Comcraptic 'service', blog negativity, asinine guidelines & itchy Taser fingers

Being internet deprived for the past few days, our cup runneth over on this borrowed computer:
  • Comcast customers, have no fear. If your modem/router thingy goes out and you are completely without internet access, don't worry, Comcast will rush right over--in 5 days. 5 freaking days, apparently because they're too busy doing installations for new suckers customers. It's Comcraptic!

  • RC from the Senate Site remarked in passing recently on the constant negativity toward local politicians who, although they may occasionally misbehave, are generally good people. We think he has a point. That doesn't mean we'll change our ways, partly because it's easier to poke fun at bad things than at good things, and partly because bad things evoke more passion. We have occasionally said not-mean things about senators (Sens. Bramble, Walker, and yes, even Buttars), but we usually enjoy poking them instead. We pledge to point out favorable things once in a while and, in fact, will be offering a thumbs up to (gulp) Buttars when Comcast deigns to restore service. (Only one of the two VoUs feels comfortable with posting mechanics. The other sends over material. Hence, one internet outage disables the whole blog.)

  • In today's D-News: The self-titled king of child porn gets 10 years in prison under federal guidelines, the same guidelines that sent Weldon Angelos to prison for 55 years for selling marijuana with an unused gun strapped to his ankle, when the prosecutor and judge felt he deserved 6-8 years. Too bad Angelos wasn't a child pornographer; he could have been out on the street so much sooner. (Disturbing reading: Utah federal judge Paul Cassell's June 26 statement to the House judiciary committee.)

  • In today's Trib: local cops' use of Tasers on people who are already handcuffed or who have committed minor offenses (okay, and others). One thing the article didn't cover is the too-frequent Tasering of developmentally disabled victims, when cops apparently can't or won't discern the difference between inability to comprehend an instruction and disobeying an instruction. Is the training adequate? (By the way, Trib, we never did get the story of the innocent guy who got Tasered in January because he couldn't figure out what was happening to him. How about a follow up?)

    When I first moved here, it took Comcast 5 days to come out and do the installation. I was totally shocked. Cox Communications (the cableco in Las Vegas) regularly did same-day repairs and installations. And never had hold times for support. And hired someone competent to answer questions. How Comcast can be so crappy when Cox was rockin' makes no sense to me.

    China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
    Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
    If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
    I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

    Online guitar lessons are a great way to learn guitar. Cheaper and more convenient than private studio lessons, the technology is now at a point where the difference in quality is nonexistent and actually has many advantages.
