Oh my goodness!
Apparently the $400 million gov't contract Global Crossing won was the result of a bidding process influenced by Clinton Administration corruption and bribery. This is way worse than anything that can be dug up on Enron, friends.
This is kind of what I look like, I guess. Make your own virtual rough approximation at My Virtual Model and then shop with him or her at Land's End. Only they couldn't find my virtual model and so I guess I'm doomed to be nearly naked.
Virtual Muddle!

Don't forget to take a guess at mlife.
If I were a reviewer for GamePro magazine, here's who I would be:
Victor's GamePro Alter Egos

Go, Tom, Go!

A top White House source noted to the DRUDGE REPORT, with irony, the direct McAuliffe connection with Winnick and GLOBAL

"McAuliffe is a guy who made millions and millions and millions off this GLOBAL CROSSING stock? And the company goes bankrupt.
And he has the gonads to criticize anyone on ENRON!" blasted the Bush insider who asked not to be identified.

Here's a case in point which illustrates something I've been tracking for a while now in regards to the strong media-bias against Catholicism and Catholics.

The pope comes out and gives a very pro-marriage statement:

EWTN News Story

However, the only part of the story which makes it into the secular press acounts (Reuters, et al.) is what it says AGAINST divorce.

The media tries to portray Catholicism as a religion of "Nos," when in actuality it is a very affirming religion: a religion of "Yeses," which allows for the greatest degree of liberty for the entire human person.

Just don't expect to read anything about it but negatives in the media.

Okay... one more.

It is estimated that since 1973, 102 million people have beeb born in this country and 40 million have been 'aborted.' That is to say that 40% of the people of my generation are not alive today... they have been killed. Moral tragedy aside, think about this the next time you wonder why our economy is in a slump and social security is quickly becoming bankrupt. A consumer economy cannot survive without consumers and a taxpayer state cannot survive without taxpayers. What is reaped is what has been sown which in this case is nothing. We had better hope for a massive influx of immigrants: the legal, taxpaying kind, not the kind who immediately go on welfare.

Blah. I want something flat that I can stick to my forehead and will be like adding a four-foot antenna to my brain.

Spooky... and only $125!
Lion's Blood

I wonder if this novel is really as interesting and deep as it appears to be.
I wonder why lawyers who appeal to the "junk-food," criminal defense never use the line "Is THIS the face which lunched a thousand chips?!"
Kate and Leopold

It's reviews like this which make me appreciate Steven Greydanus above any other movie critic. It's like he knows what will annoy me most about a movie and then latches on to that. Most movie reviewers can't do that. Like Ebert, most movie reviewers are too fey and faddish. But not Greydanus. He's funny. His reviews rock.
Glass Harmonica

I of course want one.

Australia Fires Hit Koala Habitat

What's even more sad then imaginging the sad little faces of a thousand Koala bears being incinerated is to think that the kids who set these fires are between nine and fifteen years old.

My goodness! And this is how is starts. Next thing you know, there'll be nothing left on Earth but this strange sponge-like creature.
MediaOne/RoadRunner is no more, and in order to keep my internet service, I had to install this goofy Comcast software (you know Comcast. They're the ones with the "all-new Internet," -- you only see their commercials about 12 or 13 times in any given half-hour period on any cable channel). Well, the software contains spyware. I could see it running down there in the corner. I didn't like that so I think I've disinstalled it. We shall see.
Oh, and my cold is almost gone. Yippee!
So I was all bummed about my PCS phone breaking, mainly because I couldn't get another one. So I called Sprint to cancel my service and they said, "Hey there, you! You've earned $150 in equipment credit for being such a loyal customer these past three years! Why don't you pick out a new phone free for nothing?"
So I did. It's cool. You can download MIDI rings to it. I hope I can make my own. Maybe get the Pater Noster going. Or maybe some Robot Love.

It wasn't so long ago that the Democrats were in a tizzy about how to best attract more religious voters (since they seemed to have cost them the last election). Well, it looks now like they've realized they have no moral cache and that they're falling back on that fine old Democratic tactic: If you can't join 'em, smear 'em!

I have had, and still do in fact, a bad cold and can't think.
Best of Notable Quotables -- 2001

Always good for a laugh:

Charles Gibson: "Have you ever – it just occurred to me – have you ever, in the first hundred days, consulted or called former President Clinton?"
President Bush: "No, I haven’t."
Gibson: "To talk to him?"
President Bush: "No, I have not."
Gibson: "Don’t feel the need?"
