As mentioned a few weeks back, I'm about to take our new rig on the road for a couple of weeks of vacation. The tech and biz blogging neurons will be standing down for some R&R; travel blogging may occur if bandwidth and attitude permit. I'll be back with more of the usual on 10/12 at the latest.
While I'm missing, let me commend you to Winds of Change, where I've recently become a contributor. You can start with this magisterial post by Armed Liberal on the nature of terror.
As my last act, I'm going to expand the scope of my Dubious Distinction award to CBS News to Viacom generally. While they have finally acknowledged malfeasance in the specific matter of the forged memos, they seem to be in nothing more than incremental damage control mode on the larger implications. As someone said - for those of us of age and memory - it's the "modified limited hang out option" over again. That's likely to be as effective this time as last. CBS News is looking more and more like a party organ media outlet. If they blundered into that position, then Sumner Redstone is asleep at the switch. If they walked there deliberately, it's a reprehensible violation of trust by a network that claims access to a large chunk of the public airwaves.
I'm outta here....
