Quote of the Day & Other Things

"It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master."

~ Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

It's another rainy, foggy morning, with a temp of 50 degrees. It will keep the wildfires away from here, which is good. The fires in the Interior are still expanding, unfortunately, and many homes are now threatened. Fire officials have called for the voluntary evacuation of a small town to the east.

The new Attorney General is calling for "sweeping changes" to the ethics laws, in the aftermath of the frivolous complaint debacle surrounding Governor Palin. He
proposes putting the cost of "bad faith" complaints on the people who bring them and wants to ban abusers of the system from filing any more complaints. It's about flippin' time. You can read about it here.

It's fun watching the Palin-hating "Alaska mafia" scurry, now that they've been outed on video, with faces & names exposed for all to see. You want to see? Go here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sadly the video is not playing right now... at least not for me - it just goes into load mode and never starts. Oh well. Let's hope the AG can change things because it's been ridiculous.

Teresa, the AG can only suggest ways to improve it. It's up to the Legislature to draft the revision(s), if any.

I clicked on the link & it loaded fine, but I'm using Firefox. IE may be a problem (and usually is), which is why I switched.

Oh I only use Firefox... Safari on occasion because there is some weirdness with FF on a Mac when at typepad sites that won't allow comments. (very annoying)

I just checked. It works in Safari - maybe it's the ad bloc plus I have on FF that is blocking the vid. Interesting.
