Word o’ the Week

The war on skeuomorphism heats up inside Apple as Scott Forstall is defenestrated.

No, no, no. Defenestration is last week's word.

This week it's skeuomorph.

Same Old

Rat in a drain ditch
Caught on a limb.
You know better
But I know him.

Like I told you;
What I said.
Steal your face
Right off your head.

It's A Lot.

Tom writes:
This morning representatives of the Department of Defense were making their daily briefing to President Obama. They told him that last night two Brazilian soldiers had been killed in Iraq.

To everyone's surprise, the President collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears. Finally, he composed himself and asked,

"Just how many is a brazillion?"

Donations Gratefully Accepted

So you're not a U.S. citizen but you want to donate to the Obama campaign? No problem!

Contrarian View

Brendan O'Neill says they brought it on themselves.
Over the past decade, leading scientists have repositioned themselves as modern-day diviners, particularly in the climate-change debate, where they insist that not only can they tell us what the world will look like in 50 years' time, but also what minute changes all of us must make now if we want that future world to be different. And their predictions are treated as unchallengeable...

In such a climate, is it really surprising that scientists who fail to predict a natural disaster, who do not fulfil the role of saviour of mankind that the science community has carved out for itself, can be demonised? If scientists play God, it's also possible for them to be treated as the Devil.

A Little Advice From Mr. Eastwood

Oregon's never been a swing state so we don't get the good ads. Fortunately they're all on YouTube.

Living in the Past

Obama said:
Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s.
The New York Sun replies:
If voters get the idea that Mr. Romney can deliver the foreign policy of the 1980s, when we defeated a vast, hostile conspiracy in Soviet Communism, then Mr. Romney is moving in the right direction. No one wants the social faults of the 1950s, but if Mr. Romney stands for the virtues of family and faith, of decorum and respect that flourished then, he'd be a refreshing change. If he stands for higher birthrates, as we had in the 1950s, he's a winner. Our guess is that if people really believe Mr. Romney will replicate the 1920s, they'll elect him in a landslide. The fact is that — for America and for the GOP — the 1920s, the 1950s, and the 1980s are a winning combination.
There's a reason I'm living in the past — it's nicer there.

When They Turn On You

romney_empty_chair.jpgFrom The Borowitz Report:
The White House today announced that it was offering a "substantial cash reward" for information leading to "the location and safe return of President Obama's mojo."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced the search with an air of urgency: "We will use every resource at our disposal to ensure the return of the President's mojo, and that goes double for his groove." ...

Even if the White House is successful in locating Mr. Obama's mojo, Mr. Carney acknowledged, it could take days or even weeks to get it working.
