Comments: Okay, I guess I'll start getting back to it

If you liked Abu Ghraib, if you loved G'itmo, then you'll LOVE John Roberts!

Bush gave him the one-up today.

Umm... I don't see what the problem with John Roberts is. He's conservative, but not dumb. He's an educated man, and although it's not a great decision, it was definitely one of the best choices among the realistic choices for the justice job. We all knew Bush would go with someone conservative, but he pleasantly surprised me, for once, by going with someone who seems smart and fairly balanced.

Just poking fun. I'm glad he got the bid for chief instead of Scalia, who seemed to be the only other consideration. Gotta love that "originalism."

Ah. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way.

Re: Google Talk -- I'm glad that at least they chose to use Jabber protocol, even though they won't allow Google Talk users to message other Jabber servers, and vice versa, which is kind of weird. But nonetheless, you can access Google Talk from Gaim, or Trillian, or any other multi-platform messenger program. And it will get Jabber a lot more attention than it otherwise would receive, which is defintely a plus. And maybe Google will open up to other servers: at least the server, which is the biggest.

If you haven't noticed, I've recently gotten myself a Gmail account, mostly because Gmail plays nice with Firefox, while Yahoo! Mail doesn't. So, while I agree with you that Google is growing at a rate worthy of extra attention, I don't think that its worth damning Google before they lose their good reputation, because up till now they've been following their "Don't Be Evil" corporate manta amazingly well.

Or, to put it another way: I, for one, welcome our new Google overlords. :)
