Printer rec?

Looking to get a low cost printer, only needs to print black ink. Doing walk lists and phonebank lists for a genuine for real honest to goodness grassroots campaign, and don't want to invest in something that's going to cost piles of money for ink supply. Don't even care if the machine doesn't last beyond election day, just need to have printing available short term.

So, any recommendations?

Name change

An old joke came to mind today:

A man goes to court to petition for a name change.

The judge asks, "What's your name?"

The man answers, "Jack Shit."

Cringing, the judge says, "What do you want to change it to?"

The man answers, "Joe."

Today it was announced that Chuck Todd would be replacing David Gregory...

Hillary Clinton, love her or hate her...

Hillary Clinton, love her or hate her…

Whether on television or the blogosphere or in social media, her every utterance seems to bring out the inner-oracle in growing numbers of people. Along with all the “I said way back when” and “I told you then” comments, there are the more oblique “if you couldn’t see that” shots peppering the commentary.

To be sure, the battalions of crystal ballers are nothing new, and their accuracy always tends to the murky until hindsight can be filtered for comfortable adjustment. That said, there’s just something about Hillary that has them racing to sputter their backward-prognostications with amusing and very real predictability.

I just turned down $1000.

Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd utter. But chances are I wouldn't have turned it down if I hadn't just seen a news story on this particular scam.

Phone rings, I answer. It's a recording, male voice that sounds like a game show announcer. He's congratulating me because "someone" referred me to receive a free medical alert device (as in I've fallen and I can't get up) AND $1000 in groceries!!! Uh huh. Then he directs me to press a certain key to 'accept' this largesse. Instead of responding or pressing any keys I just let the phone sit there; after a minute it clicks a few times, then disconnects.

Too bad, he just sounded sooooo happy! But I'll bet there are enough seniors who bite on this. Let them know not to bite, because this one bites back. Scary.

A question for our legal pros:

For the trial of Bush/Cheney et al (were it to happen), how would voir dire be handled? Or would a jury even be impaneled?

(Question just came up in conversation, thought this would be a good place to ask.)
