Dick Cheney Is Right….

…. Yeah, for a change. Maybe for the first time. He called Barack Obama a one-term president and I think he’s going to be proven right. The Economist Magazine is calling him a failure in its latest issue though they certain feel he can change this still. If there were an election today with Obama […]

A busy blog post today: Politics, Promotions, Gay Marriage

COMPANY VIDEO First, I’ve posted a short video of Interstate. It’s not a commercial but a promotional video. The real difference is a commercial is trying to sell you something. We’re just telling you a bit about us. This was shot by a private contractor working for BellSouth/AT&T to attach to our Internet ads for […]

Nucor Suffers Crushing Defeat

The good, fantastic, thrilling news is that Nucor, thanks to our industry’s objections, had their complaint voted down 6-0 so there is no immediate effect. We Twittered and posted on our Facebook account earlier today. The official ruling may be read here.  Why did they lose? I don’t know. However, a 6-0 decision against them […]

An Enormous Post

Fake Steve Jobs (aka Dan Lyons) wrote an amusing piece in his blog today. As you may have seen, Microsoft was planning to sponsor an entire episode of Family Guy. It was to be 30 minutes and sans commercials. The payoff for them was having all sorts of Windows7 references built into the show. Microsoft, […]

A Long, Long Personal Nucor Rant

Let’s start with some social injustice commentary. A Louisiana judge recently refused to issue a marriage license to a couple because one was black and one was white. His claim was the children would suffer because they were bi-racial, and he claims he’s turned couples down for this before. There was quite an outcry as […]

Why am I up at 348am?

OK, it’s 452am as I start this post, because beforehand I checked my credit card receipts against my statements,  made a post over at the Panthers Hockey Message Boards,   filed my medical receipts for the week,  had a drink of water (twice 4x),  turned on the TV looking for something and found the last […]

The Dolphins! J-Lo! Twitter!

Thank God! The Dolphins finally won a game. And they did it convincingly! Skating ended up being cancelled today. Evan, John, Liz, and Pablo all bailed so I ended up home alone. More on that later. So, around 145 Karen showed up and we drove off to Landshark Stadium. That’s a great name for a […]

Screw You! :)

The Nucor (click for my previous Nucor articles) thing continues to escalate. I won’t bore you with details of today’s many inbound phone calls but will tell you I am both flattered that I am, apparently, considered the go-to guy in the industry for answers, and irritated at the amount of work it’s generated. At […]

Corporate Identity Theft Continues

There’s so much more now. This morning at 850am I received a call from Kathy at the AT&T Fraud department who said our lines were still being forwarded (which didn’t seem right because I can call myself and it rings at the office). She refused to call to fix it, saying that she wasn’t authorized. […]

Corporate Identity Theft, Losing an SUV, Celebrity Deaths

First, RIP to ex-heartthrob Farrah Fawcett of Charlies Angels fame who died earlier today of cancer. Many of my friends and I were fond of looking at her iconic poster from the late 1970s / early 1980s. The poster is one of the most iconic, if not the most iconic one of its era. She’ll […]
