Ha ha ha, I can't e-mail *anyone*, because aforementioned emergency backup mail doesn't have any sort of up to date address book. So, I don't know anyone's address. *Magnificent.*

And yes, my mail is currently down, should be tonight (*fingers crossed*) or later this week, if my karma is bad. Oh, and no big news links updates until it's back up. Lack of planning on my part rules.

Except, fo course, those people who have their e-mail listed on their LJ homepage. Just sayin'.

OK, groceries.

Tzo, mail is more or less up and running fine, you can continue to e-mail me like usual. I say 'more or less' because of some sporadic outages which no one but me is likely to notice. But hey.

Tonight I'm gonna post like it's 1999.

[EDIT: I speak too soon! Mail down again. (7:20 PM EDT.)]

Here's a good test to see the bias of your news source. How are they describing the Pledge case being thrown out of the Supreme Court on a technicality? NBC was describing it as the Court defending the words, but it's not, really. They're just saying they don't want to deal with it. Any fan of Law & Order knows the difference. Anyways.

Huh. The new Iraqi government doesn't want to give contractors immunity. I wonder why.

DeLay to face ethics complaint in Congress. This could get messy.

Bush has returned us to the days of big government.

Is the death penalty assigned based on events that haven't happened?
