I have had whiplash a couple of times — car accidents, of course — but I never, ever, hadthis treatment for it.
Someone told me I should blog this, and he was right: Apparently Mary K. LeTourneau appears ib the Washington Assessment of Student Learning test as an answer, and the Superintendent of Public Instruction is up in arms about it.
A great article about web usability with a sarcastic tone.
Who killed micro radio? It looks like Low Power FM isn’t going to happen. But FCC regulations were killing it anyway.
Alex Rodriguez is returning to Safeco Field for the first time today. There will be many boos. I guess I’ll be booing from my seat in front of the TV, since I don’t have tickets. But I loved this quote from Mariners president Chuck Armstrong: “Alex doesn’t like to hit with the roof open. If we can possibly leave it open, we’ll leave it open.”

“My question is what will stoners do in the future. Kozmo was a service built to service their needs.”
Everyone’s linking to this, but I can’t help it — it’s way to good not to link to. The Justice League of America has posted job openings.
“The song was found to be actionably indecent despite English accent and ‘ambient noise'”, according to the FCC. What song? Read the FCC’s Policy Statement regarding Broadcast Indecency to find out.
Speaking of spelling bees, here’s an online bee you can try.
21 years ago I was in my last spelling bee. It wasn’t as funny as this one.
