Swimming with the Razorfishes

This is rather surprising.

Until recently, whitehouse.com was a porn site.  However, should you visit whitehouse.com today, you’ll be treated to a stream of political news.

Is it possible that news is more profitable than porn?  Is whitehouse.gov getting so much traffic that mistyped URLs make money?


People who prefer lazy initialization often seem to be rather strident about it.

In the 42nd St. terminal. A guy picks me out of the crowd of people swarming off of the A. "How do I get out of here?!" He pleads as commuters swarm past us. It is so pathetic that I can't come up with a sarcastic answer. I point to the stairs, he turns on his heel and stomps off.

Did everyone read this “Dinner with Dubya” article in Vanity Fair?  Interesting.
