catastrophic failures of judgement

I’m not really panicked about SARS, since the fatalities so far have all tended to be the aged. Unless this little crisis drags on for another decade or two, I think I’m out of the danger zone. Some people have suggested that it might be a good idea — I think one of them actually used that term — to intentionally contract SARS while there are still unoccupied respirators in the Toronto area. I’m not sure that’s a great plan, but I am sure that this assclown has a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad plan. I mean, really. There are better ways to demonstrate that you’re not under the thumb of The Man than by endangering your fellow Torontonians.

Some of you might have seen the comic before it was removed, in which case you will likely appreciate, as George did, that they missed a golden opportunity to use “Cherry Tart” in their parody. Now, though, they’ve been “asked” to take it down, in what seems like a case of lawyer-letter attempting to trump parody and fair use. I guess it’s possible that the parody angle doesn’t cover their use, since they were intending to parody American McGee’s mauling of classic stories and not the Shortcake franchise itself, but I have hope.

I don’t have a lot of hope left for the Leafs at this point, what with them being down 5-1 with the third period about to begin. Not that the score reflects the play in this game inaccurately. Bah. At least Beltzner will be able to sleep tonight.

Some years ago, Chris bought a car from this lunatic. I wonder if that’s like buying drugs and supporting terrorists, or driving an SUV, or something. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the kidnapping, dog-biting Syracuse tree:

<blizzard>I’m never too jaded to loot and burn
<blizzard>I’m just waiting for my chance
