Has anyone even tested for explosive residue? Were there any Halliburton
employees in the area at the time? Where was Dick Cheney at 3:45 a.m.

No doubt you're troubled by asterisked dirty words while
casting about the internets—you know, the ones
like "bulls**t", "bi**h", and "Hi***ry Cli***n". If you're a Firefox
I've created the "Uncensor the
Internet" script for Greasemonkey (a Firefox plug-in that lets
you add all sorts of useful functionality to your web browser, available
here). If you're running
Firefox with the Greasemonkey plug-in, just install this script, and see
all the foul language that people are pretending they don't use.
I was struck by this bit from an USA
with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, conducted before an audience
at the University of Washington Business School:
Bill Gates, before we shipped Office, sent the team some mail, "Hey, you
know, I really love the user interface in the new Excel, but I didn't
know you were going to add so many new features." And he listed a couple
things he really liked. And they said, "Bill, those aren't new
features." (Laughter.) Bill said, "No, I'm an Excel expert. Those are
new features." And they said, "No, they've actually been there for three
releases." (Laughter.) So, it had features that even an expert couldn't
find, and yet they were very discoverable in the new user interface.
(Laughter), indeed. In a Biz-school environment,
surely there must have been (tears) as well?
Shameless self-promotion department: I got a "Thanks to" from
James Taranto's Best of the Web
Today today for pointing out the "URI Senate Doesn't Vote to Make Club
Apologize" headline (discussed here)
as a possible "Bottom Story of the Day".
