I was told that an alert on TV said that BART and the union representing train operators and station agents had come to a tentative agreement and the impending strike had been averted. I went on SFGate to confirm it, and yes! Hooray! I won't have to swim across the bay to get to work tomorrow!

Then I made a big mistake.

I scrolled down to the comments.

I now want to kick everybody in the teeth.

When I saw the obituary for Billy Mays, my first thought was "Who says there's never any good news in the paper?"

Amazingly, doctors have pulled off a miraculous eleventh-hour resuscitation of the King of Pop. Michael Jackson is apparently not only alive, but ambulatory, as seen in this photo from the press conference: )

Michael Jackson, dead of a cardiac arrest. So now the real question becomes: who inherits the Elephant Man's bones? Or Macaulay Culkin?

*of Pop
**of Pop

Pornographers have made a million-dollar offer to Suleman, plus a year of health insurance for her family, if the mother agrees to star in a hard-core porn video. Vivid Entertainment spokeswoman Jackie Martin said the offer was sent Tuesday by overnight mail to Suleman's home address.
Stay classy, Vivid.

...wait, what am I saying?

So, the impeachment of Rod Blagojevich went through, and the result was that the Illinois Senate unanimously voted to kick him to the curb. He officially can never again hold state office in Illinois.

A lot of commentators were saying he was nuts for boycotting the trial because it meant he couldn't present a defense, instead going on nationally watched talk shows to insist on his innocence. I think I know his game, though: he's trying to pull a Liddy. He probably realized that his political career is kaput, and figured that if he managed to keep his name out there, and maybe sow some doubt about his guilt in the general public—even though there was no way he could in the Illinois Senate, or Federal court either most likely—he may be able to parley his notoriety into a job as a commentator. I hope he's unsuccessful; I hate seeing people get rewarded for being crooked.

What the fuck, people?!

Over on DailyKos, some people are already crying "Kristallnacht", which is seriously overstating things. But still. Fuck. Gassing babies? There are no words.

  • Just this last weekend part of the freeway interchange in Emeryville was destroyed, majorly screwing up the commute between the East Bay and San Francisco. We've been told that it was caused by an accident involving an oil tanker truck. But one blog is dedicated to uncovering the truth: that IKEA is behind 4/29

RIP Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

I haven't read a whole lot of his work, but Slaughterhouse Five and Mother Night were both fantastic.

You know those "Boys Are Dumb, Throw Rocks At Them" t-shirts? Well, the guy who makes them (yeah, it's a guy), Todd Goldman a.k.a. Todd Goliath, has been outed as a plagiarist. A painting he has up in a gallery has been traced from Dave Kelly's webcomic "Purple Pussy", and the "Eve L" character on several of his shirts is just Roman Dirge's Lenore but slightly taller and without pupils.

A lot of webcomic artists like Randy K. Milholland and Scott Kurtz have been getting the word out, and the news has also spread to art magazine Juxtapoz, the general comics news & rumors column Lying In The Gutters, MetaFilter, and Digg. My LJ is small-time, but hopefully this will inform a few people who might otherwise have not known and been inclined to buy one of this thieving bastard's shirts.
