Looks better today. We might get some sun. Not sure which way that big glob of rain is going to go.
My electricity is going out in a few minutes, because HELCO is doing some maintenance work, so all my little gadgets are charged: the cell phone, the Kindle reader and the Kindle Fire.
Couple of things I found out in Cyberland:
Remember Michael Moore's program, TV Nation? Here is a segment on how Mississippi ratified the 13th Amendment. In 1995.
And David Vickrey passes on this piece on Amazon's labor practices in Germany. What's really nice for them is that they get free, government subsidized labor. People on unemployment get paid out of public money in an "apprenticeship" program. Gotta go now but will finish posting up later. [Maybe tomorrow.]
At the very least there should be a sales tax on items bought online. This would not be regressive, because people (like me) who can afford to buy consumer goods online can certainly pay a little extra for their purchases.
