Ready Roundup

Ahhh ... Sunday morning Christmas tree trimming, complimented by a morning shot in the coffee and NFL Countdown on the TV. And to compliment your day: these links.
  • Did Ronnie and Maggie make whoopee? Seems Oliver Stone thinks so. Still, some images are better left unfilmed ... like, for instance, all 173 minutes of Alexander. (Via FARK)

  • Footfault, McEnroe. We all saw this coming, didn't we? From, say, the very first moment CNBC announced the concept? I'm always glad for the little things in life ... things you can count on. Like the ability of media outlets to consistently demonstrate that their creative process is no more sophisticated than a game of pin the tail on the donkey. Hey look! I got John McEnroe on the ass!

  • Two steps back. As I've forecasted, more proof today of widening fissures in the air transportation security system, as Nevada's Elko Regional Airport becomes the first airport to try to ditch TSA screeners and return to private employees. I can't tell you how insecure this makes me feel. As if the one thing we need in our airports today is more screeners who struggle with showing up to work on time (let alone basic English). Honest to God: if we go back to the private security firms, I'm getting out of the air travel business.

  • Something new for you to worry about: Cyberterror. It's a threat that makes spam look like, well, lunchmeat. But don't worry ... at least Geedub isn't concerned about bioterrorism in the nation's food supply (even if outgoing HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson is).

  • The next blog: House of Shite. "Shite" as in "Jack Shite," a "virtual DIY recording artist associated with the Songfight! virtual community. FYI, I find these "Next Blogs" by clicking the "Next Blog" button in the upper right-hand corner.

  • Have you seen me? If so, call.
