New York Times

The NY Times has discontinued their Times Select subscription program and made much more of their 150+ years of content available for anyone.

A couple of interesting news articles:

The first mention of the World Wide Web in the Times in February 1993. According to the article, the purpose of the web is "[to make] available physicists' research from many locations".

Early report of Lincoln's assassination.

From the first year of publication, a listing of the principle events of 1851.

A report on the sinking of the Titanic.

Neat! Unfortunately, a lot of stuff you still need to pay for.

”And know I will show you the most excellent way. If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain; faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Report: Seattle Residents Awaiting Arrival of SLUT Trolleys
A new trolley line in Seattle has residents buzzing about its supposedly salacious name.

Officially, the new line along the downtown waterfront is the South Lake Union Streetcar, but that's only after its first name, the South Lake Union Trolley, or SLUT, was changed, locals told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Vulcan, the developer of the former Cascade neighborhood, said that the SLUT acronym is just an urban legend, but it seems here to stay, the paper reports.

"We're welcoming the SLUT into the neighborhood," Jerry Johnson, 29, a part-time barista at Kapow! Coffee house told the Post-Intelligencer. The local haunt already has sold out its first run of "Ride the SLUT" T-shirts.

Gregg Hirakawa, a spokesman for the Seattle Department of Transportation, told the paper the term "streetcar" was selected because it sounded more modern than "trolley."

Hello NBC.. is anybody there? Last Comic Standing is supposed to be a show about comedy. How 'bout showing some? In part of the show last week, you showed 1 joke! ONE?! UNO! And then in the head to head, Bill Bellamy did a "set" that was just as long as the comics on the show. Come on NBC. Geeze

Micheal Vick = POS

Ralphie May and Gabriel Iglesias = Funny and fat too ;)

Rutgers Player Sues Imus & CBS Radio
NEW YORK - A member of the Rutgers women's basketball team sued Don Imus and CBS on Tuesday, claiming the radio personality's sexist and racist comments about the team damaged her reputation.

Vaughn was humiliated, embarrassed and publicly mocked for the comments, the lawsuit claims. Her attorney, Richard Ancowitz, said: "The full effect of the damage remains to be seen."

Are you kidding me? Money Grubbing Lawyers anything for a buck.

Verizon Highs and Lows

Verizon Highs and Lows

First the high.. got us some FIOS installed last week.. woo doggie.. more to come on that.

The low.. it's really Verizon Wireless. The wife needed to update her phone.. it was two years old and showing it's age. So.. we swung by the VZW store. First, the sales guy was creepy, like real creepy, then he proceeded to tell us that we were on a corporate plan, and he could sell us a new phone but it would cost us an additional $80. We should really go back to our company. OK.. what company? He couldn't tell us. Anyway.. I got home.. fired up the FIOS, did everything online in about 10 minutes. Thanks.. nice customer service.

On the customer service flip side.. I bought a new TV from Panasonic. They called the day after I ordered it, asking me to call them back to setup delivery. So I called back, the couldn't have been nicer, told me that the local delivery guy would call me on Friday or Monday. Well.. corporate called me back on Friday, apologizing that they delivery guys hadn't called yet, they were having computer problems, it wouldn't be until Tuesday morning that they would call. Uh.. OK.. no problem.. thanks for the call. Sure enough.. Tuesday at about 9:30, Jim called from the delivery company, apologizing for not getting to me sooner (are you serious?!), asking if it would be possible for them to deliver on Friday between 9 and 11 (2 hour window?! Whoa), sure.. that'd be great, then he asked if this was the best number to call so that the driver could let me know that he was a 1/2 hour away. A++ from Panasonic.. I think I'd buy from them again.

VZW still sucks. Not 100% with Verizon FIOS.. pretty close.. a couple of things tick me off.. but I'll try and get over it.

Jack and Dot got FIOS, screwed up their phone line, the internet would not work with any antivirus software running (including their version) Jack is still fuming that he paid for the whole house to be rewired with fiber optics and still got squat.... He is now back with AOL and DSL (which I am sure sucks just as bad)

Mountains white with foam

Mountains white with foam

June is more than halfway over, summer is almost officially here. I've been through 2 commencements, 1 HS, 1 College, both too long, but what else is new. One of the highlights was at the FSC graduation when the singer was belting out God Bless America, and sang "From the oceans, to the praries, to the mountains... white with foam... " Too funny. Then we were blessed with "Don't Stop Believing" which was fantastic... if you were deaf.

At the FHS graduation, someone had the brilliant idea to march them in at a snails pace, but I do have say, once they got in, it did move along at a pretty good pace.

In both cases, I could have used the beer belly. It might have been more enjoyable.

Those are not the words?! I like that beer belly thing...once I get a taste back for beer maybe I'll try it out.
