling her Emily after Emily Gilmore both because overall my family reminds me very much of the Gilmores and because she’s never met a brand name she didn’t like whereas I’m perfectly content to buy generic. I thank her among many things for a thorough grounding in the domestic and other [...]

    More Stockton-

    I have spent half my life trying to get away from journalism, but I am still mired in it—a low trade and a habit worse than heroin, a strange seedy world of misfits and drunkards and failures.

    Stockton-

    The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason. … Journalism is not a profession or [...]

    ThumbnailCross posted from The Stars Hollow Gazette and DocuDharma Marley was dead : to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it: and Scrooge’s name was good upon ‘Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. [...]
