Out of the Blue

Well, we're on take-two of our car situation after our mechanic replaced the switch that turns the dome light on and off when the driver-side door is opened and closed. He charged the battery and let it sit overnight and says it didn't lose any voltage, and it started fine today when we tried it, so maybe this was fixed that easily. It will be neat if it was, as it cost all of $65.00 (not counting a new battery) after we were concerned that we had developed one of those electrical gremlins that ends up requiring the car being replaced, which doesn't seem implausible for a ten-year-old car.

That article on HSBC makes me see red! Fucking outrageous!

Yeah, but just think, if they do it two more times, they'll lose the whole bank due to the three strikes law! So, they had better watch themselves.

Seriously though: sell a key of weed to an under cover cop for $2000 and you get 20 years. Launder BILLIONS of dollars of heroine and cocaine revenue and do no time. Who says white collar crime doesn't pay?

Also, too: Matt Taibbi is one of the best writers on the Internets.
