A Microsoft employee, noting on his personal blog that the PC maker had ordered a batch of new Apple G5's, got canned from his job for it!

The organic movement is gaining momentum in, of all places, Harlem, East New York, and Brooklyn. At least 6,000 New Yorkers, including many in the poorer parts of the city, have joined together in buying clubs and CSAs to get organic vegetables fresh from the farm.

Remember when the prez staged that expensive fly-in to the USS Abraham Lincoln to announce the end of major combat in Iraq? So did a reporter at yesterday's news conference: "At that time you declared major combat operations were over, but since that time there have been over 1,000 wounded, many of them amputees who are recovering at Walter Reed, 217 killed in action since that date. Will you acknowledge now that you were premature in making those remarks?" Bush's response:
I said, Iraq is a dangerous place and we've still got hard work to do, there's still more to be done. And we had just come off a very successful military operation. I was there to thank the troops... The "Mission Accomplished" sign, of course, was put up by the members of the USS Abraham Lincoln, saying that their mission was accomplished. I know it was attributed some how to some ingenious advance man from my staff -- they weren't that ingenious, by the way.
Uh, right. In fact, the White House now admits it, and not the crew of the Lincoln, put up the sign.

Organic marketers are scrambling to cash in on the anti-junkfood movement by installing vending machines in high schools. In Rhode Island's Cranston High School West, Coke and candy bars have been replaced with soy chips, rice snack bars, pita chips and low-fat organic yogurt. And the movement is going national.

Trent Lott's suggestion for Iraq shows how deep his compassionate conservatism runs: "If we have to, we just mow the whole place down, see what happens. You’re dealing with insane suicide bombers who are killing our people, and we need to be very aggressive in taking them out."
