Out of the Blue

The updating timing here has been very inconsistent lately, which I hope to get a better handle on going forward. I have a particular reason to post this evening's news earlier than usual, so hopefully I can use that as a springboard to a new trend.

Play: Dibbles: Pro Pack.

Stories: How the Dark Knight Became Dark Again.

Army’s Pixel Camouflage Gets the Boot.
Media: Celebrities Read Mean Tweets.

Follow-up: "The Hobbit" Will Be A Trilogy After All? Thanks

5 billion sounds on the low side for military waste. They blew that on the Crusader artillery program and had nothing to show for it. And how about that story yesterday about the guy setting fire on the sub to get out of work early. $400 million for a minor fire? It was probably more like 40k or 400k worth of damage at best but it being the military you know they're going to tack on a few extra zeros. The US government simply has to look at making the services more efficient and cost effective. 600 billion plus per year is insane by any rationale and that doesn't even tie-in the costs of the all the various overlapping intelligence and security apparatus.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
