drug use mandatory in air force

Ah yes, another one of those articles that reminds me of how screwy the drug war is… It seems as though Air Force pilots are required to take speed when in a battle situation. And of course, i’m absolutely convinced that most truck drivers are on amphetamines when driving cross country (either illegal ones or those ones sold in every truck stop). It seems as though speed is required, condoned or at least tolerated for certain professions. And you wonder why we have a country who abuses amphetamines?

fighting for the letter i

internet or Internet? It seems as though i’m not the only one fighting for the role of the letter ‘i’ in our society.. and hell, i know that i’m not the only one who is grumpy about the different spellings/positionings of digital technology

web site vs. website
e-mail vs. E-mail vs. email

(i, of course, prefer website and email.. let them be their own unique words without having to be a descriptive of an old word.. they’ve matured to that level at least!)

village voice horoscope

I’m quite humored by this week’s Village Voice horoscope:

SAGITARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Happy Holy Daze, Sagittarius! I’ve been meditating on the perfect holiday gifts for you. What might inspire you to make best use of the astrological opportunities in the coming months? Here’s one idea: the entire costume collection of a defunct theater company. With your closet full of exotic and dramatic new choices, you could dress up in a variety of roles without becoming attached to any of them. And that, in my opinion, would be just what the soul doctor ordered for you to achieve prime psychological health during the Great Experiment that will unfold in 2003.
