Unintentional Accuracy In Media



Four years after a bunch of oil-financed Saudis flew planes into the WTC, and three years after we jump to remove Saddam, a crackpot dictator made dangerous only because he was sitting on top of an ocean of crude, Bush decides to address our dependence on oil. It's this kind of quick thinking that we've come to expect from the president.

Too bad Ken Lay's busy in court, he'd be the perfect crony to put in charge of this new energy jive, uh, I mean policy.

Maybe next year Bush can talk about China holding our mortgage.

China's already holding our mortgage.

Oops. Read your post fast. You already know this. But most people don't.

Barack Obama was on Good Morning America this morning. Dare I hope that he's the breath of fresh air we need in Washington?

That's what happens when you drink before lunch.

One day, a man I was talking to about a job said to me, "I like the cut of your jib." That made me *so* happy. It wasn't that I wanted the job so much. (I didn't get it, btw. Which ended up being fine. I was lukewarm on the guy's jib, to be honest.) I was just pleased that someone had actually directed that ridiculous phrase at me. Really, who says "I like the cut of your jib" other than Mr. Burns on "The Simpsons"?

David, I just stumbled across your website and blog. I don't know how I missed them before, really, since I've wasted many, many a valuable work minute over the last few years looking at websites and blogs. But here I am now and I'm glad for it, and let me say furthermore:

I like the cut of your jib.

-Steve

To paraphrase a line from an old showtune..."there's no busymess like the oil busymess."
