I'm seeing that random blogspot blogs are being cited as spam blogs. I'm posting in case they come around deleting. I'm not done rescuing content from this site yet. Plus, I like have a backup when Dreamhost goes down. Fortunately, it's not as often anymore. Unfortunately, it's still a company that could charge customers about $9 million through a typo.

I know most regular readers aren't the first ones in line to raise their hands when asked if anyone trusts the New York Times for fair and balanced reporting, but still wow.
...the editorial standards at the Times: an article is “as accurate as it could have been” even if the facts are completely wrong. Even if the original court record was never checked. Even if crucial interviews were translated by partisan activists. Even if those activists then use the resulting article for fundraising efforts. At the Times, none of that matters. None of that’s worthy of a correction, even after the article’s facts have been proven wrong.
Is it any wonder newspaper readership is dropping?

Happy Freakin' New Year
The main blog has already gone down twice in the first 10 hours of 2007. Once was at least an hour and a half. We'll see how long this other downtime lasts. Fun fun.

Time for a new blog host. Have suggestions?
It's important I'm able to host about a dozen domains on the same account. None of the other sites are particularly large other than thebitchgirls.us, but I want them up without getting separate accounts.

I tried to comment, but couldn't. So I'll just wish Countertop a very happy 35th here. (Why on the Blogspot site? Because Dreamhost has been down or painfully slow all morning.)
The Supreme Court refused Monday to consider whether a Texas law making it a crime to promote sex toys shaped like sexual organs is unconstitutional.
An adult bookstore employee in El Paso, Texas, sued the state after his arrest for showing two undercover officers a device shaped like a penis and telling the female officer the device would arouse and gratify her.
The employee, Ignacio Sergio Acosta, says a Texas law outlawing the manufacture, marketing or dissemination of an "obscene device" including those shaped like sex organs is unconstitutional because it prevents individuals from using such devices, violating their right to sexual privacy.
Colorado, Kansas and Louisiana have held such laws unconstitutional, while Georgia, Mississippi and Texas have upheld them, said Acosta's lawyer in urging the Supreme Court to take the case.
An El Paso County court granted Acosta's motion to dismiss a criminal complaint against him, but an appeals court reinstated it, saying the Texas law did not infringe on private sexual behavior.
