So Meridee and I went to Century16 tonight. When we got back to the car, I noticed that the hazard lights were on. I thought that was odd until we noticed the giant gaping wound in the side of the car (passenger rear window). They stole the radar detect, fm transmitter, gps, etc.

Your Score: Orpheus
0% Extroversion, 66% Intuition, 100% Emotiveness, 80% Perceptiveness
You are an artist, an aesthete, a sensitive, and someone who has never really let go of that childlike innocence. To you, all of life has a sense of wonder in it, and the story of Orpheus was written about someone just like you.
When the Argo passed the island of the Sirens, Orpheus played a song more beautiful than the Sirens to prevent the crew from becoming enticed. When his wife died, he ventured into the underworld to charm Hades but, in his naivete, he looked back becoming trapped there.
You can capture your unique world view and relate it to others with the skill of a master storyteller. Your sensitivity and creativity make you a treasure to the human race, but your thin-skinned nature and innocence can cause you a lot of disenchantment and pain. What's doubly unfortunate is that, if you try to lose those traits, you never will, and everyone will be able to tell that you're putting up an artificial shell to prevent yourself from being hurt.

It Warrants a Blog
I just want to get this out in the open. Malachi and I, are getting a divorce. Some of you may be shocked by this news. This is because Mal and I try not to air our dirty laundry in public. So what went wrong? Once again, Mal and I try not to air our dirty laundry in public. It is safe to say however, that mistakes were made by both parties. I am lucky that Mal is still my friend, and I am sorry I had to hurt such a good person. Please have patients with he and I while we try to ses out this whole "life" thing.
Thanks to all,

Well, as it happens, I had to reboot again today (yes, it was the first time since the last post). And lo and behold, the same friggin problem.
After a few attempts to get timing right, here's how I got it to boot this time:

More info is available about New Mexico's new terminal. You know, the term 'spaceport' seems a lot cooler than 'space terminal' - they should use that instead :)

The govt says that China hacked the Pentagon. So do we believe that: 1) they did and the pentagon has shitty security; or 2) they didn't do it and they are just using this as an excuse for Bush to claim dictatorship per his recent survivorship changes? I guess there is also 3) that they are getting ready to start another war a'la 9/11 based on the cyberattacks like they simulated happening a few years ago.

DeFazio asks, but he's denied access
Classified info - The congressman wanted to see government plans for after a terror attack
Friday, July 20, 2007
The Oregonian Staff
WASHINGTON -- Oregonians called Peter DeFazio's office, worried there was a conspiracy buried in the classified portion of a White House plan for operating the government after a terrorist attack.
As a member of the U.S. House on the Homeland Security Committee, DeFazio, D-Ore., is permitted to enter a secure "bubbleroom" in the Capitol and examine classified material. So he asked the White House to see the secret documents.
On Wednesday, DeFazio got his answer: DENIED.
"I just can't believe they're going to deny a member of Congress the right of reviewing how they plan to conduct the government of the United States after a significant terrorist attack," DeFazio says.
Homeland Security Committee staffers told his office that the White House initially approved his request, but it was later quashed. DeFazio doesn't know who did it or why.
"We're talking about the continuity of the government of the United States of America," DeFazio says. "I would think that would be relevant to any member of Congress, let alone a member of the Homeland Security Committee."
Bush administration spokesman Trey Bohn declined to say why DeFazio was denied access: "We do not comment through the press on the process that this access entails. It is important to keep in mind that much of the information related to the continuity of government is highly sensitive."
Norm Ornstein, a legal scholar who studies government continuity at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, said he "cannot think of one good reason" to deny access to a member of Congress who serves on the Homeland Security Committee.
"I find it inexplicable and probably reflective of the usual, knee-jerk overextension of executive power that we see from this White House," Ornstein said.
This is the first time DeFazio has been denied access to documents. DeFazio has asked Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., to help him access the documents.
"Maybe the people who think there's a conspiracy out there are right," DeFazio said.
